Summer break

Is 6 weeks really over already?! Hard to believe....I feel like I could do with another week with my boys at least! Maybe it was the holiday to Lacanau, France slap bang in the middle made it all go so quickly! I won't bore you with all my holiday snaps: here are just a few. It was most relaxing, very hot and the company was great. I didn't want to come home, and that isn't like me at all!

Having said that, it was good to get in the shed after the time away and have some fun!

Meet Margot. She is designed to stand in the garden

(Her copper "legs" simply push into the soil)

And Gilbert, who is suitable to display inside or out...

 This little anglerfish is fun. His new owner has named him Elvis!

In a moment of madness I have signed up to do 3 fairs in November/ Dec!
So I am saving even the tiniest little bits of wood to make Christmas tree decorations!

Sorry the "C" word just slipped out then, I do apologise! It is a bit early to be talking about it already....but I do try to be organised (it just never seems to work out for me!)

Anyway, I hope you all had as good a summer as I did. The sun has reappeared in these parts recently, so we will make it last as long as we can!


  1. It's never too early for Christmas! Glad you had a nice summer and I am loving you new pieces - the Church is amazing!

  2. It's good to hear you had a lovely summer. Holidays seem to go way too fast.
    Loving your new birds, the scissors are genius.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Anne xx

  3. looking forward to seeing what you come up with for the C.......!! fairs.

  4. Simply awesome. I love to see old things repurposed with a new sense of being. An old land revisited. A palimpsest of sorts :)
    Hope you don't mind if I add you to the list of favorite sites on my blog.
    What an awesome way to reinvent scissors :)

  5. Wht amazing new creations! I always want to own everything you make - each thing just impresses me all over again - I love your collages and one day I'm going to treat myself to a print, and your driftwood work is out of this world! It is always a visual treat when you write a blog post! Lucy

  6. I love that part of France - we've stayed a couple of times at a little place called Porges and when I am there, I can understand how people decide they are going to chuck in their own lives for a new one in rural France.

    I'm in love with your new pieces. And it's never too early for the c word in my book!

  7. What dear little decorations and I love Margot !

  8. Hi, your creations are beautiful. I usually visit your blog almost every day. Bye

  9. Love those Christmas decorations. So unusual and cute.


  10. Margot, Gilbert, Angler and all are wonderful and so 'you.' Love to see creativity at work! Looking forward to all the holidays, if only to see your work.

  11. Oh my goodness. Christmas tree decorations! They are FAB!
