For years this little frog hung on the end of the pull switch in my bathroom........now he is just a lonely little Frog Prince waiting for a princess to kiss him.........hhmmmm maybe I should make him one:)
I spent this last weekend in London......my friends daughter lives there so we had a place to stay!!
Saturday saw us heading to the Museum of London to see The Cheapside Hoard, an amazing collection of 16th and 17th century jewellery that was discovered in 1912 hidden buried in a cellar
It was gobsmacking to think that this stuff was so old, it was intricate and absolutely beautiful.
In the evening we stayed in the city to go on a Jack the Ripper walk......we have wanted to do this for ages so it was good to finally do it! I thought it might be a bit creepy but it wasn't too bad!!!
Sunday morning saw us getting up early and heading back into the city to join a mud-larking tour along the banks of the Thames. It was lead by an archaeologist and it was really interesting!!!Last time I was in London I bought a necklace made from sections of old clay pipe stem that had been found on the banks of the river......now I have some of my own to make something with.
All in all it was a great weekend! Can't wait till next time!
I thought it was a good idea to join in with a calendar page challenge.
I have been sorting out in my studio (again.....it seems to be a never ending battle with the piles of "stuff") and came across this page.......I never even started filling it in!!
Oh well, it seems that deadlines and me don't go together!
Hello and welcome!
I like to travel and I'm incurably curious. I love my garden and I like to make things,
I like altered art and mixed media and have a leaning towards the slightly darker, weirder side of things....as you may notice!
