TEA T-OWL?

 This owl is made from a heart shaped tea strainer that I found while out and about somewhere! The VERY corny title for this blog post is courtesy of my husband!

 Hopefully you can see the 3d-ness of it in this pic. Not sure where he is going to end up, might just stay hanging from the light on my work desk which is where he is now.

I'll leave you with a shot of my garden looking pretty bare and brown which is to be expected at this time of year. We have spent a few hours this week now that the weather is a bit warmer (comparatively!) doing some of the jobs we did not get around to or weren't here to do late last year. As you can see breaks for coffee and biccies were also taken!

You have inspired me and I bought some old spoons for 50p for 3 at a flea market to have a go at the last ones you made - wish me luck!
