Stampotique and sculptures

First things first........I've recently made quite a hard decision and have stepped down from the Stampotique design team. I'm going to miss working with the rest of the fabulous design team but the time has come for me to move on. I will of course still be working with Stampotique images as I love them to bits!
 Onto other things...........today I visited an open garden with a friend....it was a joy walking around in flip flops in glorious sunshine at this time of year. The garden hosts a sculpture exhibition at this time of year and these are a few of the things I saw. I wanted this hessian hares head to come home with me......but.....it was TOOOOO expensive!
There was also this hares head.....it was BIG.....about 4' long!

 This rope spiders web.....thank goodness there wasn't a spider to match!

 and these really fun wooden....huge.....conkers, on the ground and hanging from the trees

 a lovely carved wooden owl.....again huge!

and finally this metal seed pod thingy........I wanted this one too!

Can you imagine playing conkers with those giants. Injuries would follow I'm sure. Looks like a garden made to lose yourself for awhile.

You will be missed on the team Sue, it's been great working alongside you.
What fab sculptures! Such a shame you didn't have a bag big enough to slip one or two in!!! x

Ohh, the conkers bring back instant memories from my childhood. My gran used to live in a park, and in conker time, we made little animals with the conkers and match sticks. That looks like one big and nice garden!
