A week long sabbatical from the internet reminded my creative juices that they are still present and correct despite being redundant for some time so I set them the task of finally doing something pretty with the beach stones and shells I squirrelled away from my Donegal trip.
I love the results, especially on the shells. They look really lovely occupying tabletops and windowsills.
I also spent some time customizing a sad little multi-frame that has been boring me to tears on my bedroom wall for some time!
A pair of scissors, some washi tape and an afternoon on my bedroom floor doing some cuttin' and pastin' the old fashioned way has revived this frame and made it something a little more unique and personal to me.
My Mom brought me back this Parrot's tail feather last week after a trip to the Gardening Centre where she rescued it from the floor.
It's so beautiful and the other side of it is canary yellow.
Being in the country birdsong, nests in our roof and watching for different species at the birdfeed in our garden has become part and parcel of our daily living.
We're even lucky enough to spy beautiful pheasants running through the fields surrounding our house occasionally.
I'll be sorry to swap the sparrows and the starlings for pigeons when I move back to London!
