Hello - still here!

Sorry I've been off grid for a while. Seem to be in a bit of a 'fug'. Once I get myself out of it, I'll start posting regularly again :)

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas :)

Meanwhile, I wanted to post this picture of a gift I made for my daughter's American host family who have been very kind to her. Of course I couldn't post it earlier in case they saw it!


I got the idea from an item I had seen in a lovely little gift shop in Brixham. I'd love to say who the original artist was, but I didn't write the name down - I would be happy to credit the artist if anyone knows their name. It was such a lovely idea - simple yet very effective. 
The pebbles came from Cowes beach on our visit to the Isle of Wight. I bought the box frame online.

I was very pleased with the effect and the family seemed to like it too :) 

Back very soon and here's wishing you all a healthy, happy and simple 2016 x

  5. I love your pebble art. My son and his girlfriend made one for me this Christams. They picked the pebbles and a piece of driftwood off Redcar beach
