This week on Etsy i stumbled across stylegarden's shop where there is a most eclectic selection of recycled/upcycled cake stands.
This led me search out other cake stands made in a similar vein. I love the thought of one last piece of a crockery set lurking, unloved in a charity shop somewhere when suddenly one of these creative individuals spots it's potential.
Not only can these stands be used for cakes and fruit but think how pretty they would look displaying your favourite jewellery, for example. The last one could also be used as a decorative plinth to display a small sculpture.
Hope you enjoy visiting the following Etsy shops.

I popped out to the shop the other day and on my way back home i glanced up. The colour of this rose against the blue sky literely stopped me in my tracks. I could not help but think only He creates such beautiful colour combinations.

I've been working in my sketch book this week hoping to turn these drawings into linoprints very soon. also i picked up the most lovely wee silver plated spoon in an antique shop and i'd love to turn it into a piece of wearable art, any advice/suggestions?

The lavender that i planted some three years ago has gone a wee bit wild and is taking over part of the path. I having been saying all year that i must get round to tying it up, needless to say i never have. However God must have known what he was doing since every time i walk down the path i brush against the over hanging lavender and the beautiful scent is released. Now, had i tied it back, as i had intended, i would not smile every time i pass.
This is my first week joining in at "My creative space" @ Kootoyoo.
Lets hope i get it right?

I finally replaced the tatty, battered paper bag i had been using to store my ribbons in with some shiny new Kilner jars. as you can see there is some semblance of colour co-ordination but how long it will stay like this is unsure.

Good morning all!
It is a truly glorious morning here, the sun is shining with all his might and has been all week. To that end i have been able to keep the back door open while i'm in the house but that does mean that there are lots of flying beasties coming for a visit. These are two species of butterfly i have very carefully caught and released back outside. A Lesser White Butterfly and a Peacock Butterfly. I could not help but feel how beautiful and diverse they both were. A sign of His creation, surely.
Hope it is lovely and summery with you.

I posted a huge Saturday Shopping list earlier this week to make up for the fact that i have missed the last two Saturdays so this Saturday in the spirit of not being to greedy, just a small list.
Firstly, c'mon how cute!
and also i want this pretty necklace, such a lovely colour.
