My daughter and her family (Miss E, Master R, Little Miss M and Mr.M) went on holiday last week. To welcome them home I made this little cameo, which is photographed in my hall before I took it to their house.
Joining Cathy for her worldwide garden party held every Monday over at Rambling in the Garden.
I used hebe, hazel, primrose, succulents and this flower spike from a laurel
A few empty snail shells were put in the corner as Little Miss M loves snails – when she was 2 she collected them and made houses for them.
In the early 1990s I worked at Dansel , a bespoke woodworking Gallery. If you are ever in Dorset it is well worth a visit. It was a wonderful place to work and very tempting. I am lucky enough to have a few pieces from those days. Each piece was signed by the maker. The mirror frame was made by Simon Teed.
The sycamore bowl was made by Peter Dalby in 1992. It holds Angel Cards, which were created as part of the Transformation Game at the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland.
If you would like me to pick a card for you, let me know in the comments.
The picture you can see in the mirror is a piece of felt I made at a workshop run by Di Pattinson a few years ago.
I can highly recommend her workshops.
The piece was immediately pinned to a canvas painted with acrylic paint mixed with sand and there it sits – I always intended to do more to it but now I think I like it as it is. I could fix the pins at the back with Sugru.The diamond weaving hanging below it was made for me by Miss E for my birthday. She knows my favourite colours! Orange and pink together always a winner!
Maybe, I could fix it on to the painting ……. hmmmm ….. ….
I’ll leave for a while….. I think I like it ….. what do you think?
