Sunny Days


You'll have to indulge me (from time to time) with some pics of out little lizard Spike.

This is Spike in July.

He likes to be up really high,
and as you can see this summer
he found the perfect spot...

Spikey leading the way in the garden


Mmmm nice and high.....

... now if i could just get up that tree !

Lapping up the sun

just Chillin.

He's such a cutie pie.

He had a lovely time this summer,
and is looking forward to the next.

See ya

Hello Peoples

I won't make you guess what it is. 

This is a pulling handle.
i made for our Loo !

Cool innit !

It worked soooo well that
i was even going to put
beads on it, although i'm not
quite sure how hygienic
that would have been.

The orginal button mechanism
kept on breaking, so i made
this handle.

We had it for more than a year
till my husband decided to
change the whole thing.

But the new one even broke !
I think we should have kept myn, i know it didn't look much, but it worked a treat.

Hi Peoples !

How you all doin?  Good I hope.  Here's a 'cuddly' card with some cute pets on from one of the new Kars/Ollyfant stamp sets.  We could all do with some cuddles, don't you think?

The woolly flowers i've had for yonks.  I bought a book on how to make knitted flowers but Mum hasn't finished kniting my 6th cardigan yet! So ill have to wait till i can talk her into some more cheep labour!!!

Well, it's a shame to waste all that raw talent she has.

Thanks for your visit. See you all soon.

Better Late than Never !


This was an extra big card for an anniversary card.  The couple went on a cruise and i was too late to do them a card before they went.  So I did an extra special one to welcome them back home again !  Just as well they were gone a few weeks, so i could finish it!

It was quite grand!  the lovely baking paper is Magnolia and the nic-nacs are Sizzix sizzlets.  And i've used a Martha Stewart punch. But, the ship is my very own creation !

Hope you like.
