Pinned // July ’13

Thankfully, the end of the month has fallen on the two days that I have at home between holidays. So today, I bring you July’s Pinned board.

July1. A clever way to transform an old (large) tyre into a pond. A couple of smaller ones together could be rather sweet.
2. Gingerbread and Dinosaurs. This just wouldn’t have been as cool if they were a standard flat cut-out!
3. I think this is a rather lovely way to show your affection for your dog. You could get the print of almost any animal.
4. Take you’re duck into the shower, and let him play your favourite tunes! Such a cool idea!
5. Really cool Table Illusion by John Brauer.
6. This is a brilliant re-design of an ice cube tray. I’d love one!
7. I heard about this ‘Fill-Me-In Party Poster’ recently but didn’t know what it was. Now, I want one to just doodle on myself!
8. What a wonderful sign at the Grand Canyon!
9. I’ve always tried to keep my peel in one piece, but this is so cute, I might have to do it next time.

Having not been making much recently, I decided to do something crafty. After having a dig around I remembered I had this cute little pulpboard gecko/lizard. This little guy was brought at a local craft fair where The Decopatch Place had a stall. Continue reading

Picture Palette // 06

This Picture Palette was supposed to be posted last night, but I was occupied with other things and didn’t get a change to create the palette and sit down to write and publish it. So, a day late, here is Picture Palette number 6! Continue reading

Red Kites

The other day a local farmer was out in one of his fields near my house, taking down the grass and making hay bails. The field is hard to see from my back garden, but the benefit of my room is that there is a single-storey extension below it, which means I can climb out of the window and sit/stand on the roof.

The farmer taking down the grass brought six red kites. Six. You’re lucky if you see two together in the same airspace – but to see six together is rare!

As red kites don’t hunt, but only eat what is already dead, these six were obviously hoping to find some mice amongst the cuttings.

These are the pictures that I managed to get of these gorgeous birds soaring over the field, and even over-head!
