I just had to take a photo of this really happy pie, and yes I did still eat it and yes it was very yummy :D

Clock part – Winston

I came across this piece (A framed and signed cartoon image of Winston Churchill made for upcycled clock/ watch parts) while looking through box of frames in a charity shop in Fareham. It was only a £1 so I had to have it :)

I have tried to do a bit of research but had no luck but I just decided to have another look and found this:575_153

“G Burgess: a cartoon picture of Winston Churchill formed from watch parts, signed, London, framed and glazed, 15 by 9cm.”. £50 – £80

This one is a better ‘posher’ one than mine but it’s also a LOT smaller. Was just very interesting to actually find another one similar, although the trail of knowledge has now gone cold again. If anyone has any knowledge please do share :)

Glad to be waiting for the bus


I try to cycle to St. John when I can and the weather permits and this is one of those occasions I wimped out and got the bus! and when you see a view like this, you know you’ve made the right decision :)

Truth is stranger than fiction

The last thing you expect to see in the front garden of a house in Gosport while cycling home is a mock-up electric chair!! I cycled past it a couple times on my way to and from places but eventually had to stop and take a picture, its just sooo weird!! Also have 2 houses next to each other board up like that just makes it even weirder. And unless their planning on selling the house to some crazy goth people I wouldn’t have thought it would help sell the place leaving it out the front for so long!

Definitely glad a stopped and took a photo, otherwise I would have thought I was going mad when explaining it to people :D

Brought treasures


These bits and pieces I picked up in the charity shops while on a cycling trip out to Lee-On-The-Solent, Gosport.

Crazy cat jug and ceramic shell were just over a £1 each, cups were 50p each and table cloth was under £1.DSCF8599

All of these bits and pieces I picked up at the St. Marys Fratton May Fayre, nearly all of it from charity stalls. I also brought myself a cactus and a strawberry plant :)

I’m starting to create quite a set of tapestry/embroidered/ stitched pictures – that will be a blog post for another day :)

Mandala fun

I saw a lovely colourful mandala and thought I could try and make a mandala using coloured pages of magazines etc.

Then I thought rather than cut out loads of bits then decided the colour combinations don’t work I thought I could try out some combinations on Paint. But man it’s addictive!

Found treasures

These are all lovely pieces of pottery and ceramics I have found in the garden :) I have them all on one of the garden fence panel struts. I have seen a lot of pretty mosaic pieces of Pinterest ( and would love to have a go at one of these one day.
