WOYWW 51

Are you all excited for next weeks reveal. Yes it's another WOYWW with the lovely Julia. I know I can't wait to see what you have all been creating but on to to days little peek!


As you can see not much going on! this is because of the little boy in the top left (grandson James) we haven't seen him for about a month and he has changed so much in that time. Now 18 months old he is so funny and learning about boundaries in Grandmas house ;0) He's a very quick learner lol. Onto the desk! can you see the lush new ribbon that has arrived from America. (the postage was almost as exp, as the ribbon!) I won't be doing that often but  did have to have some and I am so glad I did it's very yummy!


Thought I would give you a little peek in to another draw, this is my brad draw! and this is only the top layer!

 A little close up for you I have moved a few so you can see a wee bit more, and yet there is more underneath this! so you can see I have  few brads/gems lol now a few of you last week spotted that I was working on altering a tin.


And this is it! although I later remembered to stick the other 's' on for Bits N Bobs lol, this wasn't the easiest thing to alter having round edges etc. It was going to be a little sewing box, but after all the bit n bobs I have I thought it would get more use 


Here is the inside, which has since been filled with my new jewellery bits well I had to put them some where didn't I?  I also thought I would enter this into a challenge. Alter It Monthly (AIM) which is to use metal in some way. I have already entered once with an altered bottle cap. 

It's gone much cooler here today very cloudy and I have to get out and about with the little man before it rains. I will do my best to get round to you all later when he is having a nap (please let him have a nap!) Love to you all as always Dawn xx

I can't believe all your brads and bling. You have a ton of embellishments to play with, that's for sure.

I swear, I thought that was your child. I nearly fell over when I read "grandchild." Naw!

That tin looks very labor intensive. I love the way you decorated it, though. And that lace along the sides is the perfect addition.

BTW, that candle on your table is awesome. I bet you stamped it, too!

Hi Dawn, GS is so cute ;) Love the brad drawer. That's the problem with getting stuff from America, I think the cost of their worldwide postage went up in recent months.

Thanks for the sneaky peek! Love what you've done to the tin, and your brad drawer is a real treasure trove! Your GS is de-lish, I'm sure you'll have a lovely time with him.

Foil Play said...

Your brad draw is fantastic - thanks for the visual rummage, Dawn :-) I love brads too, although I rarely manage to actually part with them and actually put them onto projects!

Love your tin, and your GS is gorgeous - enjoy your time with him!

Julia Dunnit said...

The first thing I noticed was thatyou drink from a cup and saucer. How frightfully civilised! And then I looked at your grandson - what a cutie. And then a green mist covered my eyes and I couldn't look at all your lovely gems n things. No fair. Love the bits and bobs tin - so glad you found another 's' - would be awful if someone thought you were keeping Bob in the tin. Or Bob's bit. Grim!

Cheryl said...
