Compendium of Curiosities #30


The weather was wonderful this morning. Blue skies and sun shining, but it didn't last long the wind has picked up and we're looking at lots of rain over the week end. So my shopping is done and I am going to craft so ner ner to you rain ha ha. I am Joining in with Linda and lots of others playing with Tim's book, this is from page 48 so if you would like to play along pop over to Linda's and join in the fun! And as Simon says S&S theme is of Love I thought I would use it for that challenge too.


Here is the close up, I had fun playing with paint & papers and I hope you like it too. This is a late posting today for me but I have been out and couldn't get to the computer this morning. I have been looking through some charity shops and got a great 'Jam pot' this is obviously donkey's years old but they are the best I think ;0) and also some bit's of leather some odd buttons (crafting is always on my mind) and the most stunning hammered pewter spoon. What have you found of late? Love Dawn xx

Hello, sweet and brilliant Dawn! What a gorgeous tag you've created here. The altered metal is just perfect, and the design couldn't be prettier. I love all the sweet little elements you used for this-- the hearts, the pen nib, the button-- they all work together so well, and complement the elegant lady wonderfully!

I hope your rainy weather clears up soon!
