What's on my workdesk today .......

 Just time to tell you before I make my way to my desk 
that we found these great rusty pieces for the garden
while we were playing out at Vintage Village Stockport 
and The Vintage Emporium at Pear Mill

Now I can't stay long as I need to prepare for 
the last of the Safety Pin Bracelet Workshops.
I will show you the pics next week.

There's cakes to bake and desks to look round
 so hope you all have a good week. See you then.


  1. hope you have a great time, the cakes look great and so does your garden. Helen 5

  2. Ooh, I love rust!!
    I have a safety pin bracelet I once made, but not a clue where at the moment, maybe I should look for it now you have reminded me about them.
    Love the cake photos, are those real flowers or did you make them - with icing?

  3. Ha! I love your new gardening finds..aren't they fab? There's nothing like a bit of rusty metal to look good, trust me, I have some too including a scrap metal hare that is my pride and joy :-). That vintage place sounds fab, I don't know your neck of the woods at all, shall have to rectify that one day!

  4. Love vintage and oooooh more food. I have never seen a safety pin bracelet - I have a whole box of small gold ones. Can this be something I can do with the folk at the Hospice - is it easy? Jackie 21 x

    1. Have a look at this Jackie, it was my last workshop making the bracelets

  5. WOW Lynn I just love your rusty pieces - I'm going to include pieces in our garden - we went off to the dump shop on Tues only to find it closed...I am after something to make into a bird bath also a feeder...I'll be looking more closely now. Have fun with the safety pins....looking forward to seeing them finished Happy WOYWW enjoy your week RobynO#25

  6. What fab finds much character. My garden is full of building rubble, scaffolding and tools at the mo so certainly not looking at it's best lol.
    Have a great week.
