Time flies...................................

when you're having fun.......

that is when you stick me in a room alone with a box,some papers and some wallpaper paste


made in the same way as the bird box ( see sidebar ) except no little birdy hole this time..... then as soon as you have finished..you then have to force everyone in the car...drive to a big park....and bribe everyone with the prize of an ice cream to find the most perfect pine cones....(make sure there are pine trees where you go or this can get VERY frustrating :)


...another 'Dolly Trolley' found it's way home with me the other day,  Dolly #1 has been so useful and was a joy to transform that I couldn't resist, the latest one is just as brown and brassy ....but not for long :)

  4. This is weird.........for years and years I have had in my head, the urge to make a papier mache full height grandfather clock. Thought about it, then kids came along and it got put on hold. Recently though, the idea had resurfaced, but more thinking, plywood and vintage fabrics or papers.

    I just LOVE LOVE LOVE it Jane! Maybe seeing your clock in all its gorgeousness might spur me on to get my one done. Can't imagine it would look anything near as gorgeous, all wonky and weird more like, but might be a bit of fun!

    Right off to catch up now with all your latest posts that I have missed!

    Love Vanessa xxxxxx

  15. Utterly gorgeous, clearly time spent alone with few boxes, can be quite fruitful. You are so clever, and inspire me so much x Jo

  20. lovely Trolley Dolly Jane! - had to laugh at the 'personal space' comment, have a similar issue in this house - ahhh, school holidays, so bitter sweet when you actually work in a school - just over a week left for us - keep the alcohol flowing.........
