I found this tiny old suitcase on a market stall a while back and just had to have it. It was marked up at £3 but I haggled and got it for £2. It has sat on my shelf doing nothing until my mum sent me a little nativity set ……perfect!

Remember the alphabet blocks I got for 50p at the village carnival in the summer? Well I have finally used some of them.
I went through them and made up a few names and a 2012 which I then glued together. When they were dry I gave them three coats of paint to cover the other pictures that were on them and then went over them with a bit of sandpaper to shabby them up a bit.
I’m going to give them as silly presents on New Years Eve.
I have quite a few letters and numbers left over so I thought that if I see any more similar blocks at other carboots etc. I would buy them and see if I could do a bit of mix and match and make up a few more names, random words etc.
