Inspiration……In Accessorize

I saw this huge mirror in the Exeter branch of Accessorize and just had to ask if I could take a couple of pictures of it ……….. it was so beautiful it almost took my breath away!

The girl said it was made up of unsold/broken pieces of Accessorizes jewellery

However, I studied it for ages and noticed that it wasn’t as random as it first appeared, the colours were very carefully matched and a great many of the same pieces were used over and over again, like the pearl bows, the blue floral hearts and gold butterflies etc. but it was still very clever. I am now on the lookout for a wide framed mirror …. because I want to have a go at making something similar for myself ……

A Weekend Away ….. Recharging The batteries

I’ve just got back from a weekend in Dawlish Warren, a chance to recharge my very depleted batteries, eat and drink all the wrong things and embrace the sound and smell of the sea ….. I took a few pictures trying to be all arty-farty ….. but I’m a bit disappointed by the results …. but I thought I would share them with you anyway …..

As I took this picture of some pebbles on the beach  I noticed a “heart shaped” one in the bottom right of the shot ….
Hmmmm thought I …..
…… and tried a couple of things with it.

And this sign just made me laugh …..
