And here they are, this is what was on last weeks table the strange brown shapes they turned into these little darlings....little papier mache brooches each has a little bit of text picked out to describe their character.. I will be putting them in my etsy or bigcartel shop ASAP..
If you look carefully you can read their 'names'.
These have been a joy to make and I will certainly be making some more in the future.. I just love the way their little characters developed as they where painted.
************This part of the blog doesn't start well but read on.... Norman and I went to visit his mother yesterday at the nursing home in Brightlingsea.. She has Alzheimer's. It was so upsetting she was in an awful pickle once again.. I could drone on about it but it isn't a pretty story for teatime on a Sunday..
So to cheer ourselves up after we sorted things out, and get the smell of the nursing home out of our nostrils, we took a long drive to Walton-on-the-Naze.. and walked along the beach, it was blowing a hooligan and the tide was coming in, wonderful, food for the sole.
On the way back we called in at Frinton.. A strange, bonkers (as my friend and Frinton'ite Alison Stockmarr calls it) seaside town..
In the window of the artisan bakers where these little gems... ALL MADE OUT OF BREAD... Would you believe..
I just love them and thought you would too...
I'll post my beach finds along with my charity shop gems in a day or so..
I'm off to watch Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC's production of Sherlock. It is wonderful.
