Hand Made Nation Movie

Hand Made Nation Movie

abruzzo dogs and flowers

Rex and Shelia (the post lady called the 2 abandoned puppies Billy and Shelia)outside the house.

No idea what variety this rose is but its still blooming against the side of an old ruin near us.It's wonderful to think when things were so bad years ago that someone planted a rose which did not produce food but looked beautiful!

The plaster behind the flower is lovely!It's an old earth chalk mix I think.

My etsy shop


I've been updating my etsy shop with some new necklaces I've been making in between restringing yards and yards of beads this week for my customers.I love etsy and I've bought some lovely things from the shops there.Including some hand-made silver clasps that i used with the very old trade beads I've restrung recently.

Yesterday I went to a new carboot and got lots of upcycling goodies so I'm going to be making more things this week.I bought a very wonky suede belt that looks as if it will make several bracelets and necklaces!
