About Me

Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Vintage for Allsorts

Good Morning All

It was wonderful seeing my friend from UK, it is like we have never been apart.
My John and her hubby got on really well too, they had only  met very briefly at Lucas' funeral so that was more than  5 years ago.
Allsorts Challenge this week is hosted by Mervi and the theme is Vintage.

I made a wall plaque for this one.

Once again I resort to these lovely vintage  pics, not many left now though.

Lots of lace and pearls.

I made the dangler decoration with orange beads to match the peachy lace.

I made the embellishment in the corner with some odd glass beads, tulle, feather and a  flower.

The bronze heart is from local China store and I added a satin tassle which I thought suited the                                                                                       theme too.

I enjoyed making this and I love how it turned out.
It is now hanging on the wall in my craft room.

Sponsor this week is Marianne
