My mum gave me a selection of beads a few weeks back to turn into earrings for her, and I finally got around to it yesterday!
It had been abut ten years since I last did the touristy thing in Bath, so visited the Roman Baths, Museum of Fashion and the Victoria Gallery on a special ticket thingy.
I was lucky enough to visit an exhibition by the Bath Textile Artists whilst visiting Corsham back in March called “From Here To There”. I found it very inspirational and took a few photos for my own records.
Mum and I visited the historic market town of Corsham back in March. It was a lovely day so we took a few photos of St Bartholomew’s church with its graveyard full of primroses (and a very friendly cat).
Sometimes I feel inspired to make my own arty Christmas cards, and last year I created these potato print birdies with real feather tails. They came out slightly more sinister than I meant them to be!
I picked up sixty 78rpm 10″ records on my way home from work a few weeks back. An absolute bargain! They are all singles, and in OK condition with very few either jumpy or broken. Most are from 1950’s, a few from the 30’s/40’s and one is from 1912 or there abouts.
From 2009 to 2014 I photographed St Barnabas Church from my bedroom window. It became a bit of a project during the latter half of 2010, when I realised I had been photographing the church almost every week as the weather changed and I continued this through all of 2012. I must have had enough by 2013 as there aren’t many, and I took my last and only photos from 2014 in July, a few weeks before moving house. There was an absolutely fantastic sunset, and a prefect way to finish the project.
A visit to the charity shops in Oldfield Park, Bath was as fruitful as usual. Finds include Star Wars, Barron Knight, Henry’s Cat, Sonic The Hedgehog, Playhour Annual 1977, and pop up Shakin’ Stevens!
I found this fantastic picture disc and Muppet Show annual at a records and book fair in town on Saturday for 50p and £1.00.
I found these three lovelies at the weekend in a charity shop and were too colourful to miss!
There was a lovely low sun when I visited the American Museum on Sunday, so as well as some inside, I took a few photos of the view from Claverton Manor before leaving.
A few photos of Bishop’s Palace and Wells Cathedral.
A good haul from Bath and Wells charity shops this weekend whilst visiting the folks!
When we pulled the carpet up in the back room a couple of years ago, rather than underlay we discovered sheets of newspaper dating from Nov/Dec 1959 – the date my partner’s parents moved into the house. I whipped a small selection away before the builders arrived and stashed them in a cupboard until last week when I finally went through them.
I finally got around to taking some photos of a few of the plants in my new garden. The passion flower has gone bananas since it was taken out its pot and planted in the earth. I even found a fruit!
My first attempt at making coasters from my ever growing pile of tile samples!
I bought this book a few weeks back from a charity shop. One look at the cover and I knew it had to be mine! It’s surprisingly informative even if the designs are now dated. Plus, I own a knitting machine so it may even come in useful if ever I decide to knit myself a batwing jumper…
Here’s a few photos of Bradford On Avon, Wiltshire I took whilst visiting in March. There is a lovely little Saxon church (St Laurence’s) just before the town centre and a interesting town bridge with a small domed building on it which was the overnight lockup for naughty people.
Here’s a few photos I took whilst visiting Dorchester last month, which was a wonderful sunny day.
Four months back I had the pleasure of designing the wedding invites for my boyfriend’s nephew and his betrothed. Georgia set the brief of a blue passport, boarding pass and luggage label as the template, I designed it and my boyfriend printed it. They came out really well and I can’t wait the the reception next month!
