Tins Tins Tins

I have over the past year, inadvertently started a collection of tines,  It's not that I go out and intentionally buy them,  OK, well maybe one or two.  But we get biscuits and chocolates given to us as gifts in lovely collectible tins.  Here are just a few.... 

Thanks for calling by, have a great weekend,  Jayne xx

What a beautiful day....

Spring has arrived this week with trumpets blaring the Daffodils have finally shown their colours and to celebrate I set up the table and chairs in the front garden.  Our cottage is on a popular route for walkers and over the years we have made many friends who walk their dogs past our home.  One particular friend recently had heart surgery and struggles to do the full circuit so we have the table and chairs set up in the front garden to enable him to stop and have a rest on his trip.

Material World.........

I don't know about you, but I just love collecting materials.  I can't resist the bargain of a remnant and whether I can use it or not I just have to purchase oddments of material.  Here is a selection of my red and beige collection.  I have now gone into the dangerous area of vintage materials.

New Visitors

We are very fortunate as living next to a forest we get a lot of visiting birds call by some for the season some stay only a few days to re-fuel on their long trip south.  This year however, we have just had some long tailed tits move into a large conifer just yards from the house.  And to think. we were intending cutting this tree down last autumn because of its size.  Here's hoping our visitors produce a brood as large as the mum below.
