My second book back has taken a while to come together and I'm still not sure. I've stuck it together anyway and I love the new wire hanger I made (sorry, I've just realised you can't actually see it!! too dark now to take another pic!) I found a much heavier wire today which bends and twists so much easier than the first attempt.A button tree, what more could a gal want...

Check out Linda's Blog http://lindajos.blogspot.com/ for some wonderful Silver Bella inspiration.

In the absence of a cigar box I attached mine to the back of an old book and then had a good old rummage in my 'stuff' box, it's surprising what was in there, I really must visit a little more often!I love the winding, twisting and threading that this kind of project invloves

I tried out a couple of new techniques on an old fav of mine, canvases. This time I went for an inchie vintage Christmas look with some Cavallini paper and a bit of antique ink. These pictures are really fun to do and I think the finished result is rather fab.

Ok, so I mentioned in a previous post I went to an art supplies shop that I really had no business being in and this is why, ta da!!! the catalogue!! need I say more...My dear friend friend Muriel did pick up this little gem, a colour index by Jim Krause, a very useful little book which tells you what goes with what, a great place to start if you're unsure of or looking for a colour scheme

Linda, if I knew what I was doing you'd be the first to know!! at this stage it's a box filled with cotton reels and not a lot more! it was quite a challenge just getting it all in the photo! I can see my Dymo letter maker twitching in it's box at the mere thought of a bit of text but what exactly??
