Number 11 was obvious. I didn’t notice the ‘Merry Christmas’ when I tipped the pieces out as it came out upside down. It must have been meant to be so I didn’t put it back.
Not everyone celebrates the same way so I use it as ‘Happy Holidays’. I made the ‘sun’ out of two pieces representing sections of beliefs and cultures. I feel that ultimately, it doesn’t matter who or what we are or what we believe in we add up to a whole – humanity. As I was doing it I was wishing for peace and happiness throughout the world.
Poor little angel in the window has a halo but it kept getting squashed, I am sure she won’t mind though, it is squashed…not slipped.
1 x straw piece (I think it is for hat banding?)
1x green heavily painted handmade pulp paper
1 x photograph piece with a bird on it.
1 x piece of fly wire screen
1 x light green waffle paper
1 x light green handmade paper with gold design
1 x paste paper greens and browns
A lot of greens and browns in this one. I do have scrap bags almost colour co-ordinated so when the come out they go together…almost.
Of course whilst I am using some of every piece I cannot use the whole of the pieces as some of them are just too big for the surface I am working on but I have been quite good in throwing the scraps of scraps out…sort of good anyways.
I love this shop at my shopping centre. Not only is the girl a lovely friendly and very helpful person but her shop is a delight. She has food from all around the world, beautiful spices and oils. This is a picture of the ‘oil wall’ . The photograph doesn’t really do it justice (I took it with my phone). The whole wall is backlit which illuminates the oils in their vessels, it looks so inviting. The shop is called ‘provincial gourmet’
I bought some spices for gift and they are from a company calling themselves ‘Screaming Seeds Spice Co.’ freshly roasted spice blends – flavours of Australia. What I like about them are their names.
- Rainforest Season: which is coriander, garlic, peppercorn lemon myrtle and lemon peel, sea salt, onion, celery seed, thyme, corrigo pepper.
- Moonlight Dreaming: Coriander, garlic, fenugreek, Murray River salt, onion, lemon tea tree, ajowan, fennel, mountain pepper, peppermint gum, black peppercorns.
The names sound so inviting.
Goodnight to you all, thanks for coming over to my place…Happiness is…creating.
