At the beach.

Hello girls

Aren't we having a lovely week, with the sun shining every day and the birds singing their little hearts out it feels like high summer instead of early spring.

On sunday we went off to the beach to look for a  a piece of driftwood to put the  "fish knife" hooks on we found at the vintage fair,

in amongst all the rocks and shells we found just the right piece and back home out come the tool bag and in no time at all the "fish knives" were screwed in place.

Now where to put it? I had a spare wall in the bedroom so up it went,  I made a heart to hang on it and gathered some bottles and bags, shells and a seal and after a bit of faffing about I was happy.

I might get the kids to put "messages" in the bottles,

"sail away"

We picked up some shells on the way back and I think the seals were waiting for the ice cream van to call or were they just looking at the "kiss" in the sky"!!

That's a very pretty find and you have personalised it and made it fun! I have never been close to a seal, they look so cute but no doubt have sharp teeth?
