Mr Muscleman’s 2019 cold-frame re-build project is done!

Re-used wood, serendipitously acquired aluminium frames and some fresh plexiglass make us all set for growing winter greens.

The other rabarbie brought me a fresh supply of empty glass jars (perfect for applebutter!). I’m down one, because I saw an opportunity to stock up on some fennel seeds. I’m sure she doesn’t mind.

First proper decoupage jewlery box made. Pretty happy and all for £3, Everything else was stuff I already had leftover in house. Now I know what I am doing, time to make my mum one!

It was another rainy cold day today so time for another inside project, a decoupage jewellery box from scraps left over at home..satisfying

Quite happy with my first go at a decoupage jewelry box. I made the inside too. Very cheap way to upcycle. The box was £1. The pictures where from old magazines, the black edges are felt tip and the inside was made from scraps of foam and lining material from my mum’s trusty sewing box. Next stop the larger hexagonal one. I want to get the next one looking more professional as I am doing it as a trial run for a present I want to make. Love crafting!

Something else we are crafting. Good to have something to do in the evenings or when the weather is too bad to get out in the garden. Relaxing..

Time to recycle the coffee table for a second time. Last time chalk paint and corks, this time satin furniture paint and photo decoupage. Weren’t sure if the photos were going to work but they did! Used colour pop app to turn photos black and white and pick out colours. Photos don’t do it justice as the light is reflecting on top but super clear defined photos. Less than £20 to refurb inc paint, glue, acrylic top coat, photos and brushes! ( really recommend sponge brushes for this type of project. All the photos are ones we’ve taken around England so memories too!

Too cold to garden so time for some inside refurbishing.

It’s snowy and frosty today. Hoping a little leafy-insulation will keep the artichokes warm.
