Sneak peak & a question!

Wanted to share a sneak peak with you! It's my 1st attempt at gungepaper roses! I don't have a sizzix or cutting machine but made a template by hand & worked from that. Ooooh, my fingers are soooo inky today! hehe.

sneak peak!

I'm still on daily hospital visiting duties & can't see things changing much over the next few weeks. Not much sign of Christmas around here at the mo & no time for crafting or blogging or visiting my fabby Bubblie friends or blog hopping :-( but you are all in my thoughts. I'm dashing off to the hospital now but wanted to show you my roses! I've got my new challenge ready for Something Completely Different tomorrow so that's why I'm here.

Look what I picked up in town this morning from a charity shop for £2! I loves 'em. :-D

I've placed a little ink pad next to them so you can see how big they are...I don't know anything about them, where they were made or anything. Would be lovely if you could tell me something about them. Awe, they've put a smile on my face. I'm having problems with my dad's bank & finding him somewhere to live besides. I've been given a lot of wrong info & spent over an hour making phone calls. :-( why can't some people do their job properly...ooh, I'm turning into a moaner on my blog!!

(a close up! you can see they are glazed. Do you think I should name them! They need a wash me thinks! I think I've got a bargin tho. Not sure what DH will say...well, I do actually....not more junk!) Just wondering do you think I should paint the wooden case?

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Hopefully, I can upload my tags over the weekend. Hope everyone's preparations for Christmas are going well. Gez.xx

  7. OMGOODNESS Gez...those roses are fantastically realistic!!! Well done you...you should be dead chuffed with those!

    I recognise those owls I think. There was a pottery near here that used to make owls similar, if not the same. to those. Wouldn't it be lovely if they were Cornish owls????
