Really enjoying making charms at the mo, and have finally finished some for a swap on a wonderful group INCREDIBLY RT, hosted by the talented Julie H.
No pic of those here cause some things need to be a surprise, but will share some for stamp camp in June. A long weekend with some great gals just creating, laughing,sharing.
It cant come soon enough.
What I enjoy the most is making one off charms and with those Ive turned into this brooch.
Wearable art is just so much FUN.

A trip to Wales

Now this leg of our journey was one I was longing for.My sister-in law and her hubby live near Manchester in Blackrod, so it was a few weeks staying with them.How lovely it is up there.The shopkeepers all so friendly and like a chat.Wonderful people.

This top pic is the church next door to Karan and Jeff.

Church bells on Sunday make for a superb alarm clock, and of course tell you you have 15 minutes to get to Sunday service.

Did you know a bread roll is a BARM.

I hand fed a wild RED squirrel.Just the daintiest little creature you ever did see.These are endangered as the grey squirrel are taking over, so sad.
Now these next two pics are of Lake Windermere, Beatrix Potter Country.Such a delightful day out on the lake, and a ride on a steam train.

Beautiful countryside and ever so green.

Another day saw us drive 5 hours to get up into Wales.Now there is some clean air. Fill your lungs.What amazing country-side.Our destination was Mt Snowdon, and a steam train up the mount.Now we only got just over half way, but the view was AMAZING

I couldn't get enough of the wonderful stone buildings and this little lane way was just begging to be explored.
Such a wonderful place that I really enjoyed.I look forward to a return visit there, and next time I,m walking down that mountain.
What a beautiful place.
