Here are a few shots of our lovely tomato harvests…we are getting about 5-10 every couple of days. Although entirely home grown organically, I am rather disappointed in the lack luster taste, they are OK but not great.
My Craft. We had this old window which used to be a mirror in our house at The Upper Beach until it came to its untimely demise on the living room floor. I kept it knowing that one day I would like to use it in our garden (our decor now is not so much cottage as it was in the Upper Beach days).
The new deck needed a décor element to take your eye away from our neighbour’s ladder hanging on the side of his house, so I thought, what better way to use our ancient window?
I say “my craft” with some humor since I actually did very little of it. JT kindly prepped and painted this lovely ancient window frame, cut out the plywood board inserts and painted them too. All I did was the fun part: cut out and apply the tin, and then create a hanging mechanism for the tea light holders.
The distressed tin background is meant to reflect the candle light.I used little silver thumb tacks to ‘rivet’ the tin onto the plywood background. I am really pleased with the results. So that is “my craft”
