These are my new garden mushrooms I made using the stumps of some trees we had to remove. The caps are made using an old anodised aluminium lamp shade and the other is a sheet of printed tin I had lying around. I shaped the tin over and old glass terrarium bottle. The tin wasn't as pliable as I wished but I am pleased with the final shape.
I cut the top off an old dolls head and filled it with compost and seeded it. Voila a few days later she has a new crop of green curls :) I also sprayed her a nice garden green colour. I believe she will look better as she ages.
The back fence is being decorated with ''faces'' made from old containers, Just cut the top off an old 5 gallon/liter container and add eyes for ''expression"".

Armed with only a measurment for the length of his back and the circumference of his chest I made this colourfully jazzy cotton lined fleece jacket.
The owner is happy with the outcome as am I. This is by no means a perfect jacket but hey it fits and he's warm so good result for 2 1/2 hours work :)

These two journal covers are hand made by me. Both use both new and recycled elements both in terms of fabrics and embellishments
These will shortly be for sale in my Etsy shop.
This is a work in progress. Its a small soft patchwork box all handmade by myself. Each panel is made seperately and then the box is assembled.
