SEEKING COLOUR – COLLECTING STAMPS

SEEKING COLOUR - COLLECTING STAMPS

A little wander through St Leonards after a workout last week, led me past one of my favourite places, the The Stamp And Coin Shop in St Leonards-On-Sea, an unsung hero of a place, I think I may have mentioned it before, small and dark with bars at the windows, next door to a questionable free house. But […]


MANY MAYS AGO

MANY MAYS AGO

 Happy Friday! Digging around at home, trying to keep only the essentials in the rooms we are using, (the essentials being about twenty boxes full of craft materials piled high up the walls and a boot fairs worth of junk strewn about the place ready for a weekend of selling). Well, anyway, I found my […]

WINTER PINK

Hello you, the wanderer returns, in between crazy busy days and nights we have been staying with family out of town, so when I have been able to pop home an explosion of pink and glitter has happened. My spell of not being able to create has been broken and I have been getting back to […]
