Made these last week and my new finds in Norfolk

Made these two necklaces while i was down in Norfolk last week.
I just did a few hours a night beading while chilling out in the caravan and i love how they have turned out.
The daisy one will be a birthday present for one of my neices and the Egyptian looking one will be for my sister as i know she will just love it.

I bought this bust from a car boot sale in Scotland (i love car boot sales) for £1.00 and its ideal for showing off my jewellry.
Heres a close up. I must admit they are much more shiny in real life.

Anyway we took Harry for a little Holiday to Norfolk in the caravan last week and the weather was really kind to us and we all had a great time.

Harry went in the sea for the first time and i will put a video up of it when i figure out how to do it as it is really funny.

We always go to a few car boots while we are down there and these are some of my finds from this trip.

A gorgeous victorian photo album thats just itching to be altered for 50 pence. Heres a pic of it open and look how the pages are all aged and grungy.I love the Gothic arch shapes of the windows to.

A bag full of vintage glass beads for £3.00

6 cabinet cards for 50 pence.

A bag of semi precious stone pendants for £1.00

A silver plated double frame for 25 pence.

A pair of reproduction art nouveau frames for 50 pence.

I also got a huge bag of assorted seed beeds and findings for £2.00, a really unusual and weird doll for £3.00 and 5 paper back novels for £1.00.

So i am going to have fun now this winter when the gardening season is over and do some altered art projects.
