I bet you'll never guess what I used to make this necklace ... a deodorant bottle. Yup, I did! I've been trying and trying to expand my etsy shop by adding a fun and colourful jewellery line, but I've not come up with the perfect idea yet. Mosty, the problem has been about materials and how to get the colours I want but can't seem to achieve with regular paints. But then, one morning as I stood in the bathroom, brushing my teeth, there was that bright green coloured deo, standing right in front my eyes and the idea just snapped: what if I could make something recycled? So I did. Don't know if it'll ever make it into the shop but I'm having fun for now at least ;) Only down side is that I have no empty bottles at home - right now I've got my eye on a gorgeous pink washing up bottle that I'm almost half way through ...
Just something I found at the supermarket and I found the idea of a potatoe bikini somewhat amusing:
Bella fell asleep sitting up (down?):
A pillow's a pillow:
Tea with a neighbour; dates and figs gave it a slight oriental touch:
Cat that came to visit at my stall at today's art fair in Rojales - she found the bread in the picknick basket and helped herself to two slices, but leaving the crust.

And some simple, colourful earrings I made specially for the fair; displayed on some pretty tin boxes, to add even more colour:
