Tales from the Weekend….

Lots to post today, first of all hi to everyone attending the Journal Juice workshop at the Stamp Attic on Saturday.. so well behaved… well apart from Shirley that is lol
and thanks to Gayle for the lovely Pumpkin and Walnut cake!
While at the Stamp attic I managed to nip out at lunchtime along with Sue Roddis and do a bit of bargain hunting, I found the china doll in a second hand shop and after dismantling her we found she had glass eyes… perfect!
Sue also found a shop selling the clay pipes for £1 each so I went straight down there and got myself some!

Oh and found these Dr Who toys half price, not sure how they will be used yet but had to snap them up :)
Sue recently Blogged this post where she had found some giant beetle kids toys costing just a pound each and kindly got me some…. they wind up and walk also!!

I used one in my Congo specimen jar.

Bye for now!


  1. oooo I love those cyber men, the most scary of Dr Who's enemies. Looks like a fun class.

  2. It was a fun day Andy......I can't believe that doll had glass eyes that came out......porcelain dolls (at a decent price) are hard enough to find but with glass eyes....well!!
    LOve what you did with the beetle:)

  4. Sounds like a great class :) having been on classes there myself I know what bargains can be found tehe
