the bad weather continues

Hi All

the bad weather continues, we have had warnings all over the UK, we have come to a stand still!!
 I can remember as  a child, really bad winters, we did not have central heating, just the coal fire down stairs, our schools did not shut, people still went to work, and life carried on, it makes me laugh, when we have a bit of snow, schools shut, airports cancel flights, driving becomes in places impossible. I admit it is difficult for me to get out when it snows, the beast ( my mobility scooter) is not suitable for snow and has my mobility is poor I cannot walk in it in case I fall, so i have to depend on others to help me.

We should take note of other countries who have snow every year, their planes still fly, schools stay open and roads are clear, so why when we have snow, we come to a halt, and all the news is about the snow, my mind boggles, sorry just had to get that off my chest.

I am still unable to go into my work room, to cold, I'm  thinking this year I may have  radiator fitted, so it will be warm enough to work in, or buy myself a better heater.
So I am continuing with my crafts, yesterday I made a little store card holder that you can attach to your key ring or handbag, this way you will always have your store cards to hand, or it could be used for shop coupons, have got a picture for you to see.

I have also included some photos of the snow in my part of the world.

Waiting for the snow

Hi All,
Yes I am waiting for the snow, yesterday the news was full of how bad it was going to be, warnings all over the place, I woke up this morning expecting to be covered with snow and horrific winds, we have been very lucky, we are not nearly as bad as some places around UK, maybe we will get it later?

took some photos for you so you can see what is like here.

Worked on my crafts yesterday, it is to cold to go into my work room, I have a little heater but it does not get it warm enough, it is made of single brick so gets very cold in there.

anyway have a look at my weather report

Its so cold

Hi All
hello and welcome to my new followers, I hope you enjoy my blog, feel free to leave any comments, I love comments.

Sorry I could not find any give a ways for you on Monday, will look again next week.

Well its so cold here, yes winter as arrived, we have had snow and there is more to follow, I feel so lucky that I do not have to go out.

I have been working on Victorian accessories, a bit different from my usual shabby chic look, my friend Jan who very kindly displays my minis in her shop, asked for me to make these, I made another writing slope, a ladies chatelaine, letter rack and a Victorian mourning necklace, earrings in a box, although these are small minis they take a lot of time to make.

I am not able to get on with my caravan, it needs a lot of sanding down and I need to have the window and door open so that the area is well ventilated, if not it will cause me breathing problems, I may have to put it away for a while and wait for warmer weather.

have a look at what I made

Morning All
We have snow, yes snow, for once the forecaster's have got it right, so that means staying in today.
I am back to doing minis for a couple of days now, it seems to be working, splitting my week in half, so that I can do my other crafts as well.

I hope today to get a bit more done on the gypsy caravan, there is so much preparation to do before I can even think of putting it back together, but being a perfectionist its got to be done right. I am excited about decorating it.

I also need to make another Victorian writing slope, one of the girls from Face book saw it and has asked for one.

anyway its Monday, and you know what that means , I am going to fly around the Internet and fins you Give a ways to enter, hope you do enter and let me know if you win,
so off I go
