Beautiful beautiful Wales

Have had the pleasure to potter around the Brecon Beacons today, WOW, sometimes I do forget just how beautiful my home country is! We stumbled across a fantastic Garwnant woodland walks today, where they are currently building a new visitor centre.
....... but the walks are open and well marked, and the scenery is stunning. We will definately be adding this to one of our favorite places to visit.
A short drive north brought us to Brecon Town, a quaint little town with some quirky shops. After thoroughly boring my dear OH buy looking in each and every one of these shops, we drove homeward, passing through Bwulch, and Crickhowell, and many other very pretty places.
Home now, cooking bolognese ready for dinner after tomorrows outing........just need to decide where in Wakes we will visit tomorrow!!!...xc

Challege Makes.

On a forum at we have started to challenge each other. The first challenge was to be inspired by a photo I had taken at our local Wetlands, the second was to make a wearable jewellery item from recycled materials.
Here are my entries.
The first is a silver and copper necklace from my now newly christened On The Wing collection, and also a silver pendant.
The second was more of a challenge for me, as it took a while for me to come up with something I LOVED, and not just a make for the makes sake! I have melted a pile of scrap and then added a few AMAZING beads handmade by Caroline at
I have now got about an hour of polishing to do, and will of course be back to show off the new makes!!.
