New skip dive.

What is this? Something from outer space, maybe dropped off a satellite? Nope, it's from a chandelier I recovered out of a skip last week. There were two of them, I gave Angela one to play with. 

I removed all the glass and cleaned it up. Hmmm, looking interesting.  

150 pieces of glass, with a hole at one end for hanging, and a hole straight through the middle vertically. 
These could be hung in trees for sparkly decorations. Several could be hung together as wind catchers, they would make a soothing tinkling sound. 

They will probably be in my spare room storage facility until I come up with a few ideas. If I haven't done anything with them for a year, I might give them away. Some of my arty crafty materials I have had for a long time. Maybe too long.

I've just had a cooked breakfast. I'm running a bit low on fresh ingredients so I will have to go shopping either tonight or tomorrow night. Today I spiralized half a courgette, added some ready cooked noodles, and an egg, sprinkled it with grated cheese, and had it on toast. Very nice it was too. 

Update on the cat with a sore neck. He is doing well. Comes twice a day for a scoff so he is getting the anti biotics down him. His scab is shrinking and will soon drop off as the new skin grows underneath. 

Update on the hedgehogs. They are still coming every night, and I am finding poo on the lawn. Hopefully they will be well fed in time for the winter hibernation. 

Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip.   ilona


  1. It will be interesting to see what you make from the dismantled chandelier. Glad to hit kitty is doing well and hope the hedgehogs stay year round. So much to look forward to. 😊😊

  2. I would be thrilled with this find Ilona, all those lovely glass tubes, I'm sure you will find some imaginative use for them.

  3. That chandelier find is awesome !


I will not be intimidated by the stupid comments coming my way. You have the problem. I am happy in my own skin.
