My beautiful steel tree

Last December I went to the house of a local artist who was hosting a craft sale and she had the most amazing tree in her kitchen.  It was like nothing I had seen before.   Twisted and contorted wire branches, bedecked with personal decorations and lights.  I went home laden with her fantastic glass and wire crafts and a photo of the tree on my phone.  Christmas came and went and I could not get that tree out of my head …..

Moving forward a couple of months, I took the plunge and asked Cheryl if she would mind teaching me how to make a tree of my own and I was over the moon when she kindly agreed.  I had two days in her studio and I now have my very own version :)

And the beauty of this tree is, I can decorate it whatever the season!

I am very grateful to Cheryl, not only for sharing her design but also for all the help she gave me whilst making it (and for the never-ending cups of coffee!)

Happy Easter to you all :)

A walk in the park


Such a beautiful display of daffodils can’t help but make you smile.

Little Tree

This tree was damaged a couple of years ago and was cut off at about 3 ft high.   Nature has worked it’s magic and the little tree continues to thrive.  Such healthy leaf buds too.

Fallen tree

I found this beautiful twisted log today, wish I could have dragged it home with me ……..
