A new month and a seahorse !!

Summer is officially here dear readers and three months of summery things lie ahead!
Things I like doing in summer  time:   
  •    riding my very old but  dear bike, 

  •  gazing at open , turquoise blue horizons,
  • day dreaming,  
  • crafting without looking at the watch!!!!

I love these little changing rooms/huts on the beach and can’t stop taking photos of them. I think this ‘tendency’ is related to my little obsession with similar little houses (i.e. bird houses, doll houses , beach huts etc), as you already knowJ.

First day of summer and a first summer crafting idea for you!!:
 A sea horse made of  little pieces of  tiles , china and glass, found on the beach! 
Collecting theses tiny weathered, sea drifted  pieces is another one of the things I like doing while on holidays and it is definitely another one of my little obsessions…..:)

I put them in boxes and arrange and rearrange them, till I find the right pieces to give life to a little critter.
It may sound like an easy thing to do , but it actually takes up a lot of time and  effort, but when everything comes together and all the little pieces of the puzzle are on their right place, the outcome is very pleasing and rewarding!

I used some PVA glue to stick the pieces on this drift wood I found on the beach and gave it a new appearance using  sandpaper and varnish.
Do you like it?
I think it will add a summery touch to your home. So , why don’t you give it a try!
Happy crafting dear readers and a happy June to all of you, wherever you are in this vast world!
