I am happy to see February, not that January was bad, it was a perfectly good month, but for some reason February feels like my new year. January was a kind of warm up and a successful one, now we are second month in, I feel like I am more on course. Better plans and more importantly, ideas to complete said plans. Hurrah for February.
This past week has been a fun one, we have had some sunshine and warm days.
I decided to have a go at making some postcards to send out to people. To make some cards I used photos I have taken, like this one of the flamingos at the zoo with some text popped on. Some I just used a plain background with text. All done in apps like Phonto and Little Moments. I like these apps because you are not restricted to working in a square. Fun!
At the salon! This glamorous shot was taken in the Hipstamatic app.
I picked up a box of vintage math cards and I have started to use them for an art project, not sure what I will do with them yet, but I will be working into them. Any ideas?
I have some cool seed pods in the garden. I noticed these as I was putting my tomatoes and sweet peas into pots to start life indoors. I now have so many tomato seeds in tiny pots, I am not sure where I will put them all if they all grow!!
We went out with the metal detector and found this fire truck with only one wheel. It was about a foot down, so it took some digging out. Don’t worry we filled the hole back in! I was impressed as we usually only find bottle caps and ring pulls!
Here is the truck all washed up (the wheel fell out). It is a 1976 Hot Wheels ‘Fire-Eater’. Pretty cool!
A good week gone by and another even better one coming up I hope! Have a wonderful week, happy Monday x
i’m happy for a new month too. february is short and just a little closer to spring. february 1st is the midpoint between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. i’m all for spring!
lovely vintage find! 🙂
I didn’t realize it was the solstice mid point. Nice fact. I am ready to plant some veg, but we haven’t had snow yet. Boo
