Got a couple of photos for you - images speak louder than words!
|Wedding brooch bouquet with Ikea flowers, fruit and vegetables from Pickwells (pick your own!)|
I've been continuing with my Wedding Brooch Bouquet which so far has taken hours and hours and hours....etc
I was finding it hard to get a good shape for the bouquet so I decided to go and find some artificial flowers to use as spacers. I had seen some in Hobby Craft but couldn't be bothered to drive back over there so I stopped in to Ikea and picked up 8 stems for 75p each. That's more like it!
They look super amazing so I'm well on my way to a finished bouquet.
We also took a trip to a place called Pickwells where you can pick your own fruit and veg. I had some lovely green beans for dinner and the boy made a yummy crumble out of raspberries, blackcurrants and 2 apples. All that food in the bottom right photo came to £7.50. And £1.50 of that was the Hello Kitty cookies and posh crisps!
Whilst in town, I spotted the fox mug in the photo below (£5 from Marks and Spencers) which was so beautiful that I couldn't resist it. I literally HAD to have it. I saw the cake tins (also M and S) and thought of Hannah Banana. Who can resist a bit of retro? I didn't buy those though as I'm budgeting (supposedly) this month....
And that's Lily at the bottom. I thought her silhouette was just very photographable. That should probably be "photogenic" but photographable just sounds better and more catty......
