HS:MS - Tray

A flat , shallow container for carrying food, drink and small items.



My tray is for the birds in our garden. I did contemplate cleaning it before I took a picture but 1. I couldn't be arsed and 2. I thought it might be more interesting with a dead caterpillar and grass cuttings in it.




I seem to be getting my mojo back a little bit but unfortunately this new found energy is going to have to be used on cleaning the house as I've neglected that over the last few days too. I suspect a combination of dark mornings, dark nights, cloudy skies and the time of the month have all contributed to my dark mood and lack of umpff.


I slept much better last night but we were disturbed in the night by a wailing 14 year old boy. Matt had decided to look at his snake in the middle of the night, as you do, and had come to the conclusion that he was dead so ran through to us breaking his heart. We resisted the urge to ignore him and dutifully got up to see the dead snake only to find that the damn thing was only asleep. Matt had forgotten that he doesn't have eyelids and presumed that because he was still with his eyes open he was dead. I wouldn't mind but this is the second time in a week that this has happened, talk about the memory of a goldfish!


Well I best go and put my mojo to good use before I loose it again.


OOhh I'm back again as I have just caught up on yesterdays prompt - card. This picture shows some of the card I have here. The grey drawers to the right are full of card bits, each drawers is colour coded and I shove any off cuts into it to use later, it works quite well.

I do like your tray Rachael. My tray - I bought a plain wooden tray, painted it then decoupaged the base varnished and added a little gold!

By the way I like the shot of your tray!
Love Di

A few days ago I could have written this post . . . minus the dead caterpillar and snake episode of course!!

Love your card. I am sorting through the house and my work/art/spare/junk room is looking very very much the worse for wear I am ashamed to say :(
