Cheltenham Road

Vintage Dairy Label Coaster Set Tutorial  by Cheltenham RoadI make coasters (it’s possible you already know this).

What I don’t make is round coasters. I’ve tried in the past but never quite got it worked out to where the effort matched the reward.

While poking around the Dollar Store for my Halloween Candle Project I stumbled across a ton of plain, round, plastic coaster blanks.

It seemed like they had possibilities!

I was excited and full of ideas!

I snapped up a set and rushed home!

……And put them in a box and didn’t think about them for months.

It’s how I roll.

rambling ratz

I mentioned in my last post that the sparrowhawk had downed another pigeon. Well she returned today to dine upon the unfortunate beast for a second time. She spent nearly three hours, plucking and turning her dinner to get at the best bits. She may yet make it last three days.

rambling ratz

This weekend was the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch. I placed my camera trap on the bird feeders hoping to catch a wide variety of small birds. All I caught on it was this funny looking bird with a big fluffy tail.

Photo of sparrowhawkThe reason for the absence of the usual birds can be explained by the presence of the sparrowhawk. She caught another pigeon. At least it meant that I could add her to my bird count, along with wood pigeons, rock pigeons, collared doves, magpies, crow, sparrow, wren, robin and blackbirds.
