Something Different Saturday

Todays something different is a quick one as it's 11pm Friday night and I've made this after work (finished at 10pm!)

This is inspired by Val, one of my lovely followers whom I met today and is just as lovely in person.  Val came across my blog from Hope and Chances and the ever talented Christine Emberson.  Bizarrely she happens to live in the village to where In work in Spain and came in to say hello today.  Val said her favourite thing I had made recently was last Sundays challenge and the box I made, view it here

This different creation is a couple of candles I decorated in the same way however, as Val said yesterday, I had to use some of the bargain pearls I bought.

These are electric candles bought from Primark so can be lit, as in this, badly taken, photo

I have added a picture of the detail on these which is simply a bow, hand made rose and butterfly, Enjoy...


  1. Hi John. Lovely to finally meet up with you yesterday. You are just as lovely in person as you come across in your blog.
    You've no idea how happy todays creation has made me. Such a BEAUTIFUL candle decoration with of course the bargain pearls. Love the bow and the precise placing of the butterfly so the pearl matches the pattern. Very clever. As I said yesterday, I knew you must have had some artistic training.
    Anyway John, lovely to meet you and keep up the good work kepping us bloggers happy.

    Love val xxx

  5. Hi John what a great idea they are stunning,and of course the pearls add to it ,love the butterfly.Wendy could start a little mail order system,she could buy the pearls and we could buy them from her.
    How very nice for yourself and Val to meet it is a small world.
    P.S. the candles would make a fantastic gift for any occasion,thank you for the inspiration.
