Swamp Root and Lung Tonic

So a very kind friend gifted me and The Husband a huge crateful of glorious vintage bottles and pots (complete with vintage dirt). Donning Marigolds and using Rapidex and a hastily ordered set of bottle brushes I proper spruced them up.

Of course they needed to be displayed and so I searched online did something appropriate to no avail. The Husband, being the clever sort, said he’d like to build one for me and salvaged an old pallet from behind the shed. He added the driftwood to the front of the shelves and added an extra driftwood shelf for the littler treasures. It looked ace but then I had an idea. Wouldn’t it be perfect to add some words to the front of each piece of driftwood?

So… inspired by the embossing on some of the bottles my clever husband set about the driftwood with his pyrography iron and this is the absolutely perfect result. I am truly in awe of his creativity!

Oh and we really do have a bottle on display called “Dr Kilmer’s Swamp Root – Liver, Kidney and Bladder Cure” and another called “Owbridge’s Lung Tonic” … blinkin wonderful!

Burn Baby Burn…

So… it’s my birthday today and I always get very excited for my birthday gift off The Husband. He is so blinkin’ creative and always surprises me with something extraordinary and very unique that he has made me.

This year was no exception as I received this beautiful present created with the pyrography iron that I bought him for his birthday.

This stunning guitar is going to look absolutely spectacular as an original piece of art hanging on my living room wall but do you know I may even learn to strum a few chords in honour of the fact that this is the first time ever EVER EVER that my portrait has been burnt into a guitar … now how cool is that? ❤️
