Antony Gormley on the beach

Just a short one from me this evening, I was a bit quiet on blogger last week, I didn't get a chance to visit a lot of the great blogs that take part in Handmade Monday .
The reason for my quietness was I was on a weeks break and went to visit some of my family. So no new crafting from me this week.

While I was out and about I did see Antony Gormley's statues on the beach....

Antony Gormley Statues

There are 100 cast iron statues along this stretch of coastline, you can read a bit more about the Antony Gormley Statues by clicking Here

This week I'm going to be doing catch up, especially as the shop I have my Hanging Hearts in have sold out and want more, how great is that. The shop is Cavern 4  and is part of Workwise who have joined forces with the Papworth Trust, it's a great charity that provides work-based rehabilitation for adults who are recovering from various forms of mental health problems.

Even though I'm going to be a busy bee I'm sure I'll still find time to enjoy this wonderful weather we are having.

I hope you all have a great week too.

Southwold Lighthouse

I had a brilliant day out in Southwold, it's a lovely part of the Suffolk coastline especially when the weather has been as brilliant as today. Southwold has everything a seaside town needs, rows of beach huts a lovely Pier and golden sands.

Southwold Beach

It also has a wonderful Lighthouse.

 I've been busy making and painting more of my Hanging Hearts, I love painting the waves and I think the Lighthouse fits the theme really well.

 These 3 Hearts are currently in a lovely shop called Cavern 4 in Bury St Edmunds.

After all that sea and sand I'm off to put my feet up and have a nice cuppa while I pop over to Handmade Harbour and check out who is taking part in Wendy's Linky Party.

Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine
