Wednesday…with pebbles

I have a pretty small house which always benefits from doors being open; it kind of gives me more of a sense of space…

I like keeping the open with unusual objects rather than a normal old door stop…

I also am someone who develops piles of paper; receipts, bills, cards etc, so it’s useful to have something practical to keep them all together in their tatty piles!

Hence these paperweights and doorstops…

I always have loads of vintage map scraps, as I make lampshades ( some will be coming soon to my etsy shop again )  and I find it difficult to simply throw them away…

I also find it hard not to bring pebbles back from the beach, but they often dry out and become less exciting than when I’d first spotted them…

I also rather feel for those pebbles that don’t get chosen…and it’s these pebbles I use, and even choose for a make-over!
