Inchie and photographs

Hello Everyone. It is raining heavily here so I guess it will be a good day to sort more things out and pack them into boxes. Thank you for calling in, it is always good to have visitors.

At Every Inchie Monday this week the subject is necklace


I made a little necklace from glass beads and sewed it onto a felt inchie square.

I can't believe that we hardly took any photographs at all when we were on the west coast looking for place to live. Vic usually takes hundreds where ever we go. I  guess we were just too focused on the job in hand


I have added this as my new comments picture but it isn't very clear in the smaller version so thought I would show you the bigger one. I just love the sculpture at Fleetwood of a fisherman's wife, children and dog waiting for his return. Many didn't return as the Irish sea can be fierce. A passing motor cyclist was admiring the view and asked if we would like to have our photograph taken with the statue-wasn't that a lovely gesture. I think he saw that we were two old bikers :)


We took this one evening on the prom opposite where we were staying. We are looking forward to seeing sunsets as we don't get to see them here on  the east coast. It was also wonderful to see the Cumbrian fells in the distance as that is where we used to live years ago.



This was taken in a park in Lytham which is further down the coast and a very upmarket sort of place with prices way beyond what we can afford. It will be nice for a day out though and to sample the cafe culture there.

Promise to take more pics next time we go.

Have a nice day

Love Chrissie xx

You and Vic are adorable. I love the statues. So cool when you can walk among them. The night sky is beautiful and the inchie is great. I love crystals.

Goodness gracious me, I was born in St. Annes (where the seagulls wear nappies) and know that pond. When moving up here I looked at the west coast but could not find anywhere I could afford so am really quite jealous of you moving over there. XOXO Zoe

I love your inchie and the photos Chrissie. I love Lytham, we found a hotel there that catered for families and we use to have the odd weekend there with the kids when Blackpools illuminations were on.

Great photos, sounds like a great place to live! Loved your inchie too- still can't believe how difficult some of these theme are for such small scale items...

Sandra Sch. said...

What a splendid tiny necklace... do you want a job at Small Worlds?! And thank you for sharing those wonderful photos, especially of the sculptures. The fisherman's family is a magical piece. I spotted it on your profile photo as I came here this evening but, as you say, it's lovely to see the large version. Reminds me of the amazing one of the children of the family which is at the Tresco Gardens in the Scilly Isles (magical too). Not sure whether that link will work, but I hope so.
