I can't have biscuits in the house whilst I am trying to lose weight so when I was photographing this biscuit barrel for the website I had to improvise. I actually think it looks really nice with flowers or these shells in it and would look lovely in a bathroom.
I always seem to come back from the beach with pretty shells in my pockets so we have quite a collection (not these ones though).
I bought this Victorian shell purse when I was 10 (many years ago) and have treasured it ever since.
I have a new friend who has been following me all round the garden this week. This female blackbird is so tame (though a little camera shy) and every time I have found a worm I have given it to her as she is feeding chicks. As soon as I walk into the garden she appears.
