Bumper cars!

Where Do Old Bumper Cars Go? Remember old bumper cars? I received an email from a friend recently with these AWESOME pictures. Sadly there is no referal link as to who made them, I would love to know. I'd trade in my Renault Clio any day for one of these beauties!
If only I had the money I would love to buy one of these.

Trip to Mum's

Got a lovely pic of the dog's on my way to mum's for the day to see the family.

Think they're excited?

It's Friday the 13th, unlucky for some. Not for this little darling. Today we rescued Zelda from the local pound. Not many dogs get rescued over here during the summer, but lots get abandoned. I know I can't help them all, but we had room for one more and she's settling in really well. She's a little beauty.

Project Delia

One of my current projects is my surreal dresser. Over the course of a few months I collected several random parts including 2 pairs of mannequin legs and 2 bedside tables. All of which were found by the roadside.

I've always been a huge fan of Salvidor Dali and surrealist art. So I played around with the pieces to see what could be made of them.

My upcycled pool bag

I have always been interested in green issues and over the past few years I have become an avid dumpster diver and try to the best of my ability to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill by finding new ways to use things. When my inflatable pool got punctured after just one summer it seemed a shame to throw it away. I had an old bag that was falling apart so I salvaged the zipper and strap and created a new bag from the parts. I lined it with my favourite shirt that ripped last weekend and I'm really happy with the result.

The original pool was 3m in diameter so I still have lots of plastic for future projects. I haven't been sewing for long, so I would like to improve the quality of my stitching, then maybe sell these as a side business.

My new workshop/office

After living in the apartment for over 2 years we finally make some progress on the office. I've been wanting to build a workbench in there for ages but the cost of countertop was over my budget. Luckily we managed to find a bit that was the perfect size by the roadside.
My macho man :)
