#30 days: A Deer, Hedgehog and some bubbles






After my visit to Bolton Abbey I fell in love with the Wood cutters shed, especially the wooden deer and wanted one for the garden.





Bolton Abbey



Having a wood burner, we have plenty of wood lying around.

     So between me and my OH we created our own deer on day one.




Then came the Hedgehog on day two, using up old nails from pallets we used for kindling.


and for day three I blew bubbles in the garden
(so much fun)

  1. Awesome creations Amanda, the hedgehog is fantastic :-) I made a reindeer out of logs for my nieces and nephew last Christmas but it was nowhere near as good as your deer!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend :-)

    1. Thanks Louise, bubbles 50p a pot and lots of fun, hedgehog cost nothing and would look lovely hiding amongst your plants so you must have a go at both.

    2. Thanks Rosie for the lovely comment, the birds keep landing on the deer's antlers which is nice to see, bubble blowing should be done at least once a week, it makes you feel happy...
