We are adding a page to the blog with the war graves that we find on our travels, please take time to read the names of those brave young men and women who give their tomorrow for our today.
Today's walk was just a short walk to our secret location were we go to find our old bottles and broken pottery, the broken pottery will be used for up-cycling into gifts in our Etsy shop due to be opening soon.
The walk was quite muddy so our trusty wellies were needed once again, but it was worth it when we got to our little treasure island as we had some really good finds.
David's find of the day was a Blue Alley-gob ( first photo), we have three of these now just need two more to play the game ! We found quite a few bottles as well, one even still had the cork and glass bottle stopper in it, the bottles will go on display in our craft room, we have quite a collection growing now . A couple of the bottles were broken but we brought them home to try out our new bottle cutter we treated ourselves to at Christmas, we made these into tea light holders, we are just practicing at the moment but we were pleased with the results.
We found quite a bit of broken pottery pieces which is good because I am running out of pottery now, with lockdown we haven't been able to get to any rivers or beaches to collect anymore, I'm really missing the river larking and beach combing now .
With our rucksacks full of today's treasures we set of on the walk back home and we spotted one or two things to make us smile on the way back, apart from the little teddy that we tried to rescue but we couldn't quite reach him to bring him back home with us.
These are the bottles are nicely cleaned up.
We were pleased with all our finds today, lets just hope we can get to those beaches and rivers soon and find some more treasures.
