It really is just wonderful I am chuffed to bits with it!! Going to tease you a little and not post any pics just yet as I want to get it in place with the churchyard first and I need it downstairs at the mo so I can measure where the paths etc will go and there's not much point putting it upstairs only to bring it down again that's when I am likely to drop it or something equally stupid!!
So just to show you something I will let you see the little graves I have now finished off. Yesterday I bought a sample pot of grey paint in a sale bin for 50p and I didn't notice at the time but it was a suede effect and it looks perfect painted on the graves as it has tiny little grainy bits in it which really give it a stone like appearance! I love how they turned out and hopefully they aren't too spooky as this is a happy churchyard not a scary one!!! Bill is a more recently departed resident so his grave will have fresh flowers and not so many weeds!
I have been trying to think of little details I can add as I have 2 lovely big areas either side of the porch. I came up with the idea of a little plants for sale table which I think will add a bit of interest. I picked up the table for £1.50 in the DH shop ages ago thinking it would come in handy somewhere and it did lol!! And of course there is an honesty box after all who would steal from a church!
Maybe we can have a jumble sale or even the Christmas fete could be held here this year with a nice nativity scene there are so many different things that I can change with the seasons its a great little corner of Quayside!
