Using jars, including those used for baby food as tealight holders has given us the idea of wrapping them in handmade netting to add a glowing charm to your outdoor spaces.

We make the netting by tying hessian string to create holders for our jar holders. They add charm and enchantment to summer evenings but perhaps a bit of colour would make them better. A bit more work and hopefully they will be ready soon.

After dismantling several pallets to give us the materials for our coffee tables, we now have all those wooden blocks that are sandwiched in the middle just hanging around. Bashed and nailed into place, they are in fact made from really good wood that in our mind, would be a shame not to reuse in some way…

Therefore we’ve just been out and picked up this drill bit. It may just be the thing…

As well as those great little wooden blocks from the pallets we have also been picking up driftwood and branches. Hmm.
