Summer Giveaway.

It is time for a summer giveaway. I promise it will not be one or even two of my old tin cans, despite them being part of a valuable collection.



To be in to win one of two prizes you will need to:
1. Leave a comment on this post.


2. Join the Followers List if you are not already on it.

I will make the draw, which will be random, at the end of August.
If you have trouble with Bloggers’ vagaries re commenting you need to sign in and untick the ‘stayed signed in box’, which will then take you back to the comment box.



Again my annual grouch, if you are kind enough to like my images so much that you wish to download them, it would be nice to comment and say ‘hello’. I know these remarks make no difference, because I am regularly aware of downloaded images, without the recipient bothering to comment.  I suppose I should just be flattered.

I want to recommend a book by Julia Manheim called ‘Sustainable Jewellery’ published by A&C Black, London. It was a random find in my local library and is all about jewellery made from ‘found’ materials, including old cans. There are some fascinating images in it and  it is well worth a look.If you follow the link it will take you to the book on Amazon, where you are able to have a look inside.

  1. I can't believe people download images without even bothering to comment!! It makes you wonder what they do with them!
    Anyway please count me in for your non tin can giveaway!!

  3. Hi Jackie, may I be very cheeky and put my name in the hat. I have been a follower here and on your flickr for a long time but have been very remiss in my blog reading of late

    If you consider I'm outrageously naughty then please just accept my huge thanks for posting on flickr those pictures of the blackbird having a bath. They have cheered me up no end. I have a cold at the moment and I'm sitting in my dressing gown hugging a hot water bottle and feeling very sorry for myself :o(

    Lots of love
    Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  28. Hi Jackie,
    Thank you for the seemingly endless inspiration. Always fun to see where your imagination has taken you post to post.

    Regarding folks downloading pics; I see the same thing happening and have wondered if folks are instead coming and clicking on my pics to enlarge them and that looks the same as a download? The thought keeps me from being so irked about it.

    Hope the workshop is wonderful,
    Chris
