Default Stash of the day...

i found this by accident when looking for rl gardening stuff on ebay.....its a little herb garden,15'' wide 6'' high 4 1/2''deep...it was £22.49....thought it would be great for a mini man...
Monty was pleased.. (you could make it with lollysticks and cardboard much cheaper..)..i cut down a large vientta tray ready to lay grass or sandpaper sheet on there..that way its detatchable and yoy make as many different styles as you want and stash them away..

Wonderful, Sue. It makes me want to go out in my garden and tidy up...but unfortunately I'm off for breakfast and shopping with a friend and a big rummage in the Works. Fantastic use of the viennetta tray, I do use one a week now I'll have to save the trays. great idea.

Well here's my bargain of the day. A solar panel with 50 lights, £5 from a bargain shop. I now have 50 white LED's, some of which I have used to convert from the small bulb lighting in my dolls house. I then used the solar panel and adapted one of the dolls house lighting socket strips, to power the lighting and sockets in the dolls house. An added advantage, is that I can have the dolls house light up automatically at dusk, if I want :0)
