CPSH: July

31 Jul

Another month that’s flown by which means its time for a Crafty Photo Scavenger Hunt Round Up.

This month due to people’s busy schedules topics were not set so I’ve used last years July’s 2012 Topics as its all new to me.

Something I Made

I’ve had a go at lots of new crafts & continued with the more well known to me during July.

But one thing that’s proven a constant pleasure during July is #postcircle & our group #goose.
I’ve loved thinking up creative things for my letters.

So something I tried this month was making decoupage writing paper. As well as on a small wooden heart pendent.

Just one of the sheets of paper.



Inspiration is also #postcircle related.

During all this glorious hot weather thirst quenching drinks have been high on the agenda.
Two of the #goose ladies & I discussed refreshing water infusions which gave me the inspiration to try a fruity berry mix I hadn’t before.


It’s lovely I might add.


I haven’t seen a single Ladybird this year, which is sad. As our native Ladybirds are in decline.

A while ago now I studied Ladybirds as part of my dissertation so I have a fondness for our native varieties.
Did you know there are 42 species of Ladybird classed as British, though some sadly are possibly on the extinct list now. I could go on all day about Ladybirds and Butterflies actually as they were also part of my project too.

I’ve hunted high and low for pictures of Ladybird DNA I had but they seem to be filed away. So this is my Ladybird Picture showing you some great colour variation in our native Ladybirds.


From a very interesting book called Ladybirds, by the late Michael Majerus & Peter Kearns.

Art Deco

Art Deco/1920/1930’s are my favourite eras but yet I’ve seriously struggled finding anything around me.

So a little cheat here… Have you heard of the Mitford Sister’s well if not google.
Nancy Mitford the author of “Love In A Cold Climate” etc writes her books set in the 1920-1930’s with the girls attending ‘debutante coming of age balls’ well just let your mind wander to the Art Deco opulence of such balls! And if you like romantic classics give Nancy Mitford a read.


I brought the pink copy from
amazon but the ochre version was found in Hay-on-Wye book hunting so has more of a fond provenance to it.

The Colour Blue

Blue; had to be the beautiful Blue summer skies we have been having.


Here is to them continuing through August!

And that is my July CPSH.

Next Months CPSH is hosted by Rachel at The Awesome Lady, if you haven’t popped over to Rachel’s blog before and you especially like photography blogs do pop and see she is a regular poster always something new.
