Good morning from Kaiserswerth. It's cool and damp today, 11°, after having temps of 24° at the weekend it feels really chilly. But perhaps it's just as well that it's not too hot - the famer put manure on his field again yesterday, three cart loads of it, so I think the *perfume* in the air would be worse if it hadn't rained in the night!
My car passed its TÜV check-up with no problems. Not that I was expecting any, it's a reliable little Panda. The only shock was the price. I had an oil change done, and the official test - 154,76€! I can't remember it costing that much last time, the prices must have gone up a lot! Anyway, I had to have it done, if you don't do it, your car loses it's certificate of road-worthiness and you mustn't drive it. They used to have something like it in the bad old days, too, but they called them *pirates* or *highway robbers* or *bandits* then. Times change.
But I did enjoy the rest of the day. Got my bottle-caps, key rings, old chains and spoons out and just had fun. I put some white pearls on the bottle cap I made yesterday, didn't even get a pic of it, a neighbour came for a visit and fell in love with it. So glad I didn't show her the others!
I made 2 more using the photo of my Great Aunt, another one with my Great Grandma, and one with no photo. And I did another spoon with a distant relation. Here are some pics:
This time I painted the bottle caps with acrylic paints before decorating them.
The fourth one has been decorated with a small piece of ball chain, 2 roses and a key.
And now for spoon number 2!
For this spoon I used a similar colour scheme to the one yesterday. Here I used some cut glass beads from an old necklace, and other bits and bobs from my stash.
I am entering the bottle caps into the challenge at *Spotlight* again.
Thanks for looking, have a great day and take care!
