Pay it Forward

Although I didn't manage to tempt anyone for
Pay it Forward,
I made this for
as I was going to receive her PIF gift.
( I know that's not the way it works ! )

I altered a very small tin 
by covering it with gesso
then ink
and adding a lovely image.
Then had fun filling it ! 

This morning Jo's PIF gift for me arrived
and I was Totally delighted.
I love the idea of using the old scrabble tiles & wooden holder.
I keep picking up the pieces....
so tiny & beautifully made
hearts & hens -
That's me !

The Post card is Jo at her best
and this particularly lovely.
I love her style.
Thank you so much Jo.


  1. Glad they arrived safe and sound, dear Penny! And that you like them, they were made with love (and a bit of glue!).

    Your sweet tin is on my dining room window sill with an identically coloured wooden whale - you'd have to see it to understand it!


  2. Those little scrabble tiles are gorgeous and I love your tin!

  3. That little box is a delight Penny! Jo is such a sweet dear ~ I just love her and I think I am beginning to really really like you too! I don't know which blog of yours I like to visit most ~ they are both so fabulous! ~kt

  4. Hi Penny,

    Just wanted to let you know I'm having a little giveaway to celebrate my first year's blogging, so if you wanna pop over......


  5. All just delightful!

  6. What fun to do a play it forward.
    Love all the goodies.
    Great photos.
    The altered tin is wonderful.
    Happy days to you.
    Hugs, Dogwood
