"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any passers by.  Welcome to my Blog, hope you like what you see and call again soon.  
Beautiful morning here after a horrible rainy day yesterday.  Off to get the washing hung out and the house cleaned. 
Can hardly believe that this time (7.15am) last Friday Hazel and I were taxing down the runway of Edinburgh Airport on our way to Belfast.  Who stole last week................????
Oldie for Friday was started by Erika over at:-
It is just for fun ...  any crafting you have done in the past is what is wanted.
Here is mine for today:-

A little posy of flowers I made rather than decorate a Horseshoe.  The boys presented this at a wedding we attended back in May 2011.
The instructions came from a Craft Magazine .... I wish I had kept the Magazine, I don`t have a clue how to make those flowers.

Thought I would throw these into the mix...... not old, taken on Wednesday when I was out for a walk.
The road back home ...
 What surrounded me on my walk
The one below is looking back to the village from the Main Road.  It is there hidden in the valley.
Our Village is just a few houses.  No shop no nothing !!!!  The tiny village school closed years ago along with the church
OK ..... enough!!!

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate it
Till next time

  6. Stunning creation Patricia. The colours are gorgeous and the flowers look so beautiful. Looks like a lovely walk you had too. I enjoying walking too, but don't get the chance very often now. I do walk for the daily papers every day though and that is only about half a mile. Hugs Rita xxx

  8. Your flowers are very eye catching! I love them. What a beautiful area you live in! It looks so calm and makes me want to come for a visit. Just a gorgeous country!

  9. Hi Patricia,
    oh what a really great Oldie.
    I do remember this, and how beautiful it was.
    The flowers are very striking, and very unusual.
    Yes it's a pity you didn't keep the magazine, as I'm sure we would all like to know how to make them.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  10. Hi Patricia,
    forgot to say lovely pictures of your area were you live.

  11. This is really pretty does the magazine have a web site - could there be back issues or favourite makes on there? I'm lucky enough to live in a garden city so we have the best of both worlds, lots of amenities and beautiful countryside near by

  12. Gorgeous creation once again...lovely added goodies and beautiful colour tones. Have a great weekend xxx

  13. Morning Patricia, Wow !! this posy is beautiful and those 3-D flowers are 'divine', such a shame that you can't remember the magazine they came from, they are so different, and obviously paper folding, gorgeous !!
    Your piccies are lovely of your walk, you live in a beautiful part.
    Enjoy your weekend, and we even lose an hour too, great !!!!!
    lots of love from Patricia xx

  14. Morning Patricia I love your floral arrangement, I have admired this style of flower for a while, origami I think, another thing I'd like to my must make bucket list!
    Your photographs are super and it looks like you live in an idyllic spot especially now the weather is improving.

  20. The posy looks beautiful. I remember making those flowers a few years ago from a block of post it notes when trying to avoid writing essays. Thanks for bringing back some happy memories.

  21. Hi Patricia,
    These are simply stunning, and thank you to Chloe's Gran, I'll look on the site she mentions when I finish this.
    It looks idyllic where you live, and I'd love to live somewhere like that, but I think as I've lived in the City all these years, I'd take it hard.

  23. Beautiful posy Patricia. Love your photographs. There is nothing quite like living in a small village it is a different way of life. I have the added advantage of being beside the sea which is wonderful.

  24. Hi Patricia,
    Love the bouquet, and if anyone wants to try, here is a link.
    Haven't tried them yet, but I had thought they looked good.
    Like the pics from your walk, Perthshire is such a lovely area. My brother in law and family lived in Blairgowrie for a few years and we loved visiting him there. They are in France now, so harder to pop over for a weekend.

  25. That's such a pretty posy Patricia, I'm sure it will have been treasured. A lovely day here too. Carol x

  26. I remember making these flowers a couple of years ago! It is lovely to see yours, they are just gorgeous! I have the pattern somewhere but I will look up the helpful links above before I start looking.... Have a lovely weekend Patricia. Anne xx
