We spent a summer evening in Whitstable in July, we ate fish & chips on the beach and then walked right along to the end of 'The Street', a shingle strip that goes right out to sea and is exposed at low tide.
Georgina took Amelia to explore the slipway while we finished our food
Pop Pop bought Amelia an ice cream, the first thing she did was pick the flake out and eat it,
then she got stuck in
I moaned most of the way back to the car, my back was aching and we had walked miles but I soon cheered up as we walked into Harbour Street and I saw these in a shop
They are so lovely! All made by a lady called Julie Arkell but at around £350 for one piece I wasn't going to be able to buy one. I had seen something similar called Prims in a Somerset Studio magazine but I haven't seen it for sale in the UK yet. So I decided to try and make my own.
I made a figure from paper maché and dressed it to give to my friend Julie for her 50th birthday gift
She loved it and called her Lettuce.
