Birthday treat



Have just made this seed box for my lovely brother inlaws 70th birthday today he loves his seeds and particularly unusual vegetable seeds which are enclosed and I forgot to photograph but they consist of seeds like yellow striped aubergines ,yellow mangetout, black radish and strawberry spinach but my favourite were the chilli seeds named chilli willy they grow just like one LOL
Anyway it was a book shaped undecorated box I got from QD for a couple of quid painted it with some mixed mediums and the metal embossed title is a little thing Nicks taught me to do a while back during a visit to her lovely home
