still nothing going right


I flattened some of my old spoons the other day
as I wanted to stamp them to use
as garden markers .
So I wrote out the herbs that I wanted printed
and got started .


I tried stamping basil and got this .


I tried again .


and again ...


I hate basil anyway .

Right now, they would look good in my garden Clare.

I thought my basil had finished so i cut all the dead branches off it and noticed there was all new growth coming on it. I love Basil and I have been told if you treat it right and give it lots of love it will repay you back - Your Mantra for the day 'I love Basil, Basil loves me'.......

I think your stamped silverware is at the wrong house. It should definitely come to live at my place!

Think I'll be fighting Shay for those garden markers...they definitely describe my yard...I've stopped calling it a garden, it is offensive to real gardens!
