Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

God Save The Queen

It has been a fabulous weekend here in the UK with everyone coming together to celebrate The Queen's Diamond Jubilee - Apart from a PG tips Tea Caddy I couldn't find a souvenir that I liked that was within our price range, so I decided to make our own souvenir/family heirloom.
Oh look...... its yet another altered bottle - what a surprise!
and Oh Look... its a Gin bottle, well it had to be since that's the Queen's favourite tipple
and not forgetting her pearls

Proud to be British this weekend, and certainly proud of our Liz - God Bless her

(as I was publishing this I noted that it is my 400th post - excellent timing, HRH and I both have something to celebrate!)
