Just call me Orinoco

I like to see myself as a bit of a womble I hate to throw away anything that may be of use. 
For those of you who are not familier with these lovable creatures they are the original eco warriors, they reside in burrows on Wimbledon Common and are difficult to spot.

My womble moment came when son bought a box of mince pies, his girlfriend who's Canadian hadn't had the pleasure of tasting one before.
Those little silver dishes what a waste to throw them away I thought.
First I tried a couple of ideas

OOh dear they don't look brillient do they ?
but then
I put them onto my fairylights on the dresser.
I thought they looked ok, not sure everyone else did even called them "tacky" what a cheek  :)
but my apron says

Well it's back to school tomorrow hope your all well and happy
bye for now

Hi Cate, Love the wombles. At the church sale last week, India ans I were looking at the books and I found a womble one. She was nowhere near interested, so I bought it for myself! The recycled pie tins look great! Enjoy the return to school, Tam x

I think your lights are very inventive. Just spotted a pink elephant egg cup on your dresser, I've got one in yellow and I must have had it over 40 years now.

Genius! I don't think they look tacky at all. Glad you're back and blogging btw. xx
