Tribute to 100Wasser


Im using Pintrest a lot more I love it! You can follow me by following the link in the side bar. While looking at something on pintrest I started investigating Hundertwasser and then came across this teachers blog it has some lovely ideas on it.

When I set up this blog, I wanted to store all the things I find on the internet. All those nice things that would be of interest to my students. All those things that you see and say oh that would be good for A B C but then you forget or cant find them again.

Then a good friend told me about Pintrest................................................

What is Pinterest? Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, request an invite.

Im in love just what I needed :)

video link, felt, basket making and pottery

I was sent this link by my friend Olive, it shows some cottage industries in Ireland. A felt maker, potter, millinar and basket maker. I would love to have their life styles. I hope the link works outside of Ireland because it is from RTE and I know when I want to watch links from the UK stations they are blocked. Anyway hope it works!
