BRASS PLAQUE FOR TREE BENCH

When I was in Bristol recently I passed a shop specialising in all sorts of engraving and brasswork ~ most interesting and just my type of shop. I had been considering having a brass plaque made for the tree bench I recently made, which now is at the garden where my friends Sue, Fran and I meet every Wednesday.

Here again is the bench, after a number of coffees have been enjoyed over delightful and amusing conversation, during the past few weeks.



And today I fitted the plaques.



. . . a closer look:



I had to be careful of the wording because normally such an inscription on a bench occurs when a person has passed on. 

lol . . . all three of us being very much alive I avoided the words, "in memory of".

  3. A nice added touch indeed
    Good you took heed
    But hey, if you did not
    Could really bring fame to the plot
    For you could pretend to be a ghost
    A haunted bench then at your coast lol

    1. People would indeed feel daunted
      If they knew the bench was haunted.
      So I think I shall pretend
      And say I had a sticky end . . .
      Might as well have lots of fun
      And shout, "Boo!" and make 'em run . . . lol

    1. Thanks Linda . . :)

      Potted plants, maybe . . . but we are gradually planting the new reclaimed areas.
      We have started the next project of cutting through some wild brambles to make another walkway. Thinking of buying a machete or hiring a wild man from Borneo . . . lol

  6. And I am sure you will have many more interesting conversations with your friends over a cuppa coffee while sitting on the bench in the shade of the old tree.... what a lovely spot. And the plaque makes it so special, so personal. What a great idea.

  7. You know what I think? I think that's one beautiful tree bench and one fine plaque you got there, Eddie. I'm giving you a straight A. That's right.

    Now, excuse me while I go take a nap and dream about some beauiful, um, lap? lol
