Christmas arrived before I was ready for it and so has 2014!
I'm getting much more sorted out in the new home, although waiting for my lovely son to finish various bits but I really like the house now we have improved her in so many ways.
Of course the garden will need tackling when the weather improves -
IF the weather ever improves lol and that will be a whole other story!
First some of my fabulous (recently hung) pictures.....on a wall papered with a paper that I adore!
The central watercolour one bought for me by great pal Mary and the other two multi media pieces I bought myself from the talented Lou of DrawntoStitch.
Her work featured on the cover and in an article in CPS and its well worth looking at her Facebook photo albums to see her stunning work.
Pieces come in smashing white box frames, incredibly well wrapped up too. And no, I am not on commission!
I didn't stay for the talk itself, I had other things I had to do but did stay long enough to buy a few bits off the sales table and to take a few piccies.
There was a display on the stage ( as is usual) of things that members had brought in to compliment the talk itself and Jean brought these adorable little dolls that look old, but she believes were copies of much older dolls.
( for further details ask over at JeansMuse.blogspot.com )
They are only about 5" high.... and are oddly cute, infact
they remind me of Mable Lucy Atwell illustrations lol
Am sure Jean would welcome information if anyone recognises the pattern used.
Jean also displayed one of her alternative dolls which I think is great fun!
I thought Paula's genie in a bottle was a clever idea lol
and loved the feet on this elfish doll
Probably as well I'm back at work tomorrow so I can drop the laptop into the IT guys, it worked fine until I downloaded the last Microsoft update!
I hope your all safe, warm, dry and comfy, despite the world wide weather!
