Thank you :-)

I would like to say a big huge thank you to everyone who left such lovely, comforting comments regarding my Nana. She had a long life and was very unwell at the end, so it wasn't a shock but still very sad when she passed away. Your words meant a lot to me and it was so lovely to receive condolences from all over the world.

And I was also very touched to read Erin AKA Toronto Yardsaler's post regarding the linocut prints I made for her "Pay it Forward" gift. She has them beautifully framed and hanging up in her lovely home (I made the black and white ones), very exciting for me to see, thanks Erin :-)

In loving memory of my Nana who passed away yesterday at the age of 87. Here is a beautiful photo of her looking radiant on her wedding day with my very handsome Grandad. Please God they are together again and happy.

Bowled Over

At a Church sale a couple of weeks ago (screechy kids in tow), I came across a lovely teal bowl I just had to share with you...

I nearly didn't even bother picking it up, it was low down on a shelf and from above just looked like a triangular bowl, but I loved the colour and had a closer look...

It has sections cut out of it and really is stunning, it looks completely different from every angle...

...and it's big, big enough to use as a fruit bowl perhaps?

The best bit - it cost 50 cents, ridiculous!!!

I'm off now to count down the hours till my wonderful Dad arrives from Ireland tomorrow, we're all very excited!!!
