Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - enjoy!

I have my last entry for Elizabeth's recycling challenge at AJJ. I found a folder full of unfinished flower aintings, so I finished them, added some dots with a stencil and a quote - done! Thanks for a fun challenge, Elizabeth!

I had an early morning appointment with my doctor and then went to Cafe Schuster for my fave drink:

Some thinkies / funnies:

Some photos of a walk round Hariksee:

The coots always build their nests in the middle of the water:

This guy was having fun jumping all of the hens:

Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Hi Everybody!

It's Friday already, the weekend is nearly here! I had a busy day today. Had a blocked pipe under the sink, and needed to get a plumber here to repair it, as the water from the kitchen sink was running into my washing machine instead of down the drain. Well, he's fixed it, and the water is now going in the right direction. My floor was covered in black splashes and splodges, so needed to clean. And next week someone else needs to come as the pipes need new joints, whatever they might be. Next week I will hopefully know more. At least it's all working and I can use my machine again and pour water down the sink, lovely! It's good to be thankful for small mercies!

This was a collage made some years back, and I didn't like it. So now I have repurposed it. I pulled off as much as I could, and wanted to put a new collage on it. But now I have decided to leave it as it is, and have named it the 'Eve of destruction' I think there was once a song with that title. I am linking to Elizabeth's recycling challenge at AJJ:

I can see a figure in the midddle panel!

And a look into my messy art room while I was working there:

M balcony now has a few plants thanks to my home-help, but I need to paint the balcony! And here are also 2 faces for Nicole's FFO

And I have another tag for Pinky's anything goes challenge at Tag Tuesday It's very simple, just some found scraps put onto a tag with a ribbon added:

This morning at 5:30 AM:

And now I have lots of funnies and thinkes with faces:

And to end it all I'm showing you my ass and face at the same time:

I'm also linking to Gillena's Friday art fun.

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Midweek post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well. I had a busy day today - an appointment by the oral surgeon for the preliminary examination, and on Thursday next week he will be digging the rest of the broken tooth out of my jaw. First of all I have to visit my doctor, as she has to say if it's okay to leave off the blood thinners for 2 days. I hope she will agree, and then it will be done and dusted! After this I went shopping with my neighbour at Aldi and got my groceries for the week - once again things are getting more expensive each time. After I had had a break for lunch I went to Heike and we drank coffee and had a good natter. Now I'm back home and writing my blog!

Today I am sharing 2 sketches made many years ago, in 1992. I copied them with pastels onto used dictionary pages. Here I added some flower stick-ons. The craft paper in the background stuck itself to the back of the page, so I left it there, it evidently wanted to be recycled, too:

On this one I added some diamond patterning with a stencil:

We visited the wild animal park - love the baby boars:

The Mufflon is my entry for Rain's theme of 'twisted' on Thursday:

This is one of my fave photos:

I think it can't get any greener, just love the fresh green in spring:

The coffee bike sells excellent coffee:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
