Busy, Happy!

Lots has been going on at the villa - we are expecting a new roof shortly, new colour, all corners pointed and restored!  We are also welcoming a new second car into our family, making life easier for us!

Still scheming in the background, will fill you in soon!

Next week I am doing a new market, so hopefully will have a good response there.

Lots to be grateful for right now! Busy, happy ........................ !

August Already!

August is here, how did that happen?

I've discovered that I need to brace my larger plywood panels for my cold wax paintings and have organized some help from my local Men's Shed.  These lovely men are happy to do all the carpentry involved in making my panels solid and free from warp.  I don't have the space or the tools to do so, so for a donation, I will have a job well done!

Today I washed my car, cleaned out my bathroom cupboard, washed sheets to be hung in the fresh sunny air and weeded my front garden.  I'm feeling Spring, even though we're not quite there yet!

I recently bought new quilt covers, sheets and pillows for our bed - lovely to sleep on and to look at!  A beautiful embroidered design, I love it!
