Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and have mostly escaped from the worst of the weather, it is so sad to see the devastation that it causes to peoples lives, it must be so heartbreaking, for those little things, like your childrens art work, however simple and naive, it is irreplacable, take our wedding photos as an example, they can't be replaced, there were no digital copies, it just doesn't bare thinking about, we do have them in a high place, not that we are by a river or anything, but neither were friends of ours and they ended up living in a mobile home for 18months while thier home was dried out and rebuilt. So lets hope we have seen the last of the torrential rain for a while.
I feel for the people that have spent £200 + on tickets for Glastonury too, what a mess, I was watching them all wade through the inches of mud and they had to pitch tents and camp in that, YUK!
I guess I can't get let the day slip by without mentioning the EU Referendum, I have to say I was surprised at the outcome, I'm can't help but wonder what lies ahead, I wonder what the exchange rate will be for my Euros in the next few weeks, hopefully its just panic 'knee jerk' reactions!! What do you all think?
Now onto today's Crafts and gardens.........
First up today is Cheryl's AMAZING Kanzashi Flower, it is just so beautiful, each fold is absolutely perfect,
I thought that it would be impossible to make but after looking on Cheryl's Pinterest page and following a link to a You Tube Tutorial on the flower, I think I might have a go, thank you so much for allowing me to share your flower Cheryl, I can't wait to see all of your finished Crafts for your stall. xxx
Two Crafts from our Lynda next, a stunning tag which Lynda has covered with Gilding Flakes, then stamped a Inkyliscious Stamp on top of the flakes, finishing it off with some pretty lace.
I absolutely love the frame that Lynda has created, decorated beautifully with flowers and some metal embellishments, I love that vintage image too. I am looking forward to finding out what you have used to create the texture around the frame Lynda, thank you so much for sharing your crafts xxx
Now onto the absolutely gorgeous images of Margaret's Garden, it looks like a wild meadow, which Alan has said was the look he was going for ! If those are the results you get I think I might follow the 'Wild' Garden look from now on, it looks like that Butterfly is enjoying the wild garden too, thank you so much for snapping your beautiful flowers and sharing them with us Margaret, I would also like to say that I hope you have an amazing time in France this coming week with your Boule group xxx
I couldn't resist sharing this adorable photo of Harry on his Birthday present, he looks like he loves it, who got the job of running up and down the road after him, hahaha, thank you for sharing Lynda xxx
We just about finished the Prom shopping, shoes, make up, gel cushions to go under the balls of their feet to prevent slipping, the biggest laugh of all was looking for the 'right' bra !! Lucy's dress is sheer on the shoulders and back, covered in gems but sheer for the most part, so no bra straps or bra back, we were originally looking for these 'stick on' things, which basically looked like strips of tape that wrap your boobs,
at between £10 - £20 for 1 use, I thought 'no', so we carried on looking and came across the perfect solution, a bra that has both a clear and 'normal' back strap and the same for the shoulder straps, you can also wear it strapless, so I thought that you couldn't get anything more versatile so I got them 1 each as Sophie will have to go strapless! I never thought that you could get a 'five-way, clear strapped' bra, which proves that every day is a school day, I was truly amazed, or easily pleased!!
Believe me, two teenagers and that amount of shopping can and will cause headaches!!
Val, I hope you have a fun weekend away with Lynn xx
Janet, how were your first pastries, oh and what was the gossip in the cafe this week, I wonder if they were talking about Britain leaving the EU?!
Thank for so much to all of todays contributors, I am as always hugely grateful to be able to share your work.
Love and hugs
