Cloudy Angels and home grown veggies!

Yippeeeeeeeeeeee peeps its Friday again.  Yes again!

I have been really enjoying reading all your blogs and finding out what you have all been getting up to! You are all so busy. it makes my head spin, it really does. For all the readers who haven't got a blog, I hope you have had a wonderful week, hopefully enjoying some good weather. Although frankly, our garden was gagging for a good long drink, and I was tiring of lugging a heavy watering can to all the poor thirsty pretties! So  was glad of the spot of rain we enjoyed this week! Me, me, me they were all shouting..... oh dear, I know, the plants are talking to me now.  No hope at all for me,is there?!  Or was it all the Faeries and Angels which flitter and flutter about in our garden?

Another one of my stitcheries, a reminder to myself that just because we can't see some things.. they are still there!

And speaking of clouds......isn't it amazing when you take the time to look up, just what you may see?  Ha ha ha! I wish I had seen the plane do this!

Do you think that the pilot had changed his mind, or do you think that he was turning back so he could take another look at this!?

An angel! And who is she chatting with?

Could it be tinkerbell?!!! Can you see her? Can you make out her hair and her wings?  She is kneeling down. Or am I really losing it completely? :)  I used to love laying on the grass as a child and looking at all the pictures in the clouds. We really should try to take the time to do that sometimes, it is so magical!   Yes, look up! You may just miss that elephant that is about to fall on you!

This song really sums me up!  There is even a reference to Tinkerbell in it too, so apt hey!   It was one of my favourites when I was a confused teenager, and I really haven't changed that much at all! As long as I don't look in the mirror!

Anyway! Earth calling! Woo hoo!  Do you know, I found myself at the bottom of the garden yesterday, smiling at my trees. Yikes. Don't worrry, I did intend to go down there, I really didn't just find myself there, and not know how I got there... and it wasn't in the middle of the night either! Phew! Just thought I would clear that up!  The little white van, complete with hug me jacket is on the way!

So! What have I been up to? Well, more house painting. Its awful, it just goes on and on...and on and on.... I mean painting the rendering, not me!  Have you ever painted rendering.... Gawd! Painful! Remind me never to get another fully rendered house please!

Oh, goodness me, I would much rather do this kind of painting. I finally managed to finish these this week....

And I would definitely rather be doing this....

This is a kit I started quite some time ago (not one of my designs... I wish! ) She is lovely isn't she?

And of course I would rather spend my time tending these.....

Awhhhh! A baby aubergine!

Obviously, I would much rather be skipping about the garden rummaging amongst the beautiful bountiful blooms looking for faeries. Well Obviously!

Is there one here?

No......    Here?.......


What about here?....

Ahhhh, yes look! A little wish fairy hiding in the roses!  Sweet!

Now before I go, another big thank you! Thank you Jackie for sending me these wonderful goodies! You know I love them as I have already sent you an email, but of course I had to show them to all! A while back I won Jackies giveaway at her lovely blog, you can go and visit her HERE.

I couldn't believe how much you sent me Jackie, I was bowled over! look at all these!  There was so much I couldn't fit it all on a couple of photos... so.....!

Lovely owl bottle stoppers, ( their heads nod!), Notelets with thread flowers on them!, a tiny little dolly who's eyes actually open and close!, a little hoose too. Can you see Pinocchio? He is one of my favourite disney characters, a little gnome who will live with the pixies, and some chamomile tea for me to slurp with George!

A lovely card covered in gnomes, a really cute gnome bookmark, a tinsy sweet christmas decoration,  some rather fetching flower garlands and a gorgeous wabbit frame! Rabbits are featuring a lot in my life this week! Also a box which I thought had olive soap in it, but it actually had this little chap hiding in it......

And I wonder what is in this beautiful hand painted box and little present? Hmmmmm......

Gosh, how did all these goodies fit in that box! Even little tiny shells, and tiny star fish!

Some lovely golden lily body cream in a fairy bottle!

And finally this absolutely adorable stitchery, with such a warm and touching saying! Thank you Jackie and I hope I haven't missed anything out.... there was so much of it!

Thank you for visiting me, and until next Friday, I will send you all a sprinkling of fairy dust! Oh, and if any of you get the urge, you can pop here and help me with the painting, Ok? , No, I don't care if you live in another country, that is no excuse! Ha ha ha!

Love to you all, and don't forget to look up!
