I can't believe it's been a whole week since I've last posted. Tut tut, hope you haven't noticed. I've been a busy bee. A very, very busy bee with an 18 year old son but more about that later. Well...do you like it? My wall of flowers. I'm thrilled with it especially when every picture has been bought from a car boot or charity shop and cost from 25p to £3; oh with the exception of one that sweet Amanda sent me as a gift. Thank you, Amanda!
It is a work in progress as I'm expecting to add to it. I did repaint a lot of the frames, and I'm glad I did as they all sort of 'blend' together now.
Summer arrived last weekend with gloriously sunny weather which brought out many, many sellers at my regular car boot sales - in fact almost too many! I found some treasures though, one being this..
..a sweet nativity picture which seems to mean I must be officially collecting anything with a Mary theme. (You know when I was a little girl my dream was to play Mary in our Sunday School's nativity play but I was always an angel, year after year. It still stings!!)
Oh before I forget Kathy has asked about the little Barbola mirror.
I found it at a jumble sale and bought it for a £1. Only problem is that it is missing it's mirror so I have temporarily placed another mirror against it (even though it's too big) and am on active look-out for a smaller one. And finally, there was celebration in the Goble household on Wednesday as our firstborn turned 18. But being a grown up boy of 18 does not mean you're too old for kisses from your mother...even if you are taller than her!
