Friday Again



Don’t the days fly by?  It seems like it was last Friday yesterday.  I have had a mixed week, started off on a roll and by Wednesday things had deteriorated.  Everything I touched I messed up, you know those days!

I could not get my head around the colours, red and yellow for Summer of Color which was strange because I use both colours a lot.  I was going to flag it because I was really struggling, when this morning I looked at my breakfast,  The jar of vegemite and the margarine tub were red and yellow, my cup of tea was yellow and the plate was yellow.  Well I am no Tracey Fletcher King, so I decided to photograph instead.



Tracey if you ever get tired of painting cups and mugs, may I suggest you paint teapots!  I was googling teapots for a picture I am doing and found some marvelous teapots. Here is one I think fits in with my theme.


Yeah I know it is Marmite, but I thought it cute.


Give Away Journal

 This is the center spread for my giveaway journal.  All girls need some bling in their lives.  Some like my friend Shelly like a lot of bling, her home is festooned with crystals, sparkly lights and glittery stuff.  You can’t walk past a store with bling in without her darting in and looking.  Makes it easy to get presents!  You can’t see but there is a lot of glitter glue making an appearance and the tiara is pure glitter. So this is a tribute to those who need bling a lot! 


Some more postcards



I have just realized that as I was writing this that all of these are full of red and yellow! Der!  Last week’s winners of the postcard give away were Giggles and Stefanie Stark.  If you want a chance to win some postcards this week, leave a comment.  The winner chooses from the postcards on my postcard page (tab at top).  

Have a great week everybody.

  22. I love your colorful world. I think birds must be in the universal thought wave right now, as I too have been thinking of them. Will we all be taking flight? Thank you for your comment on my blog.
