It's been so hot here the past few days and this weekend was truly just gross...i really dont do hot very well. I turn into a dreadful old hag who will bite the head off anyone who looks at me the wrong way. LOL. Ugh i hate that sweaty feeling. Thankgoodness for the air conditioning but...otherwise i might be in the midst of a divorce right now...ha ha ha.
Anyhoo i kept myself busy and sane by creating a few bits and pieces.
This year on Ebay i am getting back into some stuff i used to make ages ago.
Like my Butter Iced Flowerpots.
This one has yummy pink 'icing', bits of an old colclough saucer (smashed to pieces courtsey of my naughty cat Bruce), lots of beads and faux crystals and a divine Millinery Flower feature on the front.
I take lots of special orders for these.
I have a few of these pots in my home and in my garden too.They look so pretty.
An old hanging cutting board that i have painted white and added some of my roses to.
Would be a sweet addition to any kitchen i think (but i definately wouldnt use it for chopping your veges on...LOL.
I loved this old silver bowl when i found it. Ive painted it creamy white, added some more roses and slightly distressed the edges.
Now a sweet pair of Romatic mixed media hangings. Lots of glass glitter, pretty paper, millinery flowers and ribbon . I love these just hanging over the backs of my chairs. Too too pretty.
Not sure what will make it to Ebay or Etsy but feel free to email me if youd like to purchase something before i list it !
** Oh now back to the subject of weather..... Yesterday was a real stinker here, about 40c i think..erky perky... BUT all of a sudden these monstrous clouds came over, the sky started to rumble..amd within 10 minutes it was like a mini cyclone here.Never one to miss a photo op, I stood on our front porch getting blown away and saturated as i took pics of poor Shane tying the front gate to the fence b4 it bashed into his car and throwing blankets over my car to protect it from the hail. Ahh my knight in soggy armour *giggle*.
Hard to see but man that rain was bucketing down and the wind was a million miles an hour (ok slight exaggeration there...)
This is the first lot of hail that covered our lawn.
Storms dont usually worry me but this one was a real Lu Lu !! My roses however loved it !
Now, As i sit here typing this sleepy little face is peering down on me....
My sweet companion Georgie. I better go give him a cuddle i think......
Lots of Pink Hugs and Kisses,
