Things that start with F

The first thing that starts with F is FLU !! Geez louise i cant seem to kick it! I woke up this morning looking for the truck that ran me over and the handle to loosen the vice on my chest! Needless to say i havent found either one yet...but i will plodd on anyway.
Sam is feeling better but still has an icky chesty cough. Maybe some sunshine would help us....ooooh bring on SPRING !!!

The next thing that starts with F is FLOWERS of course. I finally found some oomph in my weary body to finish a large painting i started last week.
I love big sprays of roses and have wanted to paint one like this for ages....i just needed a frame big enough.Im really pleased with how it turned out. I have listed it on Ebay HERE

More Flowers...of the sweetpea kind....
This painting on a shelf was one i did for my friend Cheryl. It even has a cut glass knob on the bottom section to hang somethin' pretty from. Cheryl deserves a medal for waiting so long for this one. Its on its way to you sweetpea *wink*

Now last but certainly not least...the final F is for FRIENDS !!

I have 2 gorgeous friends in Kerryanne @ shabbyartboutique and Kylie @ abiteofcountrycupcakes.
Both chickies gave me an award this week and it made my yukky sicky blah blah days just that lil bit more bearable *THANKS GIRLS* I love you both right back!

It's the Wylde Woman award! HA HA i dont feel much like a Wylde Woman this week but i'll happily take the award! .

I would like to pass this award on to a few gals who continually brighten my day and make me chuckle my backside off as well!

1. Super funny, sweet and oh so gorgeous Connie @ livingbeautifully. Chickie you absolutely give me the giggles like no-one else!

2. My sweet Bunny girl Amy @ bunnyrosecottage. Amy you are without a doubt the most caring and gorgeous soul ever and i luvs ya bunches!

3.M @ Tales from an O.C Cottage. I adore M's blog, her creativity and fun sense of humour and her love of life. Oh and her love of all things PINK like me !

I could go on and on and on because really you all make my day when you drop by for a quick hello, and i love visiting you all so much. So if you're reading this right now then i officially declare you a WYLDE WOMAN !!!

So go do something WYLDE ok...not me but...the wildest thing i'll do this week is to take 3 tablets not just 2 like the box says...WOOOO crazy wylde chick i am ! LOL.

ok off now to blackmail Sam into taking his medicine...(those lil packets of lollies do come in handy at times like this).

Have a gorgeous and safe weekend everyone!!

Lotsa Love N pink kisses (if you dare because i cant guarentee they are germ free)

Even when you are sick, Shannon, you still have a great sense of humour! I'm with you on the feeling icky - I thought it would have passed by today but my head is still in a vice and there is still a brick on my chest. Hugs, (not kisses!), Kathryn.

Hi Shann,
I think you need a big pamper weekend from your boys. Feet up, no cooking or cleaning and tell them that chocolate...and I mean heaps of chocolate, is known to get rid of flu. see my theory is this; you eat heaps and heaps of chocolate which makes you very happy and all that happiness chases the flu bugs away.

Pearl said...

Hi Shann... I sure am sorry that you're not feeling well... Bless your sweet heart... the Flu can be such a wicked monster! I will send up extra prayers for health to come to you and your home...

Just love the new paintings! As always, your talents never cease to amaze me!!

Congratulations on your award, too! YAY... what fun!! You deserve it, Sweetness!

I hope you can get some rest and that the weekend is peaceful for you... God bless...
