The other day I had a lovely surprise in the post when my prize from the blog Dadas place arrived it is a sweet little painting of a girl and her doggie. I was lucky enough to be the person chosen on her give away. Thank you Dragana I love it!
Our Friday out this week was to Cadgwith Cove, we had never been there before, its a tiny village with thatched cottages and a little harbour. We spent some time wandering about enjoying the sunshine then went on to St Keverne for tea at Roskilly's icecream farm sitting by an open fire where the farm cats come in for a warm and to say hello to all the customers, they did not settle down till they had done the round of all the tables, very sociable poods. Wish I had taken some pics of them.
This cottage is such a diddy little thing it should be made of gingerbread and have a witch living in it!
I spent last week making assemblages of which here is a couple. As you can see I have used the cow toy I bought a few weeks ago for one of them and pieces of an old jigsaw too. I love wooden jigsaws, hate the new cardboard ones, they have no soul! This was one I got on ebay and it had a few pieces missing so I did not feel to guilty using bits of it here. I do have another farm one that is complete and it has lots of animals that you can play with as they stand up on there own. I will be scouring ebay soon for my yearly fix of puzzles to do over christmas. Luckily I now have a friend, Sara, who is also a jigsaw junky and we have a lovely jigsaw day where we just do puzzles, drink lemonade and eat biscuits! Looking forward to that again soon Sara! Well it was a productive week and I now have quite a stock of boxed bits for the show so I am now onto making jewellery and christmas decorations. The decorations are in the prototype stage at the moment but I think they will work out OK will put some on the next post.
Another picture of Cadgwith for some reason it got put at the bottom and I cant move it.
Attention blog readers! If you come back and look at my next blog, number 20, I will be doing a give away and I think you will like it! I know I have not been blogging for long and I probably dont have many people who read it but I thought it would be nice to show my appreciation of you out there by giving one of you a little gift so do hop back soon and see me (bit of a clue there!)
