A Mouldy Morning......

Hello All on this sunny bank holiday,

Just as well it's sunny as sunshine is particularly good (or rather bad) for mould...

apparently.....and this morning I discovered mould in my cabinet. It's my grandmother's

cabinet (or was) and in it I keep curiosities....and now mould.

Probably a combination of too much damp weather, central heating and double glazing.

Not enough drafts?

So now everything has been cleaned and is basking in the sunshine.

On the positive side.....I have been able to look again at my treasures after ages of neglect.

All small things, and possible inspiration for "Something Small for September" :)

If only they could talk.

Should get quite a few mini arts out of these.

S.S.S. Starts on Thursday. See you then, P.

Something Small for September.......

Hello All,

For the last few days it's been a bit like this

cloud, rain and dark. But it's cheering up a bit now :)

Still have to go for walkies though, morning and afternoon regardless. I do a lot of thinking

while we to get rich quick (unfortunately not found that one yet), ideas for art

projects (don't always remember them when I get home), and snapping the odd photograph

on my phone.

Mmmmm.......seem to have gone from glorious technicolor to monochrome.......

I try at some point each walk to find a bit of mindfulness and get rid of the mithering

thoughts. Here I was watching (and listening to) the raindrops :)

Most things lately have been large artistics......taking a lot of time.....which is fine but

I have decided to go small for September. Daily blogging something small, an excuse

to try out a few things without trying to change the world.

For the next week I will be noting down the ideas so I won't forget.

Hope you can join me for my blogathon.

Bye for now, P.

Colours in the Sunshine......

Hello All,

Just returned from a couple of trips away. The Festival of Quilts at the NEC was

as big and bold and spectacular as usual (though the travelling wasn't). I would

recommend anyone to visit.....loads of inspiration!....and colour.

Just before that it was somewhere a bit hotter where the colours are just amazing.

It's something to do with the light I clear. Adriatic blue!

And something rescued from the bottle bank

It's about three feet tall so it wouldn't fit in my suitcase :(

But now it's back to the grindstone, with a bit of art now and again. So check back here

soon. Bye for now, P.
