"what will be, will be"
said i, to me,
as i stood back to see...
Gladys and her glee!
|a little critter taking the job of pom pom 'looker afterer' very seriously, and quite rightly so, 'tis a job of the utmost importance|
|note the nice healthy gap between pom poms, perfectly suited for a bit of festive bling to dingle dangle|
|continue blinging until you can bling no more...|
|found this old glossy brown mirror on saturday's jolly. thoughts of painting it have crossed my mind, but in the end, i just popped some pretty flowers along the top and left it 'as-is' for now (do not think you are going bonkers if you cannot see the flowers, they are in fact not in situ in this instant pic, so fear not, you are still sane)|
|a beautiful mexican top, hanging in the shed to remind me of our travels and inspire a crafty moment or two|
|yesterday's jolly yarn dash made with my man, now sits resplendent in a basket waiting for the 'off'. fortunately my man has not discovered my suitcase full of yarny goodness and therefore willingly took the trip with me rather than announce "surely Tif, we are overflowing with yarn in the shed"|
|started the long old sort out of my studio for 'new year fresh old start' sort of thing. it started off very spiffingly and then i got sidetracked and rather bored and went off the whole idea of sorting and shuffling. may have to wait till Our #1 comes home at christmas and takes pity on me and sorts it all for me|
|whilst dullness set in with sorting out the studio, i went off and dabbled with the creative thoughts in my head|
|with the nights drawing in, i have started nesting within the shed, found a short string of fairy lights and several feathered friends feeling a little chilly from being outside all summer long. a nice bit of twinkling does wonders for the long dark evenings|
|some serious pondering going on|
|used dog feels a little overwhelmed by all the serious pondering going on in little olive's head of late|
|little olive trying to persuade me, her own instant moments account on instagram would be quite a jolly thing to see|
|the chosen set of drawers, once was an old pine dressing table gifted to me on my 13th birthday. a little while back i chopped off the top half, replaced the handles, painted it glossy white and wallpapered the top. over 30 years on from that birthday, this little fellow is going strong with his new found responsibilities of the utmost kind|
|used dog coming to inspect the proceeding half way through, before more scarves and mittens were added from various hiding places around the shed|
