For some reason a week has gone by since my last confession…”the first thing to understand is that time passes”.I’ve just finished reading “My Secret History” by Paul Theroux and have that weird, slightly bereaved feeling you get when you have to close a good book and say goodbye to the characters who have become part of your life. At least it is possible to re read books.
Anyway, the wonderful Witchmountain summer continues with wind and rain and absolutely no need for the garden table where I had planned to spend a lot of time drawing and eating “summer food”.Its been lovely though to spend some time going on some family days out, imagining what it would be like to live in houses like Sledmere or Nunnington Hall .At Nunnington we saw this decorated apple tree which reminded me of Scottish “clootie trees”.
Well, I’ve also been making a few more brooches ( and some really delicious Fruit Jelly which dyed the jelly bag a beautiful purple) as well as selling a few of my “Snow Bear” cards on Etsy. I’ve decided to GIVAWAY a set of 3 cards to one lucky reader;all you have to do is look at my Etsy shop and tell me which item you like best…and why.I will pick the winner at random next week when I return from a little trip to Scotland; hopefully I will see a clootie tree and leave a wish for the fairies!
