New Signs

So it's only taken me just over 2 years to make a street sign for outside (what a gonk).
I stumbled upon this art deco fire screen a little while ago in a charity shop and thought he would be perfect. After a day of painting this is what the finished product looks like. Neato huh?

Thank you to Louise Waugh for the use of your hand writing, temporary it may be, but i think your chalk skills were.....well, skill.

Royal Birthdays

Happy Birthday Your Majesty. Many happy returns, don't forget to make a wish when you're blowing out your candles. I celebrated by drinking luscious fresh peppermint tea from your face. x

My cats are such cheeky little hoots!

Featured in the first photograph is Dexter. Dexter is a very handsome fellow and such a gentleman, he is very courteous and ever so placid; as you can see by the way he's just chilling in a plant pot.

Prudence on the other hand is a whole lot of fun and always up to mischief. So it was no surprise when my Dad showed me this picture he took of her having a good old natter with a mouse.
