Rudolph Day - November

Hello Everyone, thank you for your visit.

It's dreary and damp this morning, and through the night it poured down.  I never made it into Town or The Winter Gardens, but my  intentions are to go there either this or next week.  I also want to visit our Museum as there is an exhibition of L S Lowry,  I love his paintings of industrial scenes, and his "Matchstick Men".

But I digress,

Yes it's just past the 25 of the month and time for Sarn's last Rudolph Day for this year and also for Sarn herself.  I've not entered the challange as many times as I would have liked, but I do have a small pile of Christmas cards - thanks to Sarn, and come  January,  Mo is taking over.

My cards for this month are Inchies (my go to when insperation is lacking)  made from Snippets.

Card:  White and Red snippets
Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug "Snowflakes"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Christmas Joy"
Snowflakes and Heart :  Found
Bits & Bobs:  Silver gems

Card:  White and Red snippets
Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug "Holly"
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Christmas Joy"
Bits & Bobs:  Heart found, Red Gems, 
Nellie Snellen leaf punch (imitation Holly leaves LoL)
I'm heading over to the Playground with my cards, and  hope the weather is better, but think I will take with me Mac and Brollie just incase.

Thank you for your comments,  I love to read them.

Hello Everyone, thank you for your visit.

It seems such a long time since I made any cards, mainly due to a lack of insperation,  also wanting to get on with my Autumn/Winter blanket.  I've been a busy bee, so much so that I've ran out of Moss yarn so tomorrow I'm going into town for more, and to visit the The Winter Gardens somthing I've been promising myself for months.

 And, I've made a card, one of my Inchies, which  Ollie has to get in on LoL.

I've used lots of snippets so I am going over to the Playground with my card.

Card:  White and Blue
Design Paper:  Snippets from DCWV Linen Closet
Stamps;  SU Best of Flowers coloured with SU Markers
Bits & Pieces:  Woodware Square and Heart, SU 3/4" circle, XCut tiny Butterfly Punches, Gems

 *  Addicted to Stamps - Lots of Layers

This morning

Thank you for your comments.

Hello Everyone, thank you for your visit today.

The weather over the  past few days has been  damp, dull and gloomy, with no possibility of any washing drying outside.  

Today is bright, sunny and mild, and I have a line of towels drying on the line.

This morning while out shopping I decided to take a peek in my favourite charity shop, and this is what I found.

 A stunning white vase with deep  images of tulips (I think)  around the side, for which I paid the sum of £1, can you believe it.   The coloured flowers are from Ikea, and I found the white ones in a cupboard.  Along side my vase are Jemima Puddleduck and Pigling Bland.

Walking past the flower shop I couldn't resist a pot of Hyacinths.  I've placed them on my beside cabinet, I'm not too sure what colour they are, but the perfume will make up for not knowing the colour.  Gentleman Mouse and  The Tailor of Gloucester are beside them.

Not a very good photo but can you see the sun shining  inbetween the skeleton branches of my neighbours tree. 

A white fruit bowl I bought a few weeks' ago  at a charity shop , I think I paid £2 for this.  And, can you see the shadow behind it, yes it's from the sun.

We are busy decorating the hallway, when I say we I mean T.  There is only the glossing to finish, new handles for the doors, a new front  door mat,  and a new carpet to be put on the stairs.

I'm at the computer writing my post and I can hear the birds singing,  the seagulls crying, and see a beautiful bright blue sky.

I think a cup of Green tea is called for and then  a little crochet, which is  slowly progressing.  I will post an update in a few days.

Thank you for your comments.  Enjoy the rest of your Day.

Liebster Award

Hello Everyone, thank you for your visit.

I'm afraid, today is looking a bit overcast -  it's not raining (as yet) but there are no bright blue skies instead the sky is  pale, pale blue, and the sea  is mid to dark grey,  but it's mild for almost the end of November.

Gillian of  Hookin A  Yarn  has nominated me for  the Liebster Award (thank you Gillian)  where I  answer 5 questions about myself.    Here goes:-

Are you a Morning person ??
Most definately, I love my early morning runs on the sand.

Do you prefer tea/coffee ??
My breakfast cup is tea leaf Darjeeling tea, and the remainder of the day I drink Green Tea.

If you could buy any craft supply of your choice, what would be it  ?? 
This is a difficult question - I can't think of a particular craft item/supplies  just now (sad I know)

What has been your most disastrous make  ??
Another a difficult question -  I tend to remake or reuse  anything I'm not happy with 
(that's how my Inchie cards came into being, and my BIG, BIG  snippets piles)

What is your favourite season of the year, and why ??
I love, Nature and embrace all Seasons as I think each season is unique and has a special beauty of it's own.
But if I had to choose, and I do, it would be Autumn/Winter because of the stunning, wonderful colours, the freshness of the air against my face, listening to the rain patter against the window especially when I am cosy and warm in bed reading.

Do you like shopping, or do you do it because you have to ??
I don't dislike shopping it just depends on what I am shopping for.

I now have to nominate six blogs, but this is so difficult as each and everyone of you are special to me, therefore, if you would like this award please take it with my love, and let us know FIVE things about yourself.

Hello Everyone, thank you for your visit.

After a few inactive mornings, this morning was damp but mild and dry  so on with my big girls running shoes and away I go.

I love my early morning time to myself  (my thinking time)  it's peaceful,  undisturbed and quiet.  I especially enjoy my first view of the sky and sea and it always amazes me the colour and beauty of  Nature,  which got me thinking about colour, dark or light, vibrant or pastel.  The dark dreary days of Autumn/Winter or the bright sunny days of Spring/Summer.

Colour around us:-

Yes, even the humble Mushroom

An almost dead leaf


No matter what the time of year, Nature is both beautiful and very colourful.

I will be round to catch up with you all after my tea.

Thank you for your comments, I love to read them.
