She's a little bit, hmmm, what shall I say here? Quirky, eccentric, zany, obsessive an interesting character to say the least!
She's a 'try hard', a square peg in a round hole, but that doesn't stop her from 'having a go'
Muriel is gracing the front of two book covers.
She's likes to think she's a bit of a trend setter, whether these trends 'take off' or not remains to be seen........
She decided to join the 'blue rinse' brigade, well before her time.
She thinks the colour suits her particularly when she puts on her new 'op shop' glasses.
She's planning on joining the local book club and thinks she will fit in nicely........
She also has a slight obsession with Peter Pan collars and puff sleeves. They bring back happy memories of matching candy striped party dresses her mum used to dress her and her sister in.
Harking back to her childhood, when she was carefree and happy and never worried about what people thought of her or if she fitted in or not.
Muriel will no doubt be making more appearances in the future.
I found these two photos on the camera when I was down loading and would like to share them with you.
I whipped up a new bunny for my stall at the weekend and sold it before I even thought to take a pic of it, doh!
Just had to make another as I rather enjoyed putting him together.
I wanted to post before I went to work so here he is not quite finished but you get the idea.
Using a recycled woollen blanket and some vintage style fabrics. Love the colours and his little Suffolk puff cotton tail.
As you can imagine with Spring here and bucket loads of rain the garden has been taking off along with the weeds.
I decided to check out what the cherry trees were up to and imagine my surprise and delight when I found these little beauties amongst the leaves.
Last year during the drought we had a measly 3 cherries on each of the 3 trees and then to add insult to injury the birds ate them, grrrr....
This year it's a different story and between the 3 trees there must be close to 100 cherries. BUT if you click on the pic you will spy some nasty, slimy little cherry slug.
Whilst they don't appear to harm the fruit they do damage the leaves and there's no way I'm going to spray this close to the fruit being ready to eat, even if I use something organic.
The trees aren't netted, so chances are we will be sharing some of the fruit with the birds. But I will keep an eager eye on them to make sure we do get a taste!!
Can't forget a little posy for the bedside table, rosebuds, lavender and parsley flower heads for added interest. The bees are loving the parsley at the moment and I love the shape and texture of the flower heads.
