Isn't that an eye full of gorgeousness?
Turquoise, pink, purple, yellow and everything in between.......
"What on earth do you want these for?", I hear you ask.....
Hmmm, there could only be one reason for so many hankies.
Surely, you have guessed by now.....
Yes, more bunting.
You thought I had left my bunting obsession in 2010.
No siree, I have dragged it into the new year with me and sooooo glad I did.
Mind you it is a wee bit tricky to get a good pic of it!
Ah, now that's a little bit better.
Hanging in the orchard, where beautiful bunting belongs on a summery day.
Or at garden parties, birthdays, weddings, any sort of celebration really.
Remember the old slogan "Things go better with coke" (cocoa cola that is!!)
Well, I've updated that to "Things go better with bunting!"
Do you think it will catch on?........
So here it is, in all it's floral glory.
There are 9 flags in all, but 8 make the photo.....
I had intended to make a recycled bunting, but when I spied the pack of hankies in the shop and saw all those yummy colours, well.......
You know how it is
And yes, we couldn't leave the Kombi obsession in 2010, it had to come with me as well.....
These little beauties are rolling off the production line, waiting for new owners to love them.
Need a little finishing off though, but that can wait till Heartbeat is on tonight and then I shall
be tying and snipping, ready for the next stage of production.
Do you have a favourite colour Kombi?
Mine's a toss up between he red and white polka dot and the pale blue polka dot, but then again I rather fancy the green one too.....
Heartbeat is being played right from the very start and I am enjoying it as much as I did when it first aired, oooh, about 16 years ago ..........
When we visited the UK back in 2007, we took a drive up to the Dales where they filmed part of the series.
Can't remember the name of the little village now.
But we saw Scripps garage and the pub they used in the series. The village green etc. it was lovely and made the trip even more memorable.
Are you or were you a fan?
This bunch of roses is for Julie at www.juliewhitmorepottery.blogspot.com . She asked for a pic a couple of months ago and they are bloomin' beautiful at the moment.
Some of them have had stems close to a metre long.....
Obviously very happy in their garden posi.
If you are not familiar with Julie's work, take a little trip over to her blog and be enchanted
by her wonderful hand painted faience pottery.
This is how Tig is spending the majority of his time at the moment.
I must admit on a warm day, I could quite easily do the same......
Well, this week is passing quickly and the lack of schedules etc. due to holidays has been lovely, but it also means that I'm a bit out of my routine and haven't achieved quite as much as I would have liked to.
Never mind, I'm not worrying about it, as I have enjoyed the week.
Most days after lunch I sat down with the boys and we played a few rounds of cards.
It was fun and relaxing and times like this don't come around too often you have to make them happen.
With school hols etc. it's been fairly quiet on the road past our home. No school buses, less work traffic, so quiet you can her a pin drop.
We all need to slow down, recharge our batteries, reconnect with family.
Well, it's time to hit the publish button and think about dinner.
I am trying a new recipe tonight:- Kebab Bi Karaz, lamb meatballs with sour cherry sauce.
It sounds and looks delicious and now my mouth is watering just thinking about it, so that's it .
Cheerio for now, till next time,
