Hi there ladies, I hope you've all had a great week and have some R & R lined up for the weekend or are already enjoying your weekend.
I'll end the week here with a mixed post and a giveaway winner.
I enjoyed wandering around Union Square's Farmers Market on Wednesday......
These Orchids are so delicate and if you look closely you can
see some little green 'creatures' on the stems and bamboo supports.......
Little plastic Dragonflies, to hold the stem to the support....great idea.
I have never grown them, have you?
Love this colourful bike, great way to get around but I'm not sure about the comfort level of the leather saddle!!
Did you know it was 'Talk Like a Pirate Day' on Wednesday?
'Aye me hearties it were'....did you miss it?
I just had to go inside as tell my one and only Pirate joke.
Do you want to hear it?
Oh, all right then, I'll keep it to myself!!
Walking 'home' today I found this gallery in Soho with a Rob Ryan exhibition on.........yippee...
Are you familiar with his work?
These are all cut out of acid free paper/card by hand.
Obviously the photo doesn't do justice to his work. It must be painstakingly slow but it's so effective.
It was great to see all the detail close up.
The gallery owner told me they take anywhere from 1 to 200 hours....
If you'd like to see more of his work he has a blog here.
Before I left Australia I was reading a New York blog and the blogger was talking about all the water tanks on top of buildings
Can't help but notice them now....
Bit like all the chimney pots in England, didn't pay much attention until someone pointed them out to me!!
Got to say the water here tastes great too.

I finished off the sewing needle book and added a
feather on the back.
I enjoyed making it so much that I started another.....
I couldn't resist putting a squirrel on it.
(Bit different from 'put a bird on it'!!)
I added a ribbon tie to this one and just need to sew in the lining and voila....
Obvious choice for the back wasn't it?
Ok, girls here we go write the names out put them all in a
suitable bag, hehe.....
Give them a good shake around and ask No.1 to draw out a name or two!!
Yes, I decided to have two winners.
Would love to send you all a little something for joining me on my adventure, a huuuuuuge
will have to suffice..
The winners are
I'll be in touch shortly girls......
If you haven't read their blogs yet, pop over and introduce yourselves....
An update on how No.1 is going with his recording.
All the tracks are down and they have been mixing the recordings this past week.
He's enjoying being back in the studio and the creative process.
He even played some banjo on a couple of the tracks which surprised me as guitar is really his instrument
I have to admit I am a banjo lover from waaaaay back.
If you would like to listen to what he does here's a link...
This was recorded in January this year.....
Oh all right here's the joke...
In best pirate voice.
Q.Why are pirates, pirates?
A.Because they arrrrrrrrr!!
and because that was so bad here's another....
Q. What do pirates get when they grow old?
No apologies, cos you really wanted to know, didn't you?
Fab weekend to you all.
