dropping in...

...to say hello!

Has it really been several weeks? I'd not intended to be away so long but you know how it is - life creeps up on you when you aren't looking. Real life things that need my time and attention. So this is a tentative wave really. The first of the month seemed like a good time to ease back in to the swing of things.

The photo was taken at a fabulous Midsummer Fair I went to a few weeks ago. I love wooden buildings, especially when the wood has faded with the elements to a beautiful soft silvery driftwood grey. In fact, a little wooden cabin in the middle of nowhere would suit me perfectly!


And on another note, I do have a little giveaway planned - some of my cards I made for the gocco swap. So back soon.

Lovely to see you back Diana! It seems a common theme at the moment, gaps between postings as life or the gorgeous weather get in the way. I'm sure we will all be back to regular blocking again in the winter months!

Gorgeous cards by the way, I love them.

Interesting photo! Blokes love driftwood grey, the colour of potting sheds, stable doors & garages where they keep their boys toys :)

Welcome back!
I love the colour of the wood in your photo. After 6 or 7 years, my garden furniture is now a lovely grey colour - I refuse to follow advice and oil it regularly!

Take Care and Enjoy your break

Great to see you back Diana. I love wooden buildings too, and would quite happily live in one. I have a rickety old shed which I am trying to hold on to. My OH wants me to have a new one! x
