Checking In


It's been a long time since my last post.

I have been unwell yet again with bad gastroenteritis and

I am also on crutches with suspected cartilage trouble
It is my daughters wedding in two weeks time and

crutches are not a good look for Mother of the Bride. 

I am going to try and manage without them but will have to see

how it goes. Either way I will be hobbling around.

I have no art to share today but I wanted to to show you my latest Art Book purchase.

Juliette Cranes Colouring book Big Monster and The Painting Workbook by Helena Hennessy.

Two beautiful books for me to treasure.

I did manage a visit to a beautiful park not far from where I live that I hadn't been to before.

It was a lovely day and in the park there was a little wood covered in bluebells.

I have also been spending time on Pinterest. 

I remember some time ago a couple of fellow bloggers said that they were addicted to Pinterest

and I didn't see the attraction. But I signed up recently and found that there is so much more to see 

and so much inspiration to be found. Art-wise that is. 

Well I hope to be back soon with some artwork of my own, Hopefully after the wedding I can get

 back into the swing of things again.

Bye for now.



  1. I'm so sorry to hear you are unwell! :( Rest up! And enjoy your daughter's wedding!

  2. Hi Carol :D What a lovely surprise to see your feed in my mail box :D I am so sorry you have been unwell and on top of that you are having to use crutches; what a nuisance for you, especially as your daughter's wedding is so close. I will keep my fingers crossed for you that you will manage ok without them, even if it is just for that day. Rest well, and follow Dr's orders. :o))

  3. Hope you are on the mend now as I've popped in a bit late.
    Your bluebell wood looks just like the one at our caravan park on Cumbria. They are so beautiful.
    Mind what you're doing Carol you need to be right for the wedding
