REVAMPING THE GARDEN TABLE A FEW OLD PICTURES AND OFF ON A HOLIDAY.E


My garden table was in a bad way weeks of rain and humid weather had taken their toll, it was wood stained but had gone a very dead colour and would needed a lot of sanding to bring it back so I just painter it lavender to cheer it up.


When the weather is nice it's a good spot to sit and paint also lunch it nice out here under the trees.


As I'm off to visit my sister for a week, up the coast, it's a nine hour train trip but you see so much of the countryside, I will enjoy the trip. This is my christening photo I 'm the one in white not looking to happy, my sister is the a picture in lavender and mum and dad looking very young, love the hats.  


This was a painting of us in Hyde park painted from a little photo.


As you can see the twins are settling in.

These two are having a chat, I just like this picture, what do you think they are saying.

  3. I think your cats are saying "You go first, and run for your life." :)

  5. Oh have a wonderful visit with your sister. That sounds like great fun. I think your lavender topped table with the pretty green chairs is lovely. It looks like a very enjoyable spot for taking in a beautiful day.

    The cat conversation:

    "You stay there, I'll be right back."

    or perhaps...

    "Don't rush me!"
