It has so many different elements.

blank houses to play with!


I adore this little piece of
French toile - chickens are so appealing!

addition to my French journal
maybe I'll use it on the cover!

I'm grateful for such lovely friends...

Last year when I broke my arm,
my dear friend Patty of
sent me a wonderful
'cheer-up' package.

Just let me say here,
that I thought I had posted
this last year....
until I found it in my "drafts"
- I'm so very embarrassed.....
(At the time I thanked Patty by email)


The beautiful wrapping
foretold of what was to come....
I didn't want to disturb it
(well for a minute or two)!!!


An exquisite collage
is what Patty made for me.
Every detail is what I love,
so feminine
with old and delicate lace
and pretty fabric.
A

It cheered me up no end,
and I carried it with me
to show everyone
the beautiful artwork
my friend made for me!!!


such a sweet image


Included in the parcel was
a precious piece of lace
from her Mutti's curtain -
this is very special
as I know what memories
it holds for Patty...


"ART helps me Breathe"
is a catch phrase of Patty's
and I will talways treasure this
sweet piece of
broderie anglaise.


Thank you dear Patty
for such a wonderful gift
and your lovely message
on the back.
Please accept my apology
for neglecting to publish this post
at the time - I'm obviously
nearer to my dotage
than I previously thought!!!

WELCOME
to my 4 new followers,
I would love you all to
visit their blogs if you
don't already know them!
Kinzeey - no blog details sorry,




Thank you dear friends for visiting
and especially those of you
who leave me a comment - love you!!
Be kind to one another
hugs
