Ive put 2 challenges together this week in an effort to catch up so we have
no: 89 the crown challenge hosted by our
this weeks challenge no: 90 the bead challenge which is hosted by the wonderful Norma.
You can follow the links above to find other wonderful crowns and beads to admire.
I love these old black and white drawing plates of crowns which lead me to exploring decorative type. Bringing them the 2 elements together with fleur de lis pattern says royalty to me.
I dont wear much jewellery but when I do its beads. I love my string of chunky wooden beads and my long strand of blue glass. But my favourite beads are the blue/green polymer beads that a friend of mine made for me. I wear these a lot.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend mine is a little dull grey overcast here but I will not complain after days of summer heat we have had recently not to mention bushfires, floods and tornadoes would you believe? This is truly a land of excess.
I have been watching the Sex and the City series (finally Ive never seen it) and am quietly surprised by the the first 4 series which are witty and clever the last 2 lost their wind but are nonetheless made up for by the eye candy of New York city, Paris and the over the top fashion.
I am listening to an old KD Lang CD which I havent listen to in years rediscovering the amazing voice of this talented artist.
I have been baking bread and making chilli con carne with my homegrown chillies extra spicy and hot!
I have been playing YAHTZEE with Stan vicious battles to the end and lots of laughing at the loser dont you just love the comraderie of boardgames.
And work there is always work it seems to spill over into my weekends all the time
Hoping your weekend has been as fruitful as mine Ill pop over for a visit when I can.
Ahhh the sun has come out time for a walk methinks.
