Some colour on a dull day

This stainglass art work hangs on my window, I saw it at a market and just couldn't resist, the colours are so beautiful. It is round and the size of an old LP, aparently it was the design proposal for a church window made by stainglass artists. I love the glowing colours and it is just the thing to brighten ones spirits on a winters day!

Still loving my garden...

This morning was so clean and fresh after the rainy, STORMY weekend. My garden was looking so fresh today, the veg is blooming in the tunnels, we have eaten well from it. Last night I made Spinach and Ricotta pies for the family - amazingly - no complaints.

Back to the garden, my pond has goldfish in it, there is a BIG daddy (or mommy???) about 9 second generation and now about 13 third generation. It is so relaxing to sit at the pond and just be. I hope that this mornings photographic offering will lift your spirits as much as my garden lifts mine.

I love my garden

Just had to go out there and draw... these lazy sunny days of Autumn are just to good to spend inside my studio!

What a blast!

January this year I was the first runner up - meaning I came 2nd - in the Pick n Pay Design a Bag Competition. It still amazes me how heart stoppingly great it is to see ones work... in public. It was a rush to see them in Pick n Pay, but undoubtably amazing to see a real live shopper carrying her shopping IN MY BAG !!!!!
