Yesterday Twiglet and I were treated to a lovely lunch by a very special friend. We arranged to meet Tina at The Lowfield Inn at Marton which is located between the three of us. It's a lovely place to go and the food is always reliably good. Tina came bearing gifts and I felt the need to share her works of art....
She makes these beautiful brooches using mixed media and if you click on the picture to enlarge it you will see she encorporates old letters making them even more special. It's a lovely way of extending the life of a beautifully hand written letter.
If anyone would like to buy one then it would be well worth a visit to their gorgeous shop, Indigo Moon, in Montgomery because it really is like an Aladdin's cave of the most amazing treasures.....including two of my pictures now :-)Thank you Tina for this special gift and for treating us to our lunch. You really are a treasure...we love you lots.
Tina and Twiglet came back here and we spent some quality time here in my sewing room. Tina had been trying to teach herself to crochet so I spent a little time showing her how to get started....and I expect to see some beautifully crocheted flowers very soon Tina :-)
I would also like to show you what a difference a few miles makes.....
This was the view from my kitchen door this morning ....the sun was shining and there were only pretty white fluffy clouds in the sky. My darling hubby planned to dig fence holes to put up a new garden fence.
Twiglet sent me this pic of the view from her window!
You would think we lived at different ends of the country wouldn't you not literally 10 minutes from each other!
As I said to her...'the sun shines on the riteous' :-)
Needless to say by the time I am writing this we now have a shower of rain. Guess the varied weather is one of the things that makes England England. :-)
