This week's smiles....week 139

Hello all.  As you know Friday is the day of the week when I share my week's smiles and set up the new Mr Linky at the bottom for all of you to link up your smiles.  Please feel free to link yours up at any point in the week and to even call back to link more later in the week if you want to.....there are no limits to smiles.  We can never have too many so please keep them coming.

Thank you to all who joined in last week.  There were so many wonderful things to smile about and this week I'm featuring Elizabeth's post with all her fab photos of the yarn bombing in Selkirk.  What a fun thing to do....I'm certain many smiles were caused by the colourful results.  Thanks for sharing your pics Elizabeth.

We had a funeral to attend in Lincolnshire last Thursday so chose to travel over there on the Wednesday evening after work and to stay in a hotel until Saturday morning.....a couple of days away from the dust and mess was much appreciated.  On the Friday we went to Lincoln and in the castle grounds we saw these.....

These Barons had been around the city but had recently been moved and were displayed in the castle grounds.  They were all different and each one represented something relevant to Lincolnshire [if you click on the pics you should be able to enlarge them].

I think I snapped most of them....aren't they gorgeous?  Wonderful designs. Amazing works of art and fab colours.

Sunday afternoon we babysat for Amy and took Phoebe, Lulu and Steve to a brilliant play park in Wrexham.  There was a lot of fun had by all....and ice creams too  :-)

Those are my smiles for this week....well some of them :-)

I hope you've enjoyed mine and will link yours up below.

Those barons are brilliant - what a colourful addition to a beautiful city.

The Barons really do look a handsome collection. What a great idea having them spread around the city. Great for tourists to come across as well as locals to spot.

What lovely photos of your fun in the park. I'm an icecream lover. Have a lovely week Annie. Barbxx

Those Barons are great. Mr Hettie and I went to see the ones in Salisbury recently but did not see all of them. They certainly brighten their surroundings up.
Lovely smiles from the kiddiewinks.
Happy Friday - even more so for me as I am not in work!! Yeay!!!

Just as I looked up from making my comment I can see a Tree Creeper on the bird feeder. He is fairly small and fresh as he still has downy feathers on his chest. So gorgeous. they are not bothered at me watching them.

Edit - make that a nut hatch....got me birdies mixed up!!

Those barons are great. I think they have rounded them up to be sold in auction later on, collecting money for charity. Or has it something to do with the Magna Carta?
The kiddiwinks had a good time by thelooks of it. You had good weather too for a change. (It usually coincides with rain in Spain).
Have agreat week,

Hi Annie, happy Friday - what fun statues - great characters with stories to tell. And who doesn't love a playground...it's great to see the kids enjoying themselves...and of course followed by ice cream. Nice to have a few days away, we did too. Have a wonderful weekend Hugs Robyn

I love those Barons. What a wonderful display. Time spent in the playpark with the little ones is always fun. Kate xx

Gosh they are so colourful!
I love Steve in his cool dude glasses :)

What lovely pics of the Grands enjoying the park. The ice cream looks yummy, but it is getting too chilly here to play in the park and eat ice cream outdoors! The statues look amazing, so bright and cheerful. Several years ago we had decorated moose statues all over the city. They were then auctioned off, but sometimes I do still spot one in its new home.
Have a great week!
