Here we go!

May 31, 2014

Woke up this morning all excited. It’s the day of the garden show.

Some of the paintings are all lined up on my dining room table, while the big oils are stacked against the glass door.

      Hello Jill, thank you so much. Oh my goodness, you’re 300 miles North of me in OXON. I keep thinking that Canada is so big and England is so small and then I go and look on google maps. 😕 I bet summer’s a bit behind still. Hope it finds you soon. I’ll pop round to yours and catch up with you in a minute. 😀

    You’re so well-bloomed, Veronica. 🙂 Love the pics. They give me such a grand idea of your living space and what’s important to your life. I hope the show went off like fire rockets.

      Thank you so much sweetie, me too! It’s given me the necessary boost to keep believing in these little saved paper bits of art. Now that the pressure is off, I’m putting together a little something to send out your way this week. Sorry it’s been ages in coming. 🙂 Big hugs. x
