I was going to give it a miss this week as I was busy to day ...but as soon as I was free I was drawn to the keyboard and here I am. I haven't done much this week but I have made a start on my FH LO ...the lady is my Great Aunt and I have recently ...through a family history blog ... made contact with her Grand son.
I got so far and was not happy ... so I walked away and had another look this morning. I think I like it now and shall continue with it. I am suffering withdrawal from not Zentangling so I think I need to do some ....soon ... and I think it is my mind wandering, towards my pens and paper, that is the problem with my LO ... lol
Went out with Vicki and her nephews the other day and had a wonderful day at the beach ....and it was actually hot enough for me to catch the sun.The significance of this photo is that this is part of a remaining wall of the Shell house. The owner, way back, around 1907 ...started to decorate his walls and garden with shells and pieces of broken china found on the beach. When my mum was a child in the early 1920's, there was even a bus covered in shells. People would stop and admire ...and even sit and rest in the garden ...as she and her father did when on the way home from the shops. I love walking past it, imagining mum as a child sitting in wonder, looking at all the shells and thought I would show Robbie and Kristopher ....shame so very little survives.
I will try to pop round to as many WOYWWers as possible, later ....please forgive me if I dont leave a comment on every ones blog this week.
Take Care xx
