It has occurred to me that this should be temporarily (we hope!) renamed 'Wet Wednesday' ... will this rain ever end!!!  We have had a few tantalising glimpses of sunshine only for it to be snatched away again and replaced with rain ... rain ... rain ... !  For those of you non-UK woyww-ers, you must by now have realised how much we English luuuurrrrrve to complain about the weather!  If it's wet ... it's too wet, if it's hot ... it's too hot etc etc etc !  Don't you just love us.... lol!

Anyway, back to the task in hand ...

Sadly, not too much going on this week.  I have had laptop and email issues so spent a very pleasant hour or so in the Apple shop with Mr Tim (very nice and not at all dim) at the Genius Bar (and they don't call it that for nothing!).  He was very patient and didn't sigh, roll his eyes or smirk at any of my daft questions and now all is well (although technically there was nothing wrong with it, all user error *cough*).

I thought I'd share with you what WAS on my desk and the finished articles so hope that's ok with everyone ...

Firstly, some sweet little signs for your garden or shed ...

And those dinky little terracotta pots that I just love to paint ... : )

So that's all from me for the moment.  I'm off to carry on playing with my 'mac' ... gotta lot of catching up to do!

Big thanks to all you WOYWW-ers for visiting and for sharing your wonderful work, all courtesy of the fab Julia at The Stamping Ground ( for getting us all together.

Have a great week and ... happy painting ...

  1. Oooh I love your garden signs and pots, they are awesome! Sorry to hear you have been having computer problems, I do hope everything has all been fixed for you now :)

    Have a fab WOYWW and a lovely week, Hugs, Karen xx #49

  2. Ok it is not just in the UK you complain about the weather I am in the New England area in the US and we have the most unpredicable weather. We spend at least the first five minutes when greeting eachother with weather grumblings. There's even a saying that is typically used to comfort (which it certainly does not) to others we say "Well it's typical New England weather. At least we get the pretty seasons and fall folliage." Now you tell me does that make you feel any better when it's raining buckets out there or the snow is up to your knees?

    Sorry about your computer problems.

    On the bright side, I love love your garden signs. Love them.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Come play on my desk!
