Vintage ned looking for a new stable...

To rest his wheels!!

Sorry i am still getting used to blog mode again as it has been so long i have become a bit rusty!!

So i have uploaded all the pics back to front..please bare with me.

This lovely vintage old ned is looking for new pastures to wheel his lovely old green wheels.

He stands at his highest point at approx 15 inchs & he is very well loved..which adds to his charm!

If you cant resist these old eyes then please leave me your details in my comment box & i will come back to you asap!

Thanks..have a great week!

My Folksy Shop....Coastal Treasure

At long last i have got my backside into gear & done something that i had wanted to do for ages.
But sometimes it just takes that certain something to make you actually get up & do it..why i don't know.
For ages now i had wanted to start painting as i admire people who have this amazing talent...i have a few friends who are artists & one in particular really inspired me to get on & do it!!
So last year i started have lessons & i go to a class once a week at this class we learn watercolours which isn't what i really enjoy doing but it all helps in the learning process & i have made some new friends.
But what i do really enjoy is painting in oils as i say i am still learning & still have loads to learn but i love it & find it very relaxing. I just get lost for a few hours in my painting & don't hink about anything else!
I have had a lot of positive feedback so far which is i have just opened my little folksy shop 'Coastal Treasure' can click onto it from my side bar.
I will add more work as i complete it..i started another painting yesterday this one is more textured as i used my pallet knife more so watch this space....

Sorry it's been so long...

Let me start by wishing you all a very happy & healthy new year..a bit late i know!
Sorry i have been away from the land of blog for so long..but it has been quite a rough time for us here at 'snowdrop cottage' since i last did a post.
I wont bore you all with all the details but i had been feeling unwell for sometime and after lots of tests & back & forth to see the doc i was diagnosed with CFS (Chronic fatigue syndrome) or what some may know as M.E..luckily for me i dont have it severly as some people do but believe me it has been 'pants'!!
Never mind onwards & upwards & hopefully as we go through 2012 i will feel better & better,fingers crossed!!
My mother in law too has been very poorly & in & out of hospital for over 3 months..things have improved but she is still far from right. So all in all a very stressful & emotional time for us all.
But it's not all bad i have been learning new things which i will tell you about very soon!

Take care. x
