I'm convinced that I have a mischievious Sprite that sits on my shoulder...a naughty little imp whose whole existence is about making my life difficult....what am I talking about? I'm talking about being clumsy! The Sprite goes about dropping, breaking, pushing, falling....you name it I do it! If there is a difficult route round it that's the way I go. I place an item onto a work surface, it invariably rolls or falls off, smashing into a thousand pieces, just as I'm leaving for work. If I can put a finger through a brand new pair of tights...oh yes, straight through. I find it impossible to hold my handbag and a carrier bag and use my key to open the front door, not without dropping my keys or a bag.
I think this is probably not the Sprite's fault but because I go at everything like a bull at a gate. Incapable of thinking anything through, so I'm always tripping, ripping, breaking and dropping! The whole point of this little rant is the pic of the Hellebores below. I spotted some snowdrops covered with last years dead Hellebore leaves in my garden today, so in I go with the secateurs to clear away dead leaves, so I can see the beloved snowdrops and what do I do, I manage to cut the beautiful new flowers of the Hellebore too, sheesh!
In a way it was a good thing because I took a minute to photograph the exquisite beauty of this lovely flower, that like the snow drop bravely flowers when it's very, very cold.
One of the flowers, artfully (dare I say) layed across a sketchbook/journal I embellished today. I've used some lovely old foxed lace, stitchery, buttons and of course, I had to add a bit of Liberty Lawn. sold
