Just a perfect day,you made me forget myself, I thought I was someone else,someone good......



A perfect May evening here, golden fading sunshine, warm and 'that Spring, nearly Summer smell' in the air....I took this picture a few minutes ago, of the Clematis Montana growing in the Contorted Willow Tree in our garden... all a glow. Anyroadup...I have been lucky enough to buy a few French textiles in France over the last few months. Here is one of the lovely night dresses I bought....


I thought I would embellish this nightdress with a hand painted sprig or two. Faffed and fiddled with the painting and of course...ruined, I think, by the addition of a very aggressive looking wasp...ah well!



Thank you all so very much for the kindest comments left on my last post....I have had the kindest and sweetest comments and I feel so awful that I have not thanked you lovely ladies individually, but please know that I have loved receiving each and everyone. Great to have new Followers too....xxxx Have a great weekend. xxxx

Hi Viv! Your clematis are beautiful! I also think you did a beautiful job painting your lovely French nightgown! The wasp does not look mean at all! You paint beautifully!
Enjoy your weekend! Love, Paula

Hi Viv, I've so enjoyed catching up on your previous posts, really rather relaxing! Of course I can't highlight my fav as I just love it all, so delicate, so pretty, so you. Mx

I am so envious of your clematis montana, I have tried three times to grow it here and failed each time, I didn't think it was possible to fail with montana's.

beautiful work on the nightdress too!

It should have been the good old friendly bee, not the devil's wasp! (don't mind me, I have a wasp phobia).
