I was born in a cross-fire hurricane, and I howled at my ma in the driving rain...,


Hello!
I hope all is well with you and yours.
~0~
Oh, to still be on holiday.
Where the weather was perfect,

 the flowers were food for the soul,
 the sky was blue, sea crystal clear and the sand fine and soft...

delicious food ...


Early morning quiet,

glorious sunsets over the distant Pyrenees,

sigh...
to be on holiday.
~0~
And onto other things.
  I have been inspired to do a little painting and embroidery on envelopes just lately.  
Here are a few I wanted to show you.






A little thing

and four softly padded, old quilt pieces made into brooches.

Well, that all from me this evening.
Thanks so much for stopping by. x

Holidays take forever to arrive but go so quickly, and once you get back to normal. Feel like you've never been! It looked lovely though ... Those envelopes are fabulous, original and unique. Very lovely. Have a lovely week, Claire xxx
