We went to our caravan and pottered in the garden, did a bit more painting, had a few walks and found that the Silverdale Art and Craft trail was on, so on Saturday we went across to Arnside for lunch and a wander!
I have admired the work of an artist called Jan Huntley-Peace for a few years now - I now own one of her beautiful ceramic brooches!
Hubby had pointed out her bird brooches and I was just looking but just a little way past the birds were some very eye catching brooches - in fact they had eyes on them - there were four and I had almost made my mind up when Jan pointed out some more on a window sill.
Now, I don't usually like lone eyes in art whether in pairs or singly but this brooch has come home with me (still in it's box)and I absolutely adore it - you will have to see if my journal pages are influenced!
We stopped off for a coffee at Beetham Garden Centre on the way back to the caravan, so it is here I will join Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday.
Hubby had a Hot Chocolate and I had an Americano.
The garden at the caravan is looking OK still....These two plants were buried in the hedge and are thriving now!
The bees are going to love this....
...and the mint that I have let run wild as there were so many bees on it last year.
I was inspired to make a journal page with a tissue handkerchief and some stamped and cut flowers, I put them onto a Brusho background and added just a few more flowers and some text - and a quote that sort of summed it up!
On our way home we drove through Morecambe where the noisy Kite Festival was taking place. We got to see lots of kites though!
Here is one of the bird sculptures that Morecambe is famous for!
We have come back refreshed but we are still busy and the garden problems here continue to be a problem. Hubby is out watering at the moment and someone from management has been gardening all day - it will get sorted soon we hope!
Thanks for looking, Chris
