Flower Diary, the beginning...

Hello friends!

This was supposed to go live on Wednesday evening but at the last minute I decided to make changes!  My inspiration for this was two of my favourite books; The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady and The Country Flowers of a Victorian Lady.  They are full of beautiful paintings and notes.  I really wanted to have a go at making my own but I can't draw or paint but I do have a camera so I decided I would capture my own style of these books in a completely digital way.

I started with the Poppy as it's my mum's favourite flower so I'm always on the look out for these. This single flower appeared in our garden rather randomly last year and the group of poppies I spotted on a walk with my dog, Fergus.

Creative Blessings.  x

Weekend Walks

We had a very busy Saturday, firstly Team Bride tried on their bridesmaid dresses, fortunately mine needs no alterations.  I have my shoes, wrap and stockings, I just need to squeeze in a hair cut and a visit to the brow bar.  The plans for the Crafternoon Hen Party are coming together, which is less than a month away and the Wedding is about 6 weeks away.  This week I need to crack on with the hen invites.

Next was a trip to the dog home boarding carer who will be dog sitting Fergus on the day of the Wedding.  We were very happy with the place and the lady was lovely, she has her own dog and only ever dog sits for a maximum of 4 dogs.  It really is a home from home.  My parents's dog, Buddy is also going there so Fergus will have a friend he knows.  There were three dogs on Saturday and Fergus was slightly over-whelmed, hiding behind us on the sofa but he soon made friends with other dog, especially the Pug.

We stopped on the way home to eat our picnic and this is where I took this photo of Fergus.  We also went for a wander around Ely, it's a pretty little market town not far from us.

Sunday was a quiet day although I had the migraine from hell so was quite out of sorts, so no crafting just lots of dozing! Difficult for someone who is constantly busy, I don't really do resting.

I hope your Monday has been a good one and I will see you Wednesday.  Creative Blessings.  x
