with a new cup. And the cup is pretty good sized too.
(I'm using all these French terms because I've been watching a French Movie)
and its smaller, a plate for crème brulee or gauteu l'orange.
Have you seen the work of Danny Mansmith? He is a needle artist; and I think you should see what I received in the mail.....
It came wrapped like a gift from Pan too,
and right now there are some very wonderful bags; one inparticular called Botanical
I wish someone would buy before I do. And you won't believe how reasonable his prices are.
Borderland, by Robert Blythe. Little snippits of gold in the form of a Country Diary and the perfect thing to center oneself before sleep and so full of wisdom it fairly drips on the night table. Next I'm reading his "Wormingford" which is supposed to be his crowning achievement .
Hope you all are having a lovely summerxx

This too, an ode to flowering and blossoming~ I don't think I've painted so much on one piece ever!
but phooey on that,
I couldn't resist such a proud cow and milkmaid.

I came home and started to paint a lady with her prize hollyhock!
This one too. Belle of Portugal.
Here is a close up of Belle. Isn't she something? And grows well in California too.
Do you have a rose that is hardy and a favorite? Would be so interested to hear.
I'm waiting for my new kiln but will have a small listing tomorrow
I've got so many things to fire, I'm out of storage room!
I found this and decide to make another shadow box too. I'll find room........
