                                     'Sacred Heart'

I was commissioned by Nicola of Murano Silver to make one of my dreamboxes and I loved the image so much I've used it again to make a collage. (Image from Izabella's collage sheet 'Poison') 


I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows,
   Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
    Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
   With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
   There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
   Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight;
  And there the snake throws her enamell'd skin,
  Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in.

Shame On Me!

It recently occurred to me that I have never done a blog giveaway despite having taken part in many and winning 3!

So I shall reciprocate and my next post will give you all the chance to enter and win.....something!  I'm not yet sure what you'll win; I'm still working on that. 

I like the photo caption competition like I won (ha ha!) on Tristan's blog Enchanted Revelries, so I think it will be that format. So keep your eyes peeled, your ears keen and minds sharp. Back soon. x

The Floozies Are Off On A Jolly!

Bonjour my blogging buddies.

Well, times have been a little hard and dreary lately,

I know, I'll get in touch with Rainey; she'll know what to do!

Jo - "Hello. Rainey, I'm a bit cheesed off at the moment. What can I do to cheer myself up?"

Rainey - "Hello Jo, I know the very thing. Let's go to Dinan in France. It'll be great!"

Jo - "That sounds wonderful, but what about the children?"

Rainey - "Ah, hush now. Haven't they got their daddies to look after them?     
Jo - "Yes, you're right. Ah, I can see it now......... in little french cafes

.....a beer or two..
...maybe a little.....

Rainey - " No Jo, there'll be none of that!"

Jo - " Ahem.....No, no, of course not, I was only joking"....

Rainey - "let's not forget treasure hunting...

...and a few glasses of red wine of course...."

"Hurrah! France here we come!"

Jo - "...and no Rainey, you can't bring your bike"

"Quick, it's Jim and Simon; they're on to us! Pedal faster!"
