I made a trip to our local Hobbycraft the other day because I am missing all my arty' equipment.......it's safely packed up somewhere in East Sussex! Anyway, I bought a cheap box of paints, some coloured pencils and pens...so had to get work the minute I got back home. I know that fruit in a bowl isn't very original...but I couldn't resist painting my new red bowl (which, by the way, I have now lost.....I think my friend has put it away somewhere and as she is still sleeping sweetly I have had to use a white bowl for my porridge.) The snow seems to have now ended and the sun is beginning to shine - so maybe today's dog walk will be slightly less treacherous!! By the way - last night we bought a fabulous beaten up, old 3-seater leather sofa. We are absolutely thrilled with it - it was a real bargain and will look great in (fingers crossed) our new house!
