Before I show you what I have come up with for this week's Tag Tuesday challenge, or post pictures of some lovely whities for White Wednesday, I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to two very special people.
When I visited Cindy's Shabby Chic Girls' Club blog yesterday, I saw that I was one of her featured artists. I was thrilled to bits of course. Cindy is an amazing person. I don't think I have ever come across anybody like her, she has energy enough for ten, she is a fantastic artist, a published author, and one of the kindest, encouraging and supportive people you could ever meet. If you haven't met her yet, do visit her at her blogs, you will be amazed at the creativity of this lovely lady -
Thank you, Cindy, for being such a wonderful friend to so many people.
The second person I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to is Suzy, of SuzyQ' Threadworks. It was such an honour to be featured on the same blog post as Suzy, because she really is an amazing artist. Her fabric books, journals and collages are drop dead gorgeous and I absolutely adore her work. It is very different from mine, most often she uses incredible jewel colours in her work, and the richness of her pieces is just stunning. Have a look for yourselves and be prepared for a serious drool session -
This wonderful woman wrote such lovely things about me in her Thank You Cindy post, I still haven't stopped smiling. Thank you so much, Suzy, you have no idea how much such kind words from an artist like you mean to me.
And now on to the TAG TUESDAY challenge at the Blog Challenge Garden. The theme for this week is TATTERED ROMANCE, and for about 10 seconds I though, omg, this is going to be a really difficult one. But then I remembered a post card I had bought in France, which I knew would be just perfect to show the emotions of a romance in tatters. The post card had really touched my heart when I found it. It is from the 1st World War, when so many young women saw their beloved sweethearts going off to war and were left broken hearted, their romances shattered and in tatters. The background is the actual writing on the back of the card, and because it is quite a sombre tag, just this once there is no bling -
For WHITE WEDNESDAY, I have picked a few more pictures of this summer's vide greniers finds. yep, I'm afraid it is more lace, lol -
If you go to the wonderful FADED CHARM blog, you can visit many fabulous blogs showing off their lovely whites.
I hope you are having a good day wherever you are. Toodlepip xxx
