GREEN and Bits n Pieces

The world prompt over at the Our Beautiful World blog this week is GREEN. Yesterday was a beautiful day, blue skies, sunshine, and the new growth on the bushes and trees was the most delightful fresh green. But I didn't have my camera with me on our short walk in the Firehills. Today I was prepared, but it was overcast and grey and not right for pics. Sod's law, lol. So I decided to go with a photo I took a few years ago of a brocante find in France -


I couldn't bear to part with this beautiful vase, so it is still gracing the kitchen window sill in our cottage in France.

I keep making simple little tags to go with customer orders, it gives me much pleasure. Here are a few of them -







And a couple of tag which have gone to friends -






Thank you for all the lovely messages re my poorly back. It is much better, I can walk and sit again, woohoo. 

Also, a big hello and welcome hug to the lovely people who have recently become followers and/or left comments. It is such a shame that this - noreply-comment@blogger.comcomes up so often and prevents me from saying hello personally. Please consider changing it, it is so nice to communicate with fellow bloggers.

The vase is a pretty one, the cottage is a great place for it!
Love the tags, you are so creative! Such a variety of thoughts, they are all wonderful. So glad hour back is feeling somewhat better. Mine is hurting from painting, but it is good exercise for me since i have been so ill and not doin much. I think I need to get a dog to go walk with!!!! The cats just dont like to go for walks! I have a question for you...Pink or lavender/purple??? Enquiring minds want to know!
Hugs,
Betsy
