White on White and Spots

Just a quick post to show you the tag I made for this week's WHITE ON WHITE theme over at the Tag Tuesday blog, and the photo I took for the word prompt SPOTS over at the Our Beautiful World blog -






For the SPOTS, I took a photograph of a foxglove, which had just sprung up on our little lane a couple of days ago. The inside of a foxglove is just gorgeous -



I wish I had a proper macro lens to take close ups.

I still feel all deflated over this wretched Etsy testing/experimenting business. How many times a day am I breaking the (EU) law when customers can't see my shipping charges upfront?  I don't feel like I should be listing anything right now until that issue is cleared up. BUT........... that hasn't stopped me from going to a brocante this morning! Found a beautiful vintage hand crocheted huge bedspread, gorgeous monogrammed pillow cases, 50s school rubber stamps with animals and leaves and a big lot of gorgeous old little baking tins/tart tins, some of them shapes I had never come across. That cheered me up a little.

Veggie garden is coming along nicely now that we have had a bit of sunshine and warmth. I love looking at the little plants, lol. Have to check every morning and every evening to see whether they have grown, tehehehe.
