I hadn't played over at the Our Beautiful World blog for some time, it seems I only get the camera out for things other than Etsy shop goods and tags when we are in France. This week's theme is ' what light through yonder window breaks ', and yes, of course, it was taken in France, lol, through the kitchen window in our cottage -
A storm was approaching and the sky was turning a very dark grey in the distance, yet our little cottage was still bathed in glorious sunshine. I love that kind of light, just before a storm breaks.
Next, this week's tag for the current challenge over at the Tag Tuesday blog. The theme is TEXT. I think I must have had Spring on my brain, because I used four different Distress Inks in pretty pastel Spring colours for the blended background. I made a stencil with different sized holes and used my favourite metallic ink ( copper ) on it and then printed some handwriting text in black ink here and there. The focal point of the tag is a torn piece of TEXT from a wonderful ( but sadly broken) 1713 Italian book. I edged the tag with a gold ink marker and added a seam binding ribbon-
And last but not least, a few photos, taken recently with my phone,whilst out walking with the dogs in the Firehills, our Country Park right on the cliff tops -
Occasionally, these beautiful shaggy ponies are right up on the cliff tops as well. Hector couldn't care less, lol, but they drive Poppy nuts, so she has to go back on the lead when we get close. I do love these beautiful, their rough coats, their beautiful colour and their big soulful eyes. They are so friendly as well and don't mind the dogs one bit.
Enjoy life, stay warm if it is still winter for you, and stay cool if summer temps are soaring where you are. Toodlepip xxx
