No!! we never grow up!!..............


Time to paint............


Time to visit fleamarkets and buy bargins........... (I love Katies little birds)



Time to sew lacy door curtains.....................

I love time off work and home, I love playing, I have swopped my childhood toys for slightly different ones, but I still like to play with the same things...... paints , fabric, spending my pocket money on chocolate and ice lollys ha ha. But I notice now the days are all too short to cram in all of the things I want to do, I bet you are exactly the same, now where did I put my tube of white oil......and my chocolate buttons

Happy playing my lovely friends

I love playtime, but like you say, the days seem to be so short and full of things other than play. I do love watching my youngest daughter when she's holed up in her room completely lost in a moment of play ...
Wishing you lots of fun and playtime

Lynn, I can't believe my luck in your post! I just lost my beloved grandmother back in February and have inherited all her lovely handmade doilies! I've been contemplating what I want to do with them... and now you've shown me! I love love love the curtain with doilies sewn into it! That is exactly what I will do with my grandma's treasures... although I may not actually hang them right in the direct light... maybe someplace where I can see them as a curtain, but not be damaged by direct sunlight. Any suggestions?

I agree completely!

Blessings,

'Happy Playing to you too' sweet Lynn.
Your door curtain is so gorgeous - I just adore it.

(I finally received my copy of 'Somerset Life' this week - sadly after a few complaints of having not been sent one - and was thrilled to see the beautiful pages dedicated to your delicious creations...it was worth the wait!)

Have a lovely day...hope you have lots more playtime soon...

You're so right about time- it's so fleeting. Is it really almost June? It's seems like I just posted about New Year's Eve!

I am glad you are taking time to play and eat chocolate! Looking forward to seeing that finished painting.

Have a great weekend!

Modern Country said...

We all play!! And what a lovely things to play with!! And Lynn, I adore the painting!!!! My gosh, you are the most creative and gifted woman I kow, I love everything you make!! Painted textiles are so pretty, and different from anything else. I love things that are different. I love them because of that :) You see, I could love an ugly flower just beause I feel sorry for it/Her , how mad is that??!! Haha..Who is this Katie?? I mean, you meantioned her when you talked about the birds.

Lynn, I am still laughing, I had to hold in for a couple of minuts, haha..Bring your own chocolate??!! Are you mad?? I have a storage filled with them!! Do you like them dark? I love dark chocolate, and specially from Belgium or France. They are too sweet here. To much sugar for my taste. You know you are always welcome here, I wish I will be able to meet you one time. The garden and the house is beautiful, but it is not completely ours. We are renting 1 floor, but are able to use everything, inside or outside. The house is build between 1924-1926 and its architecture are specially for that particular period. The houses normally does not look that majestetic, but generally all houses looks pretty here. That is what I think. In Holland all houses where builded of cement stones, it could look nice but the new architecture looked not nice at all. To modern for me, to square. I love odd corners, suprising room sizes and that they are different divided. Do you know what I mean ?? Old houses speaks to my heart..

Oh, this looks more like a letter again, haha :))

I hope the sun is shining today so you are able to enjoy a couple of minuts outside in your beautiful Garden. Have you trimmed your rosebush? I hope not :)

Lots and lots of hugs to you!!

Jema Rose said...

Hi Lynn!

I haven´t been able to find a new home yet, but hopefully I will find somewhere else to live soon, at least THIS year..!

My parents will probably buy a house on the countryside, big enough for 2 households. That would be the best solution...

Have a lovely weekend my friend!

Hugs, Jenny

Play time is a time to make a mess and pretend someone else will come and clear it up! I have no trouble getting into it and it can last weeks sometimes! Oddly everyone else in the house starts to join in and before you know it we're living in a space that looks not unlike a nursery after 'cutting and sticking hour'with dirty laundry thrown in! Not sure it's always so productive as yours! Love that door curtain. I've seen doileys used as lamshades too but would worry about them going up in flames! t.x

Primchick said...

cocoa and blankets said...
