Obsessions....

    Starting to paint a new face today I like her already, she is peaceful and gentle, I have to be careful not to become to obsessed when I am painting or I forget to eat, drink, and cook tea..this does not make me popular at home with a hungry husband .... 
I was playing about drawing and painting buttons the other day,those to the right of my painting the laundry ones, I adore the mix of fabric and metal I am pretty obsessed with them too...(oh dear)
At the weekend we went to a fabulous salvage and home-ware  Fair at Ripley there were lots of gorgeous stalls selling wonderful French delights....furniture fabrics, pictures,another obsession..



do you have any obsessions or is it just me ?

It was French heaven at Ripley and so sorry I missed you!
I bought a linen sheet from that very same stall... Off that same daybed...heavy weight, centre seam and red initials. They had some nice things and sensibly priced too.
Love your new paintings, fab as always x

I love your painting, is it anyone in particular Lynn? I had spotted the button painting. Talking of obsessions, I have many including, lace, linen, buttons, books, photographs, I could go on.... and on.....

I agree, your new portrait is serene.
Looks like you had the pleasure of perusing plenty of goodies. Did you have trouble carrying all the stuff you bought? Ha!

Obsessions- yes I have plenty. Vintage rhinestone pins, teacups, linens, cats, and I have far too many lamps for the small space I live in.

Fallen in love with your beautiful paintings, Lynn....they are so special..Ooh dear an obsession with me is 'Rose's on tea cups and roses on vases..Pink always, pink..any thing old,with a nudge to being French..always the prettiest of tea pots...far to many! Have a day as lovely as you..

Love those fabrics! I do obsess over pretty fabrics I have an old Sanderson fabric book from when I worked in a furniture store and I so need to start making things with it...its just finding the time!

Lots of obsessions! Currently, my patchwork quilt and gathering fabrics for it, vintage chocolate and patisserie moulds (I really don't know where that one came from), and old wooden horses on wheels (5 at the last count). Your painting of the woman is beautiful.x

I am obsessively collecting images on Pinterest. I wonder how many I NEED and if I'll ever stop!!
Darling Lynn, so sorry for my absence of late, I see I have some posts to catch up on. Love your new face and your sweet little button painting.
I wish I had been to Ripley I saw it on Julie's blog too, you lucky buggars!
Thanks for your kind words. I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow, love Linda xx
