Photo a week 4

At last a doll is being completed. There she is lying amongst all the clutter and after a lot of arguments seems to have settled down. Lets hope she will be docile till I finish her lol! I made it to our local museum. Couldn't take pictures so I am showing just this bit which I could take. In the back ground you can see in the distance some pottery. They were huge big pots sitting on top of each other designed by an artist who went to China specially to get them made. There were many more in the gallary all around 8 ft tall.
It was quite a nice day the fish were swimming merrily
and so were these two birds. I took this from a wooden bridge and everytime a child went over it he stomped hard lol and the bridge shook so the photo is a bit blurred.

Photo a week 3

Today I decided to take a long walk and also visit our local arts museum which I am ashamed to say I have not done yet. I also took my camera along with me to see if I could get some pictures. Unfortunately the museum was closed and I couldn't get inspired enough to find anything interesting on the way. I came home and wandered into my garden. I came upon this nest. I think the birdie must have started nesting before we had our heavy rains. Poor dear has I think lost the nest it is all soggy now. I don't remember seeing that nest there before last year. There were signs of coming of spring everywhere......
This will open into a beautiful pink Camellia soon.
Another shrub full of buds
The sun was playing hide and seek when I managed to just about catch it. It was about 12.30 this afternoon but it looks as though it is in the evening.

Photo a week 2

Now that the snow has gone and I am back home and feeling better I thought I would start putting my doll together now that I had found a solution to do it. Got my DH to bring the machine up to his study since my craft room is still not ready. Dusted it and got it ready to load. Guess what..... I can't find the lead for the machine. Soooo I take a deep breath and relax. Perhaps I will muster up some energy soon to go down and search for the electric cable and the foot. Hope you all are having a lovely day.

Picture a week challenge

Since I am not able to create anything at the moment I thought I would join Picture a week challenge that Linda is running in her blog. So here are mine for the first week. Dusting of sugar Sugar coated branches Pearl encrusted plants A frozen bird bath brrr.. it was cold. Then came the snow! Sorry I know you all have had snow pictures up to your necks but I had to show mine too lol! Last night after we returned from a friend's house slipping and sliding I saw the lamp post outside the house and it looked beautiful. Picture is not great. This morning the same lamp post. Snow is still falling
