Art Card Deck and Inchies

A few months back I made some purple inchies (yes,the one inch squares) and sent them to Patsy in Colorado.

Patsy included two of the inchies in one of her submissions to the Artcard Ideas, and we now know that her card Purple Poppy was one of the winners!

How good is that!

Back yard blitz

Would you believe!
Nearly seven months after contracting to have two such simple structures (as these two patio roofs)erected,they are finally UP!!

These were initially planned to give my husband an outdoor area to be comfortable in;
It's unlikely that he will ever get to enjoy them now.........
I'm so cross,and saddened that bungling ineptness on the part of the contractor has robbed us of enjoyment together.

As you can see a lot of garden decorating still needs to be done,but truly my heart is no longer in the project..............
at least Possum and Cadbury are enjoying the additions.

It seems "forever" since I last blogged an entry in KenMaursCorner...............when our world went topsy-turvy
with a decline in my husband's health: his cancer has returned aggressively and gone secondary to his bones--- a most painful condition.
He has spent two weeks in a medical ward of a Private Hospital,and then was transferred as a "high care patient" to a Nursing Home.
Despite this upheaval in our lives,there is still some idiot going to buy a runner for the dining table,and coming home with a carved timber cat,who assures me there's another four cats of various sizes waiting for me to rescue them.
Then,last Sunday my eldest grand-daughter went with me to the Jetty Markets at Redcliffe.........lovely setting: on the lawns just above the Redcliffe Jetty;beautiful day,gentle sea breeze wafting in; a busker strumming gently on his guitar.........and I found this carving of Buddha's hand!
Kylie invested in two sets of Babushkas..........delightfully painted Russian type 'nesting dolls'.

Apart from these diversions,I have received several postcards which as yet I have not photographed to share with you........but they WILL come!
