Oh, I even had a go at using Parisian Essence and dyed the fabric. (not very clear in the photo).
Yesterday I had a beautiful day out with a couple of close friends. We went up to the Dandenong Ranges and visited Sassafras and Olinda. While in Sassafras we had to visit the famous Miss Marples Tea Room and enjoy a scrummy lunch!
Shh, I won't be telling you all how naughty I was, I just about had to be rolled back to the car.
Here are two of my dear friends Heather and Syndi.
We went into every shop in this quaint little town and I purchased a few goodies.
This shop is absolutely gorgeous.Tea Leaves I purchased a tea pot, cups and of course some China Rose Tea leaves that I shared with my students this morning. I've now decided I should collect these cute little tea pots!
While I was sitting down having a rest nearing the end of the day, I noticed these Buddha's. Of course I took this photo thinking of a couple of blogging buddies of mine-Serena and Lee.
Lee"ArtfulLee Designed" has just recently got back into blogging. She's a very talented artist. If you have a moment pop in and say hello to Lee. I know she'll appreciate your comments on her beautiful art work.
Ah, Phew, that was a long post. A couple of new pieces for OPAM as well.
Happy Painting, Stitching, Creating until next time. Hugs, Anna
I am a happily married mother of two teenage sons. I have been painting since 1999 and have a home studio where I teach. I recently discovered the joys of patchwork and quilting and now spend some of my creative time sewing.
