I hope you don't think I am bragging, but I just have to show you this.   It's my Artist's Bio Page on the JWD Liscensing page.   It's not completed yet, but I just had to show you it.   Colour me chuffed.

We don't drink or do alcohol but I think this is a brilliant idea from Twenty Two Words.   What a fabulous reuse of an old electrical object.   Very nostalgic.

This Puff Paint Pillow Cover from BHG is really nice.   Can you imagine the possibilities?

And that's it for this week.  I hope you found something useful amongst it all.  ☺

A thought to carry with you through today  . . .

May I a small house 
and a large garden have,
and a few friends,
and many books,
both true, both wise,
and both delightful too!

And I do too!


  1. JWD Please Marie can you maybe e mail this page as I can't read looks great though. I am so so so happy for you at last to get ome recognition for all your hard work. As you well know if I had plenty money my house woudl be FULL of Marie prints,dolls, in fact anything made by Marie....
    I am now going along to see what teh rhubarb spread is all about....I love Lemon and Orange curd so might be similar...
    Hope you have a lovely day. Weather wise looks rather grey down here at the moment. A bit like my heart at the election results...Our poor NHS what ever will happen next...

  2. Good morning Marie. I like the look of your bio. I also like the baskets. Dad's nnursing home is holding a fair in a few weeks and I need to come up with some easy and simple donations that will sell. This basket may be a great idea. Thank you.

  3. I am with you Sybil as far as the election goes. SO saddened by the results. Another five years in which the truly needy and poorest of our society will be demonized and in which our NHS and Military will be further demolished. It is heart breaking. It's sunny here so far, but anything could happen! xoxo

    Thanks Suzan. I am glad that you can use this idea! xoxo

  4. So happy for you!
