something nice for the wall...

I have nothing new of my own to show (having been ill and mired in tediousness) but while trying to set up my "blogs'u' like" section I've been going through my (large and very rambling) bookmark list and came across a link to this print which I bought from etsy way back in June for Ms E Reva's 5th birthday. Something I have to tell you about that daughter of mine is that she is a self-confessed superhero whose greatest aim in life is to resist sleep at every given moment of night and day. Indeed the recollection which gives her most pleasure is of the camping trip we did last summer one night of which she managed to sleep not one wink. Oh yes, she rejoices in the telling of the tale every single time (I still claim she did drift off for, oooh, ten minutes or so around 4.30am but she disputes this hotly). Anyway, this print sits by her bed in order to remind her that even superheroes have to sleep, sometimes...


I also fell in love with this one which now resides in my own bedroom to remind me that, well, am not quite sure what it is reminding me but I do love it (maybe that sometimes you can be yellow and sometimes grey, sometimes float in one direction, sometimes another? sums me up pretty perfectly actually)

I notice that AshleyG has a seasonal print this month on finding the perfect tree...

which is kind of appropriate as yesterday evening we did just that and the aforementioned Ms Reva declared this morning that she thought we had "made a very good choice". Phew!

And the final image for today is one that I have just seen on Ashley's etsy shop and which I like a lot, must be the scarves calling to me...reminding me of those promises I made to knit scarves for the ladies of the bog...


back soon with something from my own hands I hope...though I have the "craft'n'movie" extravaganza looming tomorrow afternoon so it may be some time before I am fit to communicate in anything but a low groan again...

(ps all photos belong to Ashley - not sure what blogging etiquette is here as I haven't been doing this for long but I HOPE she wouldn't mind)

UPDATE - I emailed Ashley to check it was ok and she said yes. Well, what she actually said was "And thank you so much for sharing my work! I have no problem at all with you sharing photos of my work! Wishing you a wonderful holiday season : )

Truly, I don't know the etiquette either. I know some people may mind but I certainly don't. If you're ever worried about it I think you did the exact right thing."

Ashley had trouble leaving an anonymous (ie non Google account holder) comment on here which seems a shame - I've checked my settings and they look ok. If anyone knows anything about this that I don't let me know (assuming you are a google account holder and so can communicate with me that is!!!)

anyway, enjoy Ashley's great prints...
