I am lucky to be granted plenty of leave from work (not enough of course), and I always take it!
My husband doesn’t get so much so this week I have been home alone and I must admit I’ve had a marvelous time.
Monday I didn’t feel too energetic so I did loads of washing and stayed home.
Tuesday I took myself off for a little bus ride to a nearby town and found a few bits of white china and clear glass items in the Charity Shops there. The bus ride took us near the lavender fields filling the bus with the beautiful scent, the people who joined the bus were very quiet and a few fell asleep tee hee….
Wednesday arrived and I took myself off to London to visit the Tate Britain Gallery and then to meet my daughter for her lunch break which was lovely. I left her to return to work and just had to browse in a book shop for a while.
Thursday, I was supposed to meet a friend who sadly had to cancel… so I did a few chores and then took myself off to a local Garden Centre. My husband and I are frequent visitors but I’ve always been rushed through the interesting bits and bob’s “we don’t want to look at this stuff do we??” Well, today I did! Nothing much that I wanted to buy but it was good looking. I took the bus back home and pottered about for a while.
Then I looked at the things I’d bought to paint….
So, here’s the results of my afternoon…
The vinegar jug first:-
Now the glass jug:-
Finally the little teabag dish:-
As you can see I just wrote different words for tea and types of tea. I just used black and red and then added some black dots around the edge.
I deliberately restricted my palette with these, I can sometimes go a tad over the top.
Well, I’m happy with them.
See you soon,
