Window Painting, Ska and Poppy

25 Jul

1   I spent a lovely morning with friends trawling the charity shops for our 1914 outfits for the event on 3rd August, 100 Days. Between us we found a skirt, two blouses and some belts – nearly there. Afterwards, doing the shopping, I just loved the painting done on the window of our favourite bakery, done by the daughter of the owner. My photo is a bit spoilt by the reflections but I think you can see the beautiful Chinese vase…..I hope so.

2   Driving home, I found myself behind this little car whose name, Ka, had been added to. It made me smile!


3   The Poppy I showed you yesterday has gone already – what ephemeral beauty though the petals on the ground are still lovely.

    Something so sad about that Poppy. But such is life.

      I agree but it gave such pleasure in its brief life. 🙂

      So glad! It was lovely and my photo doesn’t really do it justice. 🙂
