Wow, was I really only away for a week?! It seems like absolutely ages ...... Oooh but I've had a lovely time, and for once, I really chilled out :-) I love going away for a short break but you seem to come home to chaos - no food in the house, an overgrown garden and approximately 57 loads of washing (ok, ok, I exaggerate .... it was only 56 loads of washing hahaha!)
I managed to complete a page in my leather bound journal while I was away. Here's the background before I journaled on it:
And here's a close-up of the doll's head (Rian designs) on a vintage body (Tumblefish Studios). I just love spooky dolls :-)
Now, can I share a few of my holiday pics with you? Can I?!I just love stumbling across random, weathered bits of metal jutting out of stone on the beach:
And who doesn't love shells? My Mum was with us on this holiday and she still collects shells ..... her coat rattled when I picked it up hmmmmmm....
I loved this impossibly green tree in the middle of trees with no leaves still. (Did you know that spring travels north at approx 50 miles a day? I only found that out recently).
One day we went on a sculpture trail and I was very excited to find this - it's a collection of found items (from the beach). It was a random collection of toys, shells, animal skulls and general junk. Fabulous!
Seals, relaxing. Ahhh!
So, do you want to know where I was? Here's a big clue:
All together now ...

What's the story in Balamory,
wouldn't you like to go?'
(Note for my overseas visitors: Balamory is a UK children's TV programme filmed in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull in North West Scotland, so it's very familiar to UK parents!)
Hope you all had a great Easter weekend. Be round to visit you all soon! Byeeeeeeeeeeeee
