Post and a Monster

~

I have been remiss in not sharing with you the beautiful little brooch I succumbed to on Jackie's blog last week. They sold like hot cakes so I was lucky to have one and it is now gracing the front of my handbag. Jackie's work is beautiful and her blog is well worth a look if you don't know her already.

I'm not sure where the time is going at the moment but the days seem to be getting shorter instead of longer. I finally got round to reproofing my jacket today ready for our upcoming trip to Wales. The can said 'use in a well venilated space'. I tried working in the conservatory with the door open but after the first spray I realised I wasn't going to survive the experience! Drastic measures were called for

Scary isn't it? The masks as big as me!!! Who said Darth Vader?!!!! It's really weird cos I covered my nose up but it made everything sound funny. The answer to that is not to talk to yourself all the time! It was hot too! But at least I got my coat treated without gassing myself lol!

My of my, that is one attractive look you've got there!! Still better that than spending the next 6 months coughing up waterproofing spray. The skies are wonderful aren't they? I just wish the winds would drop a bit so that we can watch the TV (reception is so poor where we are, we can't get digital properly yet)

Okay, you've convinced me. I need to get one before I do any dangerous spraying!!! If you can do it so can I!!!!

I've got one of those! I think perhaps you look better in yours than I do in mine...they do work, though

Thank you for posting that nice bit!
The mask was a bit of a shock!

Sorry, Julie, I had to laugh but I know I would have looked a whole lot worse :o) - I'm sure it was worth it! Did you use the coat?

Jackie's brooch is gorgeous, you made a good choice!
