...and from foreign parts no less! I've been meaning to post about this lovely little package that arrived last week from Claire over at The Fairy Tale Cupboard, but me being me I hadn't got around to it. A beautiful selection of Fairy Tale postcards, 2 of each! And an extra special one from Oona Patterson, who wrote Ream, the lovely book I won in Claire's competition. I hope you can tell, that the tiny figure of Ream herself has been cut out of the postcard (that's my finger you can see through it)! There was much amazement from young and old in the Mermaid household as to the detail.
And what should arrive today but this lovely parcel...my prize!
My first painting as a 'professional' artist...and my mantra!
The kettle is on, please do come in, up the winding stair and if you're tall, you might have to duck at the top to avoid the ridge beam! Feel free to browse amongst my bits and bobs, and apologies if you have to blow dust off a few things! But please remember, the written musings and painted pictures here (unless otherwise credited) are my work and therefore copyright.
To my fellow wanderers and footloose followers-an update!
If you like what you see and read in this little corner of the giant attic in the sky that is the world wide web, please consider 'following' my progress as I wander along, getting distracted by butterflies and interesting cloud shapes as I go.
