A favourite rose from my garden

This yellow rose from my garden has the strongest sweetest scent of all my roses. I love to stick my nose right inside it! It's positioned not far from my front door so it cheers me every time I pass

On my desk - wild flowers

I've got a very busy week coming up - I've enrolled for the "Textured Surfaces Workshop" with Carol McFee and Lynda Monk and I'm very excited about starting a new sketchbook of samples

I will also be blogging a new project here

I hope you all have a very good week and thank you so much for visiting and for all your uplifting comments ♥

My favorite thing to do in the morning when I get home from bootcamp is to take a hot shower, make a pot of hazlenut coffee, and visit YOU. I too love yellow roses!

Is the class online?

daisy said...

Oh such sunny & cheery colours! Another gorgeous mosaic. Have a great & exciting week xx


Hi Cathie, yes the class is online. Here is the link:

I've never tried hazelnut coffee, but I drink a lot of chamomile tea!

Thanks Daisy, always lovely to hear from you!

Yellow evokes such passion in people, doesn't it? It invites us to look up. Your rose IS cheerful and LOVELY! Your blog holds good things.

oh~!~i adore the wildflowers from your desk shots~!!~ they almost look as if they've been painted on a watercolor paper . . . but i think that's actually texture from a wall(?) . . .

thank you for your uplifting visits to my blog and for making yours such a treat to enjoy whenever i get the chance, which isn't often enough~!!~

Yellow is such an underused colour these days - thanks for pointing me in the direction of the Flickr me bob, i'll have a go. PS have you noticed your beaches are a bit short of sand? We are still finding it in every pocket, trouser or shorts turnups, bags etc It makes me want to be in St Ives.

Ruth said...

Oh - you'll have such fun with Lynda and Carol. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a kind comment.

Looks as though you're going to be busy. The yellow mosaic and sketchbook page are beautiful. I particularly like the top of the page in your sketchbook, the yarns and stitch look very effective together. Yellow is not an easy colour to work with but your explorations look inspiring.

I'll be interested to hear how you get on with Lynda and Carol's course. I've seen some people's work from it and it looks exciting.

Love your yellow mosiac! So cheerful.

I can almost smell your rose from here...... I love the old fashioned roses..... did you collect the petals and make perfume when you were little? I did!

Enjoy your workshop - sounds like you are going to have fun.

Ps Orange lichen probably does NOT exist! It did sort of look orange though.....

Have a lovely, lovely week.


Cathy said...

your yellow post is a real treat, yellow roses were my late grandmother's favourites, I hope you have a bright, creative and sunny week x

Carrie said...

Thanks for dropping by Carolyn. I too hope to enjoy the workshops and learn lots from it. I love your sketchbook page of samples, very inspiring.

Lovely yellows Carolyn, the beautiful, fragrant rose and the wild flowers. I especially like the plantain in the last pic.

Thanks for the link to Flikr toys - at last I'll be able to produce a mosaic (maybe)!


Pom Pom said...

Sometimes I visit your blog just to get a look at that cute crow! Funny, huh?

Julia said...

hello :)

Your mosaic is so cheerful and inspiring, I just spent quite a while gazing at all the different little squares.

And then I began browsing a few more of your recent posts and found your little inchies...Im overwhelmed by the detail that you put into them, Im especially taken by the little houses you made - wonderful!

Love Julia xxx
