Hair today ....

Well it comes to something when you spend most if your day sat in the hairdressers. Luckily for me as I hate the whole shenanigans so much I now go with my best bud Elsie,so we cause chaos and laughter with well just being us really! We thought we should have our own tv show to make the world laugh, she calls me Floss so it would be Elsie and Florence with special guest Ethel. Ok ok yes too much sun and hairspray. Back to the studio tomorrow!  Ethel was not impressed as she didn't get to have her barnet sorted.

Me & My Shadow

Sunday at the park, beautiful weather happy people milling around.......me and my shadow for company!

The current project commisioned seat cushions.

Ethels debut B&W photoshoot....poser!

The Park....its funny how some images capture the 1970s vibe, of old local picture postcards.

So as usual I had been happily snapping away with all the good intenions to upload my pictures to what appears to be this on line journal of mine, and in usual Blossom stylee I had not managed to do that. But this morning I have awoken with a slight spring in my step. I feel slightly like a butterfly must feel as it leaves its cocoon for the first time......happy.......a bit emotional?.....hopeful and overexcited ........................oh dear!!


Tuesday antics

Turning a whopping courgette into two chocolate cakes and a batch of feta cheese muffins.

Cleaning Bob

Time to chill at yoga.

I thank you and goodnight. X


My new approach to Sunday

Park, sun and a good book. The end x


Gran inspired a floral

A visit to gran and a cheeky little photo of her cut flowers and hey presto I was back home (ok not like Harry Potter magic style) but none the less I returned to my workspace and it has resulted in me creating a little vintage looking ribbon rose. Oooh coralicious! Enjoy xx


DJ Fresh & Sian Evans Louder BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge July 2011

This song means a lot to me at the moment especially with all the changes I am experiencing; for the greater good. I love hearing it on the radio, this accoustic version I heard on radio 1 on Friday. Enjoy your weekend all. X

Baking your troubles away

Baking! Chocolate cupcakes....is the answer to not worrying about anything else in life. It certainly took my mind off things that are going round my head. There were about 4 other things to do of slightly more importance but hey ho baking won the day. Sadly I only had 11 maltesers to adorn the top of these chocolate mountains (due to a previous cinema trip....no not gone mad eating half a small packet it was a grab bag). I had just enough mixture for 11 cakes oddly. But then there was the accident..... I dropped one and had to sample it; ooops! Well that was the second stroke of luck as only 10 would fit in the cake tin.


Chicken or the Egg?

Something to contemplate whilst eating scrambled egg on toast I feel.
Have a fun Sunday, mine has been lazy so far watching 'Dear John' on DVD. Visiting my mom, now I'm going to tackle some serious making.


Poppytastic 2

More poppies to peruse.

Sharing the love...

Ok so really a treat is not on the agenda especially after a trip to IKEA ended this week with purchasing two bars of their cheap but very cheerful hazelnut chocolate. I bought one for myself and one for my best bud Elsie. I'm ashamed to say (and have already confessed) that I ate both. It doesn't end there they went in one sitting! Crikey chief.....I couldn't help it they were calling to me. So actually this love bar is rather tame in comparison at least it has seeds on right?


Number crunching

30, 187 and 8.

30 lengths of the pool swam tonight.

Sadly defeated by the intake of 187 calories in my packet of maltesers (lighter than ordinary chocolate apparently).

8 rows in the cable pattern I'm knitting on 5 needles oh wish me luck with that one.



After my inspirational day yesterday I have decided to start drawing and painting again. Here are the fruits of my labour so far. Wahey have a good week; now its time for knitting with 5 double pointed pins another new skill to master so far so good. Enjoy your week amigos.


Posting bug?

is how I would describe how I feel right now. After my visit to the big smoke I am being very productive. A glass of Rose and one 'small' bag of maltesers (steady on..... a girl can have too much fun) I have started sketching and have a lil vision of things I'd like to do after todays inspirational day. More pics to follow but had to share my Islington antiques market orange glass bowl, which contrasted beautifully with the duck egg alpaca yarn courtesy of Loop. Love the sweets!, too pretty to eat though. So that's it a three post Saturday, quite tired may have to venture to bed soon after my 16hr day.
Enjoy all x
