This vase - inherited from my Mother-in-law, is one of my favourite possessions - it looks so old-fashioned. Is it the colour, pattern or shape that makes it seem from another era?

It makes him all itchy but I can't stop him. In fact it looks like a nice thing to do - I may give it a try. I'm still neglecting my blog at the moment - sorry - lots of work and the invalid is still needing help, although I'm glad to say he can get his socks on by himself now and he is improving!
I find it very hard to be creative for myself when I have a lot of work on, in the evenings I just crash out with a large glass of wine.
PS. The presentation went well - it just has to be passed by one more person now - so fingers crossed.

At the beginning of the Summer I participated in Kelly Light's great idea to raise money to help creatures affected by the Gulf oil spill. Kelly has now raised over $10,000 with the help of hundreds of artists. These are the wonderful artworks that I received in the post over the past few weeks. If you haven't done so already, please visit their websites: jackie, harsha and howard.
Also the Ripple website is still going strong!
