WOYWW 432

Morning!  You find me half way through my week off, so far I did Kew on Saturday (of course!)  London on Monday and Hampton Court yesterday

this was one of my favourites from Hampton Court with the sun creating a rainbow in the fountain spray.










today I am off to London again and will meet up with my friend Miriam at lunchtime at St Paul's

Not sure what else I'll fit in, Kew probably either Thursday or Friday as I am going to Crafting at Ally Pally on Saturday.
So obviously there has been zero crafting and certainly zero tidying!!

 I did do a little online shopping at the end of last week though!

A gorgeous stencil (Poppy Field) by Donna Downey and some new scribbly stamps by Dina Wakley

Not had chance to use them yet, maybe if it rains later in the week (it was meant to on Monday but it was dry till evening after I got home, but I was too tired by then!)

So I will catch your desks when I get home from London, till then, the link up will be here at Julia's Stamping-Ground for WOYWW

Happy WOYWW. You certainly do lots of lovely trips. Hampton Court has been high on my wish list for years, but still not got there. I have also always wanted to go to Ally Pally, but have to content myself with watching videos on social media and seeing what other bloggers purchase whilst there. At least I save money! I particularly like those new stamps. Ali x #7

Enjoy the rest of the week in London. Sounds like you are having a lovely time. On our next visit we are going to the V&A and always spend a day around Brick Lane and Spitalfields with a visit to Jessie Chorley's lovely shop on Columbia Road

A nice week off, specially for those of us that love all the photos! Am surprised to find sunshine here again this morning, it's much more hit and miss than forecast. I like the stencil very much, will look forward to you being less fresh air bound and see what you get up to with it!

Enjoy your freedom and your trip to London. Wish we were a bit closer - but Shrewsbury is nice for a day out too - lol. x Jo

I've been enjoying travelling with you (in spirit anyway!) as you've been on your travels - hope you have another fun day and manage to dodge the rain. It's sunny here this morning, amazing after last night's howling winds and rain!

Don't worry about the rain coming - we are having so much I am sure it is the quota for the whole of the British Isles that is falling - right now!
Love the new stuff, now about that stencil - hurry and use it please.
Hugs, Neet 10 xx
ps love the rainbow - what a fab photo(grapher)

Sounds like you are definitely making the most of your week off (lovely Hampton Court photo - I go with my niece and nephew when we can, and we love it there). Very tempted by that stencil - looking forward to seeing it in action here - and those stamps look fabulous too.

That's a gorgeous photo of the fountain with the rainbow, Helen - well done! Glad you're getting lots of opportunities to be out and about, and going to all your favourite places. Nice new stash, too! Have fun playing. Thank you for your visit - I laughed, because I didn't think anybody could be doing less art than me at the moment haha! You encourage me!

Happy WOYWW,

Helen, Lovely photo. Hope the weather is nice for when you visit Kew.

You'll have fun with the new stash.

Oh love the stencil, thought it was a cave at first, then maybe trees, who cares it is super either way. Hoping son will master washing his own clothes as not expecting him home too much really as he isn't taking his car. We'll see. So glad for all the possible ways he can contact home at the touch of a screen these days, so much easier than trying to find a public phone box and having the right change or a phone card as was in my day LOL. Thanks for the visit. BJ#8

Marit said...

Wow, you are e busy lady! I hope you find time to create this week... it's raining all day here and these clouds came from over-seas so you might have a rainy day too? Spend it well, and thanks for visiting me earlier, hug from cold, rainy and windy Holland, Marit #25
