Just quickly

Some of my lovely daughter's work

My holiday in Cornwall

Love Cornwall such an inspiring place, especially the rugged coastline around Tintagel. Best know For King Arther's Castle, but if you get off the tourist trek and head out of town you'll come to St. Nectan's Glen, which takes you through a beautiful woodland and down to a stunning waterfall. The waterfall cascades down through a perfectly formed natural hole. It's an amazing sight and is surrounded by shrines created by visitors who have left messages to their lost love ones.

Just 2 miles outside Tintagel is Boscastle a quaint harbour village and home to the witchcraft museum. This place is packed full of amazing objects such has poppets, amulets,carvings, paintings and amazing biographies and photos of practicing witches. Folk lore, spells and charms are all there and it's the kind of place that you need a good few hours spare to soak up all the detail.

Lastly is the amazing Eden project where you can experience rainforests and desserts, plus learn about plants, food and all things eco friendly. A great place for kids too, loads of activities, crafts and performance too.

Fashion photography

Love this circus meets steampunk look from fashion photographer Palo Peregin

Time Travelers Team ACT no.3

Final one from the lovely "Mad" of MadScientistsDesigns on etsy, who not only creates cool steampunk jewellery, but also is an active member of artists for animals on etsy and one of our team leaders for the TTT.

Hopefully we can all do this again, it's been fun and a great way to find out about each other.

Time Travelers team ATC Swop

That stands for artist trading cards. The ttt have been busy swopping cards and one of mine was from the wonderful Gabi from poppydreamz, take a browse through her amazing shop.

I wonder if she has a fleet of fuel injected carrier pigeons, because she posted these gorgeous cards on the 1st Aug and I got them here in the UK today, 5th Aug!
Here they are:

I love the colours and the intricate designs.

Look what I've been growing

These lovely orchids have been on my window sill, here in the uk, for 3 years and this is their best display yet. It was a bit of a personal challenge to grow these, I'm great with outdoor plants in fact it's my area of expertise, but indoors is a bit hit and miss. These were rescued from the B&Q discount shelf for £3.00 and have flowered twice a year since I've had them. Best bargain ever!
