Week O'Nan - Day 1

I am so glad that there are many lovely ladies joining in with the week of Nana/Granny goodness. Amity Ville has some great ideas.

Pottery painting I think may have been one of her first recreational crafts, now know creating something she didn't really need. I have to admit these are some of my favourites as I have NO artistic talent what-so-ever so when people can paint/draw I always find it fascinating. I think it is one of the only skills that you can't learn. I had these sitting in the cupboard too afraid to use them until I figured out that seeing them everyday brings me much more joy than keeping them safe.

I have actually finished some sewing too, finally. I so love this combination. Aunty Cookie brilliance with a little linen, perfect for summer.

I love the plates. My nan did china painting too. I will have to have a look and see what I can find. I will do a week-o-nanna post soon.

I adore the pinnie!

That dress is fantastic - that's your "artistic talent" right there Cindy - taking all of those elements and transforming them into something spectacular like that... I can't do that with a sewing machine, no way!
Oh, love the plates! I'll try to do something nanna-ish soon and let you know. Maybe I could take a nap? That's a Nanna thing to do :)
