cold weather, birds and mail art :o)

I know last week I mentioned that I would post details of the mail art January swap in this post but I still haven't sorted it out yet :(
My daughter has been off 2 days this week because she hurt her knee and I have been having issues with getting the supplies I need too, so the mail art details will have to wait a while i'm afraid....sorry guys, I will post details as soon as I have them though and I will probably make a seperate post about it rather than lump it in with my weekly update.


Now on to this weeks work :o)

My daughter had a letter home from school about a film club after school hours where they will get the chance to watch all kinds of different films from other cultures and times, it got me thinking about black and white films and old black and white photos and then before I could blink this little lady popped onto the canvasboard :o)


I'm a little bit in love with this lady, she looks kinda spooky but nice at the same time, she seemed like she had a lot to say so I called her.....

The Storyteller:

I'm having a bit of a 'thing' for big hair at the moment especially big hair with 'stuff' in it.
first it was little red with the wolfie in her hair and now it's this lady with birdies in her hair, hmmmm I wonder what else I could put in hair ;o)

Well it has finally started to get colder after the big heat wave we had last week, it was suddenly time to get the warmer coats out, what could be lovelier than a big furry collar in cold weather?
This lady does it with style ;o)

 Drama Queen:

Until next time :o)

  11. All of the new paintings are beautiful. I especially love the girl with the birds in her hair. Grogeous! xoxo

  12. Love them all magic as always.... yes did watch downton very touching when Matthew came in and started singing with Mary I think they will end up together somehow carlise will turn out to be a nasty bleep and maybe he will publish the story about her and the Turkish man as for Sybil and Branson she looks tempted to run away with him hes cute in a cocky kind of way ............ its only speculation hope your Daughter gets well very soon xx

  13. I just love the depth and color of your girls. And the hair, to die for. Just beautiful!
    Hope your daughters knee starts feeling better soon and the film class sounds so fun.

  14. You DO have a big hair thing happening! Love them all...such beautiful faces. And the colors are so gorgeous.

  15. the storyteller is amazing; the colors are suited to our beautiful autumn season, and to the mystery of undfolding stories. i love the owl on her shoulder too. i think this one is truly a favourite.
