WOYWW

 Such loveliness to share on my WOYWW post today!....

On the right you can see the most beautiful and clever card and ATCs sent to Annie and me from Fiona -  "Staring at the sea"
The card has a clever, little moving windmill which is weighted and moves along as you open/close the card. The ATCs have little snowstorm fronts that sprinkle sequins in front of a birthday cake with five candles - brilliant!
Thanks Fiona - I wll pass Annie's back to her once she has moved house - fingers still crossed here! See Annie's blog for latest updates.

The other bits on my table are just the tiny poppy dumfling I found after we had cleared all our stuff from the exhibition and also a little crocheted/lacey flower I am mending. It was attached to a little woolly heart but moths ate the wool!

And - especially to brighten everyone's day.......
This was the most glorious rainbow that appeared late yesterday afternoon.
If you click on it, you might see that not only was it a double rainbow but below the bright one is an extra band of ultra violet.
I think it is amazing. The little hill beneath it is called Roundton and used to be a hill fort in the past. I often wonder what folks made of rainbows before they understood the science behind them.
Maybe, like us, they just know that it means "all will be well".

Have a great week everyone and thanks for calling by.

x Jo

Hi Jo, shame about the woolly heart - those pesky moths! Love the dumfed poppies and the photo of the rainbows. I think you must live in a very lucky part of the country :) Hope you have a great week. Elizabeth x #45

What beautiful cards... so clever and obviously created by a talented artist. It must have been lovely to receive such a gorgeous gift.
I like your dumfed poppies and as for that rainbow... wow just exquisite. You captured it brilliantly. We've had a rainbow yesterday and today too.
Enjoy WOYWW

The rainbow photo is lovely and I was interested when you mentioned about the understanding of rainbows, I have often wondered what stoneage men must have thought they were.
Happy crafting, Angela x #44

Oh that Fiona is clever, and in real life, she's like here crafting, neat and bright and lovely. Such a marvellous pic of the rainbows..talk about right place right time!

Neet said...

The photo is stunning, are you going to use it on your blog header? I love the light that is cast into the field of green, fabulous!
Great dumfing again I see, I really must do some and as I have a tummy upset at the moment maybe that is something I should do.
Hugs, Neet 11 xx

So pleased you like them. I was having a tidy up and there they were, sitting on the dresser, patiently waiting to be posted! That rainbow is amazing! Great capture.
