Wishing ,and Hopeing !

I snagged this graphic this morning ,I dont know who I should credit it to,but its very clever and lovely to look at.Its also a fitting picture to use ,as Maurice fitted the Roman blind in the study ,Its beige cord,and picks out the colour in the rug .Mark and Chrissy came over yesterday ,and Mark gave me the two pics above.As we sat in the sun enjoying a salad roll and coffee for us tea for Maurice (at the exotic pets open day last Sunday )Chrissy asked Maurice could he make a wishing well like the one near the monkey house ,so Maurice suggested Mark took the picture ,to get an idea of size etc...we were laughing yesterday when he said the well part had to be knee high ,their knees all come much higher than mine lol ,any way its not a bad snap (SNAP!those were the days we took them to Boots and waited days to get them back !)and it shows those culottes I bought at Christmas with my vouchers ,remember?The other picture I thought was quite good ,Mark captured Pete Maurice and I,being entertained by a Wit ! member of the family! Talking of pictures did anyone realise I'd added pictures of Ernie ,underneath the picture of St Georges Flag,just that no one commented, I didnt know if you missed them lol ........I'm still not getting journal alerts ,coming through ,so every so often I have to pop back to my entry to see if I have any comments ,its often a nice surprise ,to find more each time I visit ,its a good job I have disregarded my hit counter though, as I'm adding to the visits !  Well I have waffled enough for a Monday ,have a good one every one,and I make no apologies for using this lovely graphic by Dear Donna again I love it! Donna is in my side bar .

   And I've just learned the blind is by Chriss ,CABS Creations ,thank you Chriss xx

I saw Ernie next to the flag Jan, I like wishing wells especially when they've aged, they look pleasant in a garden. Rache

Am getting alerts for you, just i've been to busy to comment...I did see the pics of Ernie he sounds like he was a wonderful man :o) My mum's just got herself a wishing well to put in her garden...I think she actually picked up at a jumble sale or one of the church sales...Hers is about 3 feet high though...I like impromptu pics they always turn out best   Caff xxx
PS: i am still reading even if i don't comment :o)

Wish I could see your pictures. Can see the one with blind but not the photos oh well. Noblody else seems to having this problem it must be AOL again. Glad you had a nice weekend with you visitors LOve Joan.

The pictures are lovely Jan ~ I love the culotte's :-) I'd like a wishing well in my garden........what a lovely idea ! Hope you've had a good day ~ it took me ages to get on here, AOL playing up. Again !!!!!! So, I hope you don't mind me mentioning it, but I too have put an entry on, with pics ~ of my Gran :-)
Lots of Love Debbie ~xxx~
PS I think I've seen the "blind" graphic on Chris' journal, A Day in the Life (in my sidebar). She also goes by the name of CAB's Creations. But I'm not 100% sure Jan ~x~

Hi Jan!  So glad Ernie got his last outing at St George Day!  The Cathedral service was beautiful.  Waffle? Is that the same as Natter? LOL  I think I do a lot of that in my journal.  Funny, cause I'm not really a big talker in person.  I do SMILE a lot. :)

Hi Jan, you look really nice in those pics, very smart in your culottes.  I did see pics of Ernie but I thought I`d seen them at the top of the entry, oh dear I can`t remember now...lol!  Smashing graphic of the blind. :o)

Funnily enough we were looking at Wishing Wells when we went out on Saturday.
Allan would make me one, but I'm not sure....as I don't know where it would go.
One of my friends has one and it looks Fab!

The graphics are impressive, I especially like the blind. The cord roman blind sounds lovely, I haven't seen any like that.  You take a lovely picture, the culottes really suit you, keep waffling!! xx

Just spent a few minutes trying to get onto the comments, forgotten what I was going to say now!! Oh, yeah! I love the blind graphic. Maurice is very clever to be able to attempt to make a wishing well. Have a lovely week. Jeannette xx

wrigleyrachey said...

How do you get such fab graphics....I have to add real pics, but not too computer literate... so never get as many comments! but pretty new to all this.

I'm playing catch up today.  I did see Ernie in our pics.  I have to come back tomorrow when I have more time to read all your newest entries.  LOL...I snagged the blinds.  I received it in an e-mail that was sent nad used it in my journal.  I didn't actually make it.  I wish I could make animations that lovely but not yet.  HUGS  Chris
