  1-5. Japanese Festival at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. 6. Seasonal ‘Count Orlok’ pumpkin beer at Urban Chestnut on the way home. 7&8. Making some pages with vintage National Geographic images and some ‘moons’ I have been experimenting with. I try and mess about with some form of art every day, keeps me on an even keel!Do you have something you have to do on a regular basis or you miss it? Happy Monday x

  1. Eclipse Party planning with a vintage library sign! 2. My porch table in the summer is covered in cacti and succulents. 3. The tomatoes in my garden have been no great shakes this year but the ones I have picked have been delicious. 4. I like to see under mushrooms. 5. YMCA book fair, lots of bargains to be had! 6. Cabbages at the international market. 7. My haul from the book fair. Some will stay as they are and some will become sketchbooks.  I like the small but fat language books and flash cards are always a winner for me. I hope you had a fabulous week. Happy Tuesday x

1. My little garden is struggling this year, I am not sure whether it is a lack of rain or a lack of gardening skills, but this is one of the little sunflowers that made it. 2&3. One of the huge trees at the park keeled over this week, it wasn’t in a storm or anything but it was on the ground when I walked the dog on Monday. 4&5. Once the tree had been cut down, the trunk circles were a work of art. I think one looks like a sad raccoon face! 6. This drink machine doesn’t work, I wonder how long these drinks have been in it? I suppose pop doesn’t go off! Happy Monday x

I messed about with ink and ornamental grass for one of my 100 day project cards. 5. I am painting a watercolour flower a day along with Creative Bug this month. Happy Monday x

1. Tiles, shards and a marble found in the woods. 2. Pizza rolls before looking a bit of a mess! 3. Pizza rolls cooked still looking a mess!!  Tasty though. 4. We found an ‘F’ which I think was an ‘E’ in a former life. 5. Funghi which looks like plates! 6. I pass this building every so often and it looks like it has no entrance or exit, no signs and no windows.  I wonder what it is/was. I am sure it has a door somewhere….. Happy Monday x

Fancy a seat at the dock!  This was taken at Wellfleet harbor, I hope there are cold drinks in that cooler. I liked the colours of this boat. Baker’s hardware store in South Chatham, opened in 1950 and not much has changed!  It is a great shop, I bought two paintbrushes and a Stanley knife from there. The Goose Pond (minus any geese!) at Wellfleet Wildlife Sanctuary.  It was a cold windy day but we braved the trails anyway, oh and it was raining!!  We still enjoyed the walks though. My boardwalk obsession continues, this one leading to the beach at Wellfleet Wildlife Sanctuary. An old mailbox in Chatham. Playing silly buggers with filters at Chatham Lighthouse beach view-finders!  I used Hipstamatic for this photo. Sunset at Rock Harbor, Orleans. Red river beach in Harwichport has all the shells in the world, if you are looking for slipper shells you are in the right place here, there are carpets of them! Red river beach also has the whitest sand I have seen on Cape Cod. …
