Back to the Craft Barn with Christmas Table ideas.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi everyone just here to let you know this is another project for the Craft Barn and it's live now.

I've been working with Elena Zinski stamps and this is what I've made. If you would like to see how I made them then pop over to The Craft Barn for full details.


I would love to hear what you think about my project and any comments will be gratefully received.
 
Look forward to seeing you at The Craft Barn.
 
Happy crafting,

Friday Fun Day.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

As mentioned last week, I have found some interesting old photographs relating to our lovely park and here are just a few.

The first group of photographs taken in 1957-1958 and the same two ladies just a bit older in 2013. You can see the house in the background before it was demolished.

 
A later photograph shows the house has gone but the glasshouse is still there.

 
 And a photograph this year showing how the crazy paving has been replaced.


 The house as it would have looked.
Sorry about the quality of the photograph.
I believe this was sometime in the 1800s.
 




Interesting collection of photographs I'm sure you'll agree and they certainly made me smile.

Our garden looks a bit different this week as we have had snow though not as bad as some counties.

It certainly looked cold out there and much of the pond was covered in snow too.

 
Pretty though but it's all gone now but who knows it may be back.
 
If you are like me you are still wrapping your Christmas pressies though I did find time to go out with the girls and had the strangest scone ever.
 
 
Fruit scone with melted cheese and onion chutney and strangely it was actually nice!
 
Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by.
 
  And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

WOYWW 445 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!

I took this on Tuesday when I had a rush of blood!
Decided as I'd finished my Christmas cards I would have a good tidy round hence the mess!

 
And here it is today, just a bit different.
 
 
There are some dies on there  waiting for me to start a new project but otherwise not much going on.
Exploding box, tidy and all the mediums packed away, though not too far away just out of sight Lol!
 
I'm not used to seeing it so tidy so I think I shall have to mess it up a bit before you come back next week.

However, that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

You just have to love these Elena Zinski stamps Set 17, what a cute image they make.

Saturday smiles in the park but what's going on here?

 
The people are all here for the skating!


 
The children and the adults all enjoyed this, a pop up rink for the weekend.

 
To make it more fun there were market stalls too.



 New café open.



 Not very brilliant photographs as the light wasn't too good but this is the view of the cathedral from the park.
Lincoln famous Christmas Market starts Friday.

 
Just for Lisca, here is a photo of the Gully which surrounds the Weir.

 

I've found some great old photographs of the park but those are for another time.

WOYWW 444 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!

 
Just had to stop making Christmas cards for a while though there are a few unfinished in the brown tub front/right, as there are more birthdays on the way.
So today there are Kim Dellow stamps on the desk and to the right of those some cards I've started using with these stamps.
 
I did tidy the exploding box and maybe it's not quite so bad today?????
 
You can just see my Tim Holtz stamp positioner right at the front in it's case.
The Stickles spinner looks a bit precarious up there for some reason but it might just be the angle of the photograph.
 
I have plans for the new year to shift the box of mediums at the far left, they may end up on the floor Lol! We shall see.


So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Friday Fun Day.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

And we are in the park again.

Bandstand finished.

 
New sign posts.




 Fountain and paths completed.

 
New apartments, seating and planting done.

 
 Sadly they knocked the Hall down many years ago but this is the area where it would have stood.



 
 And a few old photographs of how it looked.

 
This is looking back towards the fountain.

 
The café and visitors centre should open soon hopefully.


So all of you who have been watching the progress of our little park, it's nearly finished thanks to the Lottery fund.
 
The weather was lovely when I took these photographs earlier in the week but yesterday was completely different as it snowed and when we went to walk in the park part of the lake was frozen so you can guess it's much cooler.
 
 
So that's your lot today but before we go Maisie is here to show you her happy face.
Those eyebrows make her look grumpy all the time but she's not really though she is a little madam!
 

Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

You can probably see the difference now!
 
After

New book arrived this week.

Friday Fun Day

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

And what a change to the weather we have had.

Really cold and frosty.

 
Whereas last week it was sunny and warm.
 
 
Think Maisie is wondering why the fish food isn't arriving.
The water temperature was too cold and the fish were staying low in the pond so no fish food today Maisie!.
 

But the sun is still shining.


Stan is off for a look round.
 
This really shows how frosty it was.

 
 
And Maisie's showing off what a smart girl she is.


But it wont last.
I'm off now she says enough of that.
 

Look at that tongue!

 
Just a few of the things that have made me smile this week.
 
Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 
And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.
