I was really excited to catch up with them. We got on so well the first time we met and I knew this time would be just as lovely.
There were loads of things to choose. I wanted something that would get used in our 'one day' house so decided to go for this...
I'm not sure if it's a quiche dish exactly but it has the frilly edges like one. I can see myself using it as a serving bowl or maybe a fruit bowl.
Once everyone had chosen and got their paints sorted we settled down and had a good chat whilst concentrating on our painting. Julie recently got married and the other two Gem's are engaged so as you can imagine there was lots of wedding talk!
I decided to keep my bowl simple with a faint turquoise colour and some little white polka dots.
I can't wait to collect it this weekend, so exciting : )
After we finished our painting, we had a quick bite to eat then had a good look around the shops (High street, Charity and Junk shops!). Nothing really stood out to me but once we got to the junk shops there were lots of things that caught my eye. There was lots of wooden furniture that would looked so pretty with a little DIY but I didn't ask how much they were...I hate to imagine!
I ended up purchasing this 'vintage' milk bottle...I say vintage but I think it's from the 70's (shows my age..ha!). I liked the look of it anyway and had seen it going for quite a bit in other places so had to have it for £2.
After we said our goodbyes I had a lovely relax at home in the garden with Ian (Have I ever told you how much I love that guy?). We have now been blessed with some gorgeous weather so I am making the most of it : )
Chilled wine and some yummy food is a must!
