Happy Days

So... that "something I was hoping to come off" that I talked about earlier this week, actually came off.....

That "something" was a 6 month old German Shorthaired Pointer who needed to be rescued after he was handed in a few weeks ago and ended up with Friends Of The Animals.  The poor little chap had been shipped round several foster homes while he waited for a new forever home.  We adopted him and picked him up yesterday.  He is just too cute for words :)

So here is the newest member of our family, Billy the Kid, pictured here on the left, sharing his red rubber frisbee with the gorgeous Charlie Brown.

Cute fellas hey!!

Things are looking up :)


Well March is slipping by so fast, and I have to say that for me this March has been a difficult and testing month, however, never one to wallow in the mire, I am looking forward to a brighter April!!  I am looking forward to next week particularly, as I have my fingers crossed for something to come off that will certainly lift spirits here at Green Island Studios.  I don't want to jinx it, so 'nuff said for now... more on this next week :)

This photograph, Printemps, is a brand new listing, available for sale in my Etsy store:

Happy Wednesday friends

Advent of Spring

A week in Spring flowers, Day 1 (Pink Tulip) by Jo Bradford 

I am back in my studio after weeks of travels and I am delighted to see that the gardens are full of spring colour already.

I am still going along happily with my 365 Goodbyes Project  - using up all my expired old Polaroid Film.  To celebrate the advent of Spring 2010, I am going to make a theme of Spring Flowers for a few days, or a week, well basically until I run out of flowers to capture with my ‘roid! Cornwall, UK.

Pop over for a look at what I have been up to with my Polaroid recently :)

Happy Monday folks :)

Hope is never lost

Rhapsody in Blue by Jo Bradford
Hope is never lost
but misplaced.
The sun will rise, 
flowers will grow, 
birds will sing 
and you will feel the warmth 
of hope again

Today, I just need to remember that all is not lost - even if it seems that way sometimes
