300 Followers! A Giveaway Thankyou :)



This morning I noticed to my delight that I have reached 300 followers! Thankyou all so much for your visits and for your wonderful words. I very much appreciate your visits and love to read your messages. In my last post I showed you a painting that I'd almost finished, ready to sell on Ebay. Instead of doing this, I've decided to give it away as a gift to one of you out there in the Bloggesphere! To win this all you need to do is to become a follower (if you haven't already) and to leave a comment on this post. :)) 

It measures 12 by 9 inches and is painted with watercolours with added touches of gold and silver. The scan doesn't pick up the metallic shiny bits very well, so here are a couple of photos too.


I hope it will find a nice new kindly home!

Now that I've got my camera out, I thought I'd snap a few flowers in my garden.

I like deeply coloured ones.

and brightly coloured ones.

and then I heard a buzzing noise and quickly took this one before the little bee flew away.

Happy weekend to you, it looks as though we might actually get some sunshine this time!xx

I thought I was already following you but it seems I wasn't - but I am now :-)

Gorgeous painting - I love your art style.

Congrats on your 300 followers - actually now you can make it 301!

Kat W said...

Oh no, sorry Jessie - I was originally correct and was already following you so I think maybe not 301. Oh I'm all confused (easily done in my case). Kat :-))
