Bee happy ..... roses from the garden

I managed to pick these gorgeous roses from the garden a few days ago before the rain came down.
They are lasting really well and most of the buds have opened now.
They look great in my kitchen.

Bee happy ..... back from another roadtrip

Been on holiday, another road trip, just love them!

View from car while driving the Alp roads into Italy from Switzerland

Alp roads, just like in the original film The Italian Job

Lots of tunnels

Driving through Italy to Lake Como

The hotel at the side of Lake Como which we found.

Lake Como

Gorgeous room in Italy

Our room had a balcony, just love these shutters

Hotel grounds in Lake Como

More tunnels

We started our holiday in Reims, France and then onto Switzerland.

We drove the Alp roads into Northern Italy with a view to finding some James Bond locations in Lake Como. Managed to stay in the hotel at the side of one location, where James is recovering in Casino Royale when the Swiss banker visits for the money code.

After Lake Como we drove through Liechtenstein and then Austria onto Stuttgart, Germany to visit the Porsche museum.

On to Reims again and then back home. We couldn't leave Reims without buying champagne!

Now I am back I can't wait to catch up with you all and start crafting again.

Bee happy ...... screen printing all sewn up

Remember my screen printing practice?
Well It's all sewn up now!

I made the small pieces into hearts and decorated with fancy buttons and beads.
I also filled them with lavender.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
