Tit detached

When we were in our bungalow in Poole, we put up three bird boxes and called them Tit Terrace. You can read a little bit about them here 

One of my other £10 dash gifts this year was a bird house. Hubby was really chuffed with it because it came with a set of 4 small paint pots for self decoration.

Now, I’m not very artistic.
At school, my paper mache Princess ended up being a Wicked Witch as it was so grotesque, and any paintings I’ve attempted have been hardly recognisable as the subject.
Even though I make cards, they usually come in kits or I can buy stickers and pretty papers to put something together.
So I was somewhat surprised that Hubby was hoping I would draw (??!!) something on said bird house and paint it accordingly.

As it happened, he had recently run a ‘How to draw a……’ series on Youtube, one of which was a flower, so I had a go.
In the meantime, he traced a picture of a clump of flowers and put that on the roof for me to paint.
It’s all been varnished now, and I must admit, I am quite pleased with the result, even though I found it hard to hold the brush and keep my hand steady at times.

Not that I’m intending to draw my card designs freehand in future, but I may do a couple as an experiment………….. flowers of course.

As to whether we’ll get any takers for this des-res detached remains to be seen.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
