Fog and furniture - a grey post!

An unusual combination but I was trying to think of a link for my painted furniture and the amazing landscape I saw yesterday morning!
 This week saw a couple of child free days, the first for ages, so I knuckled down to painting and waxing some furniture.
 I tried to balance the boring stuff that had to be done like visiting the optician with more fun stuff like cutting the lavender and doing a tour of the chazzas.
 I found this old school stool in a skip when I accompanied the jammers on a trip to the swimming pool. for me it was the highlight of the trip!
 All finished, it was delivered to the antique centre this afternoon along with...
 a rather unusual shaped airer
 and a lovely old pink painted playpen!
Now for the foggy moment...
yesterday morning we set off quite early (for us) for a day out and drove through lots of misty foggy stuff. As we went up a hill it suddenly disappeared, just like that. I loved this sight looking down into the valley where it was still foggy.
I looked to me like the the sea had crept inland and was frothing its way up the hills.
 Watch out,  here it comes!
 I've never seen it quite like that before. It reminded me of looking down on the clouds from an aeroplane, almost solid as if you could step out onto it... ok I'm getting carried away now.
Somewhere near Compton Abbas air field.
Have a lovely week, fingers crossed for more sun!

  8. Hi Ellie, beautifull landscape and your furniture it is lovely, nice to see your photos and work.

  9. Well one thing was watching the two elderly couples who were 30 stone plus fall out of their holiday van. Not laughing until I saw the sticker on the window that said I love Line Dancing. Great mental image. See you dared me and I told you. Just didn't want to offend any big people.


  10. Beautiful misty photo's :) Your lavender did well, mine went months ok with the terrible weather! x
