Paper boats and lacey sails. . .


Thank you everyone for your well wishes.  My man-flu has gone, and left me very tired which is driving me mad.  I have so many things I want to do but have an overwhelming urge to lie down and sleep.  My brain is foggy and I can't concentrate on anything for very long...
My day has consisted of getting up late, watching The Waltons...ahh, I want to live on Waltons mountain and drive around in an old jallopy.  (I do drive around in an old jallopy but it's not as romantic as Pa Waltons truck).  After the Waltons I made Damper bread and had some for lunch...yummy.  I also made some Coffee Cremes for Mr Hollywood.  Did the washing and managed to finish my paper mache Princess.  I didn't know she was a Princess until she insisted I make her a crown.
She then sat down on the shelf above my desk and started to play with my paper boats with lacey sails.
The girls were delighted to have a Princess come to play and Alfie the pink elephant and Deirdre the giraffe wanted to know if the Princess knew where Timbucktoo was...
Anyway I've left them on the shelf happily playing while I go and lie down on the sofa.

I haven't got anything finished to show for Sunday Sketches, so I'm sharing what I done Wednesday... :)

Hope you are having Fun and Nonsense where you are....xxx

Loving your glamorous Princess, such a cutie and love the paper boats you have made for your characters. Am sure the Princess will lead them all to Timbucktoo.
Good to hear you are feeling better Catherine. Hugs Annette x

The princess is very glamorous... and love that you hauled yourself off the sofa long enough to make her and her pals... that is amazingly productive... scary even...xx

Your princess is wonderful as are all her paper friends! I used to love the Waltons-haven't seen it for years but it used to be on every Sunday morning! That and little house on the prairie!

This is wonderful, Catherine. I LOVE LOVE all of your sailboats and crafty, cute little gals. :) Glad to hear you're doing better. I'm recovering better here as well and understand feeling quite exhausted. Being so sick for so long really takes it out of you.

I just love, love, love the playfulness of your artwork and posts, Catherine. They truly bring back to my childhood memories about my two girls, who are now teenagers. Blessings!

I made paper boats the other day. I thought I might put them in a painting, but now I see they were missing sails and sailors!! So adorable.

Lynn Cohen said...

Well for lacking energy you certainly birthed a delightful princess and boat mates all quite adorable! After 2 days of sleeping off my surgery drugs, I awoke with vigor and vim of no stopping me, spring cleaning in fury took place here, so trust your body when it says rest, energy does return!
