WOYWW 225

Hi there Wednesday Peeps and welcome to WOYWW 225 - the chance to snoop round people's desks from all over the world. :-)
If you're not familiar with this then pop over to JULIA's Blog and you can find all the details.
Well - today I have just received my parcel from Artist Clare WILLCOCKS  - a young lady I found a couple months ago who is a watercolour artist (amongst other things) but one of the things she does that I completely fell in love with are Seagulls, and she has recently opened up an Etsy shop :-)  So today finally "The Seagulls have landed"  hahahaha !! and here they are to show you Peeps. I purchased 'Professional Seagulls' and  got a freebie 'Chip Pincher' as well that is soooo adorable. There is another painting I got my eye on too, so I may well be collecting these little gems :-D



Clare is also dabbling her toes into the crafting world too and if you'd like to visit her personal Blog to see her paintings and crafting, then please go HERE.

OK - I'm off desk hopping now. Happy WOYWW.

OMGoodness !!! .... I forgot to put up the Kitty Wall I was making last week - so many people asked to see it so here it is. All images are from SPYDER.

Aaahhh, these seagulls are indeed adorable! The size makes me realise I haven't created ATCs in a while... I might just find some time this afternoon to make some. Happy woyww and a hug from Holland, Marit #76 (Oh, and there's a 'golden oldie' for you on my blog today!)

Neet said...

These are so darned cute. Can see why you want to collect them.
Hugs, Neet 11 xx (and thanks for visiting me)
ps you weren't up last time I looked or I would have tried to get to you before you got to me for a change.

Neet said...

Oh, just seen your Cavalier King Charles picture. Did you paint it? It is amazing!
I once had a CKC and he was the loveliest little fella you could wish to meet. it was love at first sight with the two of us. 20 years since he left but I still miss him so much.
Hugs, neet

Good morrow. We love seagulls too after many years of living by the sea. Those art works are just fabberooni ( bear term)

Thanks for visiting us already today :)

Gillian Pearce said...

Thanks for visit IKE. #73

Got a bit distracted looking at the entrant's to your world challenge. Hope it goes really well for you!

House of Bears said...

Ooh and kitties too, of course we wanted to see the finished result. We totally love it, it's so fun and full of character (or should that be catacter?) what lady constructing a bear btw? We thought you meant here but we can't see. Have we developed bear construction blindness?

I so have to check out her shop! My parents would love something seagull for the beach. My grandmother used to make spaghetti with blue-claw crabs in the sauce (yum) then dip the bread in the leftover sauce and feed the gulls. There was always a cloud of them hanging around, just waiting, long after she was gone. I wonder if I could get one with spaghetti hanging out of it's mouth.... :)

Happy WOYWW!

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Don't talk to me about seagulls! They are a blinkin' nuisance round here! And there are LOTS of "chip pinchers" for unsuspecting tourists! At least they have stopped screeching at 4am now the baby gulls have grown a bit!

Love the Kitty Wall.

Hello - I was hoping to enter your new challenge but when I tried to access it, I got a message that the blog is for invited members only. I'm sure I was on it before, unless I just remember reading about it on someone else's blog. I'm not sure if I will have time to enter before the end of the month, but I wanted to go and read the rules. If it's possible, could you allow me to join? Thanks!
