Ribbons and Lace

Today I got up determined to make it into the merceria in El Campello, and I did. China came with me and was totally bemused by my excitement at so much choice in Ribbons and Lace. To be honest I could have spent so much more time and money in there but didn't because I felt guilty. Not guilty for buying the ribbons and lace mind you, more guilty because a few people came into the shop just as I started to make my choices and as there was only one lady serving I felt that I should hurry it up and make my choices quickly; the upshot of this is that I shall have to return.....mmm that will be so hard for me!!!

I think because there is not such an aladdins cave of ribbons and lace where I live I should make the most of what is available to me whilst here.


This afternoon, I went for a walk up into the hills behind the house with Stuart and Stamford, took some photos of the villa from a totally different perspective.

Looking at this picture, The taller tower on the roof is my art room, for those of you who have never seen my villa before. That is where I go for my me time - sea views and mountain views and endless sky, what more perfect place could there be to work than that!

And here is my gorgeous dog Stamford, who absolutely loves the freedom here in Spain, he is such a big softyhe has come home and collapsed with exertion of running around in the hills. That is him settled for the night and that is the end of my entry for today. Going to see about doing a bit in my journal now, even if it is just prepping backgrounds.

How did Stamford get to Spain?

We drove down, and he has his own passport which allows him to return to UK after our holiday. He loves to travel to Spain and is really good in the car.
