This morning I was busy applying the third coat of lime wash to the oak beams, very messy job as it goes everywhere and it looks like they could need at least another two, when the doorbell rang.
I thought that it was a little early for the post lady as she normally comes around 1/2 past 12 and it was just on midday. It was our lovely and very talented neighbour (Jay is a sculptress)carrying a big bowl of cherries, hence the title of todays post is a gift of my neighbour.
They looked so lovely in the bowl that I just had to take a photo of them.
I had no sooner waved my neighbour off when my post lady arrived. I made the mistake of saying that it was too hot for painting (30 degrees today) when she grabbed my arm and told me to sit in her car. It is only a little car but boy was it hot!
She suggested that she take the cherries and carry on with my painting and that I should complete her deliveries. I decided that it was time to make a dash for it before she locked herself in my house.......
She handed me a "cadeau" as she likes to call my deliveries, some artificial lavender which I have ordered to go in my vasques/urns.
I could not resist having a play with it so popped it into a basket and voila doesn't it look pretty?
I am supposed to be painting the hall so had better get back to it before I get told off......
