Still painting

Photo: Rodney Smith


Hope that you all had a fabulous weekend, ours was spent looking after guests and painting.

You will all be happy to know that I only have a couple more volets/shutters to go and then I should be finished.

Mr FF has been busy hanging them and the locals adore them! Too much so as everytime he moved to put another pair on, another person appeared and told him that they loved the colour!

I cannot help smiling as I write this, as we have had groups of people walk down the street then stand outside for ages just staring at them.
So tonight we are the talk of the village so to speak!
It is too dark now to take a photo but I promise I will post a photo tomorrow so you can see how pretty the colour is.

A demain,
Leeann
