                               CQJP 2012 
Finally finished my August block for the CQJP 2012. As you might know my theme is memories and this block sure brings back good memories of the wonderful times and great weather we had in Florida at Ft. Myers Beach and Sanibel, especially on a very wet and very stormy day like today over here in the Netherlands......
The flamingo´s come from Gerry´s Etsy shop!

The owner was so fond of the painting that she asked me to paint their former doggie Tommie for her husbands birthday last Friday. I just managed to finish it in time....
Here you can see the old guy!

Sorry for not posting these last weeks, but I have been so busy! Some years ago pollution was found in our garden and at last a builder has been busy digging up our garden this summer months. We have been living in this "Sahara" from May until early September ........
The builder even found a bomb from WWII close to our kitchen door........!(We live close to the place where the English and Polish Airbornes in WWII crossed the Rhine to free the South of the Netherlands).

The last weeks we have been working hard to get a new garden, this is the first part that is finished and I am very happy with it!

When we were in France in June I bought the two oleanders behind the statue, the flowers are a beautiful soft yellow and a pink double rose. I sure hope they will survive the coming winter........
          And this is our new lounge set, very comfortable!
And Daisy also likes our new terrace, last week was her birthday, the old lady is 11 years now!
