You may have noticed the difference on the blog…lots more photographs, new format and better quality images.
I would like to thank some of the sponsors, who have so generously enabled me to pay for all of this…Tracy at Goldkisses Art, Bandon Pottery Ireland, Suzanne Taylor, Sharleen Adams, Daniel Raphael, Joanne Louise…and all the rest, Thank You! Your generosity has enabled the work of Bealtaine Cottage…thank you so very much!
My photo allowance with WordPress had reached it’s limit and I was deleting blogs and pictures to facilitate uploading more!
I have now bought the domain of bealtainecottage.com and purchased more storage space for photos.
The future of this blog is secure for the year ahead.
So, back to work!
Over recent days I have been hard at it, tiling the kitchen floor…not with any old tiles! No! Broken, unwanted bits of rubbish that was on it’s way to the dump…only to be recycled on my sad old kitchen floor!
The bags of rubbish included some rather nice tile strips and chunks…ideal for star-bursts and spirals…
It can be fun trying to be creative with rubbish…and that is the challenge!
From the sitting room side, the floor looks quite acceptable.
It has rained all night.
My little cottage-on-a-slate is dripping, as are the painted stones.
The clouds hang over the mountain and the streams gush from the hill behind the cottage.
A friend who lives nearby gave me this lovely old milk churn with no bottom in it…painted Emerald Green with a rust-proof paint.
Another friend brought me this lovely Pieris to sit inside the churn, in it’s own bed of acid soil from the bog.
Outside, the sound of gushing water dominates the morning air…
