Today my friends and I went to this beautiful artists' village for a lovely lunch. This is such a magical, peaceful place, and the sun was shining for us...a beautiful day indeed. I really want to do a little pond like this in my back garden...water lilies and all.
After our lunch we wandered about the gardens (there are 12 acres here), and checked out all the beautiful old buildings...
Just look at the beautiful leadlights...I am in seventh heaven when I am here...
Just look at that beautiful iron spiral staircase!
Secret doorways leading to beautiful spaces.
Such majestic buildings. I could stay here all day.
Montsalvat is a very old artist's colony.

A collage made by me for my friend...embellished with flowers pressed from my own garden.
I made this little fabric collage as well. Both are inside a gorgeous wooden photo box with a silver lid - silly me forgot to take a photo of the whole thing, but you get the idea.
Happy Birthday for tomorrow dear Helen xxx
