Rare Oddities Album Clare Charvill Graphic 45
 A very happy Sunday to you,  hope you're enjoying your day.  Its been a week of mixed emotions starting off with a trip down to London on Monday with Harry to meet up with my lovely friends Sarah and Cathy, and also Cathy and her husband from the US (So Much Scrap) if you re a You Tuber.  We met at the main entrance to Harrods, London and headed up to the Georgian Restaurant for Afternoon Tea.  Oh my, we drank and ate for over three hours and had a fab time chit chatting about all things crafty and oodles more :-) Kathy I hope you're enjoying your trip and have a wonderful time in Paris.

On Tuesday we headed up to Crewe to say goodbye to our dear friend Lyn. It was a very emotional day but Sarah, Lyn s daughter had arranged a very beautiful and personal service and shared her heartfelt Eulogy to Lyn with us all.  We laughed and cried, so touching and so Lyn.  

After a little crafty shopping with Jane and Karen and a lovely lunch with my dear Auntie Loxie I finished off some makes for my craft stall yesterday. Theresa and I had stands next to each other and I just had to buy this card from her.  Amazing depth and colour and has a Banksy feel to it.  I"m going to put it in a frame :-)

I'm being shouted at to take Harry up to the golf club and then I"m going to catch up on some jobs that are long over due before cooking dinner.  Have a lovely rest of your day, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again in the week :-) C

  2. Hi Clare, Sounds like you all had a fabulous time at Harrods, having catch up and afternoon tea, you lucky people.
    Your album is so sumptuous in colours, I'm off to view it after this. Theresa has definitely got a 'Banksy' feel to this card.
    Enjoy the rest of your day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
