Blooms

Hey there...

I've not posted in awhile... I got an ear infection (both ears) and a sinus infection, which has made me feel a little rotten. I even missed out on a night out with the rest of the volunteers at Thursday Club....sigh
Things are starting to move in the right direction though and if it stays as cool as it is today it will make sleeping easier that's for sure

Still I've not been idle, I've been working on some projects for my club and I've just come up with this one...


Can you tell it's a lighthouse? Haha!
I get an idea into my head and then think "how am I going to make that?'  So I always do a practice run. For this I used a toilet roll covered in paper and the blue light cover is a medicine cup... Well, I couldn't think of anything else to use so I got a bunch of these really cheap and they worked... The box they were packed in came in handy too, I cut it up to make the bases. A few shells, my favourite gull and hey presto!
Anyway I'm sure my group will love them

As I mentioned, it's cooled down today and we've had some (welcome) rain...  I love to photograph the flowers when they're covered in raindrops so if you are interested here are some of my shots











I don't have a fancy camera... Just an ordinary Coolpix and it does the job.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, I will catch up with you all very soon

Take care

So, so sorry you've been sick, Ros. I don't think I've ever had ear infections & only 1 sinus infection, but I still remember how miserable that was years ago! You are just so clever--the lighthouse project is darling! You're really getting your money's worth out of the gulls set--love the card you sent me which is still on display! Wow--wish I could take pictures like you do! Love seeing your beautiful flowers! I had to get a new phone, so maybe I'll try using it for more pictures. Thinking of you & sending love & hugs, Greta

What an incredible idea! Love it! is there an actual light in it - and what is it? Can't believe you reach that level of creativity while being sick... will we be able to handle it once you're fully recovered?? Get well soon! P.S.: Your flower pictures are beautiful!

How unlucky have you been with both ears having an ear infection and then a sinus infection. It all sounds very painful? Glad you are on the mend and yes hope it stays a little cooler for you so you can get some sleep.
How creative and such a fun lighthouse project Ros....Great use of the medicine cup and loo roll....They are going to love making the project x
What fabulous photos of the flowers Ros and they look amazing with the raindrops on them. It's strange for us in the UK to be saying that we welcome the rain isn't it? Get well soon x

I can't even imagine an ear infection in both ears and a sinus infection...Hopefully an antibiotic helped you mend pretty quickly.

I spotted your lighthouse right away:-) Your Thursday group will love it. Your seagull and shells gave away your cute lighthouse:-)

LOVED all your flower photos with raindrops. Makes me want rain so I can take pretty photos. TFS them all, Ros.

I'm glad to hear you are on the mend Ros - those types of infection can be miserable one at a time but to get two together is really bad luck. I see your amazing creativity has not been dimmed however and the fabulous lighthouse has brought a great big smile to my face - ingenious or what!
Your garden must be so beautiful and your photos are lovely.
Take care of yourself.
Hugs

Awwwww...hope you back to feeling better soon my friend! Your little lighthouse with the sea gull is absolutely adorable Ros...LOVE it! And your photos of your blooms are absolutely GORGEOUS!! What a great idea to take pictures after a rain...SOOO pretty! Take care my friend!! :0)

Maria said...

Oh, such a lovely creative lighthouse, Ros! Your group will love it I’m sure! Love that seagull from the set that I have, too! I need to get it out and use it again! And, your flowers are super gorgeous! Lovely color! My roses are just now starting to bloom. Take care and have a great week!

Kara Lynne said...

What a cool idea, Ros! They will love this and have so much fun! Your flowers are gorgeous, and the rain drops are beautiful on them. I hope you are feeling better soon!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, my word, your flower photos are so gorgeous! Clicked for a close up on every one of them. I miss my Coolpix. It was stolen at work by a patient and I replaced it with an Elph. Preferred the Coolpix and will probably get another one for a pocket camera to take on outings. Your floral subjects are divinely perfect, too, sigh... Ear and sinus infections -- miserable! Yet you came up with such a cute project for your group! I just now read your Thursday Club page. Very interesting and hugely giving of you, but hugely rewarding, too.

Nice work there, it looks super fun!
I love your gorgeous flowers in the garden too!

Ros, sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I'm a bit behind in commenting on blogs, so by the time you read this hopefully you are feeling much better. Your lighthouse is awesome, you are very creative! Your group will love this :). As for your flowers, wow, you have captured some beautiful blooms. Love the raindrops on them. Thanks for sharing Ros!

Darnell said...

Yikes, I can't imagine the pain of having double ear infections AND a sinus infection! Poor you! I hope by now it's all cleared up, Ros! Your project is amazing, but it's your spectacular raindrop blossoms that stole the show today! Well done!! Hugs, Darnell
