Sunday Rain Creativity!

Is rain the sure sign of spring I wonder?! Well it rained alittle today... But earlier it was sunny and warm outside... I tried to ignore the snow and me and the cats had a good time outside... Spring always bring out the creativity in me, and I decided to start a project I have been thinking about for some time. Before yule I bought two very large lanterns. They were a rather boring brown/reddish colour, but I saw them as more or less blank canvases... and I decided to "tee" them up a bit... I love the verdigris colours of green and teal and decided that was the way to go... This is a work in progress however, because the glass will be decorated as well... later!

I was sloppy when I put on the paint, in different greens and teals (3 colours all together) and right before it dried I sanded it down to give it a distressed look... It came out alot better than I thought... and I am so happy with it! Like I said... it will be even more decorated... so see later for more pics :)
It was incredibly nice being outside on my porch.... smelling the fresh air. And the cats bounced around, climbing trees and exploring!

Here is Huldra in the garden tree.... aren't her eyes striking?

And I also got another visitor just behind my house....There were two of them, but I only *just* managed to catch one on film :) I love deers!!! They are so graceful!

and I finally got some pictures of my beautiful gift!!! I love the roses!!!! It's so lovely!!! Thank you again my "secret" friend :)
And last... the happiest news!!! The first foal at Ole's stable has arrived!!! It popped out rather un-announced yesterday. It was a little colt, red like his father... and just 100% adorable!

The only problem is that it's mother has small tits, and he cant get a hold... so the mare has to be milked, and the foal fed with a bottle!!! All the work!!!! I feel sorry for poor Ole... like he doesnt allready have a busy enough day... but the guy is a fighter... (both of them ;) And I am certain they'll both pull through like stars!

And now... I need to do alittle spring cleaning... sigh!

Utrolig så flott lykta di ble! Trodde først at den var kjøpt sånn, men så etterpå at du hadde malt den. Så fine ting du fikk i hemmelig venn gave, har forresten også en sånn duk, veldig fin!

Det lille føllet var nydelig, så fantastisk når man får oppleve slikt.

Hei:-)

Så nydelig føllet er! Å, jeg får så lyst til å sette føll på en av hoppene våre igjen... Det går nok bra med maten etterhvert, skal du se. Når føllet blir sterkere klarer det sikkert å drikke melk fra moren og vil ikke trenge flasken:-)

Flott lykt du har pusset opp! Den ble virkelig lekker!

Ha en finfin torsdagskveld!

Klem fra Britt:-)

P.S Elsket bildene av katten og rådyret!
