Almost over the limit

I have just got back from a trip to Florida where the weather was warm and the sun was shining.  Apart from when there was torrential rain and a thunderstorm!

I loved these shadows on the porch where the hanging basket shadow looked like a palm tree.

This is the sporty little Chevvy I hired.

I spent 40 minutes at the beach in 80F sunshine.

And this pelican floated by while Betsy and I were having lunch at Capt. Hiram's.

When I flew out to Florida I had 10Kg spare capacity for when I came back, but in the end had to leave some things behind because I was well over the limit.  And that was with 10Kg hand luggage allowance and 23Kg stowed baggage allowance!

However I have brought some fabby things back with me.

Placemats from Bed Bath & Beyond and kitchen tools from the Dollar Store to use with my Gelli Plate.

Stencils and Stamps

Assorted bits and pieces

Manila folders, a Dylusions journal, some Kraft card and a sheet of foam to make stamps.

A very nice box to keep things in!  Gesso, Gel Medium, Golden paints, and other things

And Kaere was selling off things from her online store so I bought lots of things from her and had them sent to Betsy's house.

Of course, now the problem is where to store it all!

  2. Lots of fun new things to play with!

  3. Lots of fun stuff...amazing how much of that I own! LOL! Thankful to hear you had a great time! Love and hugs!
