Ruby's ATCs and Singing Sophie in Sherborne ...oh and a Sombrero...

Ruby would like to know if anyone would like to swap ATCs with her. She has made 5 for swaps camera has run out of battery though and my phone has started taking strange coloured photos any ideas why ????so will post pics of actual cards when all equipment playing ball again ............She is just too cute in the hat and clip on earrings that we got from the jumble sale ...

Ruby being creative ....

Drove a 150 mile round trip to watch and listen to Sophie singing in Sherborne Abbey last night . The group were singing Rachmaninov's Vespers by candlelight(all in Russian too ...)It was quite amazing in such a beautiful setting..... Ruby came with me ...........although I'm sure it wasn't her chosen music style she was really good and listened for over an hour ...well done that girl or girls should I say....the sat nav took me a strange way home through the heart of Dorset lots of narrow country roads ........quite picturesque in the day I guess but not ideal at 12 O' clock at night......sorry my camera's battery was exhausted when I went to take some pics of the event ...story of my life ....had to use my phone had the cheap seats as you can tell!!!.........

Augustus or Artoogus as Ruby calls him......sporting a fine sombrero that we got at the jumble sale .....


  1. Now that was a long trip Lorna but bet it was worth every moment of it and what a grand photo of Sophie and Ruby x

  2. Of course I would LOVE to trade an ATC with Miss Sophie. Does she want five from one person or one from each of five people?
    Let me know and let me know where to send mine please.

  3. Thanks jennie yes it was a bit rash and the journey home was a bit hairy luckily Ruby slept all the way ....xx
    Thats great Lynn I think she was going to do a 1 to 1 I have emailed you so will be so pleased she sees the cards I get and wanted to swap too ....xx

  4. Oh dear Lorna i forgot to say i would do a swap with Ruby xx

  5. wow- that must have sounded so beautiful!!

  6. Jennie thanks she is going to be so pleased...xx
    Anne yes it was really atmospheric..I don't get to hear her sing very often as most of her singing is in London and on tour to other countries and I don't do London very well ....xx

  7. If her cards haven't already been snapped up I would love to swap with Ruby,

  8. Carol thats sweet of you if you email me at artymess (at) yahoo (dot)com I will organise it with you Thanks ....xx

  13. hi Lorna...

    Sarah is excited to begin her ATC's.

  14. Glad Ruby is getting into the family act or should I say ATC. If she needs another swapper, I am in! Wish I could have heard Sophie singing, sounds lovely. Argootus spendid in sombrero, missed catching up! xox Corrine

  15. You must be so proud - I'd have certainly shed a tear or 2 as well. (I have to wipe them away before the boys see them or all I hear is oh, muuum!

    The link thing, look, if you have time, at my most recent followers. Fenland Studio enables you to get to her blog via the link, but Siztats doesn't, so I can't visit, unless I'm being completely stupid, let me know if I am, please!

  16. Carmelina ruby is so excited to swap with Sarah too ......xx
    Emma I get what you mean now but whenever i opt to follow a blog there is never anywhere to put a link ....strange !!!......xx
    Corrine good to have you back I've missed you ....xx

  17. Ruby is adorable! The light in the church is beautiful---such a soft golden glow. Your postings are always so full and fun.

  18. Thanks Madeline I have posted your card so shouldn't be too long till you get it.......xx

  19. :D looks like Ruby's got quite a few people to swap with! From what I can see of her cards, it looks like she inherited your artistic skills :)

    Anyhoo, I've nominated you for a fun little blog award, The Sunshine Award, because your art brings a little sunshine to my life! If you'd like to pass it on, details are on my blog. Have a lovely weekend, Lorna!

  20. Oh thank you Kira ...thats kind of you to do that.....I love seeing your art too ...full of energy and colour .....xx

  21. I'd be very happy to swap - please send me an email to
