All things Bright & Beautiful.. all pumpkins great and small!

Oh.. what fun I have had today..!!
I was let out again for good behaviour (twice this week!) and so we headed off to Clifton with battered brown suitcase in hand to peddle my wares (Greeting Cards.. ladies if you please !) to some of the delightful quirky shops there..
It is such a grey, wishy washy day weatherwise and so I thought I would spread some colour into your lives with these photos I took along the way..

Pumpkins galore in every shape and size..



Cauliflowers as pretty bouquets



A shopping trolley and boots.. to die for..



My favourite card shop.. especially as they sell my cards!



It was like an explosion in a paint factory ... it certainly brightened up my day!

What a beautiful posting! It brightened my day, too.
I noticed your blog name and thought it was very interesting so, here I am. You have a GREAT blog and I will add you to my favorites list of blogs.
I am brand new at this blog game and just this week posted my humble, little blog. If you have time, pls. come by and take a peek. And, please...if you have some suggestions to make it better, I would be so honored to listen. I not only have a hard time with posting, I don't know my way around a computer very well. Double trouble !!! :)
Have a sunshine day,
bj

I am totally obsessed with greetings cards, there are just so many great ones out there. Michele, I have added you to my list of blog friends as I think others will like your blog too, the ones who haven't yet discovered you. I really must go and have my mug of tea now before it goes stone cold!
