Why have cotton………?

………………………when you can have silk?

Why have ‘Nescafe’ when you can have ‘Taylor’s lazy Sunday’?

Why have ‘Cadbury’s’ when you can have ‘Green and Blacks’?

Why look at photos when you can get out and see the real thing?

Why swim in the baths when you can swim in the River Duddon?

Why have ‘Strongbow’ when you can have ‘Old Rosie’?

Why have machine-made when you can have English hand-made?


Why have machine-made when you can have ‘English Antique Glass handmade‘?

Oh my. Take a look at this….. P1020766

Now don’t get me wrong , I am a cotton kind a’ girl, (especially if it has a wee slub in it) but take a look again at this silk……………

It has a vibrancy, a shimmer, its floats, it makes me shiver. It is beautiful.

Can I ever not use it ever again?

And no, I haven’t gone crazy.

(But tell me, can you see Jesus’ face in that piece of dark streaky violet?)


Well perhaps not Jesus….

Anyway, isn’t my latest delivery just wonderful. It is for my very next commission for running pals Helen and Mike.

It is to be transformed into a  lakeland scene and be fitted in their brand spanking new front door. Will I dare to cut into it? Will it cut like butter?

Why have marg’ when you can have butter……?

    I tried very hard but I couldn’t see Jesus. Never there when you need him! Great blog Debbie!

    I can see something like Munch’s Scream. Perhaps it’s similar to one of those ink blot tests in that what is seen says more about the viewer than the viewed!
