    1. Thanks Shazza, for the lovely comment. I was worried about the frog as the water wasn't very clean. I was amazed how it had hopped all the way up the step to the back door and it knew there was water in there . There is a small pond in the garden which we have had frogs in before.

    1. Thank you simplenaturalhandmade, to be fair I did drop a big hint about the vase to my dad. Have to disagree about frogs they are lovely, anything that might eat slugs gets my vote.

  5. Loving your vase(quirky), the frog & deer (love animals), your paper journals (have stuff like that too, but not as tidy), and we had similar thoughts on empty & F. Oh, & I love visiting Fountains Abbey when we are in UK. Have a great weekend & take care.

  13. What a great set of photos; so hard to select my favourite but I will chose the vase closely (very closely!) followed by your baking. I hope the stag was a friendly one and that you used a telephoto lens!

    1. Thanks Threads through my life, for the lovely comments. The Deer are quite use to having people around, as long as you don't get to close they are ok.

  14. Your photos are great :) That frog is quite magnificent - we don't see any around here. And your junk journals make me want to rifle through them - paper is such an exciting thing when it's displayed like that.. I like the wet street in Hull too - makes me want to visit it.

    1. Thanks Pam, there is always next month, you can use old photos if you want. Its great to take photos you wouldn't normally take. I had to think how to make the word "Kettle" look a bit interesting.

  16. Fabulous photos, Amanda, especially the frog! And I love seeing your junk journals, now that I have seen how you create them. Your beautiful vase is very 'Cycladic' in design, I feel.

  18. Sorry about late comments. Like many of those commenting above I love the frog pictures. The rain in Hull might not have been good for a day visit there but it did make the cobbles look beautiful.
