I t is not Pink it is BELLADONNA

Now that I am an auntie for my youngest sister I have started to be more creative again and have made a few gifts for mother and baby.

Most of the things that I have made have been from things that I have lying around and have just not got to use or do and thing with yet.

One of the things is a pot of paint that I got from a local shop in Nuneaton and the some of the items I just found in charity shops, local stores in my home town Nuneaton, eBay and in the street.

I have now made three items with one pot of BELLADONNA (not pink) Chalk Paint that is Made in England 125mls.

Stick on Butterflies.

Stick on Silk Daisy Flowers.

One small green plastic pot.

Nottingham Lace.

An old sliver scarf.

I will take photos of the items that I made and what they look like so far, I am not sure if I will not any thing else to them.

I will  put them on my face book pages

The Idle Women of the Wartimes Waterways comes to Town.

The Idle Women of the Wartimes Waterways comes to Town.

On the 1st July 2017, from 19.00- 21.30 The Idle Women of the Wartimes Waterways are coming to Nuneaton Town Centre in Warwickshire to put on a performance at one of Nuneaton local community centres called the Bermuda Phoenix Centre (CV10 JHU)

Refreshments will be provided, the event is FREE but tickets mush be ordered online.
Donations are welcomed.

The event is to comenorate the women who worked the water ways during World War 2 when there was a shortage of men to crew and canal network and deliver vital supplies such as coal. During the war these courageous women where given the nickname (idle women.) But these women whee far from idle epically when they were given the task of managing 72ft narrow boats and 50tons of cargo.

To Celebrate the 75th Anniversary Kate Baffin and Heather Wastie will bring Isobel's War and Idle women Judies to waterside venues to recreate the journey that the women took (London-Birmingham-Coventry-London.)

They will be travelling with a show Called The Alarum Theatre and an historic narrow boat called Trench. With the support of public funding by the National Lottery through the Arts Council England.

One of the places that they are looking at stopping at is Nuneaton due to the Griff Clara Number four Collieries that was once in Nuneaton.

For more information I have included the useful links and websites below. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and hopefully seeing you on the day.
