Today I want to show you some lovely little enamel on copper pictures which were made by a friend of John's grandma, Nora Walsh. I don't know anything about her but I do also have a watercolour and an oil painting by her so she was a very versatile artist. Grandma gave us the pictures over 30 years ago and I got the impression she'd had them for a while before giving them to us. I've tried googling Nora Walsh but to no avail. I guess it will remain a mystery.
Speaking of mysteries the figures remind me of the movie Picnic at Hanging Rock. I haven't seen this movie for a long time but I remember loving it when I saw it at the cinema. I also loved the book by Joan Lindsay, I must try to get hold of the book and reread it.
I've always found Hanging Rock to have a mystical air about it and I've visited it many times. The Harvest Picnic at Hanging Rock is always pretty fantastic too.
Do you have something you treasure to share with us today. It can be a thing, a person, a place, an idea, in fact anything you like to share.
Please put your details into Mr Linky to be part of the fun.
I thought we could make the first Tuesday in May a special Share Your Pet on Tuesday Treasures. I'm giving you a bit of notice to give you time to take your pictures. There will be a special giveaway too.
