Rocking my World...Freedom!

In remembrance of Katie, a blogland friend I didn't get to know long enough. A beautiful soul.
Haven't done one of these "Thankful" posts for a few weeks now, but as it is Remembrance Day, I have no excuse :)
I will ever be Thankful to those who put on a uniform and stand up for our freedom.
My grandfather fought in the trenches fron 1914-1919...he survived. His eldest son fought in WW2...he did not. He lies still in Italy where he fell, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Italian people who keep the graves so beautifully.
Bless them All!!!
On a lighter note, this is a plant in my neighbours garden...it flowers in June....it is a yucca of some description...it is getting ready to flower again, now, in November???! So I thank Nature for it's entertaining vagueries :)

I am Soooooo thankful for my lovely tattooist Steve, who spent the morning working on my Totem Tattoo. Just look at those icey blue eyes on my she-wolf...mwahahahahaha........!
I am loving that Reeves have brought out a range of soluble wax crayons(couldn't afford the other make) this pack of 24 cost just £7.49!!
This is a quick sketch I made with them to send to Donna with a small set of the crayons for her to play with. It's to remind her of the green fields of England :D
And I am thankful every day, for the inspiration given by other bloggers. This weeks special mention is for Dawn and Cheryl, who inspired me to make a visualisation of my Guardian Angel


And last but not least ....Hubby, who yet again came home with a cheap treat :) There are 2 alphabet stencils(upper and lower case) for £1 !!!
Blessed Be to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice ! Thank you!

  4. Lovely Rocking list, Gina, perfect for today when we remember those who gave so much for us.

    I have both those crayons and the neocolour II's, and I don't think there's really much difference at all. Pretty sketch for Donna, which just about sums up the wonderful green fields of England.

    Have a great weekend,
