Royal Wedding

We were home in and out in the front of TV, watching
royal wedding between Prince Willaim and Kate Middleleton.

The ceremony was blessed, heartfelt and sensational.
We were watching historical ceremony here,  it's really great.
The groom and bride looked stunningly beautiful.  I was
amazed by the bride's dress, it's so beautiful and elegant.

We wish Catherine and William much love and hapiness
for the future.

The big day

I've got a big bouquet of pink roses today from hubby.
I'd think it is because he would like to celebrate the
Royal Wedding day of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. 
Who are the latest incarnation of fairy tale royal love couple.

Interesting colour

I'm really not very proud of the painting. 
It was to much water and a bit muddy, but I posted
it anyway.


These two paintings were copied from Flower in Watercoulour
a practical course in flower painting to develop skills and confidence.
