Hi Chrisy, its terrible that you have to expect a reoccurance of your condition so often. You are fabulous to remain so positive, im not sure i would be quite as brave as you.

I would love to enter to win some of Tim's photos!
As you know im already a follower :)
And my favourite pic has to be the 'Vintage Flemenco Dress Spain 2007'
Im not sure if i was meant to leave seperate comments for those 3 entries?

Anyhow, wishing you a speedy recovery. Looking forward to your next post :)

Fantastic give away….
I love the photo “Spanish walls” in Tim’s etsy store, have become a follower to Tim’s blog.
and I am already a follower of yours.
Thank you the links to Tim’s wonderful work and blog. This has come at a perfect time
because I am researching and buying vintage cameras as a gift for my daughter.
She has always loved taking photos from the time she was six… she has a wonderful eye.
After H.S. she went to a photography school and it killed the love that she once had for photography.
Well not her love for photography but her self-esteem…Her work was much better back then, than now.
We pray that she gets that spark back…

Louise

PS… I will post on my blog about this give away later today…
Happy to hear you are feeling better.

What a lovely contest! I love Tim's photos (so many, but Flaminco dress in bedroom, and high tide catch my eye at first....) So count me in 4 times, for following your blog, and Tim's, and my pick, and leaving a comment....and I soooo hope i win!!!

LindaGJ said...

What lovely photos you have on your blog. I didn't realize you haven't been feeling well. Although I've been too busy to catch up, so that is my reason. I have been having fibro pain flares and headaches, but I'm doing ok , just a lot of work. Thank you for your comment on my blog about my shack. I kinda feel the same way about selling it, but I am working on originals and I will have to get over that. I never sell my really detailed originals. It's too hard. But I do need to make some money. Maybe someone will fall in love with it and buy it for a good price.
Feel Better!!!
PS. I'll have top check out Tim's blog!
Linda :)

Shrimp Salad Circus said...

'Street Party' is just a stunning print that I know exactly where I'll put when I win - can't hurt to have a positive attitude, right?

I lovelove Granada, and it's so neat that Tim's based there; he could take gorgeous pictures for a lifetime there and never have to leave if he didn't want to!
