Hopefully I will be able to post today! I have been having a lot of blogger problems of late,thus the amount of time since the last one...I've tried google chrome quite a few times but the last time it was apparently corrupted & kept shutting my computer down at really annoying times. Enough said...
Last Thursday I wanted to post about 'Say No To Bullying' Day. The day was not about raising money but encourages everyone to wear orange to show their solidarity against bullying & to raise awareness of how prolific bullying is in society, whether in the home, schoolyard, workplace, street or online. Mousie's school encouraged all the kids & parents to wear something orange, decorated the school front gates with orange balloons & streamers & also included lessons, discussions & activities on the subject.
Me, being a big lover of orange, have many things I've collected of that colour around the home...here is my tribute to ORANGE (if blogger allows me to add pictures today ;-))
|Stained glass box made by my Dad..& Mr Tickle|
|My favourite storage boxes & one of my|
many vintage craft books.
