Colourful Friday-Brown


 Hello,

Welcome to Colourful Friday. I hope you had a great time looking for things around your home that are Brown.
 We have some Teddy Bears including "Bobby" who is in the centre, Thomas is in the top left photo. My Aunt gave me the Singer sewing machine drawers. I made the ceramic cherubs a few years ago now. The box in the bottom middle photo and the photo next to it are a carved box that belongs to Lucy. This is a very old box which my Aunt Lucy purchased in India many years ago. 


This photo collage shows a mirror I purchased in New Zealand a few years back. Another ceramic creation,folk art boxes.laundry sign,cottons,cup and a elephant. My favourite would be the wooden tape measure Ian bought for me a few years ago.



This collage contains a Kiwi,doll,painted wooden dolls chair,mini quilt,the first ever Teddy I made many years ago. A dilly bag and a very old school book,one of the authors has the surname Brown.





"Wave Rock"

I love going to Hyden and looking at Wave Rock. This is one huge Brown rock. 

I hope you found lots of Brown items to share. Please check out the link below to see what everyone else found. Oh and next weeks colour is SILVER. If you think you may have trouble finding SILVER just do a Internet "image" search and this will give you some ideas.

Happy Colourful Friday
Bev C

Dear Bev, Thank you so much for continuing Colorful Friday's while Robyn is away. I love bears so particularly loved the cute little fellows mixed in with all your other glorious brown.

Hi Bev.
You have had a fun time collecting brown. I think teddies will be a popular theme. Yours look so cuddly.
The carved boxes are a good reminder of our grandparent's era too.
Lots of good memories of visits to Wave Rock. Love it!

Sally said...

Oh I adore your brown teddy bears. They're all so cute.

... and yes wave rock - isn't that fantastic! You've taken a great shot.
