The Thrill Of What You Already Have #8

Floss did not give us any thrills in August and September – but in October she posted this one.

And I had no ideas at all till I was sorting out the laundry. Definitely a source of cheap thrills [and frills] I love October – because that’s when I start wearing my opaque tights again [my stupid self-imposed rule – I only wear them between Oct 1st and March 31st]. And there they were, on a heap on the bed, [with the white nylon laundry bags I use to wash them in the machine ]ready to be rolled up and put into the basket.

I grabbed a blue chiffon scarf and a few pens from my bedside…


…I have to say it looks better if you stand further away**.

Not quite up to the standard of Neil Buchanan and his Art Attack version of Wall-E, but never mind!

  1. Ha thats brilliant Angela!! Another string to your bow!

  2. I'm really impressed with this Angela.
    Do you think if I arranged all my laundry into a picture I wouldn't have to clean it because it was "art" lol If that woman can call her unmade bed art then I can call laundry art surely.

  3. It looks good to me - very creative! :)

  4. Oh my! You're so imaginative!
    Thank you for the good laugh!

  5. Love it! It really works - and takes me back to Take Hart, let alone Art Attack! Thanks for sticking with the Thrill - I plan to get mine done during the hols...

  6. Hey Angela! I think your interpretation of that picture is simply great! And to grab a few minutes for creativity is brilliant...see, there's always a reason why things are just as they are and where they are, yes?

  7.'s fabulous! Since being inspired by Floss each month I'm looking at things differently too.
    I'm also in my Nora Batty phase for the season.

  8. I can totally see it! It's brilliant! Very very clever use of washing!!! I've been puzzling over how to do Floss's challenge!

  9. It looks ever better from my side of the pond. :)


    P.S. I follow the same self-imposed opaque tights rule.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
