First Night Design | MKG, Memories and Me #Prints

Some of you know that I had another eye appointment at the hospital on Thursday. The scar tissue was removed by laser, which was fairly painless. I might see a difference in a couple of days but there was talk about it taking six weeks.


No change so far. I’ve always said I was on this earth to learn patience and so it remains. I shall keep smiling and laughing. Because that’s what I do!

And now to the real point of the post.

About a year ago, dear Marilyn of MKG- Memories-Keepsakes-Gifts bought one of my prints from Crated. She has now found the perfect frame, as above, and it’s going to look fabulous in her new kitchen. Thank you, Marilyn, for posting about it.

However, took a while for me to realise to whom she was referring:

I first represented this as “Lillian Vernon”… my mistake!… That name always comes to mind when reading Sarah’s Blog… I had read and heard of “Lillian Verno…

Anyone who is friends with me on Facebook will have seen the photograph below. For anyone else, it just so happens that I bought the same print as Marilyn about six weeks ago from Redbubble and with a frame.

As you can see, it hangs above my kitchen sink. I get such a kick out of it. I’m pretty smitten also with my black tap with a white handle, which is from Ikea and the best and easiest mechanism I’ve ever tried.

It replaces what I thought was a beautifully sinuous — apparently very expensive — chrome tap installed by the previous owner but it was a painful ordeal for my fingers.


And that’s it for now.

Take care and keep laughing!

  1. Patience is overrated. Use only as needed.

    As the owner of one good eye and one that doesn’t help much anymore, I have a lot of sympathy for what you’re going through. All possible best wishes. Wish I had something more useful to send.

  2. Love the print and it looks fab in both frames. Hope it won’t be six weeks before you see an improvement. Are you on a waiting list for the cataract in the other eye so they can do it as soon as it is sufficiently ‘ripe’?

  3. I’m with you about taps …. some of ’em are instruments of torture. And the placement! – skinned knuckles anyone …
    So goad your surgery went well … all digits crossed for your sight. 🙂

  4. I love your kitchen. The picture is delightful. Food is a marvelous subject matter. I once painted three pears and could not be persuaded to sell my little watercolour. Nor could I part with a pineapple. They are in my kitchen. Keep smiling.
