Yellow Beetroot & Purple Carrots ... are you serious???

I was at the growers market on Sunday morning and one of the suppliers had the most amazing veges.  I bought some yellow beetroot and purple carrot. Such amazing colours, especially when they were cooked.

The carrots were purple on the outside and yellow on the inside.  Seriously - they were. I roasted the carrots and both coloured beets.  The taste of the yellow was out of this world.  It didn't have the earthy taste that the red usually does.  And it was so golden yellow.

This same supplier also had really fresh garlic, still attached to the stems.  It was the really really really fresh stuff that when cut is snow white in colour and totally drips in juice everywhere.  Mmmmmmmm, love my garlic. 

Ah - fresh live food. You can't beat it can you??!!

Prudence, Wilhelmina and Millicent

Yes, the girls all have names.  I thought it is the least they deserved as they have given me so much pleasure and happiness creating them.  They are lovely girls.  Very friendly, amiable and would bring great joy to any household.  So I know they won't last long in the shop window before they are snapped up.

I have listed prints of the gorgeous girls on Etsy - and also on Made It -

This is a really big thing for me, I can't tell you how thrilled I am with myself.  Yes, alot of patting myself on the back. It is a small step I know, but a big one on my journey to living the creative life that I dream of.  Yay to me!!!

Now get back to work Jennifer and bring some more crazy haired girls to life!!

Etsy here I come ....

Am finallly finishing some paintings ready for Etsy and my new life with an Etsy shop - woo hoo, very excited.  I am not even contemplating that they will sit in the shop gathering dust.   I am expecting success!! Huge success!

So here they are - two of my gorgeous girlies!

I am getting quite attached to these unusual creatures, having spent so much time with them recently, and have only just this minute realised that I should name them. They deserve unique and unusual names to match their appearance don't you think? What about Methusla, or Gwendolyn? Hortense... Constance ... Lucretia?  ... Wilhelmina? ... Prudence? 

Really need to give that some proper thought.
