Ice Creamy Sunday...

Well, it is a definite diary moment as the Sun Is Actually Shining And The Sky Is Blue - so momentous an occasion here that I felt the whole phrase deserved to be in bold with capital letters!

So as it's a Sunday and it's finally sunny and warm, this Twisty Town seemed entirely appropriate.  This one was inspired by an ice cream sundae - the round scoops of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, with chocolate and raspberry sauce dripping down over fresh strawberries and raspberries and of course the chocolate flake and round wafer stuck in the top!

Ice Cream Sundays




I should be outside enjoying the sunshine while it's here but these Twisty Towns won't paint themselves so I'll make do with open windows to allow a fresh breeze (and a squillion flies!) into the house instead!

  6. This is so pretty! And whimsical :). I love the sorbet colors!

    I am not sure if you saw my comment on how to make crackles more visible by rubbing paint into them in one of your previous posts. If you are still experimenting with crackling check it out.
