This little saying comes from a book I used to adore as a kid.. I knew it so well, in fact, I could read it upside down, back-to-front, and with my eyes shut. It was one of those books.
I nearly abandoned this design after I over-worked it into a big mess.. but somehow managed to save it, sort of. I find myself not really using watercolour as watercolour, and more as just paint. Oh well, if nothing else it looks great from a distance :)
A few months ago, as a birthday present, I received some more of these beautiful mugs from a dear German friend of mine. One of them was stamped with the phrase ‘durch die Blume’ which literally translates to ‘through the flowers’ but actually means something more like ‘to beat around the bush’ or to say something in a roundabout way so as to not offend.
German people out there – please correct me if I’m wrong!
Anyway, it was a new saying to me, and I liked it so though it would be perfect for today’s words exercise :) What do you think?
I found this saying over on Pinterest, isn’t it nice?
Wishing you a bright, sunshiny day :)
We all know this song.. I Can See Clearly Now by Johnny Nash.
These lyrics are from one of my all-time-favourite duo’s, Simon and Garfunkel. This is from their song Sound of Silence.
I don’t know if you can tell, but the yellow bits are actually gold.. so it looks really nice in the light!
