London during the Olympics and a little Give-Away

London during the time of the Olympics felt very special. We went for the first day of the competitions to watch Beach-Volleyball. The stadium was at Horseguard Parade and the air was filled with expectations, fun and joy. Being only a temporary structure the stadium looked amazing, the games were very exciting and everybody enjoyed it.
And then they were these dotted around London - the Wenlocks. I only caught a few but they were good fun
Being British my DH had decided to become a Gamemaker during the Olympic Games. He was designated as one of the official drivers for the officials who wanted to get a lift from airports, Olympic venues, .... He quite enjoyed it and met some interesting people. It was the first time I saw him in uniform ......
The next one is now the Paralympics and we will try to get some tickets. I am really looking forward to it.

And now something quite different. I passed the 500 blog post mark and I have more than 200 followers! This is so amazing and I cannot thank everybody enough for always being so kind and generous. It is definitely time for a little give-away!
Now having started to use canvas and tissue and just loving it, my give-away are a few canvases, some white and not so white tissue paper, some white acrylic paint and a few extra bits which you might find useful ....
If you are interested, please just leave a comment. I will draw the winner the next Sunday, so there is hopefully plenty of time to stop by. Petra.

Hey Petra! I always love your photos and these are a real treat. Me and my kids are watching the Olympics every night on DVDs my dad taped for us and sent out from the uk , as we don't have a tv, so we are really enjoying the Olympics. Love those wenlocks! Finally thanks for the chance to win your giveaway :-) and congrats on all your followers, debi x

Lucky you getting to visit London anytime but especially for the Olympics. We watched television non stop for two weeks and enjoyed every minute. The UK certainly did it right!

I think I am too late for your generous giveaway, but did want to congratulate you on 500 blog posts and that great number of followers!
Here's to many more in your future dear Petra!
