...and the net will appear!

This seems entirely natural for me.
Jumping in both feet that is, always trusting that things will work out.
(see more about this favourite subject of mine here)
Not leaping out of trees, I assure you.
Especially not this one!
I had just climbed up it in my special PINK
painting/tree climbing sneakers to put my
twinkly Christmas lights up.

Christmas wouldn't be quite as much fun if I couldn't climb my favourite tree to put my lights up.
Skippy, my much loved plank supplier, has nick-named me Tarzan...
Fitting - some days.
But, unlike Tarzan, I need my special pink shoes to do it.
Last year around this time I nearly ruined a really expensive pair of chocolate brown, soft leather boots in my hasty enthusiasm...
That took a bit of the shine off Christmas for Beaker - given that they were my Christmas presents from the year before...
So pink Converse sneakers and a happy tree-climbing-mummy-artist it has to be.
Spontaneity can be organised and still be spontaneous afterall
n'est-ce pas?
No reason to leap then! But Miss Magpie has inspired me, so...
Tomorrow I shall take the leap.
A real one! Well, literally speaking.
With my heart in my mouth.
If you want to find out why...
I invite you to come back then...

In the mean time, have a very adventurous Pink Saturday!

And seeing as I managed to finish another Positive-Plank, in spite of looking after my poorly, littlest messmonster all week, I can add to 'Art Everyday Month' with Leah as well! It's not very pink looking but I'm counting on my sneakers to sneak me in...
Does it pass inspection Miss Magpie?


  1. Good luck with your leap!
    Will be back to check on you...
    take care, Laura

  2. You did quite well with slipping in Pink Saturday along with Art Every Day *hee hee*. Love the sneakers *wink wink*

  3. What great pictures! Everybody should have pink tree-climbing shoes. Just think what the world would be like if we all took saturday off to climb trees!

  4. What are you getting up to. I'm a wee bit curious! Guess I'll just have to keep an eye on you to find out!

  5. You are very brave-I can't recall the last time I climbed a tree...might be about 30 years ago! Maybe if I wore some pink shoes????
    Happy weekend and please don't hurt yourself Ange!
    Best wishes always, Natasha.

  6. Now I checked out 'Pink Saturday' to see what this was all about, then 'Art every day' with Leah. When i clicked on the link I discovered that Leah is a friend with whom I have shared a number of Salon sessions.

    I was not aware she had stated this project even though I had seen earlier on other blogs the logo on the sidebar.

    What a small universe indeed. Here I am in France on your blog only to be redirected to Oakland, where Leah lives and this is about 18-20 miles from my house.

    Now as for jumping with both feet . . . I am going to have to give that a try, since I have not done it since being a child.

    Enjoy Sunday and I will see you on Saturday since you are one day ahead of us here on the west coast,

  7. Pink Converse?! I LOVE that! I must get me a pair too! Not sure if I'll be climbing trees with them though... I think I'll leave the tree climbing to much talented climbers like you ;)

  8. Happy Pink Saturday!

    Love your pink sneakers, awesome.
    I'll be holding my corner of the net!

    Pale Pink And Roses

  9. my darling ange, so this is what you get up to in the countryside - keeping you sane no doubt and very very clever you are my girl. . when do i get a piece -(wedding present perhaps) he he.... love ya agie

  10. Whatever you are brave enough to try, leaves me out. I cannot take high places too well. Since you are wearing your pink shoes, it will work out. Be careful.

  11. Love the pink sneakers! Happy Pink Saturday.


  12. Oh I do love a good mystery!! Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  13. You are hilarious - up in that tree in your girlie shoes! I can't wait to see what you have in store for tomorrow mon amie~

  14. Ange, you are far braver than I am, and I like that you are being brave in some snazzy pink tennis shoes.

    From another Magpie to you (yes, you're surrounded by them, particularly in a tree)... Happy Pink Saturday!


    Sheila :-)

  15. Smile. Smile. Now I am smiling the rest of the day. Great post!

  16. Hi, Ange! I'm back to answer your question. No, you didn't miss my PS post because I missed the PS train this week. I didn't get a post together in time. Lots of craziness going on. I still like to visit the PS posters, and I enjoyed visiting you!


    Sheila :-)
