Rosemary has arrived & SELWG anyone?


Rosemary and her pals arrived in the post yesterday from blogger pal Ian. Just encase you missed it, I won them in his blog comp a couple of weeks ago???? Fran didn't win and has bitched at the first opportunity each time I've either seen or spoken to him!!! Now Ian very kindly has also included a few brushes for His Royal Highness François in the same envelope as mine and wants proof that I handed them over, so I'll take a pic of the git with his new brushes when we meet up on Sunday for SELWG.
And speaking of SELWG, there'll be 4 Rejects going myself, Fran, Postie and BigLee, so if your going and see us say hello!!! Or if you see Fran, give him a kick in the shins instead!
So who else is going???

  8. Additional brushes just for Fran! Thats a a very nice guesture on the part of Ian, but I'm afraid that all it'll do is encouraging Fran to moan and bitch all the more in future!

    I'm looking forward to Sunday, I always enjoy SELWG and as always I have a long shopping list of items to purchase.

    1. That's what constant whining gets ya, Anne, perhaps we should all moan when we don't win. But it'll be hard to beat poor ol' Fran, he is royalty you know!!

  13. You two fellas are such swell pals.

  14. I won't be there so please give Fran a swift kick in the shins from me. In a nice, friendly way of course.

    1. Well said Matt, Only what you deserve Fran and you know it!

    2. Sorry Fran, I was thinking about a Laurel and Hardy short film called "You're Darn Tootin' (1928)". Its one of their funniest films which ends up with a entire street full of people engaging in a massive shin kicking orgy. Blinkin hilarious!

  15. You're getting a kick in the crackers!

  16. I should see you there (SELWG).
    Extra brushes are always welcome. A very nice gesture indeed. I won't be kicking Fran anywhere! Have you seen the size of him scary looking too! It's a good job he's a gent!

  17. Nice brushes; Ian is top notch.

    Have fun at the show.

  18. Free is the best price to pay. Nice win, Ray!

  19. Seem like very good brushes and hopefully they'll lead to some nice results shown on the blog. Enjoy the SELWG!

  20. Nice brushes! I like the blue handles.

  21. Extra brushes for Fran? Hmmmm are you sure that it's wise to encourage his behavior that way? When my son was a wee lad and through a tantrum we always regretted giving in. Of course now he's 6'4" and 240lbs so giving in is more an act of self preservation rather than poor parenting.

    I've never tried Rosemary brushes and will have to give them a go.

  22. Jolly decent of Ian to send Fran some as well.

    I'm hoping to be there on Sunday, but as the rail service to Crystal Palace is out I'll need to get a bus from Brixton.

  23. poor Fran, hope he wins something else :(

  24. I'll look for you Gravesend shower in the bar as usual. :)

  25. I'll be going. Happy to kick Fran in the shins but in the interests of fairness I'll have to give you a kick too :-D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Enjoy your quality brushes! Enjoy handing some more to Fran!

  27. I just picked up a set of 4 Rosemary & Co brushes. I prefer the Series 401 Red Sable Mix brushes as I find they hold their point better. I also purchase the long handle version as I find it easier to use.

    Great brushes and fantastic service at a very reasonable price.

  29. Nice brushes! I've never worked with a 10/0 before. I can only imagine the level of detail you can do with that.

  30. Have a good time this weekend. It's a good idea to take the picture or he'll say he never got the brushes!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'll be at SELWG with the usual suspects - so will see you there!

  32. No shin kicking. Bad, bad.

    Congrats on the win. I remember Fran wanted these.
