Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Warning! It’s time for the churches to start locking their doors.

Remember where you read it first!

If you’re a budding artist and want some recognition it looks like this could be your way forward to more than the stated “15 minutes of fame” 🙂

Or, how a messed up church painting of Jesus sold for $1,421 on eBay!

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire. If you like my photos, you can see more of them on Flickr (Thulborn-Chapman Photography): http://www.flickr.com/photos/cypruspictures/albums/ and don't forget to check me out on Twitter too - you can find me: @CyprusPictures aka Fylde Coast Musings Enjoy!

  1. Wow, I cannot believe that someone would do that to a piece of artwork.

    • Yes, it was highly publicized a couple of months ago. It seems the old lady who started to try to restore the painting soon found out it was too much to take on and each time she tried to wipe out her mistakes – she made a bigger mess. Bless her for trying….. However, all the publicity brought many more visitors to the church so it can’t have been a total write off for them.
