Holidays!

Image
I am just back from a magical trip to Phuket, Thailand. We spent most of the time in our swim suits, we ate amazing food, read books, collected hermit crabs, went on long tail boats, enjoyed the night markets and the crazy night life! It felt so good to be in warm weather after what felt like months of winter. But it is always good to come home. Here are some of my happy, snappy shots taken on my iphone with Instagram. We had such fun!

Dog days are over soon

Image
Paula is still away on holiday and I am missing her a wee bit, not as much as her doggy Bella might be though!  I don't have a picture of Bella pining cos I'm sure she is very happy and spoilt rotten at the moment - but this little frenchie from Sibling Rivalrie is cute and reminded me of a doggy waiting for her family.

The lovely detail of line and embroidery that this artist from Beunos Aires uses is breathtaking!

New Work - William Blake in Blue

Image
I have completed some new work for Sweet William. There are three prints in this lot, all in shades of blue and turquoise, I seem to be going through a blue phase, although I have always loved turquoise, I think it may be my all time favourite colour. Two of these prints include beautiful words by William Blake; 'I cry, Love! Love! Love! happy happy Love! free as the mountain wind!' the print has the words 'free free as the mountain wind' which speaks volumes to me as I love to climb mountains. The other print has the words 'kiss joy as it flies by' which is such a beautiful thought. The floral wreath is some thing that I revisited and incorporated the blue tones to match the other prints. I have had fun putting these together, they are now available as archival art prints in our Etsy store.

I do love a bit of pink! All links to these beautiful images can be found in my 'inspiration board' on Pinterest.

Seasons

I am aware that as we long for signs of Spring down here in the Southern hemisphere, others are preparing for Autmn. This beautiful treasury, that incorporates our Home Sweet Home print, was created by Atelier Unomi on etsy and is entitled My Autumn Table. Enjoy.
