wood store project

From this...

to this! I'd like to say I played a bigger part in this than suggesting 'we' make one and choosing the colour.

But I can't. Clever other half even slated the roof. Top marks!

yellow & grey folksy finds

This colour combo is still bringing me much delight and I keep seeing yellow everywhere. I don't know if it's the fabulous weather that makes me notice it more or if there really is a lot of it about?

Whatever it is – I LOVE it! So I've rounded up some Folksy finds that share this colour match made in heaven. And they are as follows...

1. Crown Hat by Ann Moore  2. Earrings by Grace Showers Jewellery  3. Cushion by Linen Tree  4. Print by Mrs Eliot Books  5. Linen Table Runner by Hand Print by Sima

Took a break from the old routine and went to Herm Island yesterday - 15 minutes by ferry from Guernsey. Now if that's not breathtaking, I don't know what is.

one potato, two potato

In a bid to try something different and get away from the computer I found myself armed with some printing books and a stack of my sketchbooks to have a go at good ole potato printing. Well if it's good enough for Lotta Jansdotter, then it's good enough for me - her work is ace!

Taking inspiration from a sketched peacock feather, I got to work on a 'Romano'. Lotta's advice is that chunky designs work best.

And here are the results...

It's a bit hit and miss. I think thicker paint would have worked better although I quite liked the textured effect when using more than one colour

Lots of fun and nice to do with the sun streaming in on a glorious Spring day. Give it a go!

mini hurrah

It may not be many compared to some but thanks to each and every one of you! Hurrah!
