Cow on the mooove

Well she was getting in the way a bit, but not all that much really and now that she's gone I kind of miss her and feel a teensy bit sad. Yep, Parsley the cow has left the building (mine at least). We'll be briefly reunited on Sunday when all 52 of the painted cows will be on display to the public before being whisked off to their temporary homes where they will spend the summer being photographed and sat on. After that they'll be auctioned off and moove to their final homes.

I least now I can get on with some illustration ideas I have for new prints. Watch this space...

blog features

At a time when we should be basking in all that is Summer and when sales of my Seagulls and Beach Huts designs are popular, my Wellies card has been featured on 2 different blog posts today! Summers just aren't the same any more not like the good ole days...

See the blog posts here http://www.wearebreadandjam.co.uk/blog.html and here http://lovefromflorence.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/folksy-friday-rain.html

Tracey English Giveaway

If you pop on over to Tracey English's blog you could be in with a chance of winning one of her prints or a selection of cards. Don't mind if I do - love the London prints, they remind me of home.

Ready for her top coat...

A few snippets of the cow. Only one or two more flowers here and there to do and then she's ready for varnishing. Had some interesting looks from passers by when we took her out for a graze (and a few photos) in the field! Although I had one conversation with a lady who didn't even bat an eyelid or ask why we were carrying an enormous blue cow! She is inspired by all the beautiful hedgerows in the lanes where I live (which have sadly just been cut back for Summer). Will post a full pic later in the week when she has had her final top coat and finishing touches....

Belated Jubilee

I'm a little behind with my Jubilee post of the delicious cake we enjoyed whilst watching the celebrations. Very proud to say that the strawberries were from the garden and that I managed to pick them this year before the birds got stuck in!

I was a little disappointed to see people taking down their bunting yesterday, mine will be up all summer. Hip, hip, hooray!

Lovely stockist - Evie & Me

I took a selection of prints down to a lovely stockist in St Peter Port, Guernsey. It's the most amazing shop called Evie & Me. Every time I go in I just about want to buy every last thing in there! It sells everything from furniture to mugs and of course cards and prints by Little Paper Gallery. The lovely ladies at Evie & Me have the prints framed in simple white frames which look great. So if you are a Guernsey visitor or local, get yourself down there and have look-see!

Badly want that sofa...

Spotted these lovely lavender bags by Heart Zeena and tea towels by Charlotte Macey Textiles...
