In a Noo York state of mind

I heart New York and today the new song 'New York' by Paloma Faith is stuck in my head - I love it! Her website has loads of cool pics and a blog - check it out here.

I also love this amazingly intricate New York papercut by Famille Summerbelle - they also have one of London and Paris, but the NY one is definitely on my Christmas wishlist - would look great above the sofa..

And while we're in New York, I love the Sweet Fine Day blog - a tale of family and creativity in Brooklyn, with beautiful photos and recipes.

Three Little Pigs

Today the World's Biggest Coffee Morning is taking place - in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

One of my lovely stockists - Three Little Pigs in Pershore took part and had some of my Cuppa cards on sale for Macmillan, plus the opportunity to paint a caricature on a mug, great idea!

Les Oiseaux

I've been making some Christmas Tree birds, to sell, to give, or maybe to keep.. I quite fancy a Christmas Tree completely covered in birds..
I'll be selling them in sets of three in my shop soon!

We went to Vanfest at the Three Counties Showground on Saturday which was good fun -

Camper Vans of all shapes, sizes, colours and ages. And a couple of Beetles too..

I loved this weird and wonderful musical instrument..

Feeling Autumnal

I love September, that feeling of new beginnings.
We went blackberrying this week and managed to actually get home with a few left.. enough for a blackberry and apple crumble - our own apples too!

I've been trying to get in a Christmassy state of mind and have started some Christmas card designs, sneaky peek below..

Windy Welsh weekend

After a first day at school... we decided to go to the Gower for the weekend.
It was very windy but we had some good beachcombing expeditions..

Bill found a funny long-armed crab, then lost it..

This is Cartonlandia - a town built from cardboard by Mexican / American artist Ana Serrano.
I want to live in the lime green house on the righthand side! Check out her website for more amazing cardboard creations.
