Sunday Madness

Typical Sunday morning madness here, so this fab playroom on the Ikea Family Live website looks pretty appealing to everyone - have a look here to see where they sleep - it's really cool!

Happy Australia Day!

Some Aussie icons from our holiday last year -

Look at those blue skies...

A mystery...

I found this card inside an old copy of Sense and Sensibility I bought in Perth last year - I think it's an invitation to a funeral - of the very suave fellow on the front I think. He's very elegant with a little moustache and a cigarette holder!

Inside it says,
'The Pleasure of the Company
of Miss Sue Ann Turner is
required at the farewell of
Garrick S. Hendy
A Respected and Admired friend of every-one'
I wish I knew who he was - he looks like an intriguing character!

Birmingham 2011

I had a grown up day in Birmingham on Saturday - I met up with a friend from uni and we had a good time reminiscing about our student days...

I have to say Birmingham is a lot glossier than it was in our day - we decided we quite missed the grime and concrete that the new Bull Ring has replaced! (We also started to feel a bit old...)

We had a mooch in Muji and I bought one of these for Tom, then we wandered round the Ikon gallery and quite enjoyed this exhibition- especially the kinetic sculptures which were very hypnotic!

Eliza Dolittle cheered me up on the way to work this morning - love her new album!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Cut and paste

I had a 'making Tuesday' this week - I think these two might be the start of a new card range.
What do you think?

I love the design of the new RSC brochure - the new theatre is now open in Stratford upon Avon- you can see what's on here - I really want to see their new Romeo and Juliet- I've already dropped some subtle hints...

Doodling along..

I started the New Year with lots of new ideas, directions to go in, ambition! But I've lost my way somewhere and have achieved absolutely nothing this week..
So this morning I took the boys to school, came home and just sat down with some paper, scissors and glue and made something for me.
I quite like it and I'm going to make it a regular Thursday morning thing - making something just for the fun of making.

This weekend...

I spent the weekend mostly reading this -


And eating these...

I met my sister in Cheltenham yesterday and had a good wander round the Promenade and Montpellier, including Toast which has the best shop interior -

I love all the old doors that make up the storage cupboards downstairs...

And the piles of old books that are for sale upstairs...

And these hand-painted baubles are gorgeous.
Check out the Toast website here (there's a sale on!)

Wedding legs!

I've got a few new card designs in the pipeline, and also a couple of new print designs - all of which will be available soon!

Loglike and lovely

For Christmas I bought my sister and her boyfriend one of these gorgeous upcycled candlesticks from Loglike (only their one is blue and spotty)

They have a great website and blog, and their packaging is really cool!

A walk in the woods

Just been looking through last year's blogposts and realised there's not a single photo of me - that would be because I'm always behind the camera - so here's me and Mark on a walk in the woods today..

Happy New Year!

I have one New Year's Resolution this year - stop eating cake for breakfast..
