Tea and Cake...

I had a lovely day a couple of weeks ago when my friend Heather Attwood came over and we did a mini photoshoot. Here's a few of the shots..

Heather is a photographer based in Leamington Spa and mainly does portraits and wedding photos, so it was nice for her to shoot something different for the day! My Gran's lovely lemon and pink teaset featured again in the shoot. I just adore it! Always good to have cakes on a shoot as you get to munch them at the end of the day! :D


I'm having a day of painting today as I've been asked to do 4 large canvases for a good friend in the style of Paul Klee.. It has been some time since I have painted anything so I am looking forward to getting stuck in and covered in paint! I am a big fan of Paul Klee's work, especially the pieces where he has used gorgeous soft pastel colours like 'Villa Florentine' and 'Highways and Byways'...lovely!

Cockpit Open Studios

I had a great time last Saturday when I visited the Cockpit Open Studios. Not only did I spend some time with my lovely friend Abigail Brown, but it was a pleasure to meet so many of the very talented creators of some of my favourite things... and to purchase them there and then..

I met Mary Fellows of Pintuck, the ladies from Lush Designs, who I bought the fabulous 'LOVE' pillowcases and a 'DISHY' teatowel from, and the fabulous Petra Boase, from who I bought a lovely mug, teatowel and badges.

It was fabulous to be surrounded by such creative and talented people and to be introduced to some new talents as well..
