All whites...........

 Inspired by my vintage French wallpapers in shades, of chalky whites and greys with metallic touches I have begun work on a new range of Winter Items in these romantic shades....trust me to start on Winter as this heatwave is washing over us....ha ha

This is one of my new cushions in milky whites and greys, vintage hemp and printed poetry stuffed and soft perfect for Winter and candlelight evenings



Talking about candles I have been really fortunate to buy some really lovely things this week ( back being MUCH better and wanted to share,
One is my new French walnut table totally in a dilapidated state, but needed a good home, and a very very shabby pair of Toile ware candle holders, all flaky paint and just what I like. I have popped the table next to our  bed, I haven't a clue  where I shall put the candle holders... 



 
                                                           Happy sunshine days

A flash of Turquoise


I would love to capture how amazing it is to see a Barn owl fly out into the violet haze of early morning, or the flash of iridescent turquoise lining a Kingfishers wings as he skims the water.

 How having a bad back has made me more observant and patient how this pain has become a gift... an insight...  a lesson of life. How its very need for measured movement  has changed my days.

I can share with you my painting, and my French wallpaper decoupage suitcase that I have been covering.

 I have within these warm slow painful days become insightful, sagacious or maybe I just dream of these states of mind?

Here are some of my watercolour paintings from my June work book and projects  xxxx







Village Fairs


My suitcase


The Handle still to cover


Placketts


Bands of vintage patchwork

Pretty finds for Tuesday xx


Some faded curtains


rather pretty pyrex

a lovely Gypsy Girl (sorry she is sold and has a new home xx}


Isn't funny how we find and even buy things in colour story's, within minutes  I had bought the pyrex dishes in mustard and turquoise just after buying this 1950's Gypsy Girl Picture, I love her but will probably sell her in my Etsy shop, I quite fancy selling the occasional pretty vintage item I come across. 
I shan't be selling my lovely vintage faded curtains though not yet anyway xxx.

Hope you are having a few sunny days they make such a difference don't they
