We were very lucky to be able to get away for a few days recently to Granada, a gorgeous Moorish city in Andalucia, Spain. Pete, my husband, and I had been a looooong time ago, but this time we were going back with our daughter Tess. It is a very decorative place and for those pattern lovers out there, there is lots to feast your eyes on, so I thought a few pics might be of interest.Read More
So, I will start at the beginning...which in this sorry tale is the first day of the school summer holidays. My day had started very positively, I had cycled to our local pool to meet a friend for our early morning swim. The sun was shining, I had a lovely working day ahead, life was good. Within 20 minutes I left the changing rooms in a wheelchair, destined for our local A&E department.Read More
I have just returned from a cheeky 3 night trip to Amsterdam with husband Pete, it was my first time in this beautiful city and it more than lived up to my expectations.Read More
We thought it might be nice to share a few shots from our studio open day in early May. It is always such a huge amount of work to make the studio presentable & hide away the clutter of everyday working life. I actually started preparations in the Autumn of last year - getting a woodburner fitted, a new kitchen unit & general painting and tidying. The vintage pieces of furniture always need a lot of work too as generally they sit in a corner feeling sorry for themselves for a long time until I can find the time to give them the tlc that is often needed. But it was all really worth it in the end and I was really fortunate to have lots of help from friends and family along the way.
Many thanks to Alys from Olive Living for the last two images.
