And a very good morning to you...
I feel like this post should be called 'Return of the Long Lost Blogger'
It seems quite a while since I was last in Blogland
and it's lovely to be back here!
I love this little man by the way...a recent find
(although he doesn't have a name yet!)
He likes to sit at our kitchen window and look out on the world.
Can you feel spring in the air?
I've been painting again..
this time the mannequin in my workroom
She stands next to my huge magic cupboard and looks much more
presentable with a coat of paint and some dark wax.
I just need to find a pretty vintage dress for her now!
(Can you see the painted mug tree in the pic?...
A great idea for displaying old ribbon spools, don't you think?)
I've done unusually well in finding bargains recently too...
The hand printed wrap above was half price in a
Cath Kidston sale... I love the colours.
There are quite a few new books to read around here...
This is the first to show you by lovely blog friend Helen
who's inspiring blog you can find here
It's full of pretty makes and a real treat for the eyes.
(Such gorgeous little houses there on the cover)
....and of course there's lots of spring inspiration at the moment in my magazines
(I buy too many, but it's my secret indulgence and I'll never be cured
...between us...I've tried, but I don't really think I want to be!)
It's been lovely to be a part of so many ETSY treasuries recently...
Many have included the little people above
who are lucky to be sitting happily in a total of 67
beautiful treasuries now and you can see them all here..
This one is by Seika of 'Seika's Felted Fairy Fellows'
(and I definitely want to live in one of those pretty pastel houses!)

Knitting and experimenting with my illustrations
on my embroidery machine behind the scenes
