playing with photos

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.  ~Kahlil Gibran

Well another week has flown by, still getting over this nasty flu .....When I am at home more my house is like a canvas that I just want to change and explore...Still organising and constantly rethinking my studio....Now that I have my new laptop, I can sit by the fire which is nice and play with photos...The first image is little drawers from my grandmothers old dressing table that was in peices and I like the quirkiness of how I  have put them on the wall.....Gorgeous black letters waiting to be made into jewellery....little french pastry tins to store things in and so much more...

Andrew and I have both been suffering from a terrible flu....Barking like a dog and waking every morning to an extremely sore chest, aching all over and head aches...I am not very good at lying around but my hubby was home today and did a grocery shop, made me some potato and leek soup and I did some computer work and not a lot else.... When I feel like this I look back through our photos to share a bit more of our wonderful trip.... I am really having mixed feelings at the moment of what to move forward with as I am having lots of wonderful little opportunities coming my way but I love the freedom of being home and just being me... I hope you all had a wonderful week...Drop by and tell me what you have been up to....

a little chilly....

The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination.  ~Terri Guillemets

Oh I love going back through the photos of our trip....So many memories etched in my heart.. Isn't this chateau so very pretty.  My lovely hubby surprised us with a night here and like typical children (all of us that is) the next morning after a gorgeous brekky we went and played in the snow...It was the best sort of morning... The last couple of days have been very chilly here, yesterday it definitely felt like snow, unfortunately it doesn't snow here so I sat and started to play with my new shop blog...Go and have a look and tell me what you think....It is would love to hear your thoughts.....
Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:  it is the time for home.  ~Edith Sitwell

Sometimes I feel just so lucky to be in the presence of some of the most talented and beautiful people. When considering what I wanted for my new on-line shop my dear friend Sara from Sadie Olive was top of my list so I emailed her and as always she was so gorgeous and generous with her time and printed off 6 of her prettiest photos for a new range of postcards just for me... I will be selling them in packs of 5 for $12 + postage. I am also working on a beautiful range of charms using some of Sara's lovely images which I am so excited about and will be released soon I hope... Sara inspires me with her beautiful eye for detail, her love of her family and friends and doing what she loves..... I hope all her dreams come true :)
May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.
