Little Urchins...

Such a sweet gift from my friend Tess, all the way from her homeland of South Africa. These are truly beautiful...a found luxury. So small and delicate....I love them.

Here is a link to a post by Lisa that I found really touching, I think it asks all the questions that seem to go through everyone's heads just now..maybe it's the new year, the grey of January, artists' and designers minds? I have so enjoyed finding Lisa's art work, and her musings...I love its deconstructed, almost questioning nature. I find it so beautiful. Here is to fresh starts and sunnier shores for us all...x
