Lets play....


This is an image of a piece of work by English ceramicist Louise Jenkins, who I knew best for her delicate vessels. I found that this embossed card table was part of an exhibition called The Bristol Pack where a selection of Bristol based artists designed the artwork for playing cards. There are some really beautiful designs, but this one here caught my attention the most. It reminded me of letterpress blocks...so pretty. Now wouldn't that be a fun table to play cards on!?

Am I the only one finding it hard to believe its Friday already? How can a week have passed so quickly? I can't believe how tired I am...however, I think many people are feeling that way, maybe it's just after working so hard at the beginning of the year? Oh well...anyway, I am off out for dinner tonight with some friends, and will maybe go out for a nice long walk tomorrow-that will revive the batteries I'm sure. (or just stay in bed 'till a ridiculous hour?) We will see...

A wonderful weekend to all, Xx
