chèvrefeuille | honeysuckle...

The Honeysuckle print is now in my shop...as more and more of them are bursting out in the downstairs garden - it is so sunny here I almost think we are going to skip Spring in the way we did Winter [NO snow at all I tell you!] and cut straight to summer....it is supposed to be over 70 degrees F [about 21C] as the week goes on!!

Just working today on getting some orders finished and trying to get them out - I am [not so] patiently waiting for packaging to arrive {more little Kraft paper boxes}...and am scoffing about the five day wait that comes from requesting 'next day' delivery. Humf.

Happy Tuesday everyone - hope you are out and about and enjoying the sunshine!...I am spending the day wishing I had some more space [and a garden of my own] so I could do some of this!!

xx

EDIT and UPDATE...

A fire broke out in the apartment blocks where my brother and his wife live [Happy Birthday to you!] in Columbus, Ohio last night...as seen here and here on the news today....Chris is a total Hero and I am so proud of him...he went up onto the floor above where the fire was to help get all the other people out okay!! What a star [we did give him a big ticking off..but we are still swelling with pride as he is such a good brave Scotsman!] :)

Thank goodness your brother is well. That must have been a frightening experience, still it shows what kind of man he is you are all rightly proud, you must have a remarkable family to raise such a person. I love your honeysuckle illustrations almost as much as I love your jewellery. You are one talented lady!
