Well hello do?

...the usual story of it being a busy week here in the workshop {and gosh, where did the week go!?} - I had another lovely wedding last weekend {congrats to my cousin Richard and his lovely new wife Leah!} and have been running to catch up ever since! My shoulder has miraculously unfrozen {thank you for the well wishes, they did the trick!} and I have been busy at the bench and working through the orders which should all be cleared by tomorrow...

Had a wonderful selection of mail over the last two days - not really a surprise, as I have been doing a little bit of retail therapy and treating myself {one has to indulge every now and then, right?} I thought I would stop in today and share some of my spoils...who doesn't love spoils??!!!

Some yumminess from Toast {I also want this dress {in the blue} something bad!} - dreamy tea towel goodness from Lush Designs, I also bought the pillow cases too in Duck Egg blue...and some new footwear... for dry, for wet...and for fancy.....guess which ones will get worn the most, egh?

Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen :) love is full of so much truth and beauty....!

good day to all, xo

Pom Pom...

Crazy about berry, spherical forms just now and am seeing 'pom-pom' shapes creep in everywhere....hello fall.

Busy week here, {plus frozen shoulder - so bad timing central!}
...back soon, xo

Step by step...

At the bench today...sawing, planning, designing,, new, new. I got rather diverted in the last few weeks but hopefully am back on track and glad to be spending some time on these new pieces as I go...busy with lots of orders too. Busy is good! :)

Have been itching to work on these pieces involving the leaves I spotted a few weeks ago when out for a photo walk ...speaking of which, I am hoping to get out on another long one this week as I seem to be surrounded by a plethora of Hydrangeas and Lacecaps of every colour {changing by the day!} everywhere I look in the neighbourhood....Autumn really is in the air. I am looking forward to spotting the changes...! I am also ready to give up on really ain't coming, so roll on Fall...... ;)

**Applied Arts Scotland had started a new blog - def one to bookmark!

..oh! and I always mean to say {and always forget, till now!}...Post Secret is a highlight of my Sundays each weekend. It's such an extraordinary project, I would urge anyone to bookmark it!!

Happy Wednesday, xo
