Orla Kiely and Clarks!

Just a quick blog post to share with you.....

Oh my goodness! I am in love with this collection for Orla Kiely and Clarks!

No girl can have too many shoes in her life... I am partial to a platform heel and love the navy/mustard yellow combination. The added detail of the Orla Kiely floral motif just adds that retro flower power touch!

With the added detail on the sole of the Orla Kiely Stem motif this show certainly has all things pattern and colour going on! With my birthday coming along I am going to drop some subtle hints with the first one being this blog post! A girl can dream :)

Spring is around the corner!

We have had some lovely sunny days recently and what better thing to do is get some fresh air with a walk along the cliff tops. Dylan is certainly enjoying it. It was such a lovely day and there was certainly plenty of other people enjoying the seaside views.

What else I love about this time of year is the types of flowers emerging for spring! My nan's garden especially displays this with many snow drops and crocus'. They were certainly catching some rays.

How gorgeous are these berries? I have also seen some daffodils emerging! So gorgeous! 

If you follow my blog you will see I go to Burton Agnes a lot. Its nearly time for their annual Orchid Festival. I am hoping to go again so will post some pictures for you to see. They are always great for inspiration.

Valentines Weekend and the 16th!

Valentines weekend already! Can you believe it! Its fair to say these chocolates did NOT last long at all. I was also delighted to have my first fair of 2014 this weekend, back at the Merchant Hall for the third time. This time my stall was placed in a different location on the ground floor of the building. (Next to the yummy tearoom). It was great to see some familiar faces. Especially my friend Sam who's business is Samantha Grig, you can check out her lovely work here:

Here is my little stall, I did have a helper with me for the day but they decided to hide for this picture. Sunday was such a gorgeous day, especially after all the horrible wind and rain we had. My heart goes out to all those effected by the floods. There was lots of people making the most of the Spring sunshine. 

The buildings wooden beams were amazing. Even though it was slightly creepy I loved the sound of people walking on the old wooden floor boards above.

To the event I took a long many of my current designs to the fair. I have a few new ones on the go including Mr Fox, I cannot wait to produce him on my work and get printing. The fair also has a cute little vintage tea room serving delicious cakes and tea. Yum!

Anyway, I hope you all had a fab weekend. I thought it was Valentine's Day today so was very disappointed to find out it isn't for a couple of more weeks!

Sasha Unisex

Sasha Unisex is a tattoo artist based in St Petersburg, Russia. I came across her work via a blog and thought I would check out her Instagram. I am too much of a chicken to get a tattoo myself but some of these pieces of work are simply beautiful. Have a look....
