an ode to the grey skies of devon...

inspired by the rugged granite hilltops and huge overcast stretches of sky above my home... its been so wet and cold here that i don't have a even a single sweet pea to brighten my gravel patch of a garden... you can see this treasury better right here!

and i had hopes of putting more time in to my new drawings this week, and to put new notebooks in the shop, but the week seems to have slipped away from under me...

the to-do list for next week is getting longer.... hope you're having a happy weekend and that the sun finds you.. :o) xx

fairs, beaches and new designs :o)

so its been a lovely weekend - a whole day of sunshine yesterday(!) we headed down to one of my favourite spots - the secretive section of coastline between brixham and dartmouth... we climbed over rocks and paddled in the water and let our toes sink deep into warm sand, before scaling the steep paths back up to brixham and tucking into fish and chips...

a much-needed bit of relaxation after saturday's torrential rain... and another super successful Handmade Arcade! thanks so much to all those who were brave enough to come out in the downpours and say hello, it was a wonderful day as always and so good to meet more lovely and very talented creative types :o) 

(here's a little peek at the autumn jitters stall, shared with Bex of ReVintage Jewellery)

had some super feedback on the new designs and notebooks, all of which will soon be available from the autumn jitters etsy shop! (i am thinking of giving it a bit of a revamp too... watch this space!) 

how was your weekend? hope the sun found its way to you too :o) xx
