It's been a busy weekend. Busy in a good way. Yesterday we went back to Lancashire in the mist and drizzle and had a thoroughly enjoyable family meet-up and walk before playing in the park where I (mis)spent my formative years.

As usual I seem to be watching Joe - can't take my eyes off him!

Here he is again. I've been playing with photo editing (thanks to Annie for the links) and they made an interesting change from Photoshop...

I also picked up a few vintage bits and pieces for the craft fair. Although I may struggle to bring myself to part with this 1960s set.

The plan was to buy mid-20th century crockery and vases then put them on my stall alongside the things I've made. I'll just have to be firm with myself.

I'll be sad if this dish goes too - I love the pattern and colours.

And this little vase is sweet (but has a tiny chip in it). Actually, the '60's coffee set has four perfect cups and saucers. The fifth cup has a little chip. So I can keep that one - it has its own saucer too so that all works out.

The little nook under the stairs has become a work area as we now have a PC and it needs somewhere to live. Any excuse for an organising session.

And a moodboard making session (love that cushion). The photo is from Living etc magazine I think.

The tidiness didn't last long. Already the desk has been invaded by pots of pencils and charcoal, paper flowers, bits of lino printing and a stack of empty picture frames.

I've been printing all afternoon today and the kitchen became a temporary studio. There are now prints drying all over the place. I'll share some pictures in my next post. Hope you had a nice weekend!


  1. Great things are going to come from that corner under the stairs, I just know it :D

    Glad you're enjoying the photo editing sites x

    1. I am indeed - they're much more user-friendly than Photoshop and the effects are great too. Thanks again for the links, I'd never heard of them before.

      This little nook is a hotbed of activity at the moment. The best part is, I'm thoroughly enjoying it :)
