A little illu about porridge in the Family section of the Guardian on Saturday.
I've been a bit overwhelmed with work (and a subsequent feeling of a melting of the brain!) but I'll be back to regular posting soon.

I rediscovered my lost wacom tablet and have been playing around with it. Who knows where it disappeared to...the same place as most of my socks I think.

Chic chick

Wednesday, March 18, 2009
I wish my hair were this tidy. There are always a few rogue strands that refuse to follow the rest...

Beyond the Biccies

Beyond the Valley is often written about and praised on blogs in regards to their clothing...and quite deservedly so, most of it is on my wish list for summer! But it's their homeware that caught my eye this morning, the fact the I'm peckish may be the reason for this partially biscuit themed post!

Sunny stroll

It seems Spring has well and truly sprung in London so a stroll along Hampstead Heath was called for yesterday. Lots of sightings of tiny dogs waddling...

Stare off

Secretly I think gummy bears are a little evil...

A few words

Friday, March 13, 2009
By the way...I love statcounter but sometimes it leaves me bemused by the keywords that lead to my blog...

"how to draw an artichoke" and "bejeweled twit" are two of my favourites!

ps. someone at Gap inc has apparently been taking a peek...ooh, get in touch!


Just another quick note to say a big thank you to all who have left a comment. Due to being stuck under a rather large mountain like pile of work, I haven't had time to explore all of the exciting new blogs I have links to but I promise I will. I will be a commenting mad woman by the weekend :)

ps. I'll be picking a winner from the comments on Sunday so keep em coming!

Little doodles are in Liberty's! And very soon the little birds will be flying in too.
More details to follow...

Time for tea....but where?

Wednesday, March 04, 2009
Ok, so I'm impatient and couldn't hold back on revealing a little more...

Hush hush...

I know I didn't give away very much about my most recent project in this post...I'll put it down to bad photography skills.

Do these help?
A few little clues before I reveal more this afternoon...many of us crafters/fashion lovers/design addicts love it here, it's been described as a mecca by some, they've collaborated with a few people to make pretty things and they make a mean cuppa for those seeking a retreat from the hustle and bustle.
