Back From The Brink

Hello. I'm back. Well, sort of. I have gone from not knowing what to post about to having a veritable plethora of things to post about, so much so that I don't quite know where to start. So I made a list and that kind of helped. I aim to work my way through it here for your reading pleasure. Thank you all for your kindly comments on my guest post over at Design Crisis, and here of course, as ever reading them makes my heart do a little sing.

So the last couple of weeks have been fun. We've been camping (twice), and generally made the most of the (limited) sunshine. I have been experimenting with some new decal paper (a frustrating mess) and I have buying a few bits and pieces here and there. Here's a little round-up to get us back in the swing. We'll start with places we've been...

Full moon rising.



Sailing boats in a race at Lyme Regis



Iris horsing about.



Strange games at a local fete (where we saw Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream infamy).



Home from home. A few days camping near Totnes.



Velvet trees by our favourite riverside spot.





A lovely boat in Dartmouth, where we saw Damon Albarn of Blur infamy, and so it seems even pop stars are staycationing (such an ugly cut and shut sort of word) these days.





Camping on a farm near Ludlow, with friendly chickens, enormous pigs and dear friends.



Big skies..



War memorial in Ludlow.





Looking at these again is almost like a mini holiday in itself. Next post we'll look at some new acquisitions. Okay?

It's good to be back.

Yay!
Welcome back, it hasn't been the same without you.
Love the washing line a la camping and all the name drops! The original hell raiser at a fete. Smashing.

I'm not sure I'd recognise Bobby Gillespie at a local fete, what an odd mismatch of concepts!
Lovely holiday shots.
Can't wait to see the new acquisitions!
