I'm having the morning to myself. Which is a rare treat.
Been pottering about doing domestic things, like the laundry and the breakfast dishes. Tidied one of my kitchen cupboards, you know that kind of thing.
And taping some little drawings and postcards up on the wall in front of my desk, it's meant to look scruffy with the masking tape, reminds me of college. The woman on the postcard is Anais Nin! I love Anais Nin. I found it at the weekend.
This is a quote of hers;
"Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country."
Blogging can be a bit like that. Throwing your ideas, dreams and makings into the ether and somehow, wonderfully getting something back.
Last few evenings, I have returned to work on my plates. Tried out some new gold decal (er, not actually pictured). I am pleased with the way they all look, but am sharply reminded that it could all go rather pear-shaped in the kiln. i hope, hope, hope they turn out okay.
I have also been looking through a couple of catalogues that plopped invitingly through my letterbox this week, Toast & Green Baby. I have turned down many corners in the Toast catalogue, but as ever, it's the shoes and boots that really capture my heart.
These boots - sheepskin lined, mmmmm. Want.
And these shoes - as pictured, in deepest violet.
And I like these.
And then, while you're about it, I might as well have these too.
Iris and I looked through the catalogue together yesterday, or rather I did beside her while she watched The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and she kept saying that the model with the dark bob was me (instead of red, I kind of went dark brown with my recent adventures in home hair colouring). Ha! I wish.
This is a good look. Yes.
Also listening to the new Phoenix record on Spotify. Yeah, check me. I'm so modern. It's quite good, not as good as Alphabetical though.
Right, I had better look busy, I'm back on duty soon! Happy weekend!
