I've been planning to show you a few pictures from SURTEX for a few days now... but this darn cold I brought back from New York was making me less super:(. It's been such a good trip and such a good show this year.

odd encounters in NY . . .

Well, I have a feeling you weren't expecting this post:)... but, before I go into how Surtex went I'd like to 'show and tell' you my little encounter with Terry Richardson (the rockstar of photography) in Manhattan last Saturday. At first... I forgot my name, his name and where my tongue is located. Fortunatly, a friend who was with me asked Terry to pose for a photo. Phew, now I have this odd meeting documented and shared:).

leaving for surtex . . .

Leaving for New York this morning. It's going to be an interesting weekend! Looking forward to meeting people, talking illustration, good food, drink and crazy taxies:). If you are attending - drop by and say hello:).

put it in a vase . . .

These really are the only plants I have ever been able to grow. They don't need watering, sunshine or dusting... and, therefore, are perfect plants! Also, they come with their own shelf. How's that for convenience:). You can find them here.

happy mother's day!

I know I'll wake up on Sunday to hand drawn cards and paper flowers... maybe even real flowers... and  a whole lot of love. Something to look forward to:). Nothing makes me happier than my girls. I'm wishing you a Happy Mother's Day Sunday with this bold floral pattern!

Berries & Spice . . . and everything nice

These colours work on me much like the ginger in japanese restaurant. They cleanse the palate for calmer, more easy going pattern. I have high hopes for this kitchen pattern. Would love to (one day) wipe my hands on this pattern... in my kitchen:).

wild woods . . .

So, the woods aren't really that colourful in May... and the squirrels aren't pink ... but, who wants to be in reality all of the time anyway? You are here to escape the greyness.

blue braid & red berries . . .

Just wanted to share with you my love for Rorstrand ceramics and dessert. These blue plates make just about everything look delicious:).

green ducks and pink foxes . . .

Sometimes, the best colour combination comes later. I see it better if I step away... take a month long breath... and look at it with new eyes.
