invincible spring ... in the midst of a seemingly endless winter . . .

It's like keeping a fireplace (within you) going. Just another log... another floral pattern. That... and 'oh so sweet' family time. That also helps to melt the wintery white.

Every dog has his day... and this bunch are having theirs today... in my imaginary garden:).

flow book for paper lovers . . .

A lovely envelop containing 'Flow Book for Paper Lovers' arrived in the mail. Exiting! As a stationery and pattern lover I think that it's a treasure trove. Cards, wrapping paper, stickers and envelopes... Oh my! Plus, my 'Wild Horses' pattern is featured in a few places. Pleased as punch:)...

Wild Tea Party . . .

If you need a break from the holiday imagery that seems to be everywhere (not that I'm opposed... but I like variety :) - you've got it. A wild tea party in paradise is as far from shovelling the drive way or shopping in the mall as you can get. Hope it gives you warm thoughts...

bring it on ! . . .

Fifteen cm of snow is what I've been promised to see when I open the curtains tomorrow morning... and so, I  feel that showing you the gift card I designed for Target is the right thing to do. Maybe you'll see it next time you are picking a few things at the big red and white store:).

llama happy . . .

It might be getting colder, it might be getting darker... and it definitely snowed today, but I refuse to be unhappy! Concentrating all my powers on happy work! How do you like my happy llama?

hello little birds . . .

Did some watercolouring last weekend. Still trying to escape autumn. Works better when I use greens:).

once upon a time . . .

Sometimes, after I read a book, it stays with you a long while. It happened with 'Stardust' (by Neil Gaiman) to me. I wanted to hold on to the magic just a little longer... and so, I made a print. I hope it prolongs the fairy tale:).

avian princess . . .

The colder the weather gets, the brighter are the colours I choose. We are going to get enough vitamin Grey in the next 6 months as it is:).

sweet semicircle . .

A little abstraction to distract me from the cold wet weather. Maybe it'll distract you too a little:).

My sweet middle daughter Margo is entering the world of two digit birthdays next week. I've made this little invitation and am looking forward to a house full of noise next Sunday:).

Eye candy for the fall season. Wouldn't rot your teeth. Wouldn't leave wrappers around. No calories either:).
