A Summer tee with a pve design illustration and pair it 

oyster gray

ostrea edulis – wikipedia

While illustrating this home, I fell in love with this gray color, which reminded me of “oysters” which I heart.  One can imagine returning here after a day of errands, and settling down to a divine dinner of oyster stew served on a lovely dish with crackers on the side and some sort of frothy brew to wash it all down.   Oysters on the half-shell, oysters “rockafella”- rolled oysters….and the list goes on for all the various ways one can enjoy oysters. (my apologies to those of you who do not have a penchant for oysters!)

 Suddenly, I am loving all these gray casted tones and then the pop of the red oxblood door. 

Are you feeling gray, or could it be all the 7th gray and rainy day.  As my husband left early to play soccer, he reported, “another oyster gray day!”

four eyes

My first pair of glasses was a memorable time and point in my life.  I remember feeling like I had just added a friend to my face.  I illustrated this little girl in glasses a while ago.   She looks so confident and so smart and so happy to see.  Do you wear glasses and if so, do you remember going for your first pair?  

weekend rest

The above artwork, by Rebecca Litt has me feeling inspired to rest this weekend.  I aim to take a nap, on my bed or in our hammock.  There is nothing like sleep to make one feel rested.

Fresh white sheets, and an open window for a little breeze.  Zzzzz.  Have a restful weekend.

simply devine

When a garden is open for tour and the invitation is extended, I jump at the opportunity to take great delight in observing plantings and learning about new plant species.  I admire those who have the ability to make a garden from a small space and transform it into something divine.

For example, Michael Devine has a magic touch not only with textiles and decor, but also for the garden.  Will you look at this splendid spot!  
Can you imagine having your morning breakfast out there and then come evening turning it into a torch lit oasis with some sort of dreamy jazz music playing and a bamboo bar set with all the necessities for a summer cocktail soiree.  Just bring the bug spray and light the citronella candles.  Cheers to the summer garden!

privet hedge fund

No – silly, not that kind of hedge fund, but the kind where a shrub grows as a boundary or for a bit of privacy. I adore privet hedges, the kind that add a bit of privacy. There is something about a hedge that makes me want to peek round the corner and see if there is a game of croquet, or badminton on

upward spiral

Spiral-bound note books are handy for notes.  Here is one that I had a pve design illustration printed on and am thinking about selling these on-line too.  What sorts of notes would you keep in a spiral notebook?
