Change in the air

image from Toast
 Can you feel it too? It is distinctly chilly this morning - bright and crisp. I like it, my nose twitches like Boodle's, I slant my cheek to feel the sun's warmth through the window. This is the moment I long for that Toast dressing gown to drape around me and belt tight.

I have been pondering my composition and colour palette ( see my previous post "Good Gourd".) I remembered these fantastically composed still life images from an old Anthropologie catalogue.They are stand out! the blue velvet ribbon, the textured sack-cloth, yes! I am inspired to continue.

 Hmm, and so this weekend shall be a kitchen table crafts weekend - some more painting and a sewing project started at Jessie Chorley's workshop to be finnished.
I am also craving a slice of gingerbread loaf and a hot frothy, milky coffee.

Whatever you are up to have a brilliant weekend.

  9. Hmmm...gingerbread. Have you ever been to Eastbourne and had tea at the Hydro Hotel? There are fancier and more expensive hotels there but the teacakes (and all the desserts) are heavenly!
