More presents delivered to the Hanson household, this time from Di Foster, soldering Queen of the north! ....and she even sent a pressie for Francesca, seen modelling above...I had seen these beautiful trimmings in Selvedge a couple of months ago but never thought about creating anything as lovely as the 2 brooches that Di has made....and of course, just feast your eyes on these naughty choir boys trapped forever behind these opticians eye pieces.....more inspiration, and so little time to do all the things we want to do!

brilliant becky

O How delighted and surprised was I to receive this beautiful print from the wonderful Becky over at vintage fairytales!
I love it, the colours, the moss, and especially that gorgeous papier mache inspired!

faces of angels

Finally got around to painting the last of the angels...thought I would show you the faces as Meredith was asking whether I copied them from anywhere...I paint them from my head, making them up as I go along.....great fun especially when there is all the chaos of the weekend activities going on all around me in the kitchen!

alot of red & gold paint all over the kitchen table

At long last I have managed to get in to the christmas spirit and have spent all day painting a load of angels to wing their way over to friends far afield... have gone for a deep red ever so slightly miserable look this year as the angels from the summer are far too cheerful for this cold weather we have had!
