Oh my – the weather is crazy as usual. A good week or so of blazing sunshine – now we’ve fallen back into early spring weather – blustery , chilly and lots of rain. Back to wearing boots and woolly clothes.

Today is a holiday in the Netherlands and the weather is glorious so I think I’ll spend the day out and about enjoying the sunshine and the music that is being played all over town.
Tomorrow I’ll be back at work adding to my “Wearable Art” collection . I have been adding to it over the last week or so but haven’t given it a “proper” launch, so look out for that happening sometime soon.

And if you are curious to see what I have been working on this last week, have a wee peek here. If there is one of my Polaroid paintings that you would like to see featured in this set just let me know and I’ll add it to the next group I make.

In other news, my printer has been doing overtime over the last few days making up new prints – especially lots of mini prints. I’ll be adding them to my Etsy shop over the next few days. Below is one that I’ve already listed. I am also working on a new set of photo pendants that are looking wonderful – I can’t wait to unveil them too – but I still need to source some chains before they can be listed.

( And also a little mention that my Etsy shop will be back open for a couple of weeks from today. Because I have been moving between countries it has just been too tricky to keep it open constantly. With a bit of luck I will soon be properly set up at both locations so that I’ll be able to stay open.)
I picked this collection last Monday, when I was thinking of gypsy caravans and all my possessions packed up in one little bag. I didn’t have time to post it, so I’ll hang on to it for this week’s mood as well. More on the gypsy caravan later in the week ( even though my things didn’t fit into one little bag – as soon as you start to add cameras into the equation travelling light becomes an impossible dream. )

And as quickly as the bunting was hung up, it was taken down again. I’m missing it a little, as it just looked so cheerful. So I’ve had a little stroll around Etsy for some other garlands. ( I also ordered another garland to decorate a corner of my studio, but it’s not here yet ). And if I’m still in a garland kind of mood I might make up a couple of strands from some textile tests that I did , which are not the correct size for making up into anything else. You never know what can be created out of “wrong” sized material. Did you know that a delivery of incorrect material set Cath Kidston on the path to all her small fabric products ? I may be remembering it incorrectly, but I think the material was intended for duvet covers but was cut wrongly.
Anyway, I wish you a garlandy cheerful week. And if you’d like to keep in the loop you are welcome to sign up to my Studio Newsletter, over on the left. ( And grab a few downloadable goodies at the same time).
The next cushion to make an appearance – “Three Little Maids in a Row”. This one is a particular favourite of mine because it reminds me of eating ice cream in a lovely ice cream salon in Holland. But before I ate the ice cream ( probably an impressive concoction with amaretto ice.) I had to quickly take this Polaroid.
And now the Polaroid Painting is moving from the wall onto the sofa or bed. I think I might have one made up to put in the bedroom as it is currently in a bit of a green phase and the blue vases pop nicely against that, plus the little sliver of green in the stems echoes the other greens. (In real life the colour match is a little closer). I do like this kind of fresh green and find it is showing up in a lot of places at the moment – in vases, tea towels and even on clothes.
