Mellow Saturday

Keeping it mellow and relaxed this weekend. Soft, gentle shades.

The past few weeks have been very busy here. My husband has had two trips abroad and we have been racing to complete my studio in preparation for something I will share with you at a later date. I have also been working with my web designer to revamp and relaunch my site. I am delighted to say that it has today gone live. I have now added  fabrics and some gorgeous keepsake boxes which are made for us here in Britain.

The weather here today is simply beautiful, what a wonderful time of year this is. Each new day brings more flowers into the garden. I think May must be one of my favourite months.

Flowers, always a pleasure. Love this building. Fading and neglected, but all the more beautiful for it. Also really like the yellow just visible in the building next to it.

Time has been running away with me recently, I just seem to be on permanent catch up. Today is the first day in weeks that I feel I can sit back and relax a little. It is only when you stop that you realise just how tired you are. My husband is in Australia visiting family, I am using the space and time to catch up on projects that I don't always have the time to concentrate on. The dynamics change so much when you are left alone. The space the other person leaves seems large and rather odd. The "link" seems broken yet one that will reform on his return.

Love everything about this. The beautiful honied coloured stone, the detailed carving of the porch and the amazing colour of the door.

I hope your week is going well and that you all have a wonderful weekend.
