A Pocketful of Words

Just completed, this large vintage / reclaimed leather journal - 
it was a feat, and it's delicious, if I might say so myself.

New Creations

A rather-flighty-blogpost, 
but here are some new creations that were born this weekend.

Quite a bit of heavy rain and some good studio time were spent.

Clicking on each title in bold will take you to the listing in my Etsy store.

Beautiful archive text paper, stained, with vintage ink stamps...

Winged creatures....

The Piscean

I know, 
I posted this one a little late, 
as Pisces is now over........ 
but, here it is, all the same.

A delightful little thing, this one.

Writing, Borrowing & Autumn

It's been a long time since I posted - 
and I have good reason - 
my computer died.

As they do, (when you most need them).

In the back of my mind, I often wish I was not reliant so much on a computer. Perhaps my thoughts of these things, made it finally give up. I have known it was going to lose itself, as it has been showing many signs of wear and tear. I chose to just let it tell me, when enough was enough.

So when the day came, I felt almost indifferent to this crash. 
I can still retrieve my documents, which is most important.

A new computer is in the works; meanwhile I am borrowing screens. 

Borrowing programs. 

I've managed to fill up the remaining half of my journal with hand written black ink, since the beginning of February. I now have no journal, so will be on the look out for a book to write in. I sit each morning before this view, and write with my espresso. 

Writing is good. Let it out - anything will do.

I bought some watercolour paper and have created a new sketchbook,

And another, 

More are in the making,

The last words I squeezed into the final space in my journal were,
'Autumn is upon us'.

I relish in the chilly mornings,
 cosy evenings and mugs of tea. 

Until my next post.

an amalgamation of interesting vintage, 
antique & reclaimed materials.
