Hello! Just a very quick post today. We are knee-deep in prep for my ma's wedding on Saturday so I gotta get back to making 100 profiteroles and pesto (not to be eaten together...!) 

These photographs were, despite their sunny appearance, taken in October. It was an unusually bright Autumnal day. My mum and I spent some time trawling the last car boot of the season and picked up some marvellous bargains; a great gold hand-painted pot and curtains with a lovely daisy pattern which reminds me of the Swiss mountains. The flowers are my favourite in the world; anemones. 

We took the pictures for my feature in Little Thing magazine, they're probably my favourite of the set. I'm particularly keen on the orange, pink, red colour way in my ensemble, it was also a particularly lovely day so I feel like they beam good vibes. For the more observant among you, you may notice that the dress & shoes featured in my last post too. I promise that the next post will feature a completely original outfit! 

I have lots going on these next few weeks; first the wedding and then prep for Gilding the Lily at The Glorious in Exeter, it'll feature new work from my mum and I and opens on the 13th February (just in time for!) I still have several canvases to resin, prints to make and so forth so I may be dipping in and out of bloggyland. However, I'll be shooting for another project next week so those photos will definitely make it up here. Hope you all have a very happy week! Please think of me running around whisking, mixing and chopping and say a little prayer to whoever your chosen deity is.
