Over the weekend I finished this advent calendar mainly for Anya, who is 3, but also for my two step sons when they come to stay with us. Every envelope contains 3 chocolate coins plus small surprise for A. Stickers, beads, hair clips, crayons etc. I can't wait for her to start opening it. Boys are already 13 & 17 and although they didn't want to miss the chocolate, Christmas is not such a big deal for them anymore. But Anya loves it. We wrote a letter and drew a picture for Father Christmas yesterday, left it  by fireplace last night and to her surprise it wasn't there this morning! It's all getting exciting again through her little eyes...

Dickens & Christmas


23 November 2011

I have added a few originals to my shop.  They would be great Christmas presents and you can guarantee no one else will have the same gift. There is 6 pictures: 

1+2. What Christmas Is as We Grow Older - by Charles Dickens
3. The Holly Tree by Charles Dickens
4. Definition Of Sport - antique encyclopaedia
5. The Rules Of Ice Hockey- antique encyclopaedia
6. The Rules Of Soccer- antique encyclopaedia

They are all originals created from antique books, over twenty layers of history and love in one picture.

grass + hot pink


21 November 2011

I spent most of the last 4 days at home surrounded by boxes of tissues, drinking lemon tea and I had a lot of time to think. I planned things for next year, for my shop, gathered ideas and thoughts. There will be few items discontinued in next couple of months. So just a quick note if you are thinking of buying these, hurry up! They won't be available soon. And two of them will be these: 
Little Hearts in Grass - small + large size
Love Hearts in Hot Pink - small + large size
at the moment they are still available in my shop

This year I have been extremely well organised (in my terms) when it comes to Christmas preparation. I took these photos in late August, and some of these have been used as Christmas postcards, which I add to every order in my shop. Enjoy bright pre - Christmas inspiration.

New York


11 November 2011


We had a great time, got back couple of days ago, very tired and jet lagged but full of fantastic memories. We travelled with a few friends ( one of them was her :) and her husband. M. and him run NY marathon on Sunday and as our friend said ( it was his first one) it's better then 10 motivational days. The support was fantastic, very uplifting and loud. I was taking loads of videos, so if time allows I will try to make my NY video. We stayed in Chelsea and I took tips from this book and from Cup of Joe NY guide. I especially loved these restaurants (Freemans , Co.) Well done to M. who is a huge dreamer and achiever and huge thank you to my parents who came to look after Anya for the whole week. See you next time NY.
