Chalet Style!

I have just spent a really lovely weekend in Switzerland (well, still here actuall, flying back to London tonight!) and with winter fast approaching, I have felt the need to hibernate. And where would I like to hibernate? In this gorgeous chalet in Courchevel in the French Alps of course! I love those stripped back wooden beams with super modern finishing touches.

Sunshine Yellow!

Sunshine yellow is my favourite colour, so imagine my delight when I saw my butterfly pendant featured in this gorgeous Treasury on Etsy. Thank you FlashForward!

Here is a quick snap of me and my sister preparing for another photoshoot for my Etsy shop (me-brown hair, Emily- blond!). I feel like I'm always trying to improve my photos, however, I think these ones have turned out too dark... any comments welcome!

A Winter's Tale....

It seems to be getting so dark so quickly in London at the monent! I really feel that not just autumn, but winter too is setting in really quickly.

It's a cold, sunny, crisp day and for some reason I got to thinking about one of my favourite artists, Ben Nicholson. I love his pale, muted colours and his technique of layering complentary colours on top of each other then a really simple line drawing of some everyday object like a cup or a bottle. I also particularly love his tree landscapes which really capture the feeling of a wintery frost in the countryside.
Here is a little montage of some of my favourites!

I am SO sorry for my total lack of communication over the last couple of weeks! A combination of a really busy period at work plus coming to New York to spend nearly 2 weeks with boyfriend have resulted iv very little time spent on my Etsy shop and on my blog.... I've missed it!

Hopefully back to normal from this weekend as I want to start posting some of the cool pictures I have taken in NYC and will return to London (sniff sniff!) on Monday night.

Hope you are all well! What's everyone been up to in the last couple of weeks?!
