Illustration Friday -Tea



Nothing Warms Like a Cup Of Tea


Im going to have so much fun viewing everyone's illustrations as Tea is one of my favourite drinks (and a morning necessity) but I also love how the word 'tea' brings up such wonderful feelings in everyone

Illustration Friday - Song

What a great topic!
I love movies that break out in song at any chance (Moulin Rouge, Sound of Music, Wizard of Oz) but when I thought of the topic 'song' i kept imagining in my mind the Greek Sirens Pisinoe, Aglaope and Thelxiepi - from the ancient world of Greek Mythology. I imagine their songs to be sweet and eerie luring all the sailors into their trance.
The myth states the Sirens to be part bird part human but they are also portrayed as part fish part human.

Illustration Friday - Simple


Life's SIMPLE pleasures

For me, its a cup of milky tea in a pretty tea cup and a good novel

One step Closer to being a Domestic Goddess....

I finally won a copy of Nigella Lawson's 'How to be a Domestic Goddess' on ebay and it arrived Thursday morning all the way from UK!
Ive been trying to win this for close to a year but kept getting outbidded and I recently got inspired by Loobylu's blog www.loobylu.com with her posts about the book and baking so Im thrilled to finally own a copy - Ive been savouring every page the past two nights and Ive been reading the introduction of each recipe - Nigella words are so expressive and written with such passion that it makes you want to bake bake bake all day long........
ive already made the Burnt butter brown sugar Cupcakes and they were so fluffy but dense and delicious!! Perfect!!!

Even Teddy Has his favourite chair - watercolour pencils

This week's sure made me look at chairs around me and think of the hours we do sitting on them!

I love old tatty armchairs that make you want to curl up, grab a throw and get lost in thoughts or deep in a book
