I am very much loving Vessel Wednesday. I love how it gives me a simple task each week to complete. I have been really happy with the photos I’m taking for it. Thanks to Carson for thinking up such a brilliant idea! Today’s image is of a lilac porcelain bowl by Mud Australia. It is my absolute favourite item ever. In fact I’ve never actually used it – just carted it around from one side of the world to the other and back. As of today it’s officially a fruit bowl for organic granny smiths. : )
Thank you all so much for visiting and saying hello! I hope I have been and visited everyone who’s left messages here – but if I’ve missed anybody I’m terribly sorry – please give me a prod!!
My new little label I’m working on is called Little Orchard. It came about because people simply cannot say, let alone remember, Anknel and Burblets. (try looking away now and spelling out anknelandburblets.com). For those of you who are wondering, Anknel and Burblets are my childhood fairies. I’ve many stories to tell of all the fun and exciting things we made and got up to – but that’s another post altogether.
So, which typeface do you like best for using in the logo ?
Little Orchard is the chosen name because we are turning our place into a little orchard – with heaps of fruit trees and a (small) meadow out the front! We’re also putting in a big vege garden and I’m going to grow aromatic plants for culinary purposes and making my own essential oils and hydrosols. It’s so exciting being able to do all of this now. I think having children is such a wonderful thing to do at this time in life.
For the shop I’m beavering away on designing some fabrics, sewing things and finishing my aromatherapy diploma so we can officially dispense the magical Anknel and Burblets potions. We’ll have hairclips and girly things by Lotte Lello too. And of course some yummy butterfly prints. Yay I can’t wait till it’s all ready – I am just brimming with ideas and excitement!!
Kevin was off work ill today so he looked after Astrid while I finished sewing our His ‘n’ Hers shopping bags – pictured above. Now, is it strange that I just want to line everything?! I am totally doubling my workload but I am not sure I could manage to have an unlined bag anymore. Now I have my wonderful new sewing machine I could just sew all day!
I will leave you with a photo of our back lawn early this morning in beautiful Autumn light. Hope you all have a wonderful week : )
