New Wendy print finally completed. Oh, how sweet and sad Peter Pan is.
All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, "Oh, why can't you remain like this for ever!" This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.

New Beatnik Love print up on etsy. This print looks so good in our living room, I really love the colours. We have a stack of other framed prints we've been meaning to hang for ages but never get round to it. Must do so this week, I'm the world's worst procrastinator when it comes to stuff like that. So tired tonight... yawn...

The temperature's dropped outside, I've got a cold and with Christmas creeping in through all the nooks and crannies it's definitely the time of year for getting cosy indoors. So I thought I'd post about all my favorite delicious cosy indulgences. Starting with (almost) every girl's favorite, fairy lights...I have a terrible weakness for fairy lights that I need to keep in check. Other wise my home would single handedly drain the National Grid. I'm sure lots of people see them as tacky girlie nonsense but they are so lovely, so magical and so cheap. Probably they remind me of being a little girl, an excited little girl, thrilled at Christmas, at all the wonder and all the beauty and surprise. What's not to love?
Switch on the fairy lights and instantly create a wonderland of twinkling loveliness.
And in other non- fairy light related news there are two new prints up on etsy. I'll post photos tomorrow. Right, on with the lights, it's getting dark...
