still, so long, sweet summer.

in light of this beautiful day, i thought i would share another fun collaboration with my little sister. she embellished this crown for me and i added the text. stay tuned for the autumn (southern hemisphere that is) crowns coming up just around the corner…

check out the rest of the seasonal series, here.

sharing is caring.

i have been SO busy this Easter long weekend (working on a new international project, soon to be revealed…!) that i never got a chance to share with you this lovely post that the even lovelier Briar put on her blog last week. we met in person a couple of months ago now; i was so smitten that i then made her a couple of arrows (soon to be available in my shop) and painted them according to this reference image she gave me for colour. i was very overwhelmed by her kind and generous words. see more here. thank you sweet sunday collector, i hope our paths cross again very soon!

i am a bit of a japanophile and once i get started on the subject, it seems i tirelessly find more about japan that fascinates me. wabi-sabi is an embracing of the flawed or imperfect. a similar philosophy- Kintsukuroi is the art of repairing damaged pottery with gold; in essence actually highlighting the flaws. there have been a few times recently that some favourite ceramics have ended up in the garbage because i thought them to be beyond repair, oh how i am wishing now that i had kitsugied them into a new perfection.
