Those printed linen cushions are so lovely. As are the jars of jam. They must be delicious, but they are definitely decorative! I always tell my children in weekends: be careful with your time, you know the time speeder is up now, unlike when they go to school!

Hi sweetest Lynn!

To many ideas I guess ;)

Modern Country said...

Oh Dear Lynn. Missed you!!

And welkome back from Sweden! Oh what a wonderful trip, love the images. You deserved it so much. To rest, to fell happy and meet good people.

You are so right, the space, the silence and the clear fresh air, and specially all the greenery. I love it too!! I would have guessed that you lived at the countryside, but out from what you told me, I guess not. The hectic way of living is not something for me. I tried it once for 6 years in The Netherlands and my body and mind resisted like nothing else. Not good at all, but this last year has been so healing!

You busy little bee :) I said it yesterday, too much to do and too little time. I am happy that you also are in a creative flow. Love that, don`t you ? But it is like our heads are turning too fast around, haha

I love your latest work, specially the handmade printing, the bird are so incredible pretty!! it makes me smile :)

Have you had the time to do something with the painting? Just curious..take your time, it will be worth it. Did you finnish the project for you mother?

And also, you are so very welkome sending a couple of words to my new e-mail address. I will send you a few words this evening.

Take care my beautiful friend,
and thanks for the recipe tip you gave me :)

You put multi tasking on a totally different level. I love those prints. I have some fabulous old French documents which I want to print onto old linen for upholstering a chair and just can't find a way of transferring the print successfully. :(

Something White said...

Dear Lynn,
I´ve been anwering all mails and messages on my blog these last 2 days. We had some family around and so I couldn´t work online too much. Thank you very much for your visit! You wrote that you sent me a mail, but unfortunately I didn´t receive it. Did you use the somethingwhite-Gmail-address? (somethingwhite@gmail.com)
So, actually I don´t know what you wrote exactly to me... :D
Could you please try once again to send a message? Thank you so much!
I do love many of your handmade items and little birds always capture my special attention :)
It´s always a pleasure to pass by here at Sea Angels!
Many warm greetings,
Marjolijn

Lynn I'm loving the direction your work is taking - the handprinted birds are so delightful. The possibilities are endless, & you are just the person to take them all up & create beauty.
