What an amazing week.......

My Jeanne d'Arc Living arrived from Camel and Yak

    Filled with amazing ideas, and suggestions I never get bored with it...................
                                                      Gorgeous lighting.................
ideas for colour palettes and furniture treatments...............

I'm starting making my Christmas crackers and presents........Inspired by my classes with Jessie Chorley
just can't wait to do her work shop November.......

I found this at the car boot Tuesday, meter's of fabulous French fabric in two shades of the same pattern
must have been huge curtains.....

The sun is shining I have tucked a blanket and some sandwiches into a small bag with my sewing and my lovely new magazine Jeanne d' Arc Living and I am heading for a soft mossy spot in the park near the river. The decorators are in at home finishing painting our repaired  flooded back kitchen so all is well with the world, well just for today.. but then its only today that really matters isn't...............
I hope your today is the best it can be

Hi Lynn,

Your French fabric looks beautiful! Hope you had a lovely day outdoors. It was gorgeous weather in Holland too.

I wish I could afford every Jeanne de Arc Living magazine. It is by far the best...there is nothing else like it. I am reading last years Autumn issue and waiting to purchase the November 2011 issue. Your blog, studio, quotes, artwork are all gentle inspirations for my artists heart. Sitting on the side of the river in a mossy spot is my idea of bliss. sea kisses to you friend. ox
