Hi! I saw these two books in charity shops at the seaside and I thought "you are coming home with me" they did! I love them.
I had a lot of the Ladybird books when I was little ( I still have some of them).
And the 'Home' book is quite is from 1965. I love the illustrations.
The books are quite tatty, but this is wonderful as it is a sign that they have been well read and enjoyed.

Cake Pops

Hi there! I love the look of cake pops, so I thought I would have a go at making some for my mum's birthday. I think they look like little sweet trees!

Old Books

I found these tiny books of two of the Brother's Grimm Fairytales; 'Snow White' and 'Hansel and Gretel' from an antique book fair in Whitby last month. I love Fairytales and just had to buy them! They measure 8cm x 5cms.

I also found this old Hans Christian Andersen book from a car boot stall which says inside that it is from the 1930's.


Hi! Here is some new stitched artwork from moi!
I found some old tiny picture frames from a charity shop (see below).

I took out the prints inside and made some tiny appliques which now fit snugly inside. (See below).

Playing at the Park

Here is a small selection of artwork from a new children's book I have recently completed entitled: 'Playing at the Park' by Chunjae Education Publishers in South Korea.

The storyline focuses on children playing safely at a park. Little 'alien children' which have come down from space, would like to join in but are uncertain of how to play on the rides at the playground. The children then teach them how to play correctly and safely.

I mainly used acrylic paints along with chalk pastels and pencil crayons.
