English Asparagus, locally grown.
The scent of the roses outside my studio window.
This Liberty print.
Especially when paired with this pink linen.
And the fact that Handmade is definitely the New Black, resulting in lots of lovely new magazines celebrating crafts, makers and a gentler pace of life. Amongst the new launches, my own personal favourite - Handmade Living, in which I have a little column, What's on the Web! I am so excited to be writing this column, my chance to sing out loud about some of the beautiful things going on in this very special corner of blogland. This month I mentioned lovely Paula Valentim of Ottchipotchi, who makes me want to run away to Portugal and sink my hands in clay; and Celia Hart of Purple Podded Peas - some day I fully intend to own one of her prints.
