It's brightening up

It's positively dreary outside today so I thought I'd brighten things up a bit with these recent ebay finds. I love this series of science books. I've had another one from the series for a few years now so I was really pleased to have found these to add to my collection. These are from the 60's and early 70's, fantastic illustrations. I will have to keep my eye out for more!

The last of 2012

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Apologies for the long post but just thought I'd catch up in one go, so here's the last of 2012. Had a fabulous trip to the South East coast. Above is Whitstable, beautiful place, yummy food and home to the wonderful Frank...

Next up, Rye. Another fantastic place, felt quite at home here. It helped staying at The Crows Nest above the amazing Lion Street Store many thanks to the owner, Sarah, for making us feel so comfortable! Check it out, they also stock prints by this fine man!
A short stop in Eastbourne on the way home.
Beautiful walk with beautiful friends in the Mendips.
Our cheeky monkey turned 1, Happy Birthday darling! (The lovely dog is by super talented Sally Nencini)
I managed to crochet Harry his first stocking, was finishing it on Christmas eve just in time for Santa's pressies!

Here's to a creative and inspiring 2013!
