Something Lovely.

This week I have found tiny moments to take mental snapshots of fleeting moments in our daily life. I haven't rushed to get the camera at every opportunity. We've had some wonderful days and I have just allowed them to wash over me. There is a certain freedom in that which I am enjoying, and am grateful for. Already I find the camera creeping back into my hand and that's good too. I need the balance.

So I thought this might be an ideal time to get back to Something Lovely.

These prints are by Ashley Goldberg, and you'll find them in her Etsy shop here. Her work is sweet and lovely and winsome, and reminds me of certain childhood book illustrations that I loved.

This first one I might just have to buy. Maybe because it reminds me of Jay and me! It really does!

There is a certain melancholy to her work which appeals to me.

Check out her sweet blog Kitty Genius which also features her newly opened stall in an antique market in Portland OR where she lives. It's very cool and it makes me a teensy bit grr about how lame we are in this country when it comes to markets.
We're getting there I suppose!

I love the look in their eyes. As though they are thinking secret thoughts we know nothing of.

Wow, these are wonderful! Remind me v much of the work of both Anke Weckmann and Carson Ellis which you can find in my links I think :)
Your week's pics are fabulous as ever! Love the instruments!
Lots of love from the orchard where the wind is rocking us about!

PS- something odd just happened in your comments box thingy... I started typing and it was all going backwards!!! Had to refresh to make it go the right way again!
