smile maker of the week #6

It’s been a while to show my 'smile maker of the week' series here, but this is so worth waiting. Beautiful Blackbird and Rose Nest print by Angela Harding. (Thank you so much Angela!) This print is one of the limited special edition of 100 that Angela kindly offered to Country Living magazine readers. The current issue features an article about her work and studio, which is also a joy to see! Whether you are birdie-minded person (like me!) or not, do pop over to Angela’s world here. It will make your heart sing for sure. x m

Lilypad gone to the show and back home with a pair of blackbirds

BCTF is always overwhelming having a mixture of excitement, nerves and fatigue. Nevertheless, thanks to all the visitors to our stand, I have received many positive comments from galleries, which I must follow up soon. 

The show is good opportunity to meet artists in person too. Here are wonderful people who I met at the show. Phiona Richards creates amazing paper sculptures and jewellery out of books. Samantha Robinson’s unique porcelain work are so tiny and adorable. (click their name to view the site) They were both very energetic and great to speak to. It was lovely to meet you both. Today was ended with a bit of hunting goodies, including these gorgeous glass earrings handmade by Catherine Keenan. So ace to see you again, Catherine. And must not forget, always a joy to see Adam Frew’s work. xm

6 April 2012


It has started with the summer-like scorching hot days followed by snow. What’s going on? Cannot pack up my woolly jumper yet. Nevertheless, seeing those tulips from our garden blooming so big makes me feel it is April. Which means that the deadline of my final assignment is creeping up. Must crack on with work. 

Have a nice Easter everyone! xm
