she said... a little friday something...

Here is yet another print that needs to be added to my wish list. (Although my flat is seriously running out of free wall space.) I stumbled upon Esther Aarts a dutch illustrator on a slice of shaks  and immediately loved her work. Quirky, whimsical and beautifully done. What is not to like.

And for anyone who knows me tea time is a pretty big deal in my world, when its time for dinner I have little interest in anything else, so this is just the perfect print to hang in my kitchen.


Even though the artist is based in the Netherlands their work has a very British eccentric feel.  The more I look the more I want everything on their online store, so this is warning before you check it out.

she said...a little friday something... or three

It has been a long week and its not over yet. I am working tomorrow which kind of adds insult to injury to what has already felt like a long 5 days. So for a little pause... here is a little Friday wish list of things that might make my next working week a little easier or at the very least prettier.

love these super cute notebooks from Darling Clementine 

Beautiful floral coasters from Rifle Paper Co

Mugs from Magpie, got to love a squirrel.

he said... perfect, just what I needed

Just the other day I was grilling up some tasty asparagus on the BBQ, the problem is that it is quite fiddly turning each sprig over one at a time and often find myself dropping the odd one through the grill. Amazingly today I came across these grilling clips, it looks like the perfect solution to my middle class issue!

she said... a little Friday something... Hammade bunnies

I saw these yesterday and loved them so much that I had to share it with you.  These swimming bunny cards from Hammade are super cute ( I am such a softie for bunnies) and rather timely with there Olympic feel. I'd give that bunny a full 10 points for that dive.

set of 4 cards £8.95

The designs also include a bouncy bunny, a lawn mowing pig and a horse watering the garden and if you love the design so much you don't want to send it away with the card, they are also available as prints.

prints £32

he said... familiar or foreign?

Just seen this watering can by designer George Coffin and I think I like it. its a shame the hosepipe ban in the UK is about to end!
In this range called Familiar/Foreign, George has created everyday familiar objects with an unfamiliar twist to them. Another interesting piece in the range is this door wedge/walking stick.

she said... pickle me this...

Looking for some new art work (that I don't need) I found this super cute print by Brooke Weeber on Society 6, it made me smile as it reminds me of my fridge where there are more jars of pickled things then anything else, by a long shot. Not sure what this says about me, maybe I need to clear out my fridge or get a healthier diet? But what sort of home would I have without a stash of pickled cucumbers?

And then this turned my smile into a giggle... I would explain but you should just watch the video below. Something to make you laugh on a Tuesday (or whatever day you happen to read this)

she said...sangria, tapas, seasta, it's Sevilla

I have been meaning to share these photos for the past few weeks as I recently returned from the most lovely weekend in Seville.

This was my first trip to the Spanish city, I went with my friend Emma who would be celebrating a birthday whilst away.  It was a bit of a last minute decision (so not much research or planning took place,) and I wasn't sure what to expect but as well as the Sunshine (oh the sunshine!) manchango as a staple dish and ridiculously cheap yummy wine its setting its also stunning.  It's fair to say I am now and big fan of Seville. 

I think I ate my body weight in manchego and chorizo and I am not even sorry. Its fair to say I always have an appetite, some might say grazer, whatever you may call it (constant eater) the continuos supply of tapas was perfect holiday food for me. It means you can constantly eat and as it's part of the culture its guilt free, when in Rome....

When choosing a tapas bar it had to have meat hanging from the celling, as standard. 
The city was perfect for mooching, one of my favourite past times and a good activity to do after all that eating. Even though it was busy with coach loads of tourists visiting the main sights it was pretty easy to escape and find little streets to explore where you were the only person to be seen.
main square, loved the colours.

tour guide Emma, this girl seriously knew had to navigate the windy streets, if left alone i'd still be looking for our hotel. 
love these neat trees at the Cathedral.
beautiful colours, especially the sky!
tiles all round the city just added to my obsession. 

bull ring, but way to squeamish to go to watch a fight...
so just appreciated the street art instead.
all over the city there were these amazing lilac trees, could get enough.
happy feet, free in the sunshine.
birthday girl enjoy breakfast on the roof of our hotel. not bad for a Monday morning.
and just to prove I was there, a snap in a motorcycle wing mirror.
