Whims And Fancies Is Moving

We are moving house tomorrow!  Still a lot to do, but I am as prepared as I can be at this moment.  Most of my atelier is packed up.   I am literally working out of a box right now.  In midst of packing boxes, I worked on creating a kitchen-themed print.  More on that in a bit. Lets just say peaches have opened up a whole new world for me.

 

 

 

 

I did sneak in a most spectacular camping trip somewhere in there.  More on that next week on this month’s Wandering Camera.

 

 

 

 

As I was packing away, I looked at my doll.   Because I was always more interested in books, pens, paint and paper, this is the only doll I ever had.  She was really more of a companion of an only child growing up in a house full of grown-ups.

I took some time off from packing yesterday. I gave her bushy hair a good wash and brushed it thoroughly.  Then I put her in an old autumn-coloured dress.  As I never got into sewing as a child, I was always glad when my grandmother or aunt would make her a new dress out of fabric remnants.  Only 3 of those dresses survived.  This is one of them.

 

 

 

 

30+ years later, I still haven’t stitched buttons on this dress.  Made me chuckle.  Almost everything has been packed away, but I found a package of book-binding needles on my desk, and a ball of yarn.   That is the full extent of my sewing this week.

Now she is ready for the move as well.

Back to packing again.  I dumped out my cabinets on the floor.  Some of these are new recruits, some I have had since I was a child, and some from in between those times.  Little Penguin Polaris and his other penguin friends are stowed away now too.

Now back to the peaches.  For the first time in my life, I tasted peaches that are not from a tin. Due to severe food allergies I can’t eat most fresh fruits or veggies. I still had to bake these, but I was so happy that I had to paint this.

I wanted to share the joy of my being able to eat proper fruit with you.  Sweet Peaches kitchen themed print is now available on my Etsy shop.  Won’t it make a wonderful gift for a baker or a gardener, or simply for your kitchen as a reminder of the summery fresh fruit fragrance?

 

See you next week on Wandering Camera!

Wandering Camera – Old York Street Light

Old York Street Light On Etsy

 

Hello Everyone!  Welcome to this month’s Wandering Camera.  Before I continue with today’s post, I have something personal to share.  After looking for a house that we can call home for a very long time, my husband and I finally found one a couple of weekends ago.  All things are now set in motion and hopefully we will be moving by mid to late next month.

 

 

 

 

I took this photo when we went to see the house.  It has a beautiful backyard with very old Ash trees and a giant Redwood tree.

 

 

 

 

I am also working on a sewing project that I have had in my mind for a long time.  Carol at Just Let Me quilt is hosting  Witchy Stitchy Blog Hop for Halloween, and this will be just perfect for that.   Here is a sneak peek!

I would love to have an old wrought iron street light placed somewhere in the new house.  I am very fond of them.

I love these lights hanging from the brick walls of pubs or cafes in old cities, welcoming people inside after a long countryside walk or to just relax a little by the fireside after travelling a long way.  They somehow fit in both urban decor and medieval decor with ease.

Not surprising that I found myself painting one such street light hanging above a door.

I enjoyed painting the weathered walls, specially the bricks.

York is such a lovely historic English city that both of us came up with the idea together of calling this painting Old York Street Light

This Yorkshire-inspired art print would be nice for anyone who loves England and Britain as well as people who love old European architecture prints.

I now have prints of this painting available on my Etsy shop.  I would love for you take a look.  As most of my artwork is travel-inspired, I am sure it would make a wonderful travel lover gift too.

This old street lights invokes thoughts of not just travelling, but also art, history, architecture and stories from medieval times.  This print would be lovely for a book lover – anyone who loves to travel through pages.  I can’t wait to hang this in the new house by my books.

 

Thank you for all the wonderful comments, and for sharing your photos with me. I love visiting you and reading a bit about your world, where you have been visiting and what you have been creating.
