Spring Windowsill

©Tony Buckingham

These fellas have been sitting on my windowsill this week. I've started to have orders for them - last night two came through for the spotty versions. I must remember to take a picture when they are finished. Spot the stone. It's amazing how odd shaped pebbles and gravel end up on our window sills!!

I have started painting the interior of my summerhouse in the last few days. The large tin of paint I found was not the milk and honey colourway for my sons nursery but "Birch" - the paint we've used in our living room. Fortunately I do like it.. it remains to be seen whether it will work well as a background for photography...

This is "Birch" with one of this weeks personalised "Sparkle Star" commissions leaning against a pot I made on a wheel years ago when I did a ceramics course.

I'm a bit worn out this evening, I slightly burnt a cake, went for a jog, painted some of the summerhouse, packed and posted some orders - not in that order: I've been up late too, tweaking my website, funny how you spot something every time you visit! It is all part of my branding course. However I will be changing things again soon- once I have worked through the course systematically and in light of what I should find out in this last week of the Flourish course. :) Big things ahead.

I have very much felt that Spring is arriving.

Hard to believe that it was like this only two weeks ago. Personally I hope that was the last of Winter...but I think last year was a bit like this!?

  3. Thanks both :)

    I can't wait until my summerhouse is in a fit state to show it off. Hang on in there everyone. I will have to ensure the garden outside is tackled next....
