A princess and the pea moment

I love old fairy tale illustrations, aren’t they beautiful, this one is by Nielsen in "The Widows Son". I want this bed I love the big round shapes and the daisies hanging form the lights ahhh..


This is one is by Edmud Dulac in “ The Real Princess” by Hans Anderson, so enchanting.

A very long time

Well it has been a while in this time away I have mostly been lusting after these shoes...

chanel shoes

and these Chloe shoes they are so fabulous I love they unfortunately my purse strings do not reach that far, but I feel they are very 80's looking so hopefully I'll be able to pick up some vintage ones similar at a snip, I did have a little hunt around today so far no luck however it will be my summer mission!

Felt Tip Flowers

Today I got lots of new felt tips, so very exiting, so many lovely new colours to chose from I cant wait to use them all! I have found it so hard to find a nice bag big enough for my portfolio I have it various totes at the moment but on the constant hunt for something a little better so I was immensely happy when I found this the perfect portfolio bag me thinks, but will the purse strings stretch to it?
Anyway here is a trial of some of my new pens...

nice floweres

I saw I man today with the most tremendous moustache, long waxed and curled. I day dreamed about running away and joining the circus, its very appealing at the moment. I’d simply love to be the ringmaster and put my head in lions heads, or wear sequins every night whilst riding show ponies, perhaps much easier is to stop shaving and become the bearded lady, oh decisions, decisions. Well this daydream lasted some time, needless to say I love the circus, the glitz the glamour the travelling, the animals, the peculiar, and how some thing so joyful and traditional can scare so many people!

So I doodled...

I have a new job and it is sucking the life out of me so here is a little melancholy drawing, which reflects my mood feelings.

On a more positive note this evening I had a gin and tonic in the sun and ate lovely thi food. I also heard a little girl on the bus saying she was having a party with a picnic under a tree where she could play this made me happy and long for simple things.

Do you doodle?

Gosh what a week! I'm so very tired, that I think I will be watching some trashy TV in bed this eve...possibly catching up on stylista, ahh joy heehee. The only good thing about this week however is that flowers are out and blooming which is lovely feeling inspired by the spring time but still rather grumpy I drew this slightly evil looking (cat?) ...


Some things I like with doodeled hearts.


I love these dolls.

japaneeser hearts girl

This girl is so beautiful! I think I would like to doodle on my face like this! Do you doodle on your face? I scanned this years ago, it’s from a Japanese magazine but I can’t remember the name of the magazine and now it appears to have gone missing! ;0(So upsetting because the whole shoot was wonderful, I will not rest until I find it!
