photo-04-10-2016-12-06-17I’ve been completely distracted by getting my new 2017 Calendars and jigsaws in and forgot to post my Weekly Snaps…which are a 2 week batch anyway! ( You can read the post about them here )

Ever since I was little, I’ve always found Autumn really busy, beautiful and exciting; it’s almost like there’s too much to fit in!

…Anyway here’s the catch up!

Sunday…with New 2017 Calendars and Shop Discount!

October 16, 2016

Filed Under : Arrangements - Autumn - colour - Shop Discounts


My new 2017 calendars are here!!!

They are now ready to order and will be ready to ship at the end of October…

I decided it was time for a re-design, which I was really nervous about, but I needed to change things partly because the postage on my old long ones was always expensive because of their size, and also because I wanted the images to be square, and well, I basically need to shake things up a bit!

Each month comes with a sort of contemplative and seasonal creative triggers, for example May encourages you to ‘Smell flowers until the scent disappears…’ , July to ‘Water the plants and listen to the sound it makes’  and November to ‘Enjoy wearing a scarf and sitting still with a hot drink…. I wanted to connect art, nature and the senses throughout the year.

Also the actual calendar format has changed so that now there are squares instead of skinny lines, and there’s space at the bottom for spillover reminders, although at the back there are sections for notes and lists.

I have also been able to make them a bit cheaper than before, and until the end of October there is a 10% discount on all orders ( to be shipped at the end of October ) with checkout code: 5FTINFAUTUMNALORDER

Below are the images in the calendar, and you can ord them in my shop .

You can reach the calendars directly here

Saturday…with Autumn leaves and flowers

October 15, 2016

Filed Under : Autumn - colour - My Garden

photo-15-10-2016-08-47-17 For about a week or so every October, just before the frosts, wind and rain, my Virginia Creeper literally makes my garden glow, and the late flowering nasturtiums are such a welcome compliment of colour…I love how each flower has its own personality, and I always get more new colours with every year.

The first frost and one windy day will demolish all this vibrancy and I will then have to brace myself for Winter…hopefully there will be a few weeks before photo-15-10-2016-08-42-46 photo-15-10-2016-08-45-23 photo-15-10-2016-08-44-14 photo-15-10-2016-08-22-30 photo-14-10-2016-15-25-05 photo-15-10-2016-08-39-25 photo-15-10-2016-08-40-49 photo-15-10-2016-08-30-17 photo-15-10-2016-12-44-59 photo-15-10-2016-08-30-51 photo-15-10-2016-08-33-40 photo-15-10-2016-08-34-18 photo-15-10-2016-08-34-54 photo-15-10-2016-08-35-07 photo-15-10-2016-08-35-52 photo-15-10-2016-08-36-24 photo-15-10-2016-08-36-52 photo-15-10-2016-08-37-50 photo-15-10-2016-08-38-17 photo-15-10-2016-08-42-03 photo-15-10-2016-08-42-25

photo-04-10-2016-09-39-01Having eaten my boiled egg breakfast, I felt I needed more inspiration and realised that I hadn’t had a proper contemplative look around the garden for a while…so I did!photo-04-10-2016-09-39-53Autumn is taking hold at the moment not only with colour but also with it’s natural mess; the drying out, the fading, the scattering, the seeding…and just it’s general sense of slowing down and knitted textures…photo-04-10-2016-09-36-43 photo-04-10-2016-09-36-22 photo-04-10-2016-09-37-09 photo-04-10-2016-09-38-20 photo-04-10-2016-09-40-18 photo-04-10-2016-09-41-00 photo-04-10-2016-09-41-45 photo-04-10-2016-09-42-10 photo-04-10-2016-09-43-13 photo-04-10-2016-09-44-40 photo-04-10-2016-09-46-03photo-04-10-2016-09-49-55 photo-04-10-2016-09-49-43 photo-04-10-2016-10-06-05 photo-04-10-2016-10-09-06 photo-04-10-2016-10-23-04 photo-04-10-2016-10-33-43 photo-04-10-2016-11-21-14 photo-04-10-2016-12-06-17

Friday…with Winter Workshop Dates

September 16, 2016

Filed Under : Arrangements - Autumn - Brighton - colour - My Home - Winter - workshops

photo-16-09-2016-17-39-53I am always, always surprised at how long it takes me to organise what seems like something very simple, and then always even more amazed when I think I’ve actually achieved it…but at least now there are tickets available for my Christmas Workshops in Brighton, even though at the moment it seems miles away!

If you’d like to come you can book a place here, and also have a look at my Workshop page here, and also do feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions at

I only have a small place here, therefore tickets are very limited, so if you miss out and would like me to run either a one to one or a small private workshop, please just ask and I can always try and sort something out.

This year’s Christmas workshops will be a little different from last year’s but you can have a look at this post from last December to get a feel for things…
