And speaking of Florals...

Saw these on Krisatomic and swooned; those colours! those colours, I say! I have a real thing for botanical illustrations and these ones really get my juices flowing (sorry, that sounds horrible) - they're from 'Treasures of Botanical Art: Icons from Shirley Sherwood and Kew Collections' (by Shirley Sherwood and Martin Rix) a book that, frankly, I will be acquiring ASAP.


  1. You're page has a lovely and consistent aesthetic, and its really nice to see such tasteful and deliberate choices of imagery. Nice Job!

  2. These illustrations are gorgeous! Have you ever been into Cambridge Cottage on the edge of Kew Gardens? They have loads of delicate botanical illustrations on the walls. Beautiful.

  3. thanks for the comment! I haven't been to Cambridge Cottage but it sounds like I should definitely check it out
