Hot Summer!

Don't you just love how hot colours look in the sun? It's unfortunately not something I get to see very often living in England but oranges and turquoises are just amazing in summer! Don't get me wrong, I think us Brits do understated elegance very well indeed, but sometimes a zing of Valencia orange or tropical blue can't be beaten. I found these old music score sheets in a second hand shop a few weeks ago with Lucie (I found the books there, not Lucie, can't put a price on her!) and have just been gawping at their colours since.  Then I bought a pair of bright red hand-blown glasses in a charity shop this week (one pictured) and it reminded me to make something of these bright colours. 

These ones are now in the shop.

Hi Anna,
Jealous of your thrifting!
I always enjoy reading your blog :-) so please accept the Lemonade and Lovely Blog awards from me, to pass on if you feel so inspired! Susie

Anna- thanks for using one of my favorite color combinations! It is like the blue bowl that I just got for $1 and filled with oranges...
anyway, I couldn't find your email address anywhere but wanted to show you this pick from flickr:

hope you were able to sew your go go boots to your tights! Sheesh... I could hardly believe my eyes!

I just bought one of your lined paper pencil cases and I love it. Your art is pretty lovely as well. Keep it up.
