Some post weekend excitement

What a lovely weekend - lovely company, delicious food and just slightly too much wine. Some heated discussions; the laws of physics can be a touchy subject at 2am! But it was wonderful to have my visitors up from the Borders homeland.

And some exciting news this weekend - my sister has finally opened up her Etsy shop to sell some prints of her illustrations. And with absolutely no bias, I have to say they are gorgeous. It has been such a pleasure to watch the progression in Caroline's artwork, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. And she's already had 5 sales in less than 24 hours of being open!

I also managed to convince my very generous Dad to give me a lift to deepest darkest Newbridge, to the depot of the somewhat random delivery company that my Ixxi prize was sent to me with. 

Oh the excitement! The box itself is so lovely! Construction has begun - but more on that later in the week when I will hopefully have it finished.


  1. oh you~!

    that box really is pretty, still shocked at how small it is - can it really hold all those tiles in it!?

  2. Love your sister's work!
    I'm smitten with Ixxi too, wondering if I can convince my man that the rose would look beautiful behind our sofa... :)

  3. I am pretty smitten too, although it's taken me a lot longer than I thought to get it finished! Hopefully will get it up tomorrow and can photograph it :)
