So many sweet little stories hiding in the woods.
A little pit stop for a coffee & a pain au chocolat in one of my favourite cafes. I liked how the colours made this little set up almost look like it has been staged. Pretty : )
I treated the flower stall like a sweet shop and picked my favourites to make a little bouquet for my desk. Beautiful colours in these blooms.
Hello Spring time : )
I'm obsessed with these colours at the moment. And I'm also very much still learning about watercolour. I like how this musing feels like a map of my state of mind. I generally let the paints flow but tried to also experiment with putting water on the paper first and dotting colour here and there to see how it progressed. Very good for the soul.
This week I took myself away for a short but sweet writing retreat. I'm working on the second draft of a novel for 8 - 12 year olds and after having the first draft professionally critiqued last year I've been struggling to find time to dedicate to writing. Four days in wonderful Copenhagen helped me to focus. It's such a beautiful city and it was great to feel like an international student writing in cafes and restaurants. I really recommend the following lovely places to write...
I'm always looking out for little bits of pretty and these beautiful jewels caught my eye on the commute home. Autumnal colours are everywhere at the moment. If you spot a little bit of pretty pop it on Instagram and use the hashtag #littlebitofpretty : )
