To Be Young

Woke too early. Work tonight. I have so much to do today, but it really is a beautiful morning to be snuggled up in bed...

Anyway, I have finally finished my drawing of  Codie Young  (The first of many to come I'm sure) I'm happy with it, even though it wasn't what I initially had in my head to start with - maybe I will do a series - Codie in the city(?)

I love my best friend

My beautiful friend, Miss Emilii, knows me so well.
Along with the link she also included a little note, that made me think how lucky I am to have her a friend like her:

"If I could afford to buy my best friend a house, I would buy this for you. This makes me think of you. It is also awesome"

Perfectly hidden within it's own secret garden, it's creative charm and cosy interior makes me wish I could call this little cottage home. It is just delightful from the open deck, to the french styled doors and windows, and the cutest little fireplace ever. I am in total love.
She has definitely found my ideal house.

 The floorboards are startling against the clean and crisp surroundings. The candy green, the cream and timbered walls, and the white windows compliment each other. It just all  falls together so perfectly.

  The open living, and the quaint little fireplace is just dreamy. I just LOVE it.

 I can easily picture my easel, vintage pieces, and my art scattered throughout this wondrous little house.

The fondness blooms

I've been flipping through my ever-growing collection of Vogue recently.
I find that no matter what my mood is at the time, as soon as I pick up one of these books I find myself inspired and a quiet happiness consumes me with each turn of the page.

God, I love it. I fear though that I will soon need to make another trip to Ikea for a new bookcase solely to house my magazines...

In between life and other drawings I have started working on my Codie Young inspired piece, I'm super excited about this one and can't wait to finish it - thank goodness for 2 days grace.

Now for my most recent, influenced by my readings and by my new purchase: a jumpsuit from ASOS...
