I have just had 2 very different, very lovely weekends.
The first was a long over due trip to Lisbon, which was equisite. If you haven't been you MUST & you must stay here Zuzabed, it couldn't have been more perfect. This was the view from our room.
The whole city is like a painting, from the pristine curtains in the shaddy chic doors. to the graffiti, which is everywhere, it is creative, vibrant, sunny & friendly.
We visited this 16th century real life sand castle, which was built as a look out for pirates......how can you not LOVE this city!!
& had warm pasteis from a cafe in Belem where the original receipe is a highly guared secret.
Peeped into wall gardens & generally soaked up the filmic scenery.
Then this weekend just gone, I hunkered down in my studio. The rain poured down and the skies growled with thunder (my favourite kind of weather for creating) & I made my doll for the 'doll project' that I was kindly asked to be part of. You can read about it here but in a nut shell, there are 10 of us involved, we have all made a doll and then every month we pass it on and add to the new doll. I LOVE my little doll, but unfortunately I can't show all of her as we have decided to reveal the dolls slowly, so it is a surprise when we receive them, but here are a few sneaky pics.
I also got around to adding these new Meet Me at Mikes badges to the shop, available here & here
