After a whirlwind few weeks, Russ & I are finally back in ol' London town. I am sat in my Lovely, lovely studio (I missed you) in tights, leggings, ugg boots, jumpers x 2 and a big scarf, sipping a steaming mug of tea, I am very cosy indeed. I have changed the blog header to a snowy picture temporarily, I know all you Brits are so over the snow, but please bare with me just for a few weeks. I am REALLY enjoying it. Russ wanted to buy a Christmas tree the other day and every time I leave the house I think ' yum it smells like bonfire night' !
We wrapped up warm the other day and stomped across the Heath & any excuse to meet up with friends in pubs with log fires and fairy lights are grabbed.
Saying all that I can't quite believe our Australian jaunt is all over, it was wonderful. I was first introduced to Etsy in Sydney 3 years ago & I thought 'I'll have ago at that'. So to return 3 years on & to wander into my favourite shops & see my art work there was incredible, it makes me think anything is possible with Belle & Boo & that's exciting.
Things I will miss about Australia
Blue skies, cute house, white picket fences, places to sit on front porches, banana bread (I sneaked this one in at the airport before getting on the plane !) retro cars, this building I walked past every day, our local cinema, picking up gorgeous magazines & discovering Belle & Boo are in them & of course all my lovely friends old and new.
I am sure I will bore you with many more photos as nostalgia sinks in but for now, I am all excited about receiving packages like this
