Boy oh boy

Boy, I am messy. I should clean up my paint boxes. But I was too busy painting a boy. Still lots of lettering to finish, and 2 large lettering designs have sat lonely in the cabinet.

I'm afraid it will have to wait a wee bit longer, since I must go and paint the twins bedroom this afternoon. 

I have been obsessing about buying a cake stand these last few days, but am not sure what I am looking for. I don't make my life any easier do I. 

Off to paint. Again. 

Goodness to you! x


  1. He is such a cutie pie! Oooo and I like cake stand buying kind of obsession :-)

  2. Haha...you should see my paint box...I can't remember the last time I cleaned it out...the messier the better?
    LOVE your Boy!
    Have a great day...it's raining cats and dogs here today!

  3. It's all work in progress.

  4. Gorgeous boy with gorgeous socks. Kim :)

  5. seems like a great idea
    to be messy
    when something amazing emerges
    like this huggable boy!
    have fun finding
    your cake stand!!!

  6. Lovely boy!
    I think yours it's a good obsession ;)

  7. I love your style! Would be great to have a book with fairy tales pictured by you!
    I also read NieNie..that blog is so moving for me..it teaches me how to appreciate life we've got.
    take care
    thank you for inspiration

  8. he is adorable (funny, my hair looks much like this when i wake up in the morning......)!! enjoy your painting projects.....both on the paper, and the walls!! xox, :))

  9. I have wanted a cake stand forever. The sort with three tiers so that (in my head) I can have old fashioned tea parties with cucumber sandwiches and cakes....if I ever had time that is! Good luck with the search - if you find a good one let me know!!

  10. what a sweet illustration! such talent! be careful with your lovely cake stand thoughts. i bought one years ago and now.....i have a few to spare;) they are so pretty, aren't they?

  11. Lovely painting! i know what you mean I always seem to give myself loads of jobs as if I need to run on adrenaline all the time gggrrr. Cake stands, oohhh I have been looking too, will post you some links if you like?

  12. A cute boy in progress~love your style.

  13. Cute boy!
    "Snips and snails,
    and puppy dog tails,
    that's what little boys are made of"!

  14. I love cakes stand too ! Recently found a cutie which is in my kitchen. A rustic Italian two tier 1960's (i think)arrangement, I love it and must blog about it ! Hope your little Droste tin arrived safely?

  15. I am always coming across tiered cake stands in my vintage rummages - next time I see one, I'll take a pic on my phone for you & I can go back & get it. Just as long there's cakes for tea when I come round! x


Thanks ever so much for sharing your thoughts!
