Fresh New Look

I did a bit of housecleaning on my blog to give it a fresh spring clean new look, I love the old 18 century woodcuts depicting victorian lifestyles, gardens, so I thought I would use this one for now to wash away the gray days of winter. I have a added a couple of new items to the shop a Lovely
Portfolio that I made inspired by the one used by Miss Potter in the movie, I loved it so much that i set out to make one of my own, and one for the shop of course.

I used some old calico vintage fabrics in muted shaded of peach and rose so very pretty for spring, makes for a lovely drawing tablet if you go out and do some sketching in the park, the inside is made of study artist board and I have added 2 fabric pockets on the inside for pencils and paints and papers, it ties shut with black ribbons and is quite durable and large in size.

I have worked on a few little watercolors of pretty period dresses inspired by the books of Jane Austen, and her lovely ladies in regency style dresses.
Happy dreams of spring to you, as the last bits of snow melts away and the little buds start to show.
