Friday Pretties: Some art vitamins







Let Yourself Be Silently Drawn By the Stronger Pull Of That Which You Really Love.
Jalal-al-Din Rumi
Some small canvases i've worked on, using bits of vintage paper i'd stored in my drawer, and pages of an old book by french writer Colette.
Happy weekend dear ones! I can't believe how another week has just flewn by - time seems to be faster than me! At the moment i feel like time is a horse, and i don't really manage to ride it, but it gallops away with me - there, boom, friday again! Nevertheless of course, weekend is more than welcome and i can't wait to stop by at your places and have some tea!

  25. Guten Morgen liebe liebe Martina, here I am early Sunday morning, the house is still sleeping. It is just me, a huge cup of warm tea and the KidsLife! You will understand that I must be off now for some reading, looking and getting inspired. Is the card a painting from your hand? It looks a lot like your style and I love it! Thank you so much, I will be sending a lovely mag your way next week. I adore magazines, KidsLife is a great one. Thinking of you each time I walk along my coffee table.
    Have a lovely sunny Sunday, liebe Freundin. KidsLife here I come!! xxxxxx
