Wedding cake birds

One of my best friends is getting married this autumn, and I'd been rooting around for all things wedding to try and help. I have to share this delightful bird cake topper project from peoniesandpolaroids. Gorgeous!

This was the first thing I drew after my holidays. It was a quick ten-minute jobby, and I'm not sure whether I like it even, but I thought I'd throw it up here for you to decide. It's quite frightening picking up a pencil after a week off :-)

There's something in the woods...

Been away so long I thought I had to add a quick something... anything...
I really should stop rushing to put things up here, but I never learn. There's obviously more to this piece... but so far i'm afraid it's only manifesting in my head. One day, I'll get the finished thing up here and then I shall reward myself with a packet of custard creams.

Vintage 1950's Swimwear

I'm so in love with vintage swimwear. I saw a girl on holiday with the most enhanting white polka dot swimsuit. Since I got back I've been bursting to find out where she'd got it from, and after some frantic searching I found out it's from a vancouver company called Cuche . They have the most lovely pieces. It got me going on a hunt for other vintage seaside inspiration (bottom 2 images). Oh what I wouldn't give to look all lovely and vintage every day.
