Sunshine and Surprises

At last, it seems we have more sunshine and it feels like Summer's arrived on a nice warm breeze. So warm that we've had to have the fan on in the office. Yay! I love it. Warm sunshine. I guess I must be an all Seasons kinda gal. I love each season as it arrives. And Summer really feels like it's here.

And I got a wonderful surprise on my desk this morning. My sweet hubby bought me a book "19th Century Fashion in Detail". And I gotta tell you, it's utterly lush. The photos are simply stunning and it's a perfect reference for my texturing work. Incredible details as well as interesting facts about the history of costume in that era. I now want to get the other books in that series.

Oh and as if that wasn't enough, he's also booked us a week away in Cornwall. My childhood home. Where I grew up. I haven't been there for years and I'm so looking forward to it. Can't wait. It's a world away from the rest of England. I love Cornwall. We've got so much planned for the week including going to St. Ives to be in the middle of the hubbub of a fantastic art community. Oh and St. Michael's Mount at Marazion. And much more.

Remember that rose I took a photo of, just coming into bloom? Look at it now. So beautiful. I love this soft colour. In just a day, it's come into full bloom. Isn't nature wonderful?!
