What do you say when you haven't seen someone for a long time?

When I was small, relatives usually said "My, how you've grown". I've tried desperately not to say that to my young relatives but I've slipped up a few times.


It's been forever since I last blogged and the DH has started blogging himself (here). He asks me whether I've seen his latest post which is what I used to say to him, so I've been feeling that I should perhaps resume my blog. 

I need to make a few changes to update the look and feel of the thing but the good news is that there is lots to say and hopefully I'll avoid the tired clichés.

Shooting from the hip

These are just "point-and-shoot" photos - no careful composition - but shots of things making me happy right now.

Keeping busy

I always have a few projects in progress and many, many more in my mental list of things I'd like to get done. This is a snap of the current top of the pile.

Art Deco and Art Nouveau

I'm fairly certain I've written about my love of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles before. Here are some of my favourite examples of the styles.

I love the Tiffany blue

Something on Twitter made me keen on a small project which involves the Tiffany blue colour. I'm really quite excited about it. Stay tuned for more details.
