17th April ’17: Chocolate & purple

👜☂️🐻🔮What’s that? You’re sick of chocolate, you say? In truth, me too…but I don’t think I’ll EVER have my fill of these delectable chocolate brown @penguinclassics books. This is one of my ‘brown challenges’ – taking a colour I’m not hugely, massively keen on on its own and turning it into something I can love and cherish. Here is brown with purple, and I don’t know about you but I think they seem to be pretty content together. The lustreware vase with bluebells on it (containing my beloved @crafterscompuk colouring pencils) is from my family’s farm in Cardiganshire in Wales where I spent many a childhood holiday. It was where my great aunt and uncle lived and it was crammed full of Victorian and Edwardian gems, including massive wooden beds piled with feather eiderdowns. Even back then, I was transfixed by the beauty of these things. It was as if time had stood still and I loved it (I also used to wash in a tin bath in front of the roaring open fire, so back-in-time was the whole experience). See you anon, lovely folks.
