I clearly have a picture frame addiction.

Yesterday I decided my toilet wall was to dull so I’ve added some colour.

Again the prints and frame are a mix of etsy and thrift shops

I had a second cup of coffee this morning, this sometimes leads to a jittery day of nothing but not today!

Today I rearranged the corner set of frames above m dinning table, above is the original and below is the changes, and the third is above my desk. Which I spent way to much time looking at.

The prints and pictures are a mix of op shop/thrift shop, etsy, hand made by me or straight & arrow. The frames are either second hand or picked up from junk stores.

After that time almosttaya hulked the shit out of one my squeegees I decided I’d take the Straight & Arrow approach and make my own handles from scrap timber. If these can cope with the abuse of my workshop they, they may end up for sale down the track.

What can I say, I lift…..

And I’m back from my USA trip. This post should really just be called things I was super excited to eat.

A hotdog from Grays Papaya, a bagel from Ess-a-bagel, a red velvet cupcake from the original magnolia bakery and a big mac in times square.

Straight & Arrow made this custom print and I got the card stock leftovers, I felt this frenchy had hipster undertones that needed to be unleashed

Wise words from a fictional character who truly knows how to rock a beard.
I’ve always been a huge Harry Potter fan so I thought it was about time I did some embroidery to prove it.
