Raindrops on roses & whiskers on kittens...

these are a few of my favourite things...! It's been a while since posting, my little kitty, Ollie, has not been very well so after a vet visit I've been playing nursemaid. I'm so relieved to say he seems to be starting to get better, and is being a very good boy taking his anti-biotic pills, always fun! His wee nose has got pinker again (it had gone so pale) and he's clearly feeling much more comfortable.

The Summer has arrived in full blast here, which always makes me think of Picnics, so a great time to be creating these Teddy Bear Picnic invitations. These are a custom set but I am enjoying it so much I may well make a range for my Etsy store. Here's a little sneak preview of part of it.

Last week we had a a rain burst and then sunshine which made my rambling rose look so pretty I had to take some photos, so I thought you would enjoy sharing in them with me, if only you could smell them too.

My garden is starting to come to life, with bees and butterflies flitting around and my sweet peas rambling their way through plants, more photos to come very soon. Catherine xx
