Show us your plants boho artist decor

I’m a plant lover, I adore them inside and out and I love the #showusyourplants challenge, now I’ve moved them from all around the house I want the living room to be like this all the time, a jungle oasis of plant energy 🌿

Fitting everything in this past month has been tiring, I am at uni full time and still running my art biz, having lovely days out and finally going on holiday to Norway, first time I have ever been on a plane and been abroad, it was so exciting and what a magical and very clean place Norway is. I have been exploring different techniques at uni and not had very much chance to create my own pieces, I am super aware that Christmas is looming soon and I have a couple of events I am having a stall at, so I need to get making quickly!

Most of the work I have already is now on display for sale in a lovely centre of serenity, a studio which has crystal healing, yoga, meditation etc not too far from where I live.

 

I can’t believe it’s November already! seriously this year has gone super fast, some great things from October are:

When the Asda delivery arrived  he said to me “ohh are the flowers for someone special?” I said “yes,me I’m treating myself”, he looked confused and said “isn’t that someone else’s job?” So I smiled and said “if I don’t treat myself, how will I know how to treat others?”
That’s not the response he was expecting!! 😂 my beautiful flowers, £2 to give me joy for the next week or so 💗because I’m worth it and so are you!

My lamp came home, I loaned it to a charity who had a cafe in the local library along with some paintings and now it’s closed I got to bring them home again. I forgot how I love it when it’s lit up, it took me hours to make and I remember my arms aching with holding them up to tie the fabric. I’m not quite sure where to put it, but for now it can stay in the dining room.

We had lots of days where my beautiful studio was sunny and warm, I spent a lot of days packaging parcels, painting backgrounds and  enjoying this beautiful room 💗🙏🏻
I am so grateful for this space.

I did a quick watercolour illustration
I love this quote,
the word impossible actually means I’m possible, and everything you can see around you that is man made started with imagination, everything began with a dream

This day was a red tights and yellow shoes kind of day. These summery autumn days are just warm enough to wear no coat and to get the tights back out, I love the weather, such a blessing to have an Indian summer in October.

Let’s hope November is just as lovely x

Make your own dreamcatcher

I have been in a bit of a boho bliss here, I haven’t had as many orders as January, so have taken some time to concentrate on our home and get around to the creative things I have been wanting to do for some time.

Oh my goddess I am in love! I finished my giant dream catcher from a hula hoop complete with rose lights, beads, vintage lace, ribbon, wool, feathers from one of our past chickens, vintage doilies and vintage mirror beads from an evening jacket collar. It’s take me the best part of a day to make but I couldn’t be happier

 I’m also making over a cupboard in the dining room that was a fifties cupboard I have had for years and it was looking tired and dull, every time I ate my dinner I looked at it and thought it looked dreary so I put all the other millions of jobs aside and started late last night, it’s evolving and developing into something lovely. I have some gorgeous vintage embroidered ribbon and Pom Pom trim to embellish it when it’s finally finished, still a long way to go yet

Its nice to have chance to do some things just to play, but the guilt of ‘should be’ is always there, in this society we are super conditioned that we should always be doing things to make money, to get higher, to achieve more etc.
Sometimes its good to step back and just be.
