Gone fishin'

I'm on hols for a week. I'm not taking my laptop. I'm expecting withdrawal symptoms in the form of panic attacks. Wish me luck.

In other news: since this blog is all about me,me,me, I thought it would be nice to open up a little space in my side-bar to showcase some of my favourite artists and designers, a little ‘artist shout-out’ so to speak. I’m not sure how often I’ll change it but I do intend to keep it up! I’m going to begin with Mirta Vignatti. I happened upon her studio/shop in Lucca, Tuscany a couple of years ago and couldn't leave without one of her beautiful paintings. I can't put my finger on what I love about them, something to do with their naive quality and the colours. They also remind me of Mexican folk art.

  1. Enjoy your hols, and thanks for the intro to Mirta Vignatti. I adore Lucca, we stopped off their on our honeymoon in Tuscany nearly 9 years ago. I would not have left empty handed either had I stumbled upon Mirta myself.


I love getting comments, unless they are mean. Thank you!
