I live with my husband and two beautiful dogs, who run our lives and sleep on our sofas. I am an artist,teacher, designer,printmaker, photographer, intuitive, writer, reiki Master, teacher, mum, auntie,wife and holistic therapist: not in any particular order!
Whilst walking in the peaceful countryside of Northamptonshire and Leicestershire, England, and more recently Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, I take photographs of the wonderful countryside and moments in nature around me. Inspired by an image, I begin to create a poem which hopefully will inspire others and give a glimpse of the wonder of the spirit.
I hope you enjoy my Moon ramblings. Namaste

I have been slowly renovating our Victorian farm worker’s cottage, in the village of Cople in Bedfordshire, England, with the help of my husband and talented local artisans. My husband mainly focuses on designing our third of an acre cottage garden, which used to be mainly a large vegetable plot for at least 50 years. He has lovingly kept the old fruit trees and buhes as well as the many old varieties of plants and shrubs. My plan is to learn how to sew my own blinds, cushions and curtains, using my mum’s Singer sewing machine which is as old as I am and is in perfect working order. I am looking for faded cottage style vintage, old linen and cotton fabrics and plan to print my own fabrics. As you will see from my photo above, I have begun a long affair and new passion, to design and reupholster second hand vintage and antique furniture, purely for our cottage. So far I have completed the fireside chair seen above, for my husband’s Christmas present and an Edwardian Bergere settee.
I forgot to say that our dogs thoroughly approve of the newly upholstered fireside chair! She blends in perfectly!

I love printmaking too when I get inspiration from nature during one of our walks in the surrounding countryside.
I hope you enjoy my blog and my sister blog ‘Tales from Brown Hare Cottage’.
