R & R in Devon

I spent our much-needed holiday in Devon relaxing, spending time with my husband and daughter, beach-combing, reading, rock-pooling, dodging the rain and eating too much!
I also spent the week with my my camera around my neck. Instead of rushing around I was looking - and properly looking - not just fleeting glances at everything as I rush around absorbed in my hectic timetable (which is the usual case). It's so important to look around and I was determined that even though I switched off from work for a week I would switch on my mind to seeing the patterns, textures, colours, type and everyday inspiration going on around me.

I also couldn't resist a photo of the lovely cream tea (complete with tea pot and tea cosy) we had in the gardens at Periwinkle Tea Room, Silworthy.

We finished off our week with a [contrasting] brief stop in London to visit family. Sunday morning was a visit to Columbia Road Flower Market and morning coffee at Lily Vanilli's - a great way to spend a Sunday morning.

Don't forget Dad!

Don't forget your Dad on the 16th June. All Father's day card designs are in the shop and seeing as I've been super slow at updating my shop with my new designs (and because the sun is shining - still!) I'm doing free shipping on Father's Day cards for this weekend (UK only I'm afraid). Snap them up now!
