hortus noctis
it has to be said that I do love vintage fabrics and to be working with them again is pleasurable ♡

studio re-plantation to make space for market shennanigans...... sorry paper and ink , I will be back as soon as I can
my market stall on saturday (featuring little duck egg blue top that I customised with a victorian collar (sold I am glad to report)
I have been away from my dear blog for too long .
It was my first day back to the market on saturday and that makes for a lot of extra work !
It went well and I feel this year I will be able to balance it all a little better ...studio time , preperation of market wares and such , oh and cycling , walking the dogs and home life too (really its no problem , shes says in a wobbly voice )
So many lovely things are happening at the moment I feel very lucky indeed .
Last friday an artist that I have huge admiration for , for her work, her industriousness,her vision,her support and her enthusiasm etc ...cendrine rovini , featured me on her blog hortus noctis as an artist she likes (I can tell you all , that it meant a lot to me ♡♡♡ )
I planted lots of bulbs yesterday to celebrate mothers day and the new moon....and to just to get on with it too !!
It was nice to meet an italian artist at the market who bought a little box set of the flower fairies books from me , she is doing a thesis on this area and this image by amelia jane murray is for her . (and of course you my lovely blog friends )

Lovely post, Jane ~ I wish I could attend the market where you sell ~ I love that blouse! I used to sell at different markets and I miss it, the area where I live now has a rather shabby one with poor attendance ~ but I so miss the atmosphere and the talking with the people and hearing stories ~ hard work but so worth it. Fun to see part of the artful array in your studio, too. Happy day to you!

i wish for the same things as shayna. to visit you at market. your world looks so enticing. and although i am sure it's hard work-the outcome for us who are lucky to get a glimpse-so worth it. thanks for the inspiration, jane:)

It is a wonderful part of my life (markets ) and always have been ,I am thankful for all they have given me ....in a funny way , I probably wouldnt make my drawings with such urgency without the market ,which has to be done .... !!

Love the studio images- good luck with your market days! It's tough to manage it all-but it sounds exciting too- like when meeting a new artist friend- I wish I could come and visit you there-I really do-
