~ dusty blues & silver greys ~

Hello dear friends
from our ~ wishes corner ~ and part of our home which serves as the shop's vitrine!
The collage below is made mainly from pictures taken these last days,
 and pictures of prints which have been recently listed.

Today has been a quite relaxing day @ home, 
with lots of time for dealing with prints and shop issues.
I adore days like these...
the sun has also made an appearance,
a very welcome change to the last, grey and rainy days.

A day of printing, cutting and placing the new prints in the frames,
 in order for them to be photographed
and eventually stand happily on the shelves of our pretty shop.

 I'm absolutely pleased as we have tried three new, 
different qualities of thicker paper, 
and all are really good.
We'll have to decide on which is the best of the best and  proceed with a bigger order.
This time a more glossy surface was tried
~ instead of the semi glossy one been used so far ~
which I find to work just perfectly 
with the prints.

So today, being inspired by the new mugs that have come to live with us, 
I put together the collage above, with the chromatic theme of 
~ dusty blues & silver greys ~
Three of the prints portrayed were already available:


and three new ones just got listed and joined the others on the shop's shelves:

                                     and  ~ Attached ~

...now I'm off to the kitchen to prepare the first vegetable soup of the season,
 as it has gotten quite chilly at night...
so a warm soup seems like a perfect dinner
 to be sipped under candle light...
...before I go, do have a look at this amazingly curated treasury, 
which featured
the Time Travellers print today 
and was actually responsilbe for the day's
colour scheme inspiration.
Trully beautufl finds.
I could order many of them...

And if you'd like to win one of our shop's prints,
do pass by Gathering Spriggs and state your wish.
You might be the lucky one!

Have the best of afternoons, enjoying autumn,
 those of you living in the same part of the world as we do

See you soon dear all,
