Mary and Susan

Do you remember Clackers?! I can still remember the feeling when I caught my knuckles! It has been fun reminiscing about the games of my childhood for this weeks Illustration Friday-so much so that I had to artwork a couple more of my initial ideas.

Illustration Friday - Old-fashioned

I was a very proud sister the day my little bro won the school conker championships many years ago!

If I HAD to choose a favourite colour I think it would have to be red. I think it really can cheer you up! These are just a few of the red things that live in our home.
Pic 1. Enamel Cooking Pot by Finel, Red Magazine-a monthly treat! Brooch by
Jane Foster-(I don't think this design is in production now), Red Vase by Riihamki.
Pic 2. Handkerchief Vase by Chance, Money Box by Luigi Colani, Delicious Tomato Paste from Jamie Oliver ( I love the packaging in his stores), Keep Calm Tea Towel-a friend kindly made it into a wall hanging for me, Egg Cup by Alessi.
Pic 3. Monty Print by String, My favourite Red Tights-Roll on Winter! Fabric by Stig Lindberg and Heart Bowl (Thanks Darling!) by Kaj Franck.
