Hello, how have you been? It is a beautiful hot sunny morning, there is a very faint haze which reminds me of the next season, don’t worry I won’t say it out loud yet. The perfect day to return, my inspiration high and sewing needles dusted off. New business cards from Moo and some lovely packaging labels waiting in the wings.But now I have burst in all excited, and I really wanted my first post to be quiet and reflective of the lovely week I have had. So I am sharing some pictures of quiet days and bright days from the world of Neves Estrela, one of my favourite Flickr contacts since the beginning. Based in Portugal and inspired by simple, ordinary and common things, I just love the colours and patterns captured here from her everyday living.

All images Neves Estrela.

    Oh yay! Hope you had a lovely break! No no — do not even breathe a whisper about the coming of….the next season — where I live the summer season JUST got started, weather-wise! I am already planning my trip to visit my family in Hawaii next winter when things get really dismal around here….we haven’t been back in a couple of years and let me tell you, it’s hard for this Island girl to get through cold grey winters without a trip back to my old home!
