1. I enjoyed painting one of my Home Barn finds yellow to go in my home office. This was taken half way through the project just as I was racing against the weather – it poured with rain not long after!
2. It was fun to make my first ever Apricot Frangipane on Sunday; here it is about to go in the oven. I’m really pleased with out it came out and will blog it in my Bright Bakes series soon.
3. The graphic stripe detailing of this beer label caught my eye.
4. I crafted a new project on Sunday afternoon with some cheerful polka dot fabric.
5. It was satisfying to see how the yellow wing tip of the plane I flew married the blue line on the horizon. OCD, me? Never.
6. Talented illustrator Lizzie Owen surprised me with this fab illustration of Mr. Bazaar. Thank you, Lizzie!
7. This Lissabon print makes me want to visit Lisbon.
8. These Kaleido Trays are perfect for adding a graphic punch of colour to a space.
9. I treated myself to a new bright yellow tee.
10. I found the perfect nautical notebook for the summer season.
