I love Jessica Gowling‘s address, it sounds so remote and idyllic, I imagine a little log cabin nestled into the foot of a mountain with a long winding track up to it. I received a lovely garden themed package from her this week in a beautifully decorated envelope. It contained some lovely cuttings and paper ephemera, a pressed flower and some wonderful stamps that I am in love with. My favorite piece was the old book page with a pretty mountain scene and a quote that reads ” I cannot offer gentle flowers, only these strange and fateful blooms”, there’s something captivating about those words.
incidentally, if you have a penchant for beautiful hand printed illustrations of wildlife you should check out Jessica’s shop. I especially LOVE these pieces and have put them on the wish list in my head:
I finally finished the knitted owl cushion that I have been working on for months, he is called Oswald Mowl. I am very proud as it took much perseverance to say the least but now I feel ready to tackle a pattern for a cardigan or jumper, preferably a fair isle number.
He’s sporting vintage floral wings and a gold leather beak
