My recent travels have taken me to 4 countries in less than one week. I started by spending a few days in the UK to catch up with my sister and her family who were over from the States.
On a walk through Clifton village in Bristol, we spotted these mouth-watering cupcakes in a bakery window.
This beautiful rose window is in the Clifton Arcade (a converted church building) – an Aladdin’s cave of antique, exotic jewellry and clothing shops.
The Clifton suspension bridge which spans the river Avon is one of Bristol’s crowning glories. It was built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel who also built the ship called the Great Britain which now resides in the renovated docks area.
My sister rarely sits still doing nothing and can often be found painting in her journal while the rest of us carry on talking around her. Where possible she paints directly from nature but if not, uses her own photos. Here she is painting some rowan leaves and berries she has picked from the garden.
At the moment she is working on a nature-inspired journal. This is a spread from it.
