I love these trainers. They are not an expensive, cool brand or anything like that. I just like the colour. Sometimes though you just have to admit it is time for them to go. The soles are so worn I can feel every stone i walk over and it hurts! 

Anyone know where i get bronze trainers?

I am not a Dirty Harry fan, indeed i have never even seen a Dirty Harry film so i guess i cannot definitively say i am not a fan, though it seems unlikely i will ever watch it. Just not my kinda thing. however i love this poster. A great example of graphic illustration in my humble opinion.

It is part of a series of retro posters re-issued for rolling roadshow, famous movies in famous places. I quite like the Rocky one as well.

We, (a friend and her children,), have just been to the local cinema to see a short animated filmed based on the Lost and Found book by Oliver Jeffers. It is magical. THe story is one of friendship and lonliness. The animation is beautiful and the narration, (voiced by Jim Broadbent), simple and poignant. If you get the chance to see it we are giving it 5 stars. Our favourite bits include the octopus bit, (not in the book) and all the hugging at the end.

Wordless wednesday

North East of Scotland Open Studios.

We are in the middle of our busy open studio week here in Rural Aberdeenshire. The weather has been quite kind to us and we have had a steady stream of visitors. I am enjoying the chance to speak directly to people who have travelled, often quite a distance to view our work. It is very satisfying.
Two of my fellow exhibitors are, like me printmakers/illustrators. Beth is exhibiting some of her charming wood engravings.
Lisa has produced some exquisite mono-prints inspired by trips to Europe.

The three of us have also been working on a piece where in we collaborate on one drawing, we have turned one of these into a screen-print.
We are also selling a small range of jewellery we have each been working on.
Our fourth exhibitor is Linda, Lisa's mum, a keen amateur photographer who's pieces have a strong sense of composition.
If you are in the area we would love to see you. We are open right up until 4pm on Sunday 19th of Sept.

I do concede to going a little camera shutter happy at the local flower and food Festival. I had never been to a flower show before but i cannot recommend it highly enough!
It is like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory but Flowers instead of Chocolate, which has got to be kinder on the waistline, right?

I know it might seem a little odd but i was just thinking what a lovely colour butternut squashes are.
I like the seeds too.
