Last week I finally managed to escape to my own special woods. What makes this wood so special is that half way through there's a beautiful view across the fields to my home and it means that we can walk or cycle there in almost no time at all. The woods here are young, although there are a couple of tree specimens that date back to Saxon times, I've been told, so this area has always been covered in woodland, just not a great deal of it remains.
From gnarly fallen trees,
to vine covered fairy homes we explored, the Moomin and I.
Then back home to paint up some wooden slices from our hawthorn hedge at the field. I feel the stirrings of fairies, but also want to indulge in some Autumn pictures. What will actually go onto these little slices is anyone's guess. I want to make them special though, as I only have a very few of these pieces.
More trees, only this time, these are back from the printer. I'm so pleased with how they turned out. The colours are gorgeous, although the pictures don't do them justice. I don't mind that though, as I'm a tad bothered by copyright again these days!
I'm also very pleased with my two fantasy horse cards. I'm going to be putting a few of these in the Etsy shop, but soon I'll be dipping my toes with the shop on my website, so that should be interesting!
