Sally Mann is showing at Photographer’s Gallery here in London at the moment.

Her photographs oftentimes leave me with a dual sense of eternity and ephemerality all at once. They have been lingering in my mind when pottering around the house for the last week or so.

Pencil and marker on cream paper stock.

A new drawing that shall be in the shop on the next update. Whith the darker months ahead baking and food seems to be creeping into my mind an awful lot, or could it have something to do with my recent silly obsession with the old TV series Pie in the Sky? Either way, I’m sure this lovely company also has a stake in this particular drawing. Now, I am soon off to snuggle up in bed with a good book so I shall leave you here. The rain is absolutely pooring down outside in the dark and I am thinking about my only part feathered ex-battery ladies out in their coop and hoping they are keeping dry and warm. It is strange having other-creature-companions that are not living with you in the house. Good Night!

I have a new silhouette to share:

They may share a lot in life, but each has their own star that holds their destiny within and leads them on their way through life.

In the shop later today!

Oh, have I told you that this week every order gets a free pack of monster fridge magnets?! This offer has been in the shop for a while now so will end on Sunday, but since I forgot to tell you here, it is only fair that I give you lovely bloggies a bit of a prolongment. Mention it with your order and I will throw in a pack for you even a week after the offer’s ended in the shop and that’s a promise!


A little peek into the future. I am almost ready with the awaited new site and I am really excited about it! It will be a bona fide-dly minimalist creation I hope (there’s a clause I’ld never thought I’ld exhale!) compared to the last. Easy to navigate and easy to maintain! There is still some fine tuning to adhere to, but it is soon there.. I think.

Have a lovely weekend!


Swapping rooms has made old stock appear out of long forgotten murky corners + my new work room is quite a lot smaller than the old one = big clearout needed. Hence the Specific Flavour-super-clear-out-sale. During these few happy days I will add new items to the shop, as they appear out of their murky corners and get photographed, and of course it will be to very discounted prices, as I desperately need to sort out my space, move on with things and breath new air! There will be lots of “seconds” ie things that haven’t gone through my own rigorous quality control due to paint spots/slight double prints/little smudges and similar; usually things that I think just makes the item more individual, but that I’ve held back selling anyway in case it won’t be liked by the receiver. Look out for the first sale items in the shop tomorrow!

I’ve finally managed to get some prints into my new etsy shop. There are four prints to begin with; two that are based on drawings and two that are based on paintings… like so:


Sing Sing Song


Skull Violets


Saint Violet


The Dreamstealers

Hope you like my exuberant framing, more to come soon! xo, bella



As I am still waiting for my new printer to arrive which I need for my prints, I’ve decided to do a little cheat preshow in my new etsy shop, featuring some old favourites that have been available before at my market stall in Spitalfields, London, and at a few other shops around the UK. These little darlings are a favourite of mine as they are just so can bring them with you just about everywere…because of course every place needs at least one monster.
