The Clothes Horse x My Little Belleville

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Rebecca of The Clothes Horse shot my Des Fleurs skirt, and I think the photos are lovely and vibrant. She is an American living in Northern Ireland and always has such fun photos and outfits.
She features a lot of designers wares, and I always like looking at her work. 
Those flowers look like they've jumped off my skirt into the landscape.
(You can buy the Des Fleur skirt ici.)
Thanks again Rebecca!

Far From the Madding Crowd

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

I spent the evening here at Hampstead Heath Ponds. It's amazing how a little simple pool of water can bring such smiles to everyone's faces-- mine included. London was so hot today- the hottest day so far of the year. I was a little testy as we waited for the overground in the sun, and trudged our way here. We entered Hampstead Heath, and people lounged around lazily, a little like my cat was doing all day in our non-a/c apartment. The moment I jumped into these ponds, I felt so much relief from the heat and the utter joy on everyone else's faces made me realize then, that living here has made me appreciate even the smallest luxuries. Whether it be a pond, where ducks poop and swim around, ice cubes from my tiny tiny fridge, strawberry gummy candies from a 24 hour convenience store, or a rare sweet smile from the woman across from me on the tube.

It's been a very good day after all.

New Book Published by Bab'l Books

Friday, June 26, 2015

Bab'l books has just released my newest children's book-
Bab'l Books is an amazing company. 
They are working to bring bilingual books to all of those kids who have been learning English, but come from a multi-racial or different cultural backgrounds. 
They are translating all of these English versions into over 12 different languages. 
But instead of having just one language in the book-- they have both languages in each book, 
so as you read, you can reference each one. 
Making it easier for the child to retain their native language, or learn it.
My book is available in Vietnamese and Spanish at the moment, but more will be available soon. Right now only the kindle edition is available but the hard copy is going to be released very soon!! Can't wait. 
You can buy it here today!

More Rings Up!

Tuesday, June 2, 2015

I've just posted more of these rings! These are all hand-painted with oils and sealed with resin. 
They are a really neat keepsake if you have me paint someone you love.
 I've had a few commissions that have been really special to do for people. 
Either way, I just love the idea of them. People back in the late 1700's used to have them done after someone had either passed away, or they used them to conceal the identity of secret lovers. 
We humans are so sentimental. And beautiful at thinking of ways to display those sentiments.
