After a move, it’s nice when I can get art and photography onto the walls, it’s ties everything together, and breathes more life into my space.
This print of mine was a landscape oriented image, but since the only space it fits is having it vertical, I rotated it to see if it could work and it does! Thank goodness. The plus sides of abstract images, versatility❤️ Should you be interested in finding prints for your home, feel free to check out my website and store, or inquire about specific prints you’re looking for.

Framed canvas print done through @CanvasPop in 2013, still looks great, been through 2 moves in 6 years. Great quality and service
If you’re like me, a slow sipper/drinker, you prob end up with undrunk tea or coffee left in the pot often. I usually will pour the leftover tea with tea bag / or coffee into a mason jar, such as this one, sealed then into the fridge it goes.
On a warm afternoon like today, it’s a great to grab it out of the fridge et voila, enjoy a lovely ice drink! This one was from Monday, leftover organic Royal Cream of Earl Grey from Nineteen Eleven Tea, my go-to favorite ❤️ Cold and refreshing!
📍Qina,Yunnan. Lotus plant farm, stunning to see.
Lotus leaves (for wrapping sticky rice packets), lotus roots and lotus seeds/nuts come from these giant blooming water plants. I had only known about lotus nuts or seeds cooked in Chinese hot desserts, but never seen them raw/fresh, nor knew that eating them raw bettter helped to cool the heat in your body’s chi in the hot summer months. They’re slightly astringent and bitter but have a vegetal nuttiness that made it more attractive to eat. You can buy the seed pod whole and unearth the seeds yourself or buy them pre separated. What a great plant, beautiful flowers and so much is edible or useful
So many moons ago. Turning the clock back 17 years to when I had the opportunity to live in Antigua for a few months. My bf at the time was working for a online casino company and was dispatched out there to set up the servers there. I was recovering from a job burnout and we had just moved in together not even a week before he had leave early.
I remember how surreal it felt to live there and having a chance to just relax and recharge, well mostly. I did end up working some afternoons at the BF’s office doing QA work, helping to review & correct programming code, since I had a knack for it, I had a good eye for details and patterns. Also, I did spend a good chunk of time immersing myself with the few locals I got to see on a weekly basis as they were staff the took care of the long term rentals we lived at, learning about them and their lives there. I learned a tiny bit of pigeon Patois then, loved learning languages.
This photo (good old film), I believe was taken at English Harbour, where private boats or yachts would dock for their supply run. It had a cafe shack that I had adored… A salty dog of an older Englishman ran it, two cafe tables inside and two outside, that was it. We’d often go for a drive after work to catch the sunset there while enjoying a cappuccino, or walk around to check out a newly docked mega yachts
