Into my ear you whispered

"For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul."  

In 1939 Judy Garland privately published a small volume of poetry and gave it only to her closest friends. Reading it gives another layer of depth to a wonderfully creative, tumultuous and passionate woman.

 It was written at a time when people still put pen to carefully chosen paper, perhaps shimmered thoughtful words of love with a hint of perfume and the receiver bound these words with a silk ribbon, a remembrance of times past.   I hope you will find an evocation of that spirit with the new range of cards in store this week at the wonderful Husk stores.

Love Notes- fragments of our hearts

 The soft dusty scent of rose petals, the velum feel of old paper, gently untie the silk ribbon and out spills words of fire, the hopes un-faded, the whisper of breath on skin.

I hope you enjoy the Love Notes-Fragments cards whispering the most romantic words we seem too shy to say. Please, please I beg of you - not just for Valentines but any day/every day you know love.

A New Year, New You.

I love this little work of art, it seemed to speak to me of all the fears and lost hopes, the trepidation that I have lived this year past and points to the hope of the new. Kelly Rae Roberts is an artist who has achieved great success but still seems to tread softly and with an open heart shares her hopes and fears on her blog - do go for a visit, you will be inspired.
