Cakes and colours

Today I took part in a colour therapy workshop, run by a friend, in my lunchbreak at work. I hadn't done one before so didn't know what to expect. The hour was taken up with meditation using colour as the focal point. The hour passed so quickly and I came out feeling energised, with my brain eager to start on anything creative.
Sometimes we need to take time out just to clear a space for new ideas to take shape or sometimes we can get inspired by what we see and experience...
I took this photo in Harrogate at Bettys teashop last Easter after we had a fabulous late lunch consisting of a three tiered cake stand filled with yummy sandwiches, a cream scone and various cakes as well as a lovely pot of tea. As we couldn't finish the whole lot the rest was put in a box tied with ribbon for us to take away and eat later (we did!)
Even though we were stuffed, we still had to experience the shop full of even more delights. Out of this fab trip to Bettys my tea cosy designs came about, followed by cards and notebooks.


  1. Wow your designs are so bright and the colour choices you've made, and it's great you've been able to transfer your design to three different items, notepad, tea cosy and cards it, marice x

  2. Yummy! These items look great and the colours make me think of lovely bright buttercream. THis is a great start to your blog, I'm looking forward to future posts.

  3. Thank you both for your kind comments, it's so encouraging!

  4. That window looks great, reminds me of Chocolat.
