Lots and lots of Pinterest happens. Lots and lots of pinning things that touch the heart and spark the imagination.
Currently I am in love with what I like to call Storybook Illustration and Storybook Cottages.

This style of illustration is born out of the late 19th Century Art Nouveau Movement or Arts and Crafts Movement which values natural forms and muted colors. In writing this I looked for a nice succinct description of this branch of art but came up with wildly varying prose. None of which really did the art justice. So I'm just going to add some pictures to give you an idea of what it is I am talking about.

If you follow me on Pinterest you will know that I have been pinning these sorts of illustrations as well as English thatched roof cottages. Many of these can be found in the Cotswolds, a place I am longing to visit.
