My latest papercutting is based on a quote from E. E. Cummins:
Here it is in the frame, the one I bought from TK Maxx to go with the bedside cabinets.
(I cheated and left the glass out just for the photo – you know how troublesome dealing with reflective surfaces can be).
It suits the carved panelling on the cabinets very well and they look made for each other.
I also bought a new lightshade from Ikea. Very frou-frou, all flouncy like a tutu on the ceiling:
The bedroom is looking quite lovely but have got to be mindful to not turn it into something too girly on account of Mr Smith who remains unequivocally male and not appreciative of the softer feminine things that I find so exquisitely wonderful.
The shade has an amazing tactile property. It’s made from paper that feels like filo pastry and is compulsively OCD touchy and squishable for it.
Jess looked on with a steady eye wondering what her mummy was up to now. And last pic of the day, Cat, from down the road. He just loves being around Gracie. Here he is giving me the Midwich Cuckoo stare – eyes as green as Tommy Knockers, the ‘is the Cat’s cafe open yet’? look.
Well, October now. Getting colder. It’s lovely seeing the leaves turning into shades of gold, russet and orange. I think autumn is my favourite season. Summer was a bit of a wash out and it’s been a very chilly year. I’ve been togged up in my flying jacket and jeans to keep me toasty for the last month or so, on and off. As E. E. Cummins said: ‘“The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.” He really meant Ireland , not the world!
Anyway, a quick ‘Hello’ from Cat and a Byeee from me!
