our trip to Norway

2012 is a big year for our family, my folks 50th wedding anniversary, my lovely Fran's 21st birthday, and fast approaching my 50th! (eek!) so we all went on an amazing cruise to the Norwegian fiords....breathtaking scenery and some beautiful stops in Bergen and Stavanger.....

I have been working on a set of illustrations for the Little Red Riding hood which is probably the most illustrated fairytale that ever was!....has nt made it any easier though,- I have drawn the images, scanned them into the computer and then using illustrator programme I have added the colour....

I have just returned from he most amazing 3 days in Paris! I went to visit the fabulous Maison et Objet Fair which was as wonderful as everyone had told me...then a couple of mad hours racing round Paris in sweltering sunshine then in pouring rain. A delightful lunch with Sam - La Petite Violette in a superb cafe in the Rue des Rosiers was the icing on the cake! We even squeezed in a whirlwind trip to the Musee D'Orsay....stunning
