flowers: Guinness advert

flourish on Guinness: advertisement with flowers (day 14 of the 30 day photo challenge: flowers)

Today’s challenge photo is my tongue-in-cheek response to the “flowers” prompt, as I’m not much of a floral photographer: a shot of a vintage advertisement displayed in the Guinness storehouse tour.

But if that’s not flowery enough for you, here’s the gorgeous spread set out in the streets of Dublin on a fine Saturday morning!

Be sure to come back tomorrow – I’m planning an awesome surprise!

This photo is part of oh so lovely’s 30 Day Photo Challenge. Today is Day 14: Flowers.

arthur sage!

This morning I whipped up the latest Arthur, Arthur Sage. He’s made from a finicky woven fabric; the weave is so loose that it likes to ravel like crazy! But I managed to hold him all together okay.

Then I taught another sewing lesson; my pupil made an adorable tote to use as a backpack next year. It came out really well, which was very encouraging for me as a first-time teacher. It’s hard to describe how nice it feels to share my favorite art form…. but it’s lots of fun.

And I’ve spent the last half hour or so “stumbling” around the web, and collecting bits of inspiration. have a taste!
