Without a doubt my favourite kind of flower! These peonies are heaven sent from Up The Wooden Hills. A blog filled with exceptionally happy hues! Go take a peek... ♥
Rabbits are the third most popular pet in the UK and this annual campaign supported by a number of organisations within the rabbit community is dedicated to making the lives of our intelligent, fun, curious yet complex companions better than ever.
For alsorts of info on welfare needs, dietry requirements, behaviour, health and happiness pop over to the RAW website. There's a ton of stuff on there to keep bunny lovers updated on a rabbit's every need.
Here's to happy lapins all round! ♥
So can you imagine the look on my face when Miss Saskia took me to The Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford... I didn't quite know where to start! There was so much (too much in fact) to take in for a first visit there. I was instantly overwhelmed.
For people like you and me it was quite simply heaven on earth. Case upon case filled (jam packed full) of exquisite objects, textiles and curiosities collected by early anthropologists, colonial administrators and explorers of far distant lands in days gone by.
Hawaiian feather cloaks in brilliant shades of red and yellow, a fine group of early masks worn by actors in Japanese Noh dramas, more masks from Africa, Melanesia and North America. Sculpture from all over the world in wood, pottery, metal and stone. Boats ranging from full-sized sailing craft to model canoes, baskets in all possible shapes and sizes, pottery from Africa and the Americas. Costumes, jewellery and body decoration, locks and keys, tools and weapons and musical instruments... And the list could go on!
So these are just a few snaps I took whilst in there as the light was so dim it was pretty tricky to capture a good shot. I didn't want to leave. I hope to visit again soon. Now I'm going to start sketching as I'm full of inspiration and motivation! ♥
