This week my post is short and sweet! It's been a very hectic week, and I thought I'd be too late...

By Vermhelo

I found this little sketch online - I saved it with the name of the artist, and now don't know what site I found it on, duh! I've included it because it's pink and it's charming and quirky and I wish I could loosen up more to draw like that.

And a charming little bee - which I've been as busy as...

And some coffee quotes, as I’ve definitely over-dosed on caffeine this week….


 "A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent." Anonymous

"Behind every successful a substantial amount of coffee."
Stephanie Piro
"Black as hell, strong as death, sweet as love." 
Turkish proverb.

"Chocolate, men, coffee--some things are better rich."
"Coffee: creative lighter fluid." 
Floyd Maxwell 

"Coffee falls into the stomach ... ideas begin to move, things remembered arrive at full gallop ... the shafts of wit start up like sharp-shooters, similes arise, the paper is covered with ink."
Honor de Balzac

Here's a lovely blog you may not have seen before: Christine's Beadworks.
Christine does lovely work: very intricate beading, as you can see from the examples in her header -  and also very interesting bios on artists I otherwise might not have heard of. (I'm a little prejudiced as I just finished her background and header). Do go and take a look - and say Hi from me.

  3. Coffee! More coffee!!! Keeping me going now, too.

    I went off to the links and almost forgot to come back and comment. Well done!

    I spent about 15 minutes on my linensandlaurel dot com yesterday. It now matches my blog. And, I had to use a 100 x 600 header. It's the law there, seriously. I like it.

    HPS, enjoy!
