{ this moment } Long hot summer days

Inspired by the fabulous SouleMama
{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savour and remember.

New prints on the block!

I had a bit of a listing bonanza on Etsy last night!

I've FINALLY got around to taking photos of a couple of new prints and also some better pictures of some old favourites.  It's been lurking on my (never ending) to do list for about a month and I was finally inspired to get my camera out and get snapping!
I was so pleased with the results that I kept working into the wee small hours and listed the newbies and revamped the older listings!

So first of all the newbies.....................


Perfect for the completely captivating Claire's, Caroline's, Chloe's and Cicely's in your life.
Need it in your life? 

Screen printed Moleskine Cahier

A botanically inspired screen printed Moleskine Cahier journal. The print shows a swathe of leaves, flowers, hanging hearts and birdies in a beautiful deep, rich purple.
Perfect for keeping in your bag to jot down those important, never ending lists.

And the old favourites............................
You Smiled

"When I saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew" 
A beautiful, romantic sentiment, making this a perfect gift to give to your other half on your wedding day, your anniversary or just because you want them to know how much they mean to you. Something you can hang on your wall and enjoy as you grow old together.


The print shows the word love, embellished with flowers, delicate, lacey leaves and a pair of birdies. It would make a beautiful gift for you to give to a special couple on their wedding day, something they will hang on the wall and treasure forever.

The Art Market and Scone Game Fair

What a whirlwind the last 3 weeks have been!  All the preparing, travelling, setting up, chatting, selling, taking down and travelling for The Art Market in Holmfirth and Scone Game Fair have left my studio in a total and utter bombsite and me as a slightly vague, dishevelled wifie.....OK as MORE of a slightly vague, dishevelled wifie!!

But we have just come back from a fabulous weekend at the boat.  I spent Saturday doing nothing, and when I say nothing I really mean it! I stayed on the boat as anchor watch while John, the boys and the dog rowed ashore to the castle and the beach.  I lay in the sunshine listening to the radio and snoozing.  I didn't pick up a book or a pencil or anything.  I really can't remember the last time I've spent so long just..........being.  Long overdue and so needed!

Anyway I've come back renewed and rejuvenated and red faced! Note to self, if you're going to LIE in the sunshine please try and remember to put sun cream on you face! It's going brown now, thank goodness!

In true Louise McLaren style I do not have a SINGLE photo of my stall (or anyone else) at The Art Market, however The Art Market Blog has a lovely roundup of the weekend here, and if you scroll down you will see a picture of yours truly clutching my very exciting and hugely unexpected Special Commendation for stand design! I've got it framed, next to my Cycling Proficiency and 50m front crawl certificates!

And I also have NO photos from Scone Game Fair, however 3D2D who organised the Craft tent have a Facebook page here, with photos of some of the exhibitors goodies!

I will have some photos for you later on in the week of what we have come to call "The Great Bee Saga of 2013"........never a dull moment here!
