Charlotte Cook Illustration

Look at the loveliness I have just won! I was so excited when I came home to this parcel the other day from wonderful illustrator Charlotte Cook. Excitingly without even knowing it I was her 500th follower and so she sent me this gorgeous looking parcel :)

I just LOVE her illustrations, they're so fun and affectionate and just scrumptious! I can't wait to get my hands on some more books she's illustrated to read with Delilah, I know she's going to love them.

Love this autumn postcard and the textured trees here.

Lucky me to win this card selection!

And this gorgeous book 'The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat' it's already a firm favourite. Love the children dressed as the Owl and the Pussycat and the patterns are so lovely on their clothes, aswell as all the rich texture and pattern in the background of all the pages. Thanks so much Charlotte I feel very lucky!xx

Daddy & Delilah

I just wanted to share with you this beautiful illustration I commissioned Abby Wright to do for Ian's birthday last weekend. I'm sure you'll all agree, it's amazing! I love the detail from Ian's beard to Delilah's floral babygrow, it's just wonderful. I think Abby's really captured the moment, and the feel of Ian and Delilah.

I've loved Abby's illustrations for a while now and feel thrilled to own my very own piece of her work! Her style is really elegant and graceful and slightly graphic too, which is why I knew it would be the perfect present for Ian - he loves it too! I would definitely recommend taking a look at Abby's work and considering her for portraits, they're the most wonderful personal gift - I can't wait to get this framed and on the wall. Thanks Abby!
