Tiramisu from my favourite new patisserie.
A gorgeously handmade (and international, no less) Valentine.
An edible Valentine from closer to home.
Dried flowers hanging from the kitchen dresser.
An amazing surprise from my mother -- a gorgeous little bedside chest of drawers with the cutest porcelain handles and a little sliding-out tray for coffee.
Postcards which help me to pretend I'm back at the National Gallery. The large one with the grumpy small person is by Brack, the bottom one by Drysdale and the top one is by Margaret Preston. These three ladies hanging on my wall inspire me to create stories.
What prettiness has brightened your week?

Samantha R -- You're so right: immersion is key. xx
