a new season is upon us...

.





Hello lovely readers out there! there is a definite whiff of autumn in the air today, that's why I dug out these summery pics from Syon Park, London. I saw a conker on the ground this afternoon when I went for a little stroll in the meadow, I cant believe the year has passed so quickly.

I should report that I am a tad unwell of late {nothing too serious!}, so not much happening blog wise, and maybe not for a few more weeks...but I will see how things pan out and get back to my ol'self again.

Nao is doing some work on the campervan, he took out all the insides of the van as we found a family of earwigs and spiders behind the cupboards, and when doing so, found two bad looking rusty holes!
So he is busy treating all the surface rust on the floor and deciding what to do next. Generally though, its in quite good nick and the holes are only pea sized.

We need to buy lots of materials for doing up the interior, hopefully it will be all cosy, and I am going to make curtains and seat covers...when I feel better that is ; )

Anyways, thank you all for your lovely comments, I am always taken-a-back by the generosity of strangers who say nice things to me. As I have been in bed for quite a few days now, I have been reading back a lot of my blog, (laughing at my creative spelling!) and re-reading all the comments, and realising how lovely you all are!
So I will see you all when I am vertical again X

p.s. I have suspended sales from The Bucket Tree & Rust Jewellery shop for the next week or so {Rust Wedding rings are available as usual} all sales up till today will of course be dispatched as usual.

    Wishing you lots of mugs of tea as you rest up and recover, Artemis. If nothing else, it's been a occasion for you to reflect upon what an artistic, beautiful blog you have--I've even enjoyed reading the Japanese Rust blog and I read not one word of Japanese! Best to you and Nao.

Your photos are sublime, your taste in artifacts and decor is inspiring and your creativity is a cool cosmic kick up the butt for all us other artistic wannabe bods out there.... there.. So lap it up. Oh - and get better soon!

  26. Did you get a cold? Ginger and Liquorice root boiling as a tea, and few drops of lemon juice will help.

  36. Hope you are feeling better soon. Always love to read your blog and see how beautiful England looks through your eyes.Thought of you and Nao last night when I caught a bit of a program on TV here in Osaka. They were talking about Google taking new images of Kessennuma for the streetview option. It is still showing the 2009 photos but should be updated soon. The satellite view is post tsunami and clearly shows houses in the river. It really shows the scale of the destruction. Sorry...it's not exactly sick-bed viewing but if it was my home town I'd want to see it. Hopefully next time Google update the images it will show signs of recovery.

  39. I hope you're well again soon. I live in northeast CT in the US and just love reading about your adventuring. Your beauty and aesthetic are enchanting to me. I have a 24 year old daughter and we just love swooning over all the beauty we find here. I am a holistic practitioner and would be happy to help you gather resources for your wellness. All my best sweet lady! I am a child of the 70s and my first car was a VW red convertible beatle...it was simply amazing that little car. It took me over the hills of Vermont and back again. So..I am loving seeing your new cosy camper VW...great good luck champions!
