As I sit quietly, I feel... The layers within me, peal, continuously unfolding, like petals, carefully untwisting from their closed, silent shells. The tips of old dry branches, stretching out into hidden away crevices, through pathways of forgotten journeys. I feel ravaged gardens bloom...

JULY! I love all that you are... You draw us out of our shells into brightly lit patios, filled with sun fed leaves and tamed wild gardens. I love that you cast joyous shadows, gently swooning to a warm summers breeze. That you invite us to slow walks through the same old streets. That you paint beautiful pictures of poppies against floors covered in fallen rose petals. I love that you remind us of how beautiful the world really is, and how lucky we are, to be a small part of it all... I Hope you're having a Beautiful Summer dearest friends. xx Stella To download the calendar, go here for a larger file and right-click to save to your desktop Find me on Facebook or Instagram // Visit the SHOP
A few weeks ago my studio, was stacked high with piles of paper, the kind that comes with speckles. That kind that has in it woven words of things now gone, of previous stories and previous lines. Hand counted into petite piles, meticulously measured, folded, and stitched into dainty notebooks illustrated one by one, each one, one of a kind. I like that they are made like no other, that they have a story of their own, and that these pages, might someday be woven, with your words and lines. xxx Stella P.S Here is the SHOP // Find me on Facebook or Intagram
