...I went on a little trip to Oxford. Upon my return I promise to tell you a little about it, but then was distracted by bunnies, nuns, cakes and curly-haired girls.
A week and a bit later, I remembered and wrote this post...
Oxford is a wonderful place. I love cities, as nothing seems further than a walk away, and we spent most our time wandering. I wish I had taken my camera, the streets were so inspiring. Houses of every age, style and colour were squeezed together along some of the tiny little lanes. Big, grand, carved-stone university buildings next to pink cottage-type home, it really was a fascinating sight. I have come home with a love of houses and am plotting to do some house-inspired craft.
I also came home with these shoes, which I had to have the moment I spotted them. They are Paul Smith canvas trainers with a beautiful, fascinating print by Rob Ryan.
"Have Faith In Me..."
I fell deeply in love with Rob Ryan's work when I first saw the paper dress he made for Vogue, and I am now in total awe of his magnificent papercut work. I love the way you have to take your time and really look before all the figures and what they are doing appears.
