A few of my favourite things

As a child I don't remember having much that held any memories for me from my families past.  There were no heirlooms or favourite items passed down through the family.   I think probably, this is partly why I now surround myself with items that hold memories of places visited, special occasions or my children. 

Whilst on honeymoon we found a wonderful little shop crammed full of beautiful bespoke, whimsical and limited edition gorgeousness.  When I saw these prints I had to buy them, I felt as if the artist had made them just for me, particularly as we had left my young son at home with my parents whilst we went away and I missed him so much.

I wanted this print in particular to always remind me of my wonderful honeymoon but also of how much I loved and missed my son.  Entitled "Quiet Pride ", it sums up how I felt then and still do about my eldest son.

My husband choose this next print entitled " No more secret" and it has such special meaning for us.

I choose this one entitled  "Good Jumper" for my husband
