And the winner is...


Sometimes time just escapes you, doesn't it?

Apologies for the late posting on the winners of the giveaway, I just had such a long day yesterday!

It was so hard to pick just two winners as everyone's comments had something different and interesting to offer...but in the end it came down to Jamie Watson and Susan Heggestad. Congrats ladies.

I'm going to try and do a few giveawys throughout the year so not to worry if you didn't win this time there will be some more opportunities along the way!

Sans titre...











For the next two weeks The Swede™ is off work so we are kind of 'on holiday' - one of those holidays you have at home where you get lots of odd jobs done and go out on day trips. Secretly I really like these kind of holidays!

Today marks the passing of my 25 year old faux bois fridge freezer. I will be sad to see it go and the shiny new one stand in its place. Oh well.

I'm looking forward to reviewing everyone's comments for the giveaway later on this evening and I will be announcing the winners here tomorrow. Comments will be closed at 9pm GMT...you've still got time!

I don't normally do new year's resolutions but...

Just Ask It...


I really, really promise to myself to try very hard to remember to take my paint brushes out of the water when I've finished working at the end of the day.

Another one ruined this morning...ugh!

Thanks and some found things...

Here's some simply wonderful findings from yesterday afternoons wander in the freezing cold...




And here's a song I've been playing a lot this past couple of weeks...
Takka Takka :: Silence (there are some more mp3s to download at their website).

Thanks to all of you who have left comments for the giveaway - it's so interesting to read everyone's different takes on what is important to them. There's still plenty of time for any of you lurkers out there to join in - go here to leave a comment and maybe win some goodies...

Here's a little something for you...


It has officially been two years since I was first inspired by so many of the great bloggers out there, heard about Etsy and opened up the Restless Things shop. Two whole years - that's a long time and I can hardly believe that my attention has been held for so long by such a thing!

In order to celebrate I thought I'd have a little giveaway. I have two packs of 15 mini prints (worth $70 each) to give away and all you have to do is tell me in the comments section of this post what your greatest discovery of 2008 was, be it an author, musician, food, place, blog...whatever was the greatest revelation to you... and I will pick my two favorites as the winners! Comments will be closed 9pm on Monday 12th January and don't forget to leave your email address if you don't have a blog to link back to.

Speaking of the shop, I just wanted to mention that there is free shipping on all items throughout January as well as two, new limited edition prints, a new mini print set and lots of framed and unframed original pieces. It's all goin' on!

A Happy New year to you!















I hope your christmas and new year were enjoyable. I spent lots of time wrapped up indoors, drinking tea and watching films. And eating way too much of course!

See you in this space soon...
