two books

greenhouse studies by phillipe weisbecker at neives

two completely different books made my heart and mind do a little skip today. don't these both look awesome? i felt so inspired that i made a few simple sketches and thought about sitting down to flesh them out.

reading, planning...

i'm not much of a reader, certainly not fiction. I haven't read a novel for years, I just don't have the attention span for it, but when it comes to gardening and cook books I can spend hours pouring over the pages and pictures feeling inspired, plotting and planning with my notebook. luckily we have a really well stocked local library which is helping to fuel things along and at the moment thinking about a polytunnel is taking up some serious brain space, but we shall see...

in other news, I have been doodling and have a small itch in the back of my brain to draw.

and if you've tried to contact me at all in the past few months i've been meaning to say - my website is down! - and i don't know when it will be back up (it's a long story) but if you've emailed me since the end of july i would not have got your message.

try olivia.jeffries (@!) instead
