Samhain Blessings

A year passed by and it's Samhain time again. Although I live in Southern hemisphere now, I still feel connected to the otherside. Now is a time of reconnecting to our roots and honouring the ancestors. Today I welcome Cerridwen and thanking Rhiannon. And I welcome you to go down into the Labyrinth, connect to your subconscious and work with your shadow.

May the Owl guide you on your way toward your goals,

May the Salmon give you wisdom in your choices,

May the Horse help you overcome your obstacles,

And May the Hare fill your life with Abundance.

Samhain blessing to all.

Fairies are Welcome

Merry Equinox ! Happy Ostara and Mabon everyone. Our new project is a fairy garden. Today we finished first edition of our Autumn Fairy Garden but we still need some greenies.
Everything is hand made, even the bowl. The bowl made of newspaper with Autumn leaves glue on it. The fairy house is made of toilet paper rolls. Most of the wooden things like ladder and flower box are made of wodden matches sticks and the base of the well is bottle caps.
So with a lot of love, hands and vision we present you our first Autumn Fairy Garden! Ta da!!!!

Oh and there is a night light 😊

My new "Out of the Deep" trilogy: Nautilus, Octopus and Jelly Fish.
After many dreams of ocean deep creatures I've desided to draw some of them.

It's colouring time

I'm so excited!!!! All illustrations are finished and now is the time for colouring. I get to make a dress and pick up the colour of her shoes. The goal - two weeks tops and then think of printing.
I feel that now I'm finally ready to finish my other three books for children.

Australian afternoon tea

"When in Rome, live as a Roman do" as said  Saint Ambrose. 

So I'm sipping my new Australian Afternoon Twinings tea in my Australian afternoon and making my new creation - Snow owl clay candleholder.

Sometimes I think my blog should be called Tea and Owls :-D

Morning Tea Owl

Well if I'm not enjoying my Roy Kirkham Alpine Strawberry tea cup at least my Owl should :-)

*Watercolor on paper*

Have a nice morning,

My Jacqueline

I dreamt of my Roy Kirkham Alpine Strawberry Tea set last night. I miss my perfectly fitted tea cup. I wonder why there is no Roy Kirkham's products at all here in WA after all he is British!
So I've searched for months for my tea cup and finally stopped on Royal Doulton and Cashmere by Maxwell & Williams. Well Royal Doulton might be my cup of tea but their prices definitely not, at least not for now (90$ AUD for a teacup). So I bought myself Cashmere-Jacqueline. It's not perfect but better than a mug and I'm enjoying it drinking my morning tea.

Good Morning and thanks for all the cookies 💖

I bought two small tea cups for Maya and Elizabeth as well so we may all have a cup of tea together.
