June has arrived!

The weather has been amazing this first week in June! I've been lucky in that I'm working from home and can dash in and out between jobs to soak up this early summer sunshine!

I had a really lovely day yesterday.  First my cat Charlie came in through the kitchen window for his morning saucer of milk, which always makes me smile!

Then we decided to drive into Wexford and have a mosey around the shops - who doesn't love a good mosey??  On our way out, we met these two babies who wouldn't move forward, backward or sideways and took a great deal of sweet-talking to get them to move!

After a yummy cappuccino and a spot of people-watching, I headed over to one of my favorite shops - Barkers -  to buy a birthday present..  And they have purple Le Crueset on display! My favorite color!

And these super-sweet egg cup holders -

So, I got my friend's birthday present, headed home and sat down to do a bit of sketching.  My creativity is slowly coming back after being dormant for months and when it makes an appearance, I grab my sketchbook and let my imagination take over.

I hope you had a wonderful start to June as well!  Enjoy your weekend and see the magic in everything!

Oh I love those sweet little egg cups! Isn't it interesting how our creativity comes and goes. I find I become more creative as the Moon is in her waxing phase.
Sounds like you had a lovely weekend.

That looks wonderful. The drawing is great.
I can imagine why you love those pans. The colour is wonderful. I have never seen such a colour of pans.
The little cows are so sweet.
Have a wonderful day !!
