Something a little different for our street art this week. I sometimes take our dog to Emslie Horniman Pleasance, and it wasn’t until my second visit there that I spotted this very subtle piece in the Quiet Garden there.
Doesn’t look like much so far does it? Then you take a closer look at some of the bricks.
Wise words indeed.

I received a lovely parcel in the post last weekend and this is the first chance I’ve had to sit down and show it off! The lovely Jennifer of Architette Studios sent me a beautifully curated parcel that had tea as the theme.
It really is such a thoughtful parcel, and I love the gorgeous wee charms that she decorated it with.
Couldn’t see a tea pantone in there though? The sugar doilies are a new one on me, I’ve never even heard of them before but I’m looking forward to trying them very soon!
This was such a wonderful thing to receive in the post (and a total surprise too – I didn’t find the e-mail notification in my inbox until three days later as I had a few days off). A huge thank you to Jennifer, and I am now getting ready a wee parcel of my own…

I’m not sure whether this was done by the people who live in this house or by a random street artist, but either way it certainly brightens up the street. You can find it on Portobello Road, just past the Portobello Pet Shop.

A little bit of people watching while having a drink at the cafe in Queen’s Park today.
