A collaboration!

Good Monday Morning friends!

I have a piece of news which I have been waiting to tell you about, and today I can! Do you know the beautiful work of Arounna? Arounna and her husband run the exquisite shop Bookhou and the Arounna has a charming blog called Bookhou at Home which I always enjoy reading. They are based in Toronto, Canada, which is where they have their bricks and mortar shop. And they also have an etsy shop.

Well, my exciting news is that last November Arounna asked me if I would like to collaborate, making some prints together! I was honoured, as I now how well respected she is, creatively, as a business woman and as a friend (to Sonia and Margie). Today Arounna is going to be watercolouring the prints (you can read about it on her blog) and then I will be able to show you what we have created together! I'm so happy and excited to be taking part in this collaboration and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you.

Photographs are of a few of Arounna's other projects (taken from the bookhou website and etsy shop). She a talented lady!
