TO FULLY REALISE MY HEARTS DEEPEST DESIRES

that is the goal for my life
&
 to inspire that for everyone else to achieve

so far away... day by day though...πŸ’œ

hey lovely beings:)))😊

how are you? i hope spring & may is treating you wellπŸ’•πŸ’œπŸ’•πŸ‘Έ

here in wonderland creation is taking place like the blossoming of all beauty our planet is creating at this very moment. spring is such a delight, especially when it's warm and filled with sunshine:))) which yeey we have had some of here, so grateful over this. 

it's been a couple of weeks alright!
 my godparents came to visit me. 
i have created another self-portrait series that i dedicated to tony πŸ’ž
there has too been planning for a couple of other shoots. i have helped out at haven house which is such an adorable place to be involved in. then i have captured beauty on a daily basis. too finished the first book of terry pratchett's triology of the witches, equal rites πŸ’œ and am now almost done with the magic of the second one, wyrd sistersπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• 
and this past friday my little painting, her name is violette,
 was hung up for loughton's art trail which had its opening on saturday. 
i have yet not had the time to go see the whole thing so am a tiny bit excited to go view it 

and then the white wonder flew away to create another life story 
somewhere else
  beyond what i am yet able to see

the joy of life please gift it to me every single day for the rest of my life


to fully realise my hearts deepest desires


a mirror selfie of an  outfit i am to find a magic location to create another image for one of my ongoing series of mine. the wonderful bonnet is created by starlite robinson on etsy, and the faerie dress i found at beyond retro a couple of years ago:)))

a still life of the beautiesπŸ’œ


 some other versions of the self-portraits i created the other day



testing the light before changing outfit

before most shoots i create mood boards
usually for poses and expression inspirations
 as you can see, 
ballet,
 especially the early stages
 of this magic is a huge inspiration of mine
such beauty
πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž
all the above images i have found on pinterest which i have re-pinned on my board ballet over there

spring blossoms
devour = yes
 this is all buckhurst hill wonders of spring


this creature is now framed and hung up for loughton's art trail😊

ann & jan-Γ₯ke
my godparents
how i love thee
πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
this was the last day we saw eachother, it was such a summery day so beautiful such happiness. see how cute they are:)!??? jan-Γ₯ke has known me since i was born. that is special, very special.
πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«

anyways, now we have a new week in front of us. i hope that we all have wonders to look forward to. do you have any philosophy you are trying to live up to for this cute year of 2018 ?( with this i mean as cute as you and i can create it despite such other sadness things are happening on our planet, how else though can we turn things around? it  can only start with you and me right?)

for me personally , as i have mentioned before (i think), 
this is my little philosophy for 2018:

be joy
have grace
create magic beauty

a word that i have in mind
is
kindness


faith hope & love
to you
magical creatures

BEAUTY IS ITS OWN EXCUSE FOR BEING

hey wonderful onesπŸ’œ

beauty is its own excuse for being

- ralph waldo emerson

one can also say
joy is its  own excuse for existence
πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œπŸ’•πŸ’œπŸ’•

it's been a couple of weeks dear wonders. happening ones in a good way. i am to blog on mondays but some of these beginning of the week days are busy with other things and that is how i am running my life and my art. anyways, the main event has been me going to richmond, london to capture beauty but too create some self-portraits among all the spring blossomings offered to us now:))))
i stayed over one night and the first day in richmond i went straight to kew gardens. which was such a serene stunning visual to devour.
i have volunteered a couple of times at havens house and had a meeting with a lovely helen at the swedish church in london's marylebone and am to start helping out there as well starting this coming thursday:) exicted. i too know that my poetry with an image is part of the next kyrkobladet issue, the magazine as published by the swedish church in london and which happens to be my love Γ₯sa's last issue since she now is moving on for a job at the swedish embassy in london. exciting journeys:)
there has too been a lot of art creation.
summer came instead of spring as well. oh dear. my richmond time was 27 degrees in the shade with no wind. such brilliance. thanks to god and our amazing universe and living mother earth.
i am too almost done reading "a room with a view" as written by e.m forster via an audiobook as read by joanna david. it is divine! i can SO relate to a lucy despite her world being such a long time ago.
of course too, epping has blossomed into something that has been hidden for a very long time and THAT bring me so much joy.
of course before going to richmond i had my roots done and hair blown out to look a tiny bit more beautiful:) i devoured some magazines while this was being done and found some cute inspirations.


meet 
the garden lady
her name is violette amorina
she devours natures blossoms
loves mother earth as it is planted and organized

the dreamy gardeness
 the two photos above are self portraits taken at the wonderful place
of
kew gardens in richmond


a behind the scenes photo before shooting a 3rd selfportrait

it's a wrap
now finally i could put on my sunnies:)
balenciaga if you wonder

of course there were millions of spots to capture for it beauty
beauty as its own excuse for being
which turns in to joy for me to devour
oh dear god in the heavens
thanks


this is a little place in richmond that i found after i had left kew gardens. on my way to the hotel i was to stay in to leave my stuff before going out to enjoy  a summer day while it's still supposed to be spring. 

i went to this wonderful pub in richmond which is right by the canal the thames. this was my view. i had a glorious 2 glasses of sauvignon blanc from chile there while reading a gossip magazine and the fashion publication porter as you can see below. is it not a stunning cover? karlie kloss beauty...!!!


saturday morning i created a tiny morning walk. the thames in richmond. such beauty! don't you agree?

saturday i too came home and uploaded my photos to lightroom.

i am working on this piece. i might make it in to a little postcard for wonders to post to loved ones, only special love joyful messages allowed.
this is a mixed media piece it put in to photoshop

at butchers where i had my roots done i found some inspirations.
i have to say, harper's bazaar uk and its (i think) april issue is astounding.


some of my outfits😊
 the pink faerie lace dress is by vivetta


 this day was the first day of no stockings for the year so i was VERY glad
dress from moonson
and necklace and bangles i bought from haven house

the above dress is from next girls

 the above mirror selfie is from this past sunday. it was 20 degrees in the shade and i was having such a glorious day. i just love warmth and the rays of the sun. dress from top shop. bangle from haven house and hair pin by marc by marc jacobs.

here i am on my way to richmond. fully packed. too wearing makeup. this is early friday morning.

art art art
i am creating every day.
i have so many online classes to follow and learn from
the piece below is soon finished, just not yet

i protect my wooden table with a news paper, one i doodle on too as you can see:)

i have so many mixed media pieces that i am working on and some needs a layer of protection with a layer of gesso so this is what this one is / was in need of. i mix various mediums with my own photography (sometimes as an image transfer) and some victorian scraps which i adore.

the below image of my art table is from yesterday. the little "bear" with the yellow dress is part of the class lifebook 2018 that i am taking. it is all for mental health. she this cuteness is really to pretend she is my protectorπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
she is far from done
i am to practicing painting peonies with water colurs

poetry is the world
found a couple of very old poetry books in a charity shop in epping

beauty
don't you agree?

a spring epping





allie
