This beautiful image, of butterflies among the branches is by the wonderfully talented and equally warm hearted Georgianna, who i am lucky enough to call a friend, after we met through flickr-land. I have been compiling this post for a while but its ready to go up now and on Georgianna's birthday...so Happy Birthday to you sweetie!
Her magical blog can be found here
I am always so inspired by the photos G takes. They are technically perfect in my eyes but retain all of the charm and personal touch because they are taken by someone who truly loves their subject matter.
The roses she has in her garden are a favourite to photograph and lately she has shared some wonderfully styled images of ornaments, like christmas bells and china teacups full of sweets. One thing i seem to have gathered in the short time i have known her is that Georgi is never short of inspiration. Or if she is, she just gets out in her garden, does some work and then its sure to return!
I love this about her, and i also love seeing around Millhaven, the gorgeous place she lives with her husband D. It certainly takes after its name, as it is a Haven, one of tranquility, bird song and flowers. i wish i could visit but G's blog posts are the next best thing to step into another world for a while and 'walk around' there soaking up the atmosphere.
She recently compiled a wonderful post about her year, which gives a great overview of her work, and her visit to Machu Pichu in Peru. While she was there she got me this handcrafted bag with an alpaca upon it and we did a swop as i sent her one of my canvas collages.(here's a picture of it close up)
I purchased a photo of pink roses in a jug from her Etsy shop, and placed it in a pearlised frame from Laura Ashley. It sits on my chest of drawers. G also makes notecards of her images which are of amazing quality.here are just a few...
This is my latest favourite rose photo of G's,(below) isnt it heaven! this is the link to it over at her Flickr here
I think if you love roses, butterflies and quiet havens like i do, then you'll love Georgianna's work and blog as much as me. thanks for the light and love you share through all you do G,its always magical to see your new creations,and a pleasure to spend time at your blog, a little haven of tranquility, with love to you Kat xox
