Truly Inspired

Did you miss me? Here I am, I finally returned from my very long break in the sun.

 Spain very kindly shared its culture and colour pallet with me.
I feel very inspired and roaring to go.

I can hardly believe these beautiful flowers grow outside on trees  in Spain.
Here at home in the UK 
we need to keep these wonderful plants indoors. 
 It is too cold and there is not enough light in the day for flowers to bloom.
This is the only drawing I did because it was too hot to get my sketchbook out.
How do you guys cope when it is so hot?

All I could do was eat, drink and be inspired.


Yum...Don't you just love the gorgeous colour of this paella.
My absolute favourite.

I can say it tasted even better than it looks in the picture!!!!

After all that sun, great company and food I feel very inspired.

 Orange is such a warm colour don't you think?

I am now so desperate to bring some of that warmth into my house.
I am thinking of creating an orange room, I think these wallstickers may just be the thing!

Heat is in the South Alabama..Heat plus humid..Horrible.
Spain I would change with it for Alabama for a while.. Because I love the shades of Orange.
Glad to see you back.

Welcome back!
I don't do so well in the heat....of course, I don't do so well when it is freezing either. I'm a "like it just right" kinda girl :)

That drawing of the hibiscus is gorgeous....instantly says summer tropics to me!

I think an orange room would be fabulous! Oooo....or maybe a neutral room with accessories in orange and turquoise? Could really liven things up ;P

Anyways, glad you're back...heehee!

I love this post! Paella is one of my favorite dishes. I attempt it once in a while and I love the one made with noodles or Fideo!
