About 15 weeks ago Teresa (@artytruda on Instragram) posted one of her daily sketches.
She painted the parisian 'Rosa et moi' scene in Jardin des Tuileries last June.
Teresa is a very talented artist from South Africa and i'm following her daily work on Instagram.
I was so surprised when I found this precious sketch of Rosa and me on Instagram a Sunday morning and regrammed it immediately.
Some weeks ago my sweet friend Cornel from South Africa, brought 2 prints of this artwork to Marrakech, one for me and one for Rosa.
How sweet is that?!
Merci mille fois Teresa. Xx
(and thank you Cornel for the special 'courier service')

'A garden is never so good as it will be next year.' Thomas Cooper
The curious gardener's almanac by Niall Edworthy on my garden table.
It's a collection of remarkable facts, curiosities, ancient wisdom and time-honoured tips. Dry or dull information has no place in the almanac.

Crochet with a view. On day 3 of the workshop we had an amazing day in the desert, making bikini tops.
Stunning ever-changing skies, panoramic landscape and impressive mountain view! Working on our bikini project, we imagined ourselves on the filmset of Lawrence of Arabia...
Quite an exciting day, ending with a sensational sandstorm.
