Meeting Rhoda Parry

On Friday I had the pleasure of meeting Rhoda Parry, editor of one of my favourite magazines Country Homes & Interiors.  What an inspiring lady.  She manages to balance life in the country with running a magazine in London - not sure how she does it!  Anyway, check out her blog - it's full of lovely ideas and inspirational photos.

Farm Signs

Handwritten signs have an undeniable charm.  I made these two simple signs for the farm by printing out the lettering from the computer and then pricking through with a pin onto the wood below.  This gives you a rough guide of where to paint but still means the signs retain their hand-made quality.  Signs painted in Farrow and Ball 'Off Black' with 'James White' lettering.
