A New Year Greyhound and a Hare!

Happy New Year from Teacup and Teasel. I found this wonderful etching and it includes two of my favourite creatures greyhounds and hares. I thought it was a good way to bring in 2011. I have a friend who has a greyhound called Angel and she has invited me for a stroll with her lovely hound so I will be taking up her offer very soon. Best wishes to all the people who have kindly looked at my blog in 2010.

This is the wonderful work of Rob Ryan who has a studio and shop in London's East End. Columbia Road is a fantastic place to visit on a Sunday morning and I feel a trip to the artist's haven coming on soon!

Emily Sutton

I am returning to the Teacup and Teasel after a difficult chapter but there is nothing like some wonderful art to lift the spirits! I just love Emily Sutton's work. Apparently she is strongly influenced by landscape and creatures of the Yorkshire countryside. She is also inspired by weird and wonderful objects found in museums and antique shops. She lives in a house on a hill in the middle of nowhere. Sounds lovely.
