Weekend Wonderings

I’ve done that thing where you see someone else with the work of an amazing artist and then you decide that you love them too and you start telling everyone about this fabulous work like you’re the one that discovered it.

Laura snapped a photo of a print that she’d bought for her beautiful baby girl, Arla, and shared it on her Instagram page. This one -

I mean, seriously. Did you ever see anthing so ridiculously ‘perfectly perfect’? That was it, I was hooked. Dallas Clayton, you are my hero.

There’s this one, which makes my eyes do this funny leaky thing…

And this, which is just so wise it makes my head spin…

There is a truth and innocence in his work, a childlike beauty that manages to somehow tap in to every worry or negative thought you’ve ever had and just *poof*, make it go away. You really should follow him on Instagram. All the happiness.

So thank you Laura and Arla and Dallas, for bringing this colour and joy and wisdom into my world. Happy weekend, all.

All images from Dallas Clayton.

    That last one is perfect for our planned rainbow themed nursery! :)
