Designed by Debbie Powell for M&S.

I love the use of texture and the composition of the different elements within
Debbie Powell’s crown design. The colours she has chosen work together very
well, I wish this was available as a screen print - I would love to frame it on my
The London tin (from my previous post) was designed by Phil Hankinson, the
two jubilee tins were designed by Debbie Powell and Kate Forrester.
I purchased this M&S tin last year by Kate Forrester to celebrate the royal

The tin with the little dog on was also designed by Phil Hankinson for M&S.
Silhouettes in Kings Park, Perth
There is something about the Australian landscape that I can never get enough of, perhaps it is the diversity of the country and how strikingly different every aspect of it is when compared to home. The smell of the trees and the flowers, the colours of the sunsets, the call of the birds and the warmth of the air.
The tree in the middle of my photograph is a Eucalyptus or Gum tree, my favourite native Australian tree. The silhouette of the tree is different to every other - the elongated shape of their leaves makes them easy to spot. Every time I catch sight of one in England, I wonder how it got there.
