Take four - a good egg... being Easter and all that, a little ode to the egg for a 'Take Four' post this week me thinks...
Hope you all have a lovely extended weekend!

Raspberry jelly roll...

As I'm sure you all know by now, my two big, and everything to do with design. 
Well, I'm lucky enough to do one of them as my day job, so in my spare time, I do the other! 
Happy days eh...
So, following my recent purchase (or two) of the hummingbird bakery cookbooks I made their lovely raspberry jelly roll.
(I openly admit to a 'slight' obsession with cook books, see picture below... obsessed much?!
You'll notice a clear favourite, the super amazing Jamie Oliver.
I just love them, the gorgeous food styling and photography, trying all the different recipes, discovering flavour combinations that make you go 'ooh' and 'aah'...anyway, I digress...)

As you can imagine, its not a particularly difficult thing to make apart from the separating eggs bit and then rolling the sponge and making sure it doesn't crack, but it is very yummy and can highly recommend it.

Next on the 'to bake' list, and currently in the oven as I type...pineapple upside down cake for an easter lunch tomorrow, mmmmm.

Heres a pic of my finished roll...

(told you...!)

Well, what a week...

We had a week away in the Lake District last week, and my my, we saw four seasons in one week!
It was beautiful though...waking up to snow on our first morning there.
The rain not so lovely however, but one day out of six isn't bad, 
the rest of our time there was dry atleast, but extremely cold, bbrrrrr! 
And the sun did make a little sneaky appearance occasionally.

Whats going on with our weather lately anyway? 
Seriously, its nearly April, whats with all the snow?

Need some sun!

So anyway, heres a little pic I took last week, the beautiful Lake Windermere in the snow. 
I'll post a few more once I've had chance to sort through them all.

Hope you all had a good week last week

Take four...bright bazaar

Heres the last instalment of the marathon 'Take four' posts this week.
I'll be back to blogging properly soon, but hopefully you've enjoyed these mini posts that were all lovingly put together for you last week.

I love the eclectic mix of these images, the gorgeous bright colours and clashing patterns and textures.
And who wouldn't want a pair of those shoes!?

You can see more of my 'bazaar style' pins here.

Take four...just because

Just because...
I love all of these images; the minimal colour palette, the lovely printed cross hatch textures on the bag and little pot, and the naive hand-drawn type on the poster and cushion, super yum!

Oh, and how cute is the sentiment on the tea towel...
everyone should have a little dance in their kitchen when the moment takes them...

New blog feature...

Today sees the start of a new blog feature here on loveprintstudio.

Adding to the other regular(ish) features;
'Love print...Love...?' and 'Colour Crush', 'Take Four' will be used to
showcase a select few images that I've seen across my travels on t'interweb,
collated together and thought I'd share with you all.

Some of the little collectives may have a common link,
or just be bought together because they're things I'm particularly loving at the moment...
anything and everything...

Either way, I hope you enjoy checking in to see each little gathering of loveliness.

Heres one to start us off...
