Surround yourself with what you love


The autumn equinox had me feeling a bit deflated this year. Don’t get me wrong I love Autumn, it’s my favourite time of the year; all the colours, smells, big jumpers, cuddling under blankets and hot chocolate but that change in season affects me physically and mentally. Its a slow transition but I get there. Needing a little pick me up I thought I’d treat myself to some visual beauties. I try to surround myself with things I love to keep me happy; books, art, flowers, photos. I bought two stunning prints by the incredibly talented artist and illustrative tattooist Becci Maryanne. Becci tattoos at The Aviary in Leeds and has lots of prints available, as well as a few originals. I’ve not been tattooed by Becci yet but she is on my radar.


I bought the prints on their own and therefore had to source my own frames which is fine because I’d been looking for these double-sided vintage style glass frames for my own personal art projects – watch this space!

As you can see the prints are framed and ready to be hung. The only problem is I don’t know where.. I love our flat but because we’re in an attic conversion the walls turn into sloping ceilings half way up and so there isn’t much hanging space (welcomes that frequent fantasy of that big light filled house – ahhhh one day). I also don’t want to cause too much damage to the walls seeing as we (Peter Bunny) have already done so much damage to the carpets *rolls eyes*.


For anyone interested in finding beautiful prints like this I came across Becci’s work through a really cool store for artists call Stag and Raven. I found the store on Instagram but they have a physical store on the third floor of Afflecks, on 52 Church Street, Manchester, UK. I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting the building filled with indie boutiques but it looks fab – Go check them out!
