A present for Phillippe Starck from Laura Ashley

Try to picture Philippe Starck meeting Laura Ashley. This pretty much sums up my planet. My hubby and I come from different parts of the world and our perceptions about life can vary some times ... to say the least!

The biggest challenge, however, comes around every year when I need to find him a birthday present. What do you give a man who works in fashion, does not care for gadgets and who's taste differs completely from your own?

The big date is lurking and I needed ideas. Now I am no artist. I used to work (before I became a trailing spouse, eh, I mean a PIM as in Professional International Mover) for a world renowned pencil & colouring manufacturer so I did pick up some tricks of the trade. I therefore decided to pull out some well-hidden paints and set to labour.

Inspired by my love for colours and flowers I admit I got a wee bit carried away. On the other hand, there was no way I was going to paint in black & white, I will leave that to Philippe Starck!
