Dear Tumblr,
I am having a little sale this weekend.
For example, this painting was £75. It’s now only £25.
You can see all the paintings available here.
Shipping on most stuff is free, for everyone- regardless of where you live. 
Unless you live in SPACE. Then we may have to discuss collection.
Everything goes back to normal on Monday, so if you’ve had your eye on something, now is the time to grab it!
Love, Linda.

Ooooh.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

- Henri Nouwen

Also... Gnomes and gardens and cats and dogs and hiking and nature and nephews/nieces and more.
