A few of my favorite things: Ish & Chi
Hi! I’m Viv from the Ish & Chi blog and I’m so excited Holly asked me visit while she is moving as part of her guest series, “A few of my favorite things“. Here are a few of my favourite things around my home.
Things that inspire me: I get a lot of inspiration from blogs (like decor8!), interior magazines, fashion photography (especially from the sixties), Japanese art and sometimes really random things. For example, pictures my mum scribbles while she chats on the phone with friends have inspired a new art series I’m working on for Ish & Chi.
Favourite advice I’ve heard: This advice is from a blog I’m loving at the moment – 500 Pieces of Prudent Advice for My Baby Daughter: “Get messy. Some of the most joyous things in life can be grimy, sloppy, dirty mayhem.” I couldn’t agree more. The other day I tipped my son’s leftover food onto his highchair tray and we ‘painted’ with it. Food went everywhere but it was a lot fun.
Thank you for the visit! — Viv xx
