From the Highlands to San Fran…

3 May

So at the weekend the OH biked and hiked 55 miles (between Fort William and Inverness) and I was his support team.

This meant I spent the weekend driving around the Highlands – where there are almost no straight roads – and hanging about at the waiting points.

(Obviously I looked just as glam as the woman in the pic above!)

Anyway, it was all for a good cause – so far the OH has raised £400 for Maggies.

This is also my explanation as to why I still haven’t sorted out my San Fran and Vegas pics!

I did however come across the work of Chloe Fleury, a French illustrator/designer who lives in SF… so I thought I’d share some of her work instead.

I absolutely adore the map, mini paper houses and Golden Gate bridge. Makes me want to go back now!

Hope you’re all having a lovely bank holiday weekend – even if you are in work like me!

    I love the artwork – those little houses are adorable!. My husband is doing a solo and a band gig for the Maggies festival in June, we are very excited!

    Well done to OH, he is clearly hardcore.

    Did you have one of those beautiful cars too? Wow bravo to the OH that is a really long way!

    Well done to him! The first photo is great – I want that car! It’s a perfect colour … reminds me of the green that Nissan Figaros come in which I love so much.
    Pretty prints too!

    @Lisa-Marie – the solo and gig sound v exciting! you’ll have to let us know more… and it’s sounds much more fun than a bike and hike!!

    @mysparethoughts – I wish on the car front! Though I to put a very very muddy bike into the back of mine so I’d have been crying if I had that car…

    These are so clever. I love the colours and the originality.
