Lovely things 2

How is everyone finding February? It's definitely not my favourite time of the year, it's pretty grey and depressing (despite Valentine's day and Pancake Tuesday!) So to combat the February blues, how about some more...... lovely things!
Illustration by John Dyer Baizley
I'm currently looking for inspiration for my next tattoo and I really like this style of illustration, it's like a beautiful, modern take on art nouveau or Alphonse Mucha.
Print by Roll & Tumble Press on Etsy
Maybe it's just me but I find this print hilarious! It reminds me a lot of my sister.
Salt and vinegar chickpeas from Oh She Glows
Umm, this chickpea recipe may be the most delicious thing I've ever tasted. I've made them three times since I found the recipe last week. I only stopped because I ran out of chickpeas. They are seriously tasty!
*note to self, buy more chickpeas.
Multicoloured manicure by Carli at Konadlicious
Such a cute and simple idea! I'm definitely not a great manicurist but I think even I could handle this one.
The Wishing Tree by Lissy Laricchia
Every image in this photographer's photostream is just incredible, beautiful and inspirational. She's amazing!
Hex Trio necklace from Paper & Chain
I love this necklace, it reminds me of honeycomb. Delicate jewellery on thin chain is my favourite kind.
So how do you like February? Any tips for cheering yourself up when it's cold and grey and you're still paying off your Christmas credit card bill?

Feb is usually our hottest month but thus far it's been pretty damn disappointing :(
All of these are great, I must try that chickpea recipe, it sounds amazing xo

Oh I love the donkey picture! My Feb is pretty awesome, mostly because its summer. Although where I live the weather is so changeable, we have grey days in summer and bright sunny days in winter - such a mixed bag!

Ooh, I love that first one. It reminds me of Mucha. How I wish I could draw (paint?) like that.

I've made crunchy chick peas like that before,but they weren't salt and vinegar. Yum!! I will have to try that.

Dude, that chickpea recipe looks so good and extremely easy. I'm going to have to give it a go next time I go grocery shopping.
