Lyoobov by Rima Staines

Talent Abounds


Since I started this little blog adventure, I have frequently been amazed at all the talent out there in the air. I’ve loved seeing Gretel Parker's charming illustrations and delightful toy creatures over at Middle of Nowhere and I visit there regularly to be inspired by her latest creations. Sandra’s artworks found at her blog Sandra Evertson are wonderful,
Patricia van Essche's illustrations at
PVE Design are so lovely and Constance Muller at Rochambeau makes the most exquisite things.

Occasionally I meet someone that, like the above artists I’ve mentioned, I feel compelled to share. I am a trifle late to the party, as some of you already know about her, but I simply could not resist featuring Rima Staines and her captivatingly original artwork . Rima can be found at
The Hermitage and you owe it to yourself to pay her a visit. Rarely, an artist lives their work in such a way as to erase away any distinction between artist and art. I feel Rima is such a person and it is such a privilege for me to be allowed, through her magically imaginative blog, just a teeny glimpse into the world that she inhabits. Through her wonderful writings and photos of her work I understand a little more about the demands and the joys of the creative process. And of course, Rima dwells in Scotland which is, to me, the most enchanted place on the planet. She recently began fashioning beautiful, bewitching clocks that are truly a delight for the senses and, with the holidays closer than we think, I can imagine no better Christmas gift than one of Rima’s creations. Wander around her site and see if you don’t agree.

  1. Oh thank you so very much! I am soooo overwhelmed by my wretched book job at the moment, and so tired that kind words are liable to make me cry!

    Did you know that Rima and I are friends in Real Life? She is exactly as she is on her blog, if not more so. (If that makes any sense!) She babysat our cats, garden and cottage a few years ago when we had our first (and sadly last) holiday abroad.

  9. Dear Pamela,
    Thank you for mentioning Rochambeau on your beautiful blog!!! I would have stopped by yesterday, but was working.

    Thank you too for the links. I've never been to the Middle of Nowhere or PVE Design before. Both great!

    May you and Edward have a wonderful adventure today while you balance all of your chapeaux I know, with great style!

  19. Hi there Pamela ( and Edward of course.)
    I have just spent an enchanted half hour on Rima's site and added her to my Etsy favorites. I am going to eventually own one of those clocks. Thanks for sharing.

  20. I very much enjoyed my too short stay at the Hermitage! Thankyou so much for the introduction! Rima is enchanting, as is her blog. Being the mother of two girls who, as younger children, enjoyed the world of fantasy (actually they still do!)it was magical to go back and enjoy the edges of reality again!

  21. You are so right - about Gretel and Sandra and Rima. True artists, all - in life and in their work. Isn't the bloggy world such a cool thing? We get inside peeks into the thought processes as well as the end products.

  22. Beautiful, beautiful picture, Pamela - thanks for sharing - I had not come across Rima's work, although I know and love Gretel's. Shall be off to look forthwith.
