Melanie Barnes is the writer and photographer behind the beautiful Geoffrey and Grace blog – a home for slow, wholehearted and creative living.
This blog space celebrates imperfections and cherishes vulnerability, making time for and placing importance on creativity – in its many forms – and how it enriches our lives. It provides an opportunity to explore my creative potential, to create, express and share my experiences with others, in the hope of bringing a little bit of light and loveliness into your day.
