a great find...

Remember my tin of possibilities? well I found these 2 stencils at our local market on the weekend - my eyes lit up when I saw them and I just had to make them mine. They are now on the wall alongside this.

It's been a busy few weeks (good but busy) out of blog land for hot toffee with 4 am rises, a new stockist (more about that very soon), school excursions, 2 migraines in one week (happened to fall in the last week of school), markets, visits to stockists, exhibition deadlines, coffee with friends, lovely family visits, afternoon strolls with my best mate - Pochi and unfortunately way way way too much time spent in the car.... !! This blog has been terribly neglected and as it's my first day back teaching tomorrow I'm going to do my best to do a quick catch up..in pictures...before I get too far behind!

secretly taken through dining room window - this scene (breakfast with my family on our deck) makes me extremely happy!

cuff links for here

Southbank Young Designers Market

my 'always happy' mate Pochi

see that caravan with the rainbow stripes?

I can imagine it in our yard as my little studio...crazy?

I just missed my favourite view from the car - but still very pretty ..yes?

There is a great interview with Michelle Gillies, owner of nook over on the finders keepers blog. I mentioned a while ago that nook was a new stockist for me and am so happy to see this lovely shop has been so well received by the Brisbane community. .. I can't wait to visit again to see the amazing products Michelle stocks and to see how the lettuce is progressing in the front garden (will take a photo next time)

Also a nice surprise to wake up to yesterday - a message saying 'your shop is lovely, I've featured your earrings on my blog today' here.

dusty skies...

There was a pink tinge seeping through the windows when I got up this morning due to a dust storm - it's slowly starting to clear - the sky is now white - visibility is still very low. I'm so glad I'm working in my studio today and I'm not out on the road!

long days...

Living where we have chosen to live means leaving for work as the sun rises and returning home after the sun has set which makes for long days....we caught a glimpse of the sun setting on our way home from the young designers market last Sunday. This Sunday we'll be at the boutique markets at portside wharf from 8am - 1pm...so will definitely get home in time to enjoy the sun setting from our back deck - hopefully with a glass of wine!
