miranda skoczek

there is no doubting I love the work of miranda skoczek, she was one of the artists involved in my first range of 'artist plates'....
this week I was lucky to get one of her fabulous artworks....
the fox is now hanging in my bedroom.... I love it.

I completely love this stool, it is available through edition X, and if I owned a chainsaw I would be really tempted to try to make one, but it would never look as good as this..... & herald sun

online shopping

well it is starting to feel a little more like christmas...... I think it's the weather, it is getting hotter....
I am still sending out online orders, and can continue to do so right up until christmas, so if there is someone you need a little something for you never know what you might find.....

mixing it up

me and the boys did our tree this morning, and I decided to do something a bit different, our regular tinsel tree and decorations are packed away back in melbourne, so we improvised! We used our greg hatton ex douglas and hope shop prop tree!! and some of last years douglas & hope giant decorations, and we picked some succulents from our garden and tied them on. Because our house is a tiny miners cottage we have gone al fresco and put it by the front door..... we love it!
