It's Friday, I'm in Love!

Goodmorning! This is what I am listening to this morning and can't wait until Dean and Britta come as part of the Perth Festival, to present "13 Most Beautiful Songs - to Andy Warhol's Screenshots". I am finally working my way out of my work mountain and into summer light, only 4 more sleeps!!!! I have a few posts today I think. Also I have made a Christmas present purchase for myself on behalf of Joe - these Givenchy jelly sandals - soooooo excited about the hot pink, I had to tell! Anyone up for pedicures next week?

Swanning about in new fashion

Last year I was lucky enough to be asked to design the promotional material for the West Australian Institute of Fashion and Textiles graduate showcase and I am so excited to be doing it again this year. Here is the 2008 look and a sneak peek at 2009.......

To be published!

One person can only do so much and somehow blogging fell of the page of things to do! Here is my drawing of Lisa Mitchell for the next Box Magazine....

 I am always smiling when i hang up my vast array of mulitcoloured underwear and Emma Bee made it possible. I recieved these gorgeous rosy pegs from the Bee herself and I love them everyday. They also look great in the pantry as closures to the half packets of spaghetti and porridge. You too can own apiece of the Emma Bee sunshine at her esty shop here.  She also makes very lovely cushions perfect to lift this wintery mood x

Gray Sky Morning

 I look at people as ideas. I don’t look at them as people. I’m talking about general observation. Whoever I see, I look at them as an idea — what this person represents. That’s the way I see life 
Bob Dylan (via dailydoseofdylan)

 Open your eyes. Open your heart. Open your mind. Let the world pour into you. And pour yourself into the world. 

A Gift to You x

Tapestry in Milan

 I really admire the ability in creative people to make something ordinary, very extraordinary!
I am not saying that tapestry is in anyway ordinary but, this chair is a revelation and who knew souvenir spoons could look so glamourous? Suzie Stanford - that's who! She is an australian artist and her chair shown above was included for exhibition in the Milan Furniture Fair 2009. Australian furniture investor's take note!

My work.....

Well, things have been quite busy and I have been working from home on this! Coming soon to browser near you........ Store and CornerStore website yay!!!! There will be a new blog to follow featuring products from these magical shops and the creative, fashionable, curious and inspiring musings of their owners (maybe even a post or two from me!)

Sweet Dreams........

Chin chin!

Well, I am still here pressing on and making a late night vanilla cake and drinking pink moscato. This tasty, sweet, light and bubbly drink betrays my cosy living room, heater on and rain pouring outside..... It's pretty and my low alcoholic pick me up for when I need that 30 minute "holiday"... The Innocent Bystander Pink Muscato is the only one for me and also has a very beautiful label x
