birds in the distance
clouds gently
whistling kettle calls me
another stolen moment...

Stepping out once again next week to join the bower birds at the Brisbane Suitcase Rummage Market in King George Square on Sunday August 8 from 12-5. Am hoping to sell some of last seasons kids ts as well as some tea towels and maybe a few pre loved goodies too...whatever I can fit in the suitcases! I'm looking forward to checking out the magic of others, sucking up a bit of big smoke action, and getting a smile as big as this kids'...!

These little lovelies were taken by the Finders Keepers Photographer, Mark Lobo. You have to agree that he has done a fab job~ You can check out all the weekend pics on the Finders Keepers website.
It was such a whirlwind time, I can barely believe that I was there amongst all those inspiring and inspired folk! One of the many highlights was meeting up(finally) with Kylie Johnson of Paperboat Press whose poetry my husband and I have tatooed on our arms! She is a dear thing and it was wild to trip back along memory lane to discover our familiarity with each other stemmed from our tertiary studies at QUT all those moons ago.... ahh the small world! Check out her blog ,it is beautiful.
Shout out to te mono for my new belt, hand burnt with words of sweetness, another soul whose path I crossed and was (as yet) unable to discern from where it had crossed before...
And to my dear and most lovely girlfriend Leanne of Youngeve for everything we did together and dont seem to do enough of when we get back home... My only regret is not taking more photos of US. Beccofino and Flamingo(hi Netty!!!!) were definitely another highlight, oh and the shiraz!
One more thing I would like to mention, if you have the latest issue of Frankie flick to the letters to the editor and you will find the first letter is from me! Which is cool...for me..but more importantly its content. My family are an awesome, diverse and supportive bunch of people dispersed far and wide in this great country. For those that were in town and came to support my little venture at FK complete with cameras (!) I thank you muchungs too!

Inspired by the beauty of dawn and dusk and everything that happens in between, my current collection of craftworks reflect upon my life in a seaside family treehouse framed by nature, studded with critters and filled with the music of 'the little people'! Bold and quirky, at times pensive and poetic my collection includes hand screen printed cotton linen tea towles, cotton linen prints, canvas paintings and a range of funky bright screen printed children's t shirts called kickin ts. Made straight from the heart, I hope to brighten an inanimate nook in your home with my limited edition goodies and dream of running away and joining a travelling circus...

I am delighted to be chosen to take part in Brisbanes Finders Keepers Market in June! I will be sharing a stall with my wonderful friend and talented jewellery designer, Leanne Young of youngeve jewellery...see you there!

little somethings
to awaken a memory..
a forgotten tenderness
in through a window
down from a book
on my lap
