lovely links...

Lots of lovely autumn sunshine & blue skies lately, still waiting for rain, but enjoying the sunshine while its here...

One song, many languages.

A comic about love. Some thoughts about beauty.

I want to try making some of these little journals - so lovely.

Gorgeous & amazing tunnels of trees.

Almonds in baked goods are the best, like in say, almond cake, or biscuits, maybe a baked pancake or perhaps a tart, scones or some biscotti - in pretty much anything really.

Some famous rejection letters.

a walk in the (national) park | Alligator Gorge

We had gorgeous weather over the Easter weekend & spent Good Friday exploring Alligator Gorge. It was the perfect day for it - mild & a little sunny, with a nice breeze - & we thoroughly enjoyed our wander, listening to birdsong, enjoying nature & being awe-struck at the magnificent scenery.

After enjoying the views from the look-outs, we ventured down the stairs into the gorge, walked along the terraces, followed the path (&/or creek bed) through the gorge - marvelling at the vast, layered walls (& the trees & grasses managing to grow there) - & climbed back up to the top for lunch.

It was an altogether lovely way to spend the day...

a day at the market | april

A totally glorious autumn day for this month's Wirrabara Producers market, a cool (cold) early morning, followed by a mild, sun-shiny late morning & afternoon. It was also Easter Sunday & along with the sunshine came lots & lots of people to buy produce, chat & enjoy the atmosphere.

tangle | cards

Recently I uploaded some of my zentangles to my Redbubble, to make into greeting cards. I ordered some of each of ten different designs - to take to market & have in the shop - & I'm really pleased with how they've turned out.

flinders street market | april

We had a wonderful weekend at the Flinders Street Market - gorgeous bright, autumnal weather, lovely people & plenty of interesting things to see. I was very happy with how our stall tuned out - we decided to have a bigger space & filled it not just with my jewellery, but Mum's crochet berets, embroidery art & flower accessories, Kathryn's felt clips & brooches, zentangle cards & our painted bags & aprons.

Not entirely sure when our next time at the Flinders Street Market will be - probably late May or early June - I'll keep you posted :)

in a fog...

One morning last month we woke to a quiet, fog-shrouded town - beautiful & slightly eerie. Kathryn was already out with the camera & once she was done, I went for a meander around the yard to take some photos of my own...
