this & that

Adele, singing along to Adele songs (among others).

Some recent etsy favourites: this gorgeous ceramic dish, these cute ceramic planters, a classy pair clogs (I love them in mauve & marina), this pretty nature-y embroidery & a set of adorable magnets.

From UpWorthy: Dogs through their ages. Things little kids say. Talking about kindness.

Really enjoying playing with A Color Story for my instagram photos.

Dreaming of far away places (always): Christmas in Zurich. A colourful town in France. Dreamy light in Florence. Canals & bikes & buildings (aka, Amsterdam). & Paris, of course.

I love pretty much everything in this shop/gallery.

Anyone up for some baking? Something like a swedish tea ring, or greek new year's cake, or perhaps blueberry-carrot muffins, thyme + cornmeal cake or maybe you need a birthday cake? Actually, if you think about it, it's always someone's birthday, somewhere - so really there's no excuse not to bake a cake...

{ 2015 }

A scattering of memories from the past year...

Lots of jewellery making, finally got the hang of firing base metals (more or less), had some really good markets...& my jewellery started being stocked by a shop in Adelaide...a sun-shiny Writer's Week, enjoyable as big trips for me, but enjoyed seeing the pictures as my sister explored Edinburgh...started the year with a visit to the beach...finished some new zentangle-mandalas...spent most of February on call for jury duty...had my wisdom teeth removed...did a little bit of local exploring...& had a quiet Christmas at home.

1. rainy mornings \\ 2. Pt Germain \\ 3. late afternoon light \\ 4. new jewellery \\ 5. a little autumn colour \\ 
6. Writers' Week \\ 7. abundant blossoms \\ 8. new tangles

snippets of december...

Some snippets of December via instagram...a sad & unexpected trip to Brisbane to farewell my Uncle...some preparations...I really didn't take that many new images this past month - it wasn't an easy end to 2015, but we made it through & we're looking forward to what 2016 will bring.

a new year begins...

...full of promise, potential & possibility.

I hope your 2016 is full of light, joy, love, new experiences, bold dreams, quiet moments, adventures & plenty of laughter. Because the best (& scariest) bit is that anything can happen...

Happy New Year!
