my week in 6...

So my lovely friend Laura of 'Kit & Nancy' fame recently decided to do a regular bit on her blog called '6 favourite things'. So we chatted and I'm going to start one on my page too cos' we both love checking out each others newest finds. I hope whoever's out their and may stumble upon my blog will enjoy them too.

You may find my first week a wee bit christmas themed...well i love christmas so what are you going to do?


a deer, an owl and a fox by kg & ab at kgrandey.etsy.com

deliciously christmas-ey snowflakes found at peppersproutdesign.com (can you find the animals?)

More snowflakes but this time they can be found at 12fifteen. These babys are made with love in Phoenix, Arizona and there's no snow there either so I don't find it too strange to love them in Queensland either!

just because it's the best letter in the alphabet.

find more at September House on etsy.

just for laughs.


one wire hippo coming right up!

find his reindeer friends at foldhere.bigcartel.com

art space at my house..

Samford valley church bonanza...

It was a family afffair, an early start and an armfull of green bags and off we trooped into Samford and into the most amazing junk market/ biggest garage sale you've ever been to in your life!

There were cake stalls with all the trimmings, fudge, rocky road, cup cakes and of course coconut ice. Coffee, Bookstalls, second hand clothing and that wasn't even the best of it!

The bric-a-brac and the art sections were what caught our eyes and when we were done we were well in need of that coffee and cake stall!

Delicious doilies, vintage champagne glasses and ceramic electric jugs were my choice of the day and my sister couldn't go past the bowls and tea cups! There will be pictures up soon and more about our adventures but for now, make a note in your calender for next year because this place is a must for all!!

Untitled (2006)
Acrylic & ink on canvas.

A taste of some of my old friends that came out of my old studio. I've recently moved and getting all my art junk out of boxes and into a new space ready to work is taking longer than I thought. Plus then all the joy the dust storms brought us has serisouly put me out!

am not a whiz at this blog business....

A promise is a promise and I did promise I would get my blog up an running and I am...slowly..please bare with me and it'll be worth it in the end!
