They speak for themselves

I am so drawn to the simplicity of un-cluttered scenes - can you tell?

Polaroid - I am in love

Last week we spent 4 days down the Great Ocean Road at Port Fairy, and it was a grand adventure. We had brilliant weather ~ perfect for walks, kite flying, digging in the sand, coffee in the sun, picnics. And of course, polaroids. I am so in love. They are so soft and lovely, grainy, with muted tones. I have more to share, but it is late and I am craving my bed, so I'll save the rest for during the week.
Beach + Polaroid = Love

Baking from the heart

While musing that my baking never looks like the pictures in the cookbook,
I read this gorgeous quote. And realised that it's not so much about the finished product,
but about the time we take to bake together,
to make a mess together,
to sit down and eat together.
Annabel loves baking,
I love that she makes little hand hearts to show me.

It's out!

After a few last minute changes, the desk calendar is here! I love it. But then I guess I am a little biased. ;) I am really into everything vintage and whimsical, everything that evokes a feeling of nostalgia, and this is what I have tried to incorporate for 2010's calendar.

They are available in both my Etsy and madeit shops, and I will have them at the Sisters' and Yarraville markets in Nov and Dec.
I am a little scared at how quickly this year is going, and can't quite believe it is calendar time again. But that means summer and endless months of blur sky are nearly here, so it's all good!

A Sneak Peek

I am a lucky girl.....this weekend I will be spending Saturday AND Sunday at the lovely Yarraville Market. I am so looking forward to having a table there both days, Lou is so passionate about her market and the local talent, as a result there is such a great vibe in the Hall. If you are in the area, I would love to see you!

I am also a very excited girl, as I am just putting the finishing touches on my 2010 calendar ~ here is a sneak peek at a few of the pages. It will be printed on a thick card stock, and presented in a jewel calendar case, like last years. I have gone for a whimsical theme this year - I was going to do a beach and blue sky theme, but decided I like the photos with the text as they help encourage me to get lost in the daydream.

And you all know I love to get lost in a daydream........

Where has the blue sky gone?

It has been so grey here recently, and I am in desperate need of some blue sky.

Luckily I have been surrounding myself with blue in preparation for the Sisters' Market this weekend - making up new mini print sets, a stack of new note cards, and new photo block sizes. I am in looooooooooooove with the new medium and large photo block size, and am envisaging a feature wall with nothing but photo blocks in our house.

If you are in the Brunswick area on Saturday pop into the Town Hall, the market is fantastic!
