Angel Charlie

October 9, 2011


Well, how was everyone’s weekend? Did you enjoy the spring sunshine?I think October is a contender for my favourite month of the year. Yesterday I went for a (long-ish) ride on my deadly-treadly, up hill and down dale, to see my friend’s Jules’ new house.  As an interior-design-blogger-extraordinaire I can just imagine how brilliant it will […]

Marimekko mode

September 6, 2011


When I was in Sydney recently I visited Chee, Soon & Fitzgerald for a bit of a trip down memory lane; I used to drop by there when I worked in Surry Hills many years ago. My lovely and incredibly patient friends (hello Shelley & M) browsed genuinely in the tiny shop whilst I trawled […]


September 4, 2011


Here is my latest pastel based on an image I took at dusk on a stormy evening in peak hour traffic. There is something about the muted colours and the contrast of the blurred shapes with the scribbly sharp lights that I love. The highlights aren’t easy to achieve with pastel but somehow the essence […]

Eight ‘o’s and 3 ‘l’s

August 28, 2011


What has them? This place, Woolloomooloo. Taken about 10 years ago with my little camera, this is how you compiled a panorama in those days. None of that fancy photo-stitching back then. I took these from the Domain – the finger wharf in its pre-spruced up condition. This is one of my favourite place names. If […]

I really believe…

August 26, 2011


Some unashamed girliness in honour of a beautiful warm sunny day and my freshly made bed. In the vase is some virburnum tinus (aptly named Spring Bouquet) from my garden. I’m renewing the friendship with my old pillow shams with ties at the back. Maybe this evening I’ll light my ‘golden’ tealight I bought from my […]

Color by numbers

August 15, 2011


I found this cross-stitch kit at Rozelle Markets one fine Saturday and picked it up for huge $3. Spurred on by my successful completion of a small image of Santa’s head (…not a sentence I ever anticipated writing) I thought it might be satisfying to try something bigger. Bigger and more complex. Complex in the […]

Glass half full

June 12, 2011


Ahh. The last days of summer. A glass of crisp rose and a glorious warm sunset. Oh, and the company; I wasn’t drinking alone, people. One of my favourite memories from the season. (Surprised my little pixelly-challenged phone camera could almost capture it.)

New prints – peek

May 14, 2011


This is a small pictorial summary of my day at the studio minus the messy ink rolling and cleaning up bits. It was fun to hang up all my prints on the ‘washing line’; it was pretty full once I’d finished. And there may have been some singing along to my iPod prior to the arrival […]

Little gem

May 10, 2011


Where am I? At an old school, a country homestead, a laneway cafe in Melbourne or a dance hall in Belize? When I pop these pics together I find it hard to believe that they are all taken in the same place. But they are and it is a pretty special little place that I […]
