It feels like ages since I blogged. I've been in a state of flux. I've closed my Etsy store for the meantime, as we're moving soon - I'm feeling strangely guilty not doing anything apart from dream jewellery-wise. This morning I went for a walk - this gorgeous beach will be one of the only things I'll miss about where we live - apart from the proximity to some of my dear friends. I'm so ready to move on! Tomorrow my boys will be having a Transition Day at their new schools, and I will have my first shift at my new work - everything is changing, and I think for the first time in my life - I'm not scared. Overwhelmed at times? Absolutely. But scared? No. I'm ready to move, and to move on, and I can't wait to see what the future will bring for me and my gorgeous family.

PS: I have started some very preliminary sketches for my first collection, which will tentatively be released in December/January. Stay tuned!

Jim Morrison

I just finished this amazing biography of Jim Morrison. I've always been a Doors fan, but never realised just how ground breaking they were. I was fascinated with Jim's ill-fated relationship with Pamela Courson.

Images found here, here, and here.

Verner Panton

It's with a heavy heart I report that we didn't get this house. But, while on the lookout for cool, mid century modern pieces, I came across designer Verner Panton.

Found here, here and here.

Less 365 - Week 3

A little behind with this! (but I have been decluttering)

Pictured here are a steamer, a honey pot (bought for being delightfully cute but never used), an odd plate (not sure where it came from), a set of 8 cream napkins, an old baking tray past its best, a pizza stone stand, and a battery charger - the batteries disappeared years ago.

My husband came in as I was photographing this, and didn't want most of this thrown out - he's taken them up to the apartment he's using while in Angaston - I hope I don't see any of it at our new house!

Home Love by Megan Morton

I borrowed this wonderful book from the library, not expecting it to be anywhere near as inspiring and motivating. I now have this on back order from the Book Depository, I simply must own my own copy! you can also buy it here, which I might end up doing if it doesn't come into stock soon!

In the meantime, I have this link bookmarked to read more about Megan.

Less 365 - Week 2

This week the photograph below only accounts for a very small amount of items that I have delcuttered, donated, thrown away or recycled. My oldest son was away for the weekend - for the Pedal Prix - so I took advantage of it and reorganised and cleaned his room thoroughly. He was not impressed, but I managed to recycle, throw out, and donate about 3 1/2 garbage bags full...let's see how much he notices is gone, seeing as he knew "exactly where his stuff was".

This week my photo above is of 5 scarves that I did not wear even once this winter, and two handbags I haven't used for at least 3 years...possibly more like 5. Off they go to the Salvos!

New Designs

My goodness, I am so behind with updating my new designs...these are a selection from the past month or so (please click on the images if you want more information about these :) )

I've noticed I've used lots of yellow in these designs...maybe because it's decidedly Spring here?

H.R. Giger

Famous for his work on Ridley Scott's Alien, H.R. Giger's disturbing work blends monsters, mechanisms, and erotica together in nightmarish scenes.
