Hey there good lookin’

The gorgeous Genna P. models my Ship Song pendant. What a spunk!

If you think she looks good, you should hear how she sounds. Catch her band Ruthie-ma-Toothie whenever you get the chance for a fantastic gig.

After a pretty poor showing at the Twilight Markets where only the brave and bold soldiered on, a pretty little birdy whispered to me about a market happening tomorrow.

And hey presto! I have a stall at Fruitopia, run by Tropical Fruits Inc. The pitch goes something like this:

With only a hop-skip and sashay from the onset of spring, this August Tropical Fruits will be hosting a fun day for GLBT fruity families, friends, and pooches.  After the huge success of our inaugural Fruitopia Fair Day last year – a fabulous fun day for the Tropical Fruits Community which raised nearly $3,000 for the Tropical Fruits Land Fund – FRUITOPIA returns bigger and better than ever on SUNDAY, AUGUST 28.

To be held at the Lismore Showgrounds between 9am-4pm, the fair day will be a FUNdraising event for the ‘Erif Benham Memorial Land Fund: A Home For Tropical Fruits’.  Fruitopia offers a cornucopia of fruity delights, playing host to a range of market stalls, dog shows, lookalike competitions, kids games, drag shows, live music, DJs, face painting, raffles, Trash and Treasure and the not-to-be-missed ACON ‘Cake My Day’ Bake-Off.  Dog Show registration is at 9:30am for at 10am start, with categories including best dressed, look alike, best singing dog and musical bales.

And here is the pretty picture:

Personally I’m looking forward to the singing dog competition. Their owners were bound to teach them some pretty sweet show tunes.

Is it strange that my biggest concern right now is what to wear?

So those in the Lismore area, come along, sounds like it will be an absolute blast!

Working on adding links in new categories. I am especially excited about the “Terra Australis” category which highlights blogs from around the country. So many clever and pretty people. Also added is a “Shop” section where you can find the sweetest goods.


A work in progress as I discover more and more wonderful destinations!

Pretty pins

In the midst of adding heaps of hair clips on my madeit and Blue Caravan stores. If my cat will let me type that is.

Love and loss in paperback

Victim of the mould!

I have finally decided that the books cannot stay in boxes any longer. I’ve spent the day unpacking my Art and non-fiction titles, which were drastically reduced and consigned to second hand bookstores when I moved. Sadly after being boxed for almost six months in the garage some of the books were damaged. Mould is a real problem and so is swelling. I had to trash some of them which made me very sad. It seems that mostly the cloth bound titles are in trouble. On the plus side they will be all out soon and there are ways to combat mould. The titles I lost weren’t difficult to find (Angela Carter and Saki) so I have already added them to my Book Depository wish list.

I began the mammoth job of unpacking the fiction last night and have shelved two bookcases worth without bothering to sort them. Even with that little unpacked I found I had several titles that I had more than one copy of, so Sonya, I hope you like getting books!

I’ve also been making hair clips as my work is appearing in a magazine shortly, so it would make sense to ensure I have stock on the different sites.

Last week I went to an antiques and collectibles show in Alstonville. There wasn’t that much to rave about there. I did, however, get some creepy shots of stuffed things that I will post soon.
