Real living feature - Thanks KIDO you rock!

What are the chances of your magazine subscription running out the issue before the one you are featured in!!! Pretty good if your me! BUT thankfully, I have some wonderful friends who spotted my knitted cacti in the current issue of Real Living Magazine. A bigger than King-Kong thanks to the KIDO team for featuring my work. New stock arriving to their stores soon.....mwahhh!

Small, Med and Large Cacti in white pots, they look so good in this arrangement!

Parker Palm Spring - oh yes please!

Can you imagine a more fabulous way to holiday? The Parker, Palm Springs. Croquet anyone? 

How to play Croquet like an English man
  1. Order a Pimms Cup.
  2. Remark superciliously that "Six Wicket Croquet is really an American game."
  3. There are two teams, one player and one ball. Order of play is order of colors on wicket.
  4. Each Player/Team takes turn going through course as follows: You have the choice of advancing your ball, or knocking the crap out of your opponent's. Each round is one shot. However, you are awarded an immediate extra shot for every wicket you pass through.
The game ends when the first Player/Team either
(a) passes twice through all 6 wickets
(b) orders a third Pimms Cup or,
(c) complains about the quality of American theater.

Our staff is available to settle disputes, provide copies of the official rules, and offer additional libations.

I have been spring cleaning these last few months....sadly I have to let go of the old to make space for the new...(well new old things that is, if you know what I mean).

Sitting Cub Side...Market Sale Ladies, Kellie, Melissa and Me!

It's been an ongoing tradition of mine, along with my close friends Melissa and Kellie to hold a Camberwell market stall at least once a year.

We are trying to teach Charley his ABC's, kind of stuck on A at the moment. Hopefully we have more luck than his 123's. Or as Charley likes to recite two, eight, two....

I like these ABC's for me.

Alphabet: 25 Postcards

Here is the alphabet imagined as never before. Choreographed by the beautiful dancer Milca Mayerová into a brilliant photo-ballet in twenty-four hypnotic poses. Each move in the dance is made to the visual counterpoint of Karel Teige’s astonishing typographic music: as angular as jazz, as syncopated as Stravinsky

Sparkle like a diamond

Some ladys like to wear diamonds, I would prefer to hang them from the ceiling.
