Monday Owlness

Beautiful owl bookends by maushomevintage found via Love Elycia

Come on spring, do your thing...

This spring we will have homegrown strawberries!

The next month is going to be buzzingly busy and I hope that the coming of spring is going to bring me the energy boost I will need to get through. Between clinical labs, placement, submitting portfolios, moving house and going down to Sydney for a Metallica concert (not my idea), i'm hoping there will still be time for little stolen moments of crafting and daydreaming.

Very excited though, beneath all the trepidation , especially about our new house, decorating the sunroom and long weekend strolls on the beach. Being busy is good for me, I just need to keep reminding myself that I CAN DO THIS and do it well!

Good morning, tea?

Taking things little by little today. Trying to balance work with play so that I don't end up in limbo and doing neither.

Monday Owlness

My dream quilt cover from Branch Handmade

Had a wonderful, relaxing weekend out at Tamworth, visiting the farm owned by my sweethearts "second family". Now today it's back to the business of uni work and house hunting. We had a look at a fantastic place at lunchtime today, so fingers crossed we get the lease!

Meh. I'd much rather drown in a sea of vintage fabric and crocheted granny squares than attempt anything that is on my large and bewildering (I don't want) to do list.

After a failed attempt at procrastibaking which left me with a half burnt-half liquid mess of jam and coconut slice, I pretty much decided to write off the day. Which would be lovely if I didn't have an assignment due on Friday and a dire need for the proceeds of my tax return. Which of course requires me to lodge it!

So i've been playing around with photographs of the fabric that I don't quite have the motivation to use to make something pretty. Oh dear, Victoria.

Monday Owlness

I just couldn't resist these little hand-stamped owls when I stumbled upon them in the lovely meldewdesigns etsy shop. They are now available in a gorgeous array of colours too.

I can't wait 'til these little guys turn up in my letterbox and I'm thinking of turning them into a little garland. Any other ideas on how I might use them?

Wah Wah Wears

I have really enjoyed wearing this necklace since I bought it at the first Finders Keepers Market in Sydney. I've been looking everywhere online for info on the creator of this lovely piece, but without any luck. So it is with much excitment that I have discoverered that the elusive Zoe Churchill is now selling her sweet ceramic Wah Wah Wears through Leeloo. Go check it out!

Monday Owlness

I just love everything I see in the Robin and Mould etsy store, especially this gorgeous owl tea-cozy. Mmmm... I'm off to brew myself a choc-chip chai tea now!
