New Corners

Always love a bit a green. When I get organised, I'm really going to try to keep some herbs alive in the garden...
Another corner - more tins. I think I need help!

A flock of tin birdies.

Martha, Martha, Martha.

Travelling South

This picture doesn't really capture much of what's been going on for the last two weeks. Emma and I moved from the country to the city. Goodbye grazing cows and vegie patch, hello cafes, trucks and city lights. Picking up the keys from the real estate agent's was so exciting. We've never owned our own home before and suddenly, everything took on a whole new sheen....''our'' door, ''our sloping lounge-room floor'', our ''rusted spouting''...

We've spent the last 2 weeks rushing from one room to another and back again, which is much more fun than it sounds. I can't wait to explore the area more...we can walk to our local cinema, heaps of shops - even a bookshop...we can see the bridge from our bedroom window and on Saturday, we went to the local organic market in the park.

The craft-room is up and running but I haven't made much - too busy being thrilled that almost everything little thing has its own spot. A real novelty.

It's nice to be back.

Em and I and a friend spent the day in Daylesford on Sunday - lovely and wintry day, dark clouds, autumn leaves, chocolate and bric-a-brac, old books and hot soup. I was standing in a bookshop...looking out the window when this flock flew past.

This is a photo from a magazine. It makes me feel relaxed just looking at it...but I'm not sure why. I love cool minty greens and the pinks with the honey colours and the exposed beams. Sigh. When we move to the new house (in less than 2 weeks) I'm going to make sure I bring a bit of green inside - doesn't have to be fancy flowers, just something to in a pretty vase.
