What's Hot/What's Not
Jane Campion's new film Bright Star about John Keats and the love of his life, Fanny Brawne. I was able to see an early viewing and I love, loved it. Basically I sat their for two hours (okay, there were some tears)and just let the film wash over me. Campion has a way of capturing certain feelings and senses on film: washing drying in the wind, lots of close-ups of busy hands sewing, sunlight drifting through curtains, rain falling. The love story itself unfolds beautifully.
I put Harry Potter on the CD player and got cracking. This year I spent a bit more time choosing pretty cards and got one of those dinky wax seals. It took a few cards before I got the swing of it, but in the end, they came up well...if you don't count the few that caught fire. We don't count those.
OH SEW PRETTY
Finding Melissa's lovely creations on Flickr. Here is one seriously talented maker.
THE BLACK APPLE'S FANCY WEARABLES
I missed out on the girl with the birds but scored a pretty locket with a classic Black Apple portrait instead. Very pleased.
Kitty Daisy & Lewis. Three teenage siblings that play a mash of swing, Hawaiian, rock n roll. Seriously. One listen is all it takes. They're coming to Melbourne but I missed out on tickets. Doh!
HAULING rocks. We rocked out our tiny front garden. Looks great - rocks heavy.
WOEFULLY underestimating the time involved in making Christmas ornaments as gifts. Yeah. Not gonna happen.
All in all. More Hot than Not. Nice.
