happy holidays y'all

Xmas came and went so fast and I didn't quite get around to a Xmas tree, so this antique carved wooden deer head became it. It's one of a pair bought back from Bali. We always regret not buying travel momentoes, so went for it and spent the last day walking around trying to find suitcases to fit them into....ha. The carvings are Javanese and they would have sat either side of a house to keep the bad spirits away.

It's been a long process but we are finally in the midst of landscaping our garden (just to make things more hectic before Xmas). Think mid century Palm Springs with organic shapes, crazy paving, rock features and some nice lawn for Ivy to crawl about on. Here are some inspiration pics. I'll let you know if we came anywhere close...minus the spectacular views!

rockstars and smoke

This was a fun Buxom job illustrated a while ago for the inner rock chick. Think 'the Runaways' meets 80's glam. I just noticed it's now being sold in the US here.

Plus more products released, Samantha's Smoky Eye kit available also in the US here.

gift swap

If you're wondering why I'm a bit slack on the blog front these days, it's because work has been busy, we've had family stay and my 9 month old is taking up more time especially now she's crawling (which is cute but tiresome).

So I'll try and post a few things to make up for it! A few weeks ago Beci and I did a gift swap. I sent a little folksy embroidery her way and in return this cute yellow fellow turned up. Aint blogland swell?
