I've been rather recalcitrant in posting regular updates about my holidays but we have finally put all the photos on the computer and will start doing some posts soon...I'm working on an exhibition piece for Craft Vic (not assuming it will be accepted!) using vintage Australian and English tea towels. Being me of course I've barely started so will have to get cracking later today. Feeling quite run down today with sore throat and glands, didn't really get time to get over the flu before I arrived, but I can have lots of fruit later etc.
Going shopping this morning for some bits and pieces, quite excited about it as I don't buy (non-retro/vintage/second hand) clothes all that often.
Will write more soon....xxx

The weekend was mostly cold and rainy. Winter has definitely kicked in! Chris has been in with the flu so we didn't go out all that much.
- Prepping Polka Dot Rabbit consignments:
- I've been watching House of Elliot, the wonderful old BBC series set in the 1920's. It has the most blissful clothing! Pic from here
- Great catch up with Stephanie
- Lots of time in bed reading and sleeping
- Day dreaming about my holiday next week.
- Cooking turkey burgers, pumpkin soup and cake
Long weekends are great!

I love the products of Rafineese Tristee who recycle oil oil tins into seats and children's play equipement (sinks and stoves). Very cool way to reuse and recraft and I reckon these would be pretty easy to DIY.

I love these two works by Kate O Connor:
I adore this dress, it reminds me of Leanne's work on Project Runway last year.
