I love this pic of Jeanne Moreau and Henri Serre riding bicycles. Sadly, Australian photos with our compulsory helmets never look as carefree!

I think this pic of from the Courier Mail, it shows the dire situation that much of Queensland is in with the severe floods. If you're crafty and wanting to help out, Pip has put together an amazing list of auctions, resources and ways you can help over here. I'm not sure whether to do an auction or donate goods to other people's efforts, but I do know it will be a very long recovery process and every penny is needed.

So many gorgeous teapots!

Gorgeous needlepoint shoes. I'd be too scared to wear them outside, but hey.

My thoughts are with all the people affected by the Queensland/NSW floods. I will be doing a fundraiser at Polka Dot Rabbit shop next week with all proceeds going to victim relief, just need some time to make up some new stock. My th0ughts are with all those affected.

Things I like today: Some of the Best of 2010

I really enjoy writing my 'things I like today' blog posts. I love art and creativity and am in awe of so many creations. It might surprise you to know that I'm not a big shopper. I don't have closets full of clothing or massive collections of vintage wares. I just don't have the space (or cash) and besides, looking is sometimes just as much fun as owning. I decided to put together a post of some of my favourite findings of 201o. Hope you enjoy looking at them all!

There's some big bunnies!

Big Ramona Quimby fan
