Macaroons and An Unexpected Gift.

Had coffee with a friend last week at the portrait gallery and was surprised with this lovely gift - a vintage table cloth in a fab kitsch print that immediately inspired several textile projects (all stalled at the theoretical stage but still....). Wrapped cutely I was quite beside myself with this unsolicited gift.
A gorgeous Spring day, good company, cultured surroundings, a pretty green pot of camomile tea, a $3.50 pink macaroon and a cool retro gift.

That's a lovely tablecloth. Can you believe I haven't ever had a macaroon? Must remedy that.

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!

Robyn Lea — Bohemian Living.

Just as I decide to commit to a more minimalist way of living I discover Robyn Lea's gorgeous book Bohemian Living and I just don't stand a chance. The showcasing of 20 artists and their homes —Australian and International — plus their art and there I am, back again, craving colour, clutter and limitless creativity.

Are Ears The New Black?

Hooray! It appears girls with sticky outy ears can now come out of hiding. If the above photos in this months British Vogue are anything to go by the long wait is over. No need to be shy anymore. Such Good News (not personally you understand...I'm just pleased for those poor unfortunate girls who now can take their hats and headbands's nothing to me...).
