More Brooch Making.


I've been inspired by my last brooch making effort for Susie's Brooch Swap, and all the encouraging comments, to make another one. This time for my four year old niece, Clara. Something about the pink hair, alabaster skin and long black lashes made it hers before it was done. Plus living in Sydney I don't get to see her nearly enough so must send up little treats to reserve that place she has in her heart for me till I see her next! Its on it's way up now...

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!











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 off...it's nothing to me...).

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.
