Magella's House.


These are some photos I took of my friend Magella's house before she sold it. It was one of the few heritage listed houses is Canberra and I always loved going there. So did my kids. Kind of like visiting an eccentric grandma's house  you could just spend the day exploring. Magella just has such a great eye for beauty and collecting and the whole wabi sabi thing. Not that you can tell from these photos. I took heaps and they all turned out pretty crappy due to my amateur camera and my crappy amateur photography skills. Still I wanted to post a few here just to remind myself how much I loved this gorgeous old house.

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.
