Three Etsy Things : Soup Bowls
As much as I love the long sunny days of summer (and living in the sparkling harbour city of Sydney how could I not?), I do get a bit excited when the nights cool and the light softens. I adore autumn. Partly because of the gorgeously coloured leaves and th...
As much as I love the long sunny days of summer (and living in the sparkling harbour city of Sydney how could I not?), I do get a bit excited when the nights cool and the light softens. I adore autumn. Partly because of the gorgeously coloured leaves and that misty, filtered sunshine.

Death by Doxie : Ferdi's Birthday
It was Ferdi's birthday last month. He turned eight, which is younger than I thought he was so yay! We are may be crazy dog people but we don't go over the top for the dogs birthdays. There's no cake or party or singing. They do normally get a treat - a raw...

My...Morning Routine
The post is a bit tricky for me to write, because the honest truth is I don't have a morning routine. I, we, don't have a routine at all. There's no alarm set at the same time every morning, because every morning is different.  Some mornings we have a full ...

Three Etsy Things : Baskets
There's a lot of Etsy angst going around right now (see  here , for example). People are talking about how this once idyllic haven for artists and crafters seems to have become a mega site full of cheap mass produced crap. They're talking about whether it's...

People are talking about how this once idyllic haven for artists and crafters seems to have become a mega site full of cheap mass produced crap.

SYD V MEL : Weather Awareness
Yesterday was a really hot day; the kind of day where you sweat buckets just thinking about walking down the street. It was hot, and humid. So - how many Sydneysiders did I see dressed in ankle boots, black jeans and long sleeve tops? Too many to count. Yes...
Yesterday was a really hot day; the kind of day where you sweat buckets just thinking about walking down the street. It was hot, and humid. So - how many Sydneysiders did I see dressed in ankle boots, black jeans and long sleeve tops? Too many to count. Yes, technically it's autumn but it was ...

Jorpins365 : February Favourites
February, what a cloudy, rainy, sticky month you were. And a fabulous one too. Actually, I'm a bit sad to see you go. Trips to the beach, birthday lunches, neighbourhood wanderings, soft morning light, afternoons in the pool - yep, you were alright. Come ba...

Done! : Jabulani Challenge
On the Saturday just gone I participated in the Jabulani Challenge by walking 22 kilometres through Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Part of me wants to say it doesn't really mean anything because the 'real' participants ran the whole course, or because the...

Jorpins365 : March Favourites
March. You started in Melbourne and finished in Hong Kong (hurrah!). You were a mixed bag of complete and utter exhaustion and really exciting fun times; lots of opportunities and things to say yes please! too (more on all that in another post, when I'm not...

Death by Doxie : Dogs On FloBro*
Our hounds are, of course, hounds of taste and distinction. As such they know good textile design when they see it, so this bench seat - featuring Florence Broadhurst's Japanese Bamboo print - has fast become one of their favourite spots in the house. At le...
Our hounds are, of course, hounds of taste and distinction. As such they know good textile design when they see it, so this bench seat - featuring Florence Broadhurst's Japanese Bamboo print - has fast become one of their favourite spots in the house. At least I'm pretty sure it's because of ...

In Training : Jabulani Challenge (Why Training Plans Are Ace)

One of my 15 things to get done in the Year of the Sheep is to complete three walking events. My first one is coming up in April. It's the Jabulani Challenge - I'm doing the 22km trail run walk. It's only my second event ever, and it's my first ever trail walk. And it's only 32 days away.

Death by Doxie : Elfi's Couch
Up at the very top of our house is a little room where most of these blog posts are written. Actually, it's not that little; it's our attic space and it's awesome. I've got my desk up there, along with all my various craft supplies - stamps and wool and pap...
