Ah, Saturday, you were grand… we had the February Fete with ceramist Kylie of Paper Boat Press at her shop/gallery over at Ashgrove, Brisbane…. my gosh, was it a crazy busy day… these lovely shots on the blog were actually not captured by me this time I was a little busy wrapping and packing and hanging out with lovely customers… they were shot by the talented Ashley Oostdyck - thank you Ash x
… a few weeks ago while chatting over a glass or three of red wine Kylie and I decided we should do something together, a collaboration of sorts; we came up with a ‘february fete’, where I bring my caravan Frankie over to her studio/shop and we ‘bang out our wares’ so to speak; my old wares and Kylie’s handmade ceramics; we put it out there through our social media avenues and come Saturday morning we both really didn’t know how it was going to pan out…. eeeekk
… let’s just say that the power of local community is where it is at…. Ashgrove – who would of thought! We were both so overwhelmed by everyone who came out to see us and to take part in the little suburban fete….it felt like a really good party… seriously and I have been to a lot of parties in my time….there were so many familiar faces and so many new faces too….. lots of laughter, music and excitement…the buzzing corner block literally went off…
…. thank you so much to all who came out to see us… we are going to plan another one for later in the year…it really was that much fun …. sometimes good things do come from having a few too many glasses of wine with friends….
So… whatcha doing this Saturday?….. Well, I’m keeping it local by heading over to my friend Paper Boat Press’s shop/gallery with Frankie the caravan…. we are teaming up to put on an old school fete….. I’m going to be spilling out on to the sidewalk with all of my beautiful old wares and Paper Boat Press will have her stunning ceramic pieces inside the gallery…. Come on over if you are in the ‘good hood’…. there will be old fashion coconut ice and ‘pull your teeth out’ toffee too!
Something rather fun is bubbling away for next Saturday…Frankie the caravan and I are heading over to boutique ceramic studio Paper Boat Press at Ashgrove in Brisbane and are hosting a little local fete…. I will be setting Frankie up out the front of the corner shop with all of our old wares… and Paper Boat Press will be inside the shop with all of her incredibly beautiful handmade pieces. Nothing beats a low-fi fete. Would love to see you there..

Tasmania; you are the first cab off the rank… can’t wait!
Spaces are limited, I would run, not walk $120 per person.
Yes, postcards from the road…. I have been travelling around country Victoria shooting houses and the vast Australian landscape for a project I am working on….
… if you don’t follow me on instagram (I think you should), or don’t have instagram(mum) then this is what I have been sharing online….
… I came across the most beautiful collection of feathers from a house I was shooting…. love nature and the perfection of the colours and pattern combinations….
… spent the most magical afternoon with about 24 horses in a random paddock…. that is what jumping fences will give you – pure majestic happiness and animal awe….
… sometimes you just need more height…. sorry hire car…eeek
…. found the most intriguing ‘man shed’ with a wonderful collection of old bones and skulls…. my favourite is the top left – an intact found kangaroo paw…
