... has opened! Curated by the lovely 'Craft Rock Star' herself! So very eloquently spoken about here. (some lovely photos too) If you look, you can see 'haus frau' hanging up in the rafters, where she should be. We'll be down in Melbourne a week on Saturday. I've got a 'to-see-and-do-list' so long! Can't wait!

I can't believe I passed up a vintage Thredbo souvenir tea towel at the Oppy today, because it was $4.00 instead of the usual $2.00. I'll go have a look tomorrow and see if it's still there. What are the odds?
Ever since Victoria showed her vintage caravan, I've been dreaming of getting one. It's not so much the sea-side holidays, it's making the curtains, putting down vintage lino, playing with the old gas stoves tops, that sort of thing. Then there's the idea of just going away, where ever, when ever.

'Go Yabba Yabba' is on in the back ground as I write, they are singing 'hands to yourself, keep your hands to yourself'. very catchy, think I'll be singing this for a while...
So ... I watched 'Australian Story' on Monday night, it was about a young girl who committed suicide at 18. I've been thinking about the family and the story this week.
So, that's my 'Ticked of Thursday'!

An art work I really like from Parker this week. I'm just fascinated by the way she writes her name, look at the 'k' - it's like a spider! She's the quirkiest little person. But she's been very 'emo' this past week. Pulling my hair out type stuff, she does this every now and again, think it's just a mental growth spurt, usually after a week or so, she comes good again, so just riding this one out, exercising the 'Time Out' method, and hoping that things improve before the school hols start. Things are pretty quiet on the home front at the moment, I'm busy making dresses for summer - so should have some craft to show soon. We're going to Cirque de Soliel on Saturday, so I guess Parker may formulate an idea in her head that she'd like to run off with the Circus, I had the same plan, but the Circus I'd been to had weird clowns, bearded ladies and smelly, unhappy animals. Don't think I would have been happy in the long run!
