    Wow! A great treasure trove here, Mo! I’m inspired by by the rope room divider because I’ve been gathering bits and pieces for years for a divider and this has reminded me to make a start. Tracy Deep – absolutely love her work, so pleased you’ve shared this. And Seasonal Concepts looks brilliant – I’m going to check out your link now. What a lovely post, Mo! Oh, and Caldecott has always been a great favourite with me, just charming…

      the frog he would a woo-ing go was the first poem we had to memorize in primary school, I remember feeling daunted because it’s so l-o-n-g & it seemed an impossible feat at first but somehow we learn to remember through repetition and it is embedded in my head and heart still!
      look forward to seeing your room divider of collected things & don’t miss Tracey’s show, it’s all new work and her best yet!

      Tracey is brilliant, her soul is shining very bright, I love her wind poem, had to put my glasses on to see if it wasn’t a large variety of Tillandsia aka Spanish moss, her sensitivity to Nature comes through no matter what materials she uses, her use of ghost nets is particularly poignant as they do so much damage in the oceans

    Yesterday the treasures of the bush, today the treasures of the town. Both inspiring.

    I second Prue Gibson’s words “Remember to breathe” … for these images can indeed take one’s breath away.

    Thank you, as always, for the keen eye you bring to sharing the art in your world

  7. How did you manage to get away without the white Peacock?

    Oooh what a wander! Love Tracey’s work and then that shop…and the library too! Buzzing buzzing in Spring it seems!

    I don’t know quite where to start! How is it that some people can clump odd things together and make it “work” and other people’s odd things just look…well, odd?
