We have lived here in our beautiful old lady of a house for 11 years, the Hoya is celebrating with Fiona & Barry’s Imagine Peace weathergrams and Bronwyn Berman’s beautifully beaded and bound river stone
with so many flowers happening this year!
and we have privacy from the upstairs bedroom window at last!
love how Madeleine set up Holding the Moon at the Collectors Choice show at Artsite
moonsong sold to a museum curator & conservator of textiles and paper from Western Australia,
last year she bought Once in a Blue Moon & the chicken & the egg in 2017
hoping there will be photos of the opening to post soon & thanks to everyone who came along
but the sad news is my beautiful sister in law Debbie had a stroke just as she and my brother Mike were getting ready to go to my Mom’s for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, she is in ICU, x fingers she will make a full recovery!

crook as Rookwood

Old Man Crow and I are both crook as Rookwood (a cemetery in Sydney)
these photos are of a magical gathering of crows at Waverley Cemetery  back in 2006
a fantastic view from the clifftops
love the way the crows seemed to pose just for us
totemic beings
x fingers we’ll start feeling better soon!
NB feeling crook is Aussie slang for feeling sick with a dreadful lurgy
& can also mean getting a scolding as in “my Mum went crook at me” which totally confounded me in a grammar test when I first went to school in Melbourne back in 1969 (nearly 50 years ago!)

the good news is the framer did a great job framing Beauty
for All is [not] Black & White at Artsite
but I was way too out of it at the opening on Sunday to get any decent photos
this beautiful thank you card and clay scrolls mounted on a piece of Silky Oak
just arrived in the mail from Fiona Dempster of Paper Ponderings
with such good timing my beautiful friend!

love came today in a brown paper parcel from Fiona Dempster
Fiona and her partner Barry bring hope for peace and love in all their work
love is all we need
love revealed
Fiona’s own heartbeat script beautifully backstitched
from the other side
Fiona’s love meeting the gathering of dreams
you can see her accordion fold book “Peace Is Every Step” on the top shelf
Fiona has more words and photos for love over on her blog today
Hope Care and Kindness letterpress cards by Fiona

the crepe myrtle branch seasoning for the dream

Honesty
the stairs with Mia Illuzia’s 7 hag stones and Barry Smith’s water buffalo horn talisman for peace and love
Old Man Crow working on a new song in his music room
afternoon sun through the wrought iron on the front verandah
the Jacaranda from two doors up purpling the view from the bedroom window with two species of Brugmansia, the garden has grown a lot in 9 years

Hoya flower
the Gardenias are flowering madly, the scent is divine
