This photo was taken of me when I was three years old. My Dad's best friend worked up in the Northern Territory with the National Park Service as well as working alongside the local indigenous people. The young girls in the picture came to visit my parents with him, all the way from the Northern Territory. (That's about 4000km away, or 2,500 miles - that's a really, really long way away when you're three) I was thrilled to meet my new friends and have a distinct memory of this moment actually happening, not just from the photo. Check out those cute dresses! And my awesome T-Shirt!! And that 70's couch! The wood paneling! LOVE. x
There is some kind of nostalgia in the air. In the past couple of weeks, I've watched Midnight Cowboy, Thelma And Louise and The Goonies. I woke up with Harry Nilsson's "Everybody's Talkin'" in my head this morning. And now I have an irresistible urge to watch Harold And Maude again. It's one of my absolute favourite films. Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon are both adorable in it. I hope that when I'm 79 years old that I'm at least half as cool as Maude.

I know what you're thinking, a feet photo... Well, let me say, these aren't just any feet. These feet had their first EVER pedicure on the weekend, so I thought I ought to show them off. I love the fuzzy moss that grows between the bricks in my yard, it's so soft and green, it's great when nature reclaims man(and lady)-made environments.
Well, it's the weekend and I have a lot of work to do on Kitty & Buck, there will be some updates to the design and layout over the coming days/weeks as I get it all organised. I have done a little about page, so take a look, and meet the kitties and me... and I'll introduce you to the rest of the family soon. I have a delivery of vintage fabric arriving in the next few days, and just did a bit of a supplies top-up today, so I'll be busy making some bits, which I'll share next week! The second half of my weekend is action-packed with sewing, painting and shooting some stop-motion sequences for a graphics package I'm doing for a documentary on people who collect things... Not that I'd know anything about that ;) Don't forget to check the about page here and feel free to tell me stuff below. x
