The Greenhouse.

Hello again patient friend! How are you?

I’m good, busy, but good. And I’ve become obsessed with gardening. For the first time in my life, I have my own (little) garden. And I love it more than I ever thought I could. If I’m stuck in traffic, instead of planning my dinner, I think about what I can do to juzz it up. How’s that for old age kicking in?

Especially inspiring is Wendy’s Garden (bottom two photos). A derelict piece of land Wendy Whiteley (artist Brett Whiteley’s widow) secretly started landscaping by Sydney Harbour. A tiny haven in the middle of a crazy city. Hi ho hi ho, it’s off to the nursery we go.

Brooch The Subject.

I know they’ve been done a fair bit now, but I still love the idea of a vintage brooch bouquet – especially if it’s family heirloom treasures or special memories you’re carrying with you. Here are some instructions if you wanted to give it a go. My only advice: be über selective with your brooch choice!
