Home is calling

Home sweet home, once was London , once was West Kirby( my beach), I get to visit both places in 7 weeks time , after nearly a 2 year absence.
I was clearly out some things and found a poem about London life.

Everyone meet Occy

This is my little kitty, well not so little anymore. Mr Occy at the grand old age of six months old. We got him from a rescue center after xmas, he truly is amazing. He is obsessed with the bath, eating moths and is always waking me up at 4 am with kisses. I really don't know what I would do with out my little man now.
Next week he will be old enough to venture out in to the big outdoors, let the adventures begin...

Hanging Jewels, hidden treasures

I'm having a love affair with jewerly at the moment, I can't seem to stop obsessing over Samantha Wills and Cool Baby Cool ( see images above) and thanks to The Selby I get to have sneak peak at one of my favorite designers Natalie Wood jewel collection too.
I'm collecting all sorts and my favorite buy of the month is a Golden heart necklace.. Im even toying with the idea of doing a night class in jewerly design, so watch this space...

Back in the day

I was rooting around some old work I did while I was designing for Gap and stumbled across these mood boards, think they might inspire me the second time round.

Love me Love my bike Ida Flower

I love my bike Ida Flower, she is red and looks just like this drawing, which I didnt draw and cant remember now where I found it, but none the less I love this pic.
I ride my old bicycle with only 2 gears everywhere, the joys of not owning a drivers licence at the age of nearly 30. Well Ida keeps me fit, helps me avoid public transports and keep my spare change for buying red candles and second hand picture frames.

So I just wanted to take the time and thank my bike for giving me my freedom, keeping me fit and always putting a smile on my face when I get to ride along the beautiful river everyday on my way to work..

I love you Ida Flower and I promise to oil your joints at least once this year if I remember xxx

Life comes, Life goes...


Live life always, don't forget we get just one shot.
Happyiness is a gift to be treasured lock it up tight in a jar. Remember your roots they will always ground you.
Love can happen just once, when you find it never forget the beginning.
Live in the future not in the past, remember who can make you laugh when your down, go to quite place every once and while it will help you smile.
Death haunts us all but when it happens it makes everyone else stronger and gives the lucky ones second chances.
People never really leave you , just by with the changes of the wind.
Memories can stay with you and hold you when you sleep alone.
The future is bright, we may leave others behind and carry on but we never forget.
Chase your dream and when you get it, hold it with both hands..

Happy Easter


What perfect Easter weekend.
Spent friday in Byron Bay , beach, breakfast with friends from home, lighthouse at sunset and a beautiful rainbow plus we bumped into Donavan Frankenreiter at Billabong, where he happened to be signing posters and chatting with his fans, he let us have a quick photo, ex pro surfer turned muso, and now he is lending his talents to Billabong, designing Tee's and for the record what a lovely guy!!
Back to Brisbane for roast dinner with the family and to top the whole weekend of Beuna Vista social club last night, what a gig, they blew me away, I really felt like I had been let into a secret and I don't think I will ever beat that kinda gig again.

Happy Easter xx
