I always look forward to reading your blog, I love the way you transform furniture and share your methods! I am a country girl living in Perth - you know the saying "can't take the country out of the girl........"!! Country life is something to hold onto. Good luck for your future, it's great you are getting into home decor mags and are able to share your work and home.
Roberta, I will be in touch to organise the delivery of your Painting DIY books and necklace pendant. As you have already purchased one of my tablecloths, I can either refund you the cost, still send you one for you to give a friend or make you a table cloth in a different design. Let's chat via email.
I have had some lovely emails from people lately also and my facebook page has been going bonkers. I think people find facebook an easy way to keep tabs on blogs they like. Several people say they used to live in the Inner West and like that I share snippets of our beautiful Sydney life. I always think I don't do that enough. Here are some recent photos (a lot have been shared on Instagram already).
We are a street block and a stroll through Callan Park to the harbour. There is a 7km walk around the water and over Iron Cove bridge that is called the Bay Walk or Bay Run (depending on your fitness level). It is a very lovely walk today (although slightly busy at times) and every time I do it I wonder why I don't do it more often. Charlie and I will be doing it this morning after school drop off.
This greenery below is in Callan Park. It is a large diverse park that used to house a mental hospital and no houses the Sydney Colleg of the Arts. When we bought our house I used to think when I'm 50 I'll do a fine art degree. well very soon I am turning 46 and I don;t think more study will be happening in 4 years time. But we do love living so close to this gorgeous space. It makes up for our small backyard!
This jetty is at the base of Callan park on the Bay Run at King George Oval. It's lovely living so close to the water.
looking from Glebe to Anzac bridge.
I'll share some more about Lilyfield soon.
