I have recently been visiting family and friends back on the mainland of Australia and it was so nice to catch up with them after 9 months of living here in Tasmania. I managed to do alittle shopping as well and bring back some pieces to sell on my market days.. One place I enjoyed visiting was my sister and brother in laws property in northern N.S.W My brother in law has been busy over time building a lovely stone wall around a vegie patch. His most recent additions was these lovely tin garden beds made for there fast growing and ageing tropical birch trees They turned out looking so rustic and aged...Love them.

With Autumn well on its way I have been busy cleaning and rearranging before the snuggling season arrives. I a have also been busy hunting and gathering bits and pieces for the markets. I do find it hard some weeks here in tasmania to find what Im looking for. The mainland does give you more options, so I think when we hit the mainland this christmas The trailer will be coming with us. These mirrors in the pictures below were an antique gold in colour, so I gave them a makeover with a soft grey. I do love how they turned out.

A change is in the air with Autumn on the way, I love the crisp mornings and evenings, and the change in the trees leaves,, I have thinking of changes within myself of late to. We moved down to Tasmania some 7months ago and I have had my ups and downs emotionally as well.I guess Im still trying to find my feet here and struggle with that somedays,.And with that ... I am looking for ways to create a business from my creations to but with so many things that I can do Its finding just one thing or acouple to focus my time on perfecting. I have worked so many years in factories sewing repetitious work that I find it hard now to just stick to making just one thing.. Does anyone else feel this way to?? I did however recently muck around with some Linen and created these tags that I have added to my Old french doors shop on etsy..
