I found this lovely new blog Thatch and Burrow and discovered a clip of Nathalie Lete painting a mural - and you know how we love this Parisian's work....

Miso









I went to see an installation entitled 'Tchusse' at the Gorker Gallery in Fitzroy by the very young and talented Miso. If you live in Melbourne it is defiantly worth a visit. Miso gave a talk on her inspiration and influence from the Ukraine (her home land) and all though by her own admittance she hangs around mostly with boys and doesn't even know many woman, I found her work to be very feminine and beautiful. It was full of textures, layers and emotion. All this at the tender age of 20. wow. I was so moved I actually bought my first piece of real art from an exhibition. And reminded myself that art matters.

a house full of girls


Sorry about the lack of blogging over the last few days but we have had our hands full! The market went down a storm and out little Sweet William stand won Best Stall for visual display, we were pleased as punch, hurrah for us!! We will load some images as soon as we have them all organised. In the mean here's a shot of a funny collection of little dolls I have in my house at the moment - it symbolises the fact that we have a house full of girls - my three, Shelley and her two. Phew, girly girls all round.
