eeeeek wooden treasures . . gotta love em.

Sophie Hill, a Launceston based bird-obsessed artist and lover of all things handmade is the beauty and brains behind the jewellery label That Vintage. She creates her unique pieces with her beautiful designs from the woodlands using Tasmanian Myrtle . These are the pieces I purchased recently, but, I have to tell you it was so hard to choose and will definately be going back for more soon.

I will not stop until all my friends are decked out in That Vintage. you can purchase her gear from etsy
or if you like actually visiting a shop she has a range of stockists around Australia.

At no time was I paid or pursuaded in any way to gratuitously promote That Vintage, I just do it out of a love of the product :).

Sushi Safari

I wake up and I am craving sushi, yes even before breakfast.
Quick trip to the Raptis Fish Markets pick up some fresh salmon, prawns and squid
Off to the asian market picked up some wasabi

With all the ingredients home we fry up the prawns, cut up the ingredients and cook the rice.

I set the table whilst Pete finishes off the presentation.

Yummy Sushi - pretty good for a first try don't you think?

Happy viewing :).

What a year. . . as you can see I have not posted on my blog for ages, I'm not going to give you any excuses, I just really haven't done anything blog worthy for a long time . . . until now that is.

I have recently begun painting a Traffic Control Box. If you live in Brisbane you will know what I am talking about as they are at every set of lights and most of them are already painted by others. Anyone can paint one please check out Urban Smart Projects for more information. http://www.urbansmartprojects.com/

My box is located on the corner of Compton Road and Roosevelt Drive in Stretton. You might be wondering why I decided to paint Rabbits on my box so I will explain. The box I chose is located across from the QLD State Archives, so I looked up their website and searched for anything interesting happening on my birth year. Unfortunatly I couldn't find anything that year, but 100 years before I was born 1878 was when Queensland brought in the Rabbit Nuisance Bill and therefore started fencing off the rabbits. I have named my work "Fenced Rabbits" and when it is finished the bunnies will have a fence in front of them. I will update the photos when it is complete.

Let me know what you think so far.

Oh year and Merry Christmas everyone.
