Where do you keep your letters?

This is an old window shutter that we found in the shed. It makes a wonderful letter holder for the hallway, so that when H comes home the letters (bills) are waiting for him. Otherwise they would get lost in the abyss that is our house. We put a backing on it and hung it crudely with copper wire.
I do have a habit of shoving other things in there too (like The Spice Girls CD cover face up so Haidee can't see). I must clean it up a bit.

Anywho, I just thought I'd share it with you all. Where do you keep your letters?

Playing with painting

I'm taking part in a little exhibition called "Postcards from Rylstone".  Local artists, parents and friends have been asked to contribute some work that will be auctioned off to raise funds for our local school. Here are two of my little artworks that will be auctioned off. I have a 3rd one but have handed it in already, will have to photograph it later (it's my fave)

Acrylic paint, pen, tea bags, vintage book pages, japanese paper and lots of fun!

vintage stamps, old flip number cards from a broken alarm clock, acrylic paint, pen.
Isn't it a super idea? I love the thought of everyone getting creative for the school. Whether they're artists or's all just a bit of fun really :)

And *ahem*  the invitation is extended for anyone else who wants to get involved....hint hint?? Although all works need to be returned by the 28th of October.

If you are interested than just let me know. I can send a wee little canvas to you.

So yes, I didn't end up going to Mudgee today. Even as the drab weather turned out quite pleasant. I ignored the laundry, dishes and vacuuming. Plonked down, watched Sunset Boulevard and painted.

Bloody awesome day.

P.S Sorry for the dodge pics. The camera and I are not friends.

Lazy mornings

I'm loving this Saturday morning. Echoes of the holidays, when I was able to lie in bed and not worry about having to be somewhere at a certain time. The girls stayed in the spare bedroom last night. They were so excited to be sharing a "big bed" AND watch a movie. Kind of like a little sleep over party just for them. As a result they've woken up in chipper moods and are playing beautifully with their Sylvanian families, making playgrounds for them out of lego and toilet roll holders. I was thinking of heading into Mudgee for the Farmers Markets to pick up some Gingle mil wine. However it's looking a bit drab outside today. Perfect weather for drinking lots of tea and painting.

Enjoy the weekend folks.

Happiness in little bits of lovely.

Sprigs of Lilacs by my bedside.  A little bit of lovely that puts a smile on my dial :)
