Happy Holidays!

When I was three months old my family traveled all around North America in a 32 foot trailer.  

My first Christmas was in California. 
Mom bought this little christmas tree on Christmas eve. 

This year she has come to visit me in Australia and brought my little tree with her. We still have the box and most of the original decorations. 
Its' looking a bit aged but then again 
that was 33 years ago! 

I think it's the most beautiful and special little tree!

Hope you all enjoy the holidays!

She said it best...Colette

The cat is the animal to whom the Creator gave the biggest eye, the softest fur, the most supremely delicate nostrils, a mobile ear, an unrivaled paw and a curved claw borrowed from the rose-tree.

Classic Movies

 I love watching classic movies, especially the ones from the 1930's 
as that is my favourite time in fashion.

Here is what I have been watching lately...



 Adam's Rib

Mata Hari

Jeff Depner

 Jeff Depner's colourful geometric paintings are on
 the "when I have my own house" wish list.

 I think they would brighten up any room!

Paula González from Phaulet was on to a good thing when she decided to design textiles with collaged images and reworked illustrations from old books and encyclopaedias. 

Love the Motmot bird one!
