A Wintry Wednesday

I know, I know - I am always carrying on about how cold it is but I seem to be having trouble adjusting to the climate here in South Gippsland. In reality it is probably only 3 degrees (celsius) cooler than Sydney but my city-girl bones seem to be frozen through, I can't even seem to get the fire hot. But as I stand looking out the back window across the hills and farmland I am inspired by the beautiful wintry colours.

The second I saw this beautiful piece by Studio 722 it reminded me of the lovely little nest out in the oak tree.

These lovely little embellishments by One Craftee Mumma are just like the frost crystals that are around early morning.

The Oak tree is bare just like the ones on these elegant napkins from Mary Elizabeth Arts

And although I am cold, I am thankful I am not as cold as this Moon Through Fog print!

Hope you have a beautiful day!

Well I have had a rather unproductive weekend in the craft department, it has been drizzly and grey and I am starting to think I am getting SAD (seasonal affective disorder) so I am looking forward to a bright and colourful spring which seems to be eons away. But these bright items have bought some colour to my day:

Red Dome Resin Ring by Fingers & Toes Unique

Orange & Denim Hair Piece by d3bz

Rainbow Bracelet by Dina Fragola

Have a beautiful day!

Song Birds

At the moment I am bird crazy. I cannot get enough of little birds - I did my bedroom out with a song bird theme with a duvet cover and wall decal in black and white, and I am very happy with the result. Anyway I am loving birds like these:

Faux Bois Song Bird Wall Art by Wickedly Good Wares

White Hemp Purse By Sir Tom

The Sweetest Lovebirds Necklace by Sparkle Peach

All of these birds have inspired my new range of all occasion greeting cards which I have just listed today:

Songbird All Occasions Greeting Card by Me!
Have a beautiful day!
