Photos from the show: Where are you from? at Platform72













It was a wonderful night and I was overwhelmed with the support of friends, family and complete strangers who came.
Adoption agencies took an interest and there were representatives from AdoptChange, the Benevolent Society and others.  Helen McCabe, who is on the board of directors at AdoptChange opened the show and was so generous with her time.

Platform72 were just wonderful as always

The Australian Garden Show - in pictures






Well unfortunately, Sydney did not play nice for the 4 days of the Australian garden show.  The persistent rain meant a very wet weekend and much of the show was very muddy underfoot.  However, the gardeners were not deterred and when the sun finally came out on Sunday afternoon, the show gardens were beautiful to behold.  Here are some random shots of the weekend.

Graham Ross came by for a special introduction of Sarah and her work at Hillandale Gardens & Nursery to his guest audience.

New products for the Gabby Malpas website











While we're in Winter in the southern hemisphere, I've been busy getting new products ready for the spring and summer sale season downunder.

Here is a selection of teatowels and cushion covers.

They feature paintings printed as panels and made into products.  I produce limited print runs - there were between 35 and 40-odd cushion covers (3 types of two different panels) and between 40 - 50 teatowels (6 x designs).

That keeps the product niche and a little bit exclusive - guaranteed NOT to find these at Target or IKEA!
You can purchase these on my website and they will be in selected galleries soon.
