Here are some of my new bags. They have PVC inners (made of recycled printed banners).
I want to push personality, attitude and some humour in these bags - look out for the kiwiana 'choiceland' bags and some 'onya' aussie versions.
I am using worn shells I have picked up in NewZealand and Australia.
coming soon to etsy...

We had a fabulous afternoon tea put together by one of Maria's wonderful friends: Casey who is a true food designer and choreographer (if that's possible). My cupcakes and sausage rolls were in attendance.
Anyway, we all had a lovely time, myself especially, and a fun afternoon.
Well done Maria!

I finished my final work for a while.
This picture contains an antique letter, the envelope (addressed to St Louis), and a photograph of the sender. When I read the letter, the sentiment and elegant writing was so lovely that I felt it apt to include all to complete the story.
The other two things I found out during my research were:
1) Magnolia Grandiflora are grown widely throughout the southern states of the US. They flower in April - later the further north you go.
2) The magnolia flower has been associated with beauty and perseverance, as well as dignity and nobility.
I'd like to think this picture is full of beauty - took a bit of perseverence to finish it - does that count?
Have a lovely week all.
Thank you for stopping by
