Needle Felted Dolls

Having a week of terrible brain fade.

Could anybody please remind me who the gorgeous Australian blogger is who makes those divine needle felted nature dolls. 

I recall an apple maiden, a spring faery... if you know please leave me a comment with her name. 

Thanks ever so much.

lots of fuzz

3rd March, 2009

I've cut Milo's hair pretty short since he was a wee bub... an old wives tale of 'thickening' up his locks. Not sure if it's true or not but he's pretty cute with a short fuzzy do.
Then I thought we'd try something different. I thought that with enough time, enough length, maybe he'd have a little curl. Like his mama.....

Umm.... nope! 
After almost a year there's lots of fuzz, lots of length, 
more comparisons between father & son, but no curl.

So, a little 'style'. 
Not as short as usual, but a happy medium between the two.

Super cute. 
Don't you think?

love love love, all you need is love

14th February, 2009

9 years & 11 months ago I fell in love. 
I fell with caution, with hesitation, with a little self loathing even & with absolutely no ability to slow it down or to smother the effect. 

I tried, so hard, to talk myself out of it. To 'rationalise'. 
We both did.
We talked about how the timing was poor, how the circumstances were difficult. How we were both enjoying other things in life, how a 'relationship' would get in the way.

How naive we were, to think we could influence the power of love.

And so almost 10 years later, I have such respect for that love that knew better than our youthful illusions. And I am eternally grateful for the music that brought us together in the beginning. 

And also that music still has such a powerful place in our home, in our lives & in our hearts.

Queenscliff Music Festival in 2002, we have been fans ever since)

Never have I seen such stage presence commanded with such calmness)
