I love summer. And now, summer is as far away as it ever will be because today is the first day of autumn. But WHAT a day! Gorgeous here, if not a little cool. Perfect for resining before we head up the coast.
On the agenda is many more large pendants, similar to my Joie de Vivre above. Sally from Georgie Love has also asked me to send some more stockarooney to her, so I'll get some wonderful pieces together for her and Georgie too.
My current favourite, FAVOURITE thing is my Barcelona Cocktail Ring. It's colours remind me of really hot afternoons in Barcelona, and hanging out in the shadowy Old Town to escape the sun.
Anyway, I hope the weekend is good for all, and that you receive whatever weather you wish for.

My little sister is getting married soon and her and her lovely fiancee have just found their first house! How exciting for them!! So what better to do for the next few minutes than to check out some awesome handmade homey stuff I think she would LOVE.
Fellow Aussie and fellow Georgie Love stablemate, oddsnblobs makes these stunning fabric coasters, which I do believe my sis (or myself) will lose their head over. Gorgeous!!
Or perhaps this wonderful, whimsical, wheelthrown bowl from kristenkswanson. Mind-blowingly pretty!!
Or this spectacular cushion from British designer, francesrose. Lusting after this one for Sparky and me, actually...

Sparky and I are heading up the central coast this weekend, to visit Sparky's cousin, Leap Year Boy. LYB lives in beautiful, beautiful Matcham Valley and we're hoping to kick about in the sun for a couple of days. Unforch, this wonderful La Nina weather pattern is dictating otherwise. Perhaps we'll sit around a very large fire and drink stout instead. Actually... YAY for La Nina!! YAY for stout!! I think I may cook some brownies to take.
The boo is for the humidity, which has made pouring my temperamental little resin so much more difficult and fraught with the danger of so much waste. So the mammoth pour is off until the humidity reaches somewhere under 156%.
The final yay is for the dams. Up, up and up may they go. Until we have to open them and let water out... What a crazy thought...

Today was a busy, busy day. I cut about 1,753,390 pieces of acrylic and spent a couple of hours cutting paper and fabric to size. I made dinner, I made lunch, I made potato salad and I washed lots of clothes. I blogged and I worked on the details of two wholesale orders. Then I had to go to work.
Tomorrow brings a mammoth resin pouring session once I get home.
I'm feeling rather good about tomorrow. I know what I'm wearing to work, I know what I'm having for lunch and I know what I'm cooking for dinner. (Snapper fillets with olive oil, tomato and oregano dressing, kipfler potatoes and salad - yum!) I feel on top of things!!

A pair of new knickers may make you happy. Or a delicious cup of coffee. Perhaps some special cuddles. Or a particularly lovely movie.
Today, Alyoisius makes me happy. I just love the colourful quirkiness of the prints and while printed art is not my forte I know what makes me happy.
