Today I bought this delightful Carol Forster tea pot ... ahhh, how lovely tea is from a tea pot!

Some favourite things ...

When I first visited Eumundi Markets, in June of this year I picked up these lovely little stone & copper hanging artworks. Created by Rhys Coker using natural limestone and individually hand beaten copper, they are handmade in Australia.

Lavender & Lace

... once looked a little different ... a confused artwork... or a confused artist perhaps.

Gary Myers Gallery - Maleny Arts Retreat

I was downstairs beneath the Gallery when I heard some very quiet tiny little tapping noises, so I dried and put down my pen wandered up to see who or what had wandered into the Gallery, thinking it was Hugo the dog who is not allowed in. Two beautiful bush pigeons immediately took flight as I appeared.
It was a very long and difficult task getting the sweet (naughty pooping) little birdies out of the gallery and very sadly one flew so hard into the wall that it dropped to the floor with a grand thud, either stunned or dead. The other managed to exhaust itself (and me) after an hour or so of fluffing about I managed to throw a soft towel over it and took them both out to the bush to recover.
Pigeons loose in an art gallery is not really a good look on the artwork but luckily not a drop ... or a poop!
I has a similar incident with a swallow in the cottage only two weeks ago.

Another door opens ...

Maleny Arts Retreat -More than a shed & a car

A new door has opened.
I haven't close any old ones
... perhaps though, a page has turned in my book of life.

Following are a few images of the shed including uncompleted work on today's drawing board.

"Glass Above the Clouds"

I have recently had the opportunity to spend many wondrous moments residing with two very special people who opened their home and hearts to me at a much needed time in my life. They know who they are and I ask the question how can one repay such kindness and generosity? I would like to share this spectacular view, one of many I awoke to every morning for the past few months of healing.

"Aces" inspired by the Cheryl Wheeler song of the same name
