NOW this is more like it. This feels lighter: more colour, more throwing back the doona, leaping out of bed and embracing a sunny day. This is more 'spring'.
 
THINGS TO MAKE AND DO: A sweet, freeform softie that would be a lovely thing to make for Pip's annual Softies for Mirabel. I have every intention of joining in this year.
 
THINGS TO COOK AND EAT: Warmer weather means outdoor tables piled with things to eat while moving about chatting or taking a turn about the garden. My mum is considered queen of the 'cheesy potato', but these are a step above and beyond: cheesy 'spinach' smashed potatoes.
 
THINGS TO DROP DOUGH ON: I love handcrafted jewellery. If I am travelling, I will look for a piece of jewellery from a local maker to bring home with me - costs being not too prohibitive. It's a small memento that will be used. I am not travelling to Portland anytime soon, so I will just have to covet the Oleria earrings from afar.
 
THINGS TO HANG ON THE WALL: I saw frames just like these in one of my favourite Central Coast haunts, Piccolo Pear. They were set with beautiful antique laces and embroidered collars, but this is pretty neat too. Does anyone know a stockist for frames like these?
 
#flashback: Pinning still hadn't resumed this time last year, but I was crafting up a storm for UNICEF.

  2. I agree, jewellery as souvenir is my favourite - they remind you constantly of your travels, it's a far better conversation starter, and much better something you can wear than something without use which gets tucked away. A housemate worked for one of the big accessories companies here and would always bring home samples she thought would suit me, and while I was grateful they just weren't the same as those pieces with a memory and a story attached.
