So, here we are, November already. As it gets cooler and the days get shorter in the Northern hemisphere, here in Australia it is heating up, daylight savings has well and truly arrived and my favourite time of year is here again.

Our backyard is coming along nicely and the crab Apple tree I planted as a tiny plant is turning out to be the plant that heralds in the arrival of Spring here in Tassie. It is so full of blossoms now that the branches are weighted down with them. This was taken a few days ago…so many more have opened up since then.

I’m currently organising the studio for a new/old sideboard I have coming tomorrow to go on the left of the fireplace here. While I was re-organising space, I found this old frame my Mum gave me on my last visit to Sydney and turned it into a colourful whiteboard so I can write down the days items that have to be made for Marley & Lockyer. The paper is by Bespoke Letterpress, who make the most amazing papers.
Lot’s is happening right now and I am busily preparing for Christmas markets and planning our own Christmas here at home. Lot’s and lot’s of orders are going out and I have been spending the last few days sitting in the studio, listening to old crooners sing Christmas carols….to get me in the spirit you see ;0)
Either way, I am happy
