Saturday's not Raining Dear but Here are Some Reindeer

This is an old photo of my beautiful mother taken in Finland in the 70s.  She was studying textile design and floating about being cool and getting freckles in the Arctic sun.  I love this photo and this is the photo that inspired the tattoos I have (much to her distaste) on my arms ... For more heart stuff win a cool brooch HERE  



I will be flexing my democratic muscles today and casting my vote in the Queensland state election.  I hate that I am not really voting 'for' one party but rather just voting 'against' the other.  But you have to pick someone, and I am going to vote, the suffragettes didn't throw themselves under horses and picket in the street so I could whinge about having to take 5 minutes out of my day to cast a vote.  Those who whinge about having to vote should shut the feck up and think about the women and the indigenous people of this country who at one time did not have the right to have their say.

Now for something a little less ranty and more antlery.  Some deer fodder from Etsy ...

There is a deer in my window ... from Mountain Brook


mix and match these cool rings from Soop

The Craft Pantry has got all your venison in the bag ...

Paper and paper and deer ... get it here at Farouche

enjoy the weekend does and bucks

Gorgeous photo of your Mum. Great thoughts on voting too. It is a privalege when you think about the fact that in some countries people still don't get to do it.
