See you round like a rissole

The year is gathering to a close, people are getting ready to stay in with a bottle of vino and the fireworks on TV or go out and get a drunk kiss at midnight. Thus far I am undecided on what we are doing. Although there will be some friends, some bubbles and talk of resolution involved at some stage. My new years resolution is to stick to never having one. It's hard to disappoint yourself that way.

On a cheery new yeary note ... A heart will be posted out to the nether regions of Australia, somewhere in the Gulf someone has won a heart. Check out her blog here.

Another heart is up for grabs this giveaway ... create a link to this post, leave a comment or tweet about this post with #REread.

Next year promises to be a big one, with this Sunday starting it off with the Young Designers Market at Southbank. I will be there with heaps of other clever creative types.

Jesus had a birthday and I got all the presents

I walked away from Christmas day a little bit pissy and with a nice stash of presents. The most lovely and thoughtful was a little vintage doll dressed in traditional Saami get-up. I got old books for my REread stuff, some pearls, and a Leunig book. Sybil got a vintage copy of Catcher in the rye. She can't read yet so I may have to read it out loud to her. And Popular Penguins were a big hit ...

I also bought myself a wonderful new toy, a Lumix FZ35. Still figuring out how it all works etc. yet from the few photos I have taken yesterday it looks to be a nice little camera.

I am thinking of a new blog, I have had this idea floating around for a while. The concept was 'conceptualised' one Friday night after a few $2 champagnes at the Fox (classy lady). I was waiting for the bus at the cultural center and just marvelling at the weird outfit ensembles that were also riding public transport.

In the new year I will get the blog up an running ... You wear me out, Brisbane. Hopefully the first post will have a few good images courtesy of the new snapper.

Also comment here for a chance to win a heart! or leave a comment on the original giveaway post below. See you in the new year.

Twas the night before ...

About to gear up for some bowls club action and have a birthday (not mine) drink on the eve of the big day. We have lots of presents wrapped and placed in a room, sans tree. Even Sybil got a little parcel from Santa.

This is not Sybil but some poor other hound dressed in festive cheer.

Mogs design is the luck win win winner of the last giveaway. This week I have a heart to give away for a lucky punter ... just leave me a comment on this post and you're in the running.

win a heart ...

And for those of you in Brisbane I will be at the Young Designers Market on Sunday January 3. Drop in say hi and take a look around.

See you all in the new year, so stupidly dubbed the 'one-der years'.

I'm getting tired and I'm sweaty,

... i still want too touch you if you let me.
Because we hugged a few times
it was special and we'll be working all night cause it's pumping.
And you were special

Too hot here in this river city. It's threatening to rain, but the clouds just get my hopes up and then it doesn't. Summer and Christmas means a week off work, and I hope to get some reading done. I want to finish Madame Bovary, and then get through Ask The Dust and maybe start the Larson trilogy by the dead dude. I saw people read it on the bus etc. and thought is was going to be one of those Bryce Courtenay, Dan Brown airport crap, pulp books ... but a few of the Tuesday Night Book Clubers thought it was worth a shot. So ...

from here ...

Amy Cartwright has won herself a little brooch this week ... this week another one is in the running ... just leave me a comment and you could win one.

And ... the coolest thing I have read about this week must be The Uniform Project. One dress, 365 days. Very cool, very clever and I love her fashion ideas with one black pinafore dress. She is also raising money for kids in India to go to school, so it's a great little site to have a look-see and donate some dosh. This month Ebay is matching dollar for dollar all money donated.

And lastly I have added some more stuff on Etsy, check it out, leave a comment and you can win a brooch.

Take care ...

Market Wrap and Market Booty

The BrisStyle Indie market was a hit on the weekend, with lots of punters showing up for some handmade loot. I had a little shop and ended up with a new handbag from BeckyBean, a coin purse from Little Mary Moo and a cool Ibis card from flight industries. The winner of the giveaway (posted a while back) is (oops I posted this before I put the link in!) TrishAlan Design congratulations I will post some gift tags your way.

This is a short post as I am tired from the move and all the marketing! We also became the owners of 3 new chickens on Saturday. Hussein, and her two dominions (Dominion One and Dominion Two).

This week just leave me a comment and a random brooch can be yours ... so get busy!

See you later ...
