Do you want culture with that?

Holidays and rainy weather make for good art gallery participation. I took off to pick-up a friend and off to GoMA we went for the 21st Century Art exhibition. Pretty good! Although I'll need to go back as we got 'culture fatigue' after an hour and a half and didn't get to see everything. If you go see the Finch Room (that's not the actual name of the art work, but you get the gist). The sound in the room would make you go bonkers after about 10 minutes, however the wee birdies are very cute.

Simple, but nice ...

A giant plastic bag ensemble
Balls, lots of them
Me being a magpie ... lots of shiny

Home again, home again

I've just got back from a week in Mossman and Julatten in Tropical North Queensland. The first few days were sunny and steamy, at night we were all just zombie dead-heads with the 34 degree heat (at 8pm!) and the humidity. Can't be arsed writing a bunch of words at the moment (still in holiday mode) so here are some photos from the trip.

Hotel room in Cairns before I headed up to see the folks

One of the noisy birds that eat bananas on my Grandpa's veranda
Veikko and I by the fire? He likes to burn shit
The new dog 'Pulla', Finnish name for a sweet pastry
We tried to go to the Mareeba Wetlands ... too wet!
Made Karelian pies for Christmas Eve dinner

Walking ...

I've been sick, the doctor tells me it's walking pneumonia. Luckily it's not running pneumonia as I don't run for anything except trains I'm about to miss.

No running for this train ... but we were on it for days and days.
It took us across Siberia

I did my last market for the year last weekend for Bris-Style, the weather was as miserable as my gunky lungs. It rained so hard the girls outside had to pack-up and vamoose. We (inside girls) all packed up early too, as without the colourful fanfare outside not many passers-by were coming in and shopping. Read all about the wet, wet market here.

One very cute Bris-Style babe in her wet weather gear.

If you missed the December 4 market don't despair, as Bris-Style has one more market for the year! This Friday at King George Square. Below is a quick pick of some great stuff you'll find there.

Hey Jesus, it's your birthday soon right?
Wicked Child Designs ... you make me laugh!

Ohhh squeee, it's a wee drummer bunny

Mademoiselle, Jacques Cousteau, ahhhh baguette!
