We have had our fair share of rainy days lately..great for the vege patch but not so great for Mum's of young children. Anyway, this morning was lovely & sunny, just perfect for a wander around my backyard for a little self garden admiration. I couldn't help myself, I had to snip off a couple of my dahlias to bring inside. They really bring the house alive & I love how they look in this little Japanese vase that was an op shop find last year. The colours in this photo give me a bit of a Frida Kahlo, Mexican vibe. What do you think??
Glad I brightened up the house as down comes the rain again!!
I love these tiles, they are all handmade & painted in Tunisia (North Africa). The colours are so exotic & dreamy, & these ones in particular have an amazing crackled glass glazing that give them a lovely lustrous finish. A great friend of mine Jane Tryon, imports them & many other beautiful items into Australia through her business Focal Point Designs. Jane's fiance is from Tunisia & he has just been back there buying up stock to fill their gorgeous gallery/ shop Bouddi Gallery at Hardy's Bay. The shop is very near to my house so I'm often grabbing a coffee & dropping by for a chat & a look at any new stock she may have. It's great to have some pretty places to visit in our sleepy little seaside suburb.
I have been a little distracted recently with family life & community responsibilities kicking in...I really must get cracking on my little label...more sean-the-prawn soon, I promise!!
