Mysty (Ozspots Jerilderie)

6th June 2007 – 15th April 2020 My beautiful baby – I miss you so much still.I am pretty sure that Precious misses you too. She has moments when she just starts crying out and racing through the house “looking for something” and then she sees me, comes up to me and looks at me […]

2017 – a reflection

2017 – it has been am AMAZING year for me personally on so many levels. After being a recluse for so many years, and making excuses for not going out and meeting people, 2017 has been awesome for getting me out of my shell. I have enjoyed being part of the Kingscote Farmers’ Market, sharing […]

I’m glad I made it to the market……

So… it was market day again today and yesterday was supposed to have been a day of making, prepping and packing…… but I just couldn’t quite muster up the energy and inspiration until late in the afternoon. Yesterday was my first ‘Day Off’ since we have come back from our holiday and there are still […]

It’s May already….. time does go quick when you are loving life!

So, it’s almost half way through 2017 and so much has happened. If you recall, late last year I was in pain, unable to spend much time on the torch and to tell you the truth, I seriously thought I might have to give up lamp working. When we were away on holiday in October/November […]

Kangaroo Island Inspiration – Authentic Kangaroo Island

If you have been to Kangaroo Island, you will know how pristine the waters are here and how the sandy beaches are just glorious….most of them have fine white/beige sand and we are so very lucky we can still walk barefoot along the sandy beaches here. These beads are a long time favourite of mine […]

Back at the Markets!!!

Yesterday was such a gorgeous day in Kingscote, I am so glad I decided to get a stall at the Kingscote Farmer’s Market. It wasn’t an overly busy day in comparison to the other market days but for me, it was good as it gave me a chance to chat with folks and actually have […]
