My excuses;
-Signing of Renovation Contract with Builder
-B has had exams
-Dad's showroom has opened with two massive parties (I will post pictures...)
-WE ARE LEAVING FOR JAPAN TODAY (and I will be visiting the tori tunnels in Kyoto)

So, I will be out of action for a while longer... that is until I come back and tell you all about it!

Koskela - Yuta Badayala

We had a visit from Sydney based Koskela last week. Amongst other recent developments they showed the samples of the Yuta Badayala project. They're so beautiful! I can't wait to have the right project to use one (or one hundred?) Watch the clip below for more about this fantastic environmentally and socially sustainable project...

Awesome Envelopes...

Google map envelopes (conceptual only at this stage unfortunately) prints the address of the sender and the recipient and plots the distance between the two...

Not available yet but these are available...
Pinpoint your address (or any other... like the Eiffel Tower perhaps?) on a DIY printable envelope interior...

Just two more reasons why I still love "snail mail."

Or craving Paris...

Adelaide Festival...

A while ago I spoke about the Adelaide Festival.
I've finally got around to uploading some of my photos!
This installation is called "The Northern Lights"
The stately buildings along North Terrace are lit each with a series of digital images to amazing effect!
{see here and here for examples of what they look like during the day}
And, at the Festival Bar...
A bike fence...
~which I thought was both quirky and effective~
{all images by me}

Another Market...

I missed the last Bowerbird Bazaar :o( because we were in Perth but I got to go to Upmarket instead :O)
Another great market to watch out for if you're in WA!
And for those in SA the Gilles Street Markets are back on this weekend!

A few weekends ago we went to Perth for the weekend...
and boy, is that a top shop!!
I had a lot of fun fossicking around...
and I even crossed a few items off of my "presents to buy list"
{images by me}
When in Perth I highly recommend a visit - William Street, Northbridge.
and have a look at the blog and website... even if it is just for this quote...

"I am a Thing-Finder, and when you're a Thing-Finder you don't have a minute to spare.
. . . The whole world is full of things, and somebody has to look for them."
Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
