J. Crew is here!

Finally J Crew delivers to Australia, bring with them alongside their own simple, clean lines (man they pick their models well)  - Lemlem. "International Goodwill Ambassador (and supermodel) Liya Kebede's line of handmade garments. Lemlem, meaning "to bloom" in Amharic, was started as a way of providing Ethiopian weavers with a means to escape poverty"

Sugar and spice and all things nice

 Do you like my little ladies? I found this lovely vintage look fabric at  Fabric Traders and have started a series of little girl pendants and brooches. I am playing with silver backing for stamping purposes and mirrored acrylic front. I have a bit of a way to go in terms of rivets and finishing.

She's sweet isn't she xx

So "simple"

So my dad looked at my blog and said it should be called ''really expensive things to love" instead of "simple". I explained it wasn't called "simple things to go out and buy" but point taken. So whilst battling my ongoing issue of living semi-rural and poor connectivity, I took the opportunity to cast my eye around some of the simple things in my immediate surrounds.
First stop my desk which is home to a few "simple things" that belonged to my mum and nan -"things" I love very much. It would be so easy to pass over such things, such is the importance of taken the time to stop and reflect.
