Lovely surprise ....

Found these lovelies in my letterbox on Tuesday morning, expecting to find some bills to pay but surprised to find a container full of beautiful butterflies from a great neighbor who works at the butterfly enclosure at the Melbourne Zoo. He collects them for me before the ants get to them for me to work with! Lucky I am!

New work...

Working on some more collection tins today, decided I'd use some of the beautiful vintage atlas paper and give my Mums old stamp collection a new life...

More photos from market day no. 1

First Market ...

Well had my first market for The Naturalist on Sunday,...for Greville Village Market. Lovely day, weather was great, wind was a factor I didn't factor in, a few broken bottles later and all went well! Lovely positive feedback from market goers... So lovely to see the different reactions from people; curious, wonder, delight and even fright!! This photo below is of my most happiest of customers, loved his choice tiny succulent planted in a tiny vintage mustard pot...made my day!
