I think it's time to close this blog. Well, I'll leave it up but no longer post here. Social media has changed so much and I think using my facebook page for business works really well. So yep, you can find me there.

But I can't quite bear to delete this blog. It has a lot of history and memories for me so I'll leave it up. It's also still a way people find me - so just head over to facebook to see what I'm up to from now on.

My handbags and dresses still sell online at my website - and also at Studio 52 in Blackheath. I've taken the plunge by creating a range of cards (and cushions coming soon) for my new business Mount Vic and Me.

So... I'm around... just on another web page. x

Life... Mount Vic and Me, renovating and postcards by Theo

Very neglectful of me - better stop in and say hi!  Life has been busy with changes to our house - the renovation to the bathroom is complete as well as floating floors and a new door, hearth and fireplace.

Theo has created her first postcard - a short run of 50. We decided to do it after the set up of my new business Mount Vic and Me (more of that later). She had two pieces of artwork: a beautiful detailed sunflower and a starry night picture with two people and a horse and wanted to create a postcard. I put the two illustrations together and included her signature (very Miro-like) and she art directed what colour she would like. I think it's just gorgeous! Wondering if I can sell them and give her a small cut... bit cheeky?

The new bathroom is DIVINE! Such a change from what we had and such a pleasure to have a bath in now! We had the old pedestal sink and bath re-enamelled and I designed the tiles. We used vintage hearth tiles as an inset on the bathtub too. It was a bit of a challenge for hubby - he had such a combination to do and cut but I think the results are amazing. What do you think?

My art cards and postcards are here! Mount Vic and Me is something I have thought about for a long time and finally got stuck into it. I have a range of 14 cards to date - and not just Blue Mountains - but I think quite special. Please follow the blog and check it out - even follow the facebook page as I grow this lovely little business... markets to follow soon.

And if you have any stockist ideas in the Mountains, let me know. Ta. x

Nelly RIP

Ball mad in 2009

Tonight we said good bye to my darling dog Nelly. She's been with me from 2000 - 2013 and has lived with me in Sydney, Darwin, Alice Springs, Brisbane, Helensburgh and the Blue Mountains. She hasn't been right for a couple of days and I am devastated tonight to think she's gone.

 Nelly with both my daughters - 2009 and 2011

Nelly had some lumps on her chest which have turned out to be tumours. We decided not to continue checking any further and let her go. She was a ball mad dog and it doesn't make sense to push a dog who's quality of life is suffering.

So... understandably... I can't stop crying. She's been with me through so much. Two relationship breakups, two children, lived all over Australia with me and has travelled more than most Australians. The other States she hadn't been to was WA and Tasmania.

RIP Nelly old girl.
