Beautiful Tasmania

I'm very fortunate to be on holidays this week with my lovely sis and her friends. This is my first time in Tasmania and it's been lovely to soak up the natural beauty of the countryside (Note: Wineglass Bay, above, is a must-see) and catch up with some dear relos that I don't see near often enough.

I've also come across some beautiful handmade things whilst wandering about Hobart and just had to share them!

Our first discovery, a sweet little shop called Love & Clutter (31 Murray St Hobart).
Swoon. I'm in love. Possibly the cutest shop in the world!

*I spy...a print (above left) from one of my favourite artists Emily Martin a.k.a The Black Apple*

I could have stayed there all day. But it was saturday which means we had to go and check out the fabulous Salamanca Markets of course...

Funky lasercut jewellery and buttons by otekah

Lovely artwork & stationery from Ruby Victoria Letterpress & Printmaking

Buttons by otekah, the cutest little robot pin by HiiRagi and a brooch from Love & Clutter.

I'll be back home and back to work on Wednesday...can't wait to cuddle my little puppy dog! :)

This Is Not Art Festival

If you're finding yourself at a bit of a loss for something to do this long weekend then check out This Is Not Art Festival in Newcastle. The full program of events is available here.

Tomorrow (Sunday) is the Zine Fair which is always a fun, eclectic market full of arty and inspiring bits and pieces.

I'll be there! Come & say hi.
