Just Browsing!

To some fine bloggers out there, you know who you are....

I am inspired by many things, many places, and many people. Just browsing through some of your blogs , they are a real eye-opener, the talent that you all have...whether it is a craft you make, the gardens you adore, or the homes you all make just that, your home! If I could only name a few things I 'GET' from your blogs, it is the passion and creative thoughts, the gorgeous photos, and the inspiration you give me.I truly enjoy 'Checking out' everyones' ideas, and it's interesting to find they are all quite different and from all perspectives.

I can see the addiction some people have with blogging, time just ticks away!

I decided to share with you, a couple of special shops I love to visit, sometimes tooo much!These two are probably the closest to being my home! 'Frou Frou' is quite new to

Springwood, having moved from the city, but it has made such an impact to the locals, and of cause, to me.I instantly felt at home, and have become quite friendly with the owner, Parisa.

This "Retro Gear" shop,in Glenbrook, has great clothes, linens, bedspreads, and all that screams 'Retro'!

There are so many great shops here on the mountains, and I will add some more next time.


So...are you all free on the 30th September?? Junkitjunction is having a sale, at Magpie Markets, at Lawson. I have noticed I need to clear out some things, actually, Im having a bit of a panic attack! The weather is warming up, and my verandah needs to be free, so here goes!! If the weather is on my side, please join me ,and come for a wonderful drive up the mountains, this market is a fantasic one for trash and treasure...I just hope I dont buy anymore while Im there!My mum will be helping, and I will be the stall with the most,Im sure! Just look for the sign, and pray for sunshine.

My latest additions to ebay...this one sold already!

Im busy painting at the moment,it would be easier if it wasnt drizzling, but I will have more to go on soon, so take a peek!I just love this lamp, I already have one similar in blue!


  1. Sue my sweet, thank you for the dedication.
    Okey, how did I not know about "Frou Frou". Because I never go into Springwood, just drive past. I think I feel the need to go there now though. BTW, the lamp is gorgeous. Love the shape of the shade, a bit different.
    Hugs, Coll :-}

  2. Frou Frou looks gorgeous, I would be there all the time too!
