PS. We've all been under the weather this week, so we've been taking it very easy, sipping plenty of turmeric tea and homemade broth and curling up under colourful crochet and vintage floral with lovely stories to read.  I'm so grateful that we are all feeling much better today and spent the afternoon enjoying a good dash of almost Spring sunshine.

Consciously Crafted..

It's not very often that a day goes by when I'm not making something, or dreaming up an idea to make something.  Sometimes they are things for our home, sometimes they are things I'd love to share. Ever since we moved back to Mildura, I've been thinking about something I could create that wouldn't require too much space, that I could do while Tallow was playing or napping. Something that I could do consciously, fill with loving energy and something I could share. After participating in Kate's Motif a Day in May, I was reacquainted with my love for crochet and knew I wanted to create something special to decorate the home with. So after a little playing and a few attempts, I created my first crochet wall mandala, inspired by sacred geometry, ancient tradition and domestic arts.  

After a little more experimenting, I've created my first collection, inspired and named after beautiful mother nature. There will be more sizes and colours available in the coming weeks and I will also be taking limited commission orders starting in Spring. You can find these mandalas in the online store I run with the gorgeous ladies in my life, my mum and sister, Wilde Asher.

Thanks so much for stopping by on this lovely Friday.
Have a beautiful weekend!
Much Love

As We Walk..

As we walk, there is a softness in the air. 
 While the passers by make their way home, busying themselves with daily routine, we wander by the river each afternoon, reconnecting with the earth and with each other.

Each day tells a different story, a new painting in the afternoon sky.  Each day new buds begin to blossom, gardens come to life and springtime daffodils lift their heads to the last moments of sun.

The gums blaze burnt orange, the river runs with boundless beauty.
And I embrace it all, in every step. I breath in deeply, full of gratitude, for precious moments like these.

Much Love
