our creative space . . . 'flowers, fun & friends'

Greetings all,
Glorious Floriade has flowered again - Canberra's uber famous Spring flower festival.  I popped in this afternoon to soak up some floral delights, do some shopping, visit my gal pal Tania at the Handmade Marquee at Floriade & give her a little gift. 
 The flowers deserve their own post tomorrow.
Look at the super cute bracelet i scored at Tick Tock Type - that clever Tamsin is at it again, making up the coolest steam punk jewellery around.  Red vintage scrabble tiles, gimme gimme.  Yep, i was forced to add to my collection of her watch part & type writer letter key accessories.  Forced i tell you!!
 Voila, la Tania McCartney with her fabulous collection of Riley books.
 Tuesday's weather was insane to say the least - thunder storms, sunshine, gale force winds, sunny, then freezing rain - so i thought i'd make her a little sample up of my international bunting range.  Tania loves to travel, thus her Riley series of books based in China, Hong Kong, Sydney & Melbourne, plus that fabulous Tai Tai book she wrote while living in Beijing.  The bunting has fabrics including Russian dolls, landmarks from Paris & London, plus some cute international flags.  She liked!!
 I don't normally 'do' a raw edge, but i'm thinking up speedier production methods with reduced price tags for the next Handmade Market.  I'm comfortable with this, viva la pinking shears & amazing quality linens to play with.  They are lined with calico & interfacing. 
The dizziness of this post sums up what is going on in my mind, i'm spinning.  For more creativity, go to our creative spaces, love Posie
PS thanks for yesterday's comments, i know i know, i failed at Wordless Wednesday, i'm a talker!!
