My iPhone4 32GB arrived today at 7:40am - yes, early!
And I was at the Telstra dealer shop bang on 9:00am... haha! Yes, very keen!
So to celebrate my new toy, I did a bit of hunting on Etsy for some different cases and covers - I think it will take me a while to decide which one to pick!
In love with the shop Tovicorrie - in particular the lace print ones pictured above, hmm which colour! I want one of each - so pretty and dainty! Oh and the rest of that shop... so many beautiful choices - going to be hard!
Stella Winter and her mama Natalie.
Faces like those pictured above, warm my heart so much!
And from that warming, comes a little buzz... the buzz of inspiration.
Since Stella arrived, life has been a whirlwind - so many things have happened, progressed and regressed, steps forward and backward, but one look at her little face and I am instantly reminded of the beauty in new life.
Stella has inspired the Spring range - nicknamed "Dainty Little Fledgling" - featuring baby wrens, strong deer walking with little wren friends, sweet doves of peace, lace, wrought iron, doilies and Spring branches - everything that Stella makes me think of!

With the new season comes new inspiration...
Dainty Wren Ring (pictured above) is just one of the new pieces for That Vintage - I don't think I will take this ring off, ever... looking at it and the imagery I created, brings a smile to my face - a perfect pick-me-up!
Just a sweet little tasty teaser for you all...
The new That Vintage range will be available at the end of this month!I am so excited...
I hope you are too!
My gorgeous friend Emily with smiling Stella.
I am finally on holidays!
It is such a relief... I have had the most drawn out past four days at my bread & butter job, things were starting to really get to me! But never fear, for holiday time is here!
I had my gorgeous girls Emily, Natalie & Stella around last night and I cooked them dinner - Sweet potato, chickpea and coriander patties with a huge garden salad. It was delicious! Stella kept the entire family entertained; my own mother bear certainly hasn't lost her touch with babies - she cuddled, fed, entertained and soothed Stella whilst we got to enjoy our dinner.
I also gave the girls an exclusive sneak peek at the new That Vintage designs that are fresh off the laser as of yesterday... the response was exactly what I had hoped for! And it mirrors how I feel about the new designs, so thrilled with how they have turned out! But I must keep you all in suspense until I return from my holiday... Oh aren't I mean!
Pencils and paper - hello my friends...
I have finally been inspired by beautiful, friendly faces to draw some more illustrations/portraits.
Thought I would share with you just one... this is of Dani - she works at one of the stores that I stock to in Launceston: Cadootje.
Dani is beautiful in looks and nature; she has big bug eyes that are bright blue and a gorgeous fashion sense! It was a pleasure to draw her - and only took 15 minutes! Got to love the creative-buzz!
(Sorry for the dirty watermark... bit wary of people pinching other peoples artwork these days - sad world!)
On Wednesday I am leaving Tasmania.
Not forever, don't panic...
But for a week - to Adelaide!
This will be my first time ever to Adelaide, I can't wait to explore - my older sister moved her family down from Townsville a few months ago, she loves it - and said that I will love it too!
I am definitely looking forward to the break... I am starting to go a little bit nutty!
I unwrapped a new batch of freshly laser cut pieces to find that this batch of wood has a surprisingly dark undertone ...isn't it so striking?
Just a reminder - make sure you enter my blog giveaway (see previous post) as you have a chance to score $121.00 worth of That Vintage goodies - ends on this coming Wednesday 8th... so go on! Enter!
