I live in the middle of nowhere and there are few opportunites for retail therapy. The highlight of the day is going to the post office box… where I’m often disappointed to find NOTHING.
In order to keep my post office visiting self happy, I’ve been indulging in beautiful handmade goods from around the world.
The scarf above was made for me by Susan Johnson of Avalanche Looms. It looks fabulous wrapped loosely around my neck and I can’t wait to visit a cooler climate so I can wear it! It is a summer weight scarf, but more of a Tasmanian summer rather than a Northern Territory summer where it’s already averaging 39deg every day in Jabiru.
Sue from Heritage Needlework has been busy weaving these beautiful bookmarks. There are new ones on her site just now, so you should definitely check them out.
Also, I love my brooch made by Karen Ruane. She’s having a sale at the moment- see her blog for the details.
