Move, Fail, Break, Create
“Stuff you should do before you’re 35. Move. Live a dream. Fail miserably. Dream bigger. Get your heart broken. Create your reason.” — umair haque (@umairh) April 23, 2013 That space between break and create… interesting… I don’t see why it has to be till 35, but I 100% love the phrase ‘CREATE YOUR REASON’ I think that shall become one of my new mantras…...
by brainie, Paul & Kathie, & holyladd Stumbled upon a ‘rainbow eucalyptus’ today. They’re completely natural and as ever with the natural realm… startling & amazing! As the bark peels off at different rates & times, so different colours are seen and the rainbow effect is formed. “Nature’s brushstrokes” as somebody stated so...
And then one day… beneath the soft white flowering gums came a little hedgehog. To stand beneath & marvel at the pretty snowflake blooms… thea. xx
So the other day I had the literal surprise and intrinsically exciting pleasure of looking up and noticing that a tree near where I was, was a kind of flowering gum (the tree I’m painting in the baby’s room) and it was blooming too!!! (hehe okay, so that’s as exciting as my life is at the moment ;) This tree’s blooms were tiny little delicate bursts and I was captivated...
the room’s wall slowly blooms… not too certain about the bird… hmmmm… thea. xx
Great conversations are like beautiful squares in foreign cities one finds at...– Alain De Botton
Dear me!! I’m disappearing a lot lately. Sorry Visionaries, I’m chasing my tail and imagine this will continue if not get a little worse with baby on the way. Don’t worry I will pop by from time to time with delicious treasures and moments as they are discovered… perhaps you could do the same with the ‘popping’… here and there to say hello. Big...
Stumbled upon the remarkable work of photographer, Saul Leiter today… really beautiful captures… thought you’d like to see too… thea. xx
So much to do and time is literally slipping through my fingers… as I grow I seem to get a tad more stressed too - eeek. On another note a wondrously lovely friend came to visit Sydney this week so I got to take a mini break of a day and even visit the zoo! We spotted this beauty there - does anyone know what it’s called? thea. xx
glimpses of yesterday… maybe sparkles can give me super powers… thea. xx
fun mail & fresh camelias!!! A great start to the week!~ thea. xx
by felishavigo Drawing Hedgehogs today… thinking one should feature on the wall… How could anyone not love hedgehogs, right? thea. xx
And we’re off…!!!!! Spoonful’s Easter Competition is here ;) thea. xx
All about bunnies and wondrously ‘Springy’ easter prints today as I gathered inspiration and information for the annual Spoonful Easter Competition! Great fun really ;) This year we’re challenging everyone to create an Easter pattern! I hope to have the post up & word out by tomorrow, but until then, the bunnies will have to hop along in my mind… thea. xx
Inspired by the romans today… their frescos are insanely beautiful… sigh… walls walls walls… when confused look to the greats… thea. xx
I stumbled upon the flickr of a zoo today and fell completely in love with just about every picture. Am I just pregnant or are these the most beautiful gorgeous creatures ever?!! cuuuute! thea. xx
Gah! Completely unsure about the wall of the baby’s room now…. not sure what to do… ho hum!! Time is a-ticking! Any genius unisex thoughts? thea. xx
Magical Summer’s day again - thank you Sydney :) Most of it was spent busy teaching, but happily found thislittle heart on the walk home and now am esconced amidst Spoonful orders, baking plans and creative projects. We are lucky people, us spoilt western world… thea. xx
Beautiful summer days here in Sydney. Spending my time feeling lucky & grateful. thea. xx
These were a gift from Mr Visionary that got him in very very good books - I adore flowers, does that make me a cliche? Oh I don’t care ;) They’re always a welcome gift. ;) Got asked yesterday (on night trip to URGENTLY purchase WAY too many Salt & Vinegar chips, all consumed… oh dear) if I was pregnant with twins. Lol, I’m only half way… uh oh…...
Isn’t this the sweetest series? Makes me super happy & hopeful for the future. Happy Monday Visionaries. :) thea. xx
Japanese Illustration of Pinks by Honzo Zufu ;) I seem to have an obsession with the beauty of old things… Botanical illustrations mesmerize me, and it never seems to fade.. nature meets vintage beauty *happy sighs*. Some pretties found in my travels… thea. xx
Summer days passing by so quickly. Do slow down a little… thea. xx
My talented sister is having a whimsical Valentines POP UP shop at her little house in Kirribilli this Sunday & on Valentines day and so we are all a-flurry crafting little goodies to stock the shelves and bedazzle the eyes with whimsy… Any excuse to stitch just a little before getting back to work… thea. xx
Learning many amazing things about babies and the human body, and keep stumbling over the labour issue - hehe oh dear, but to sum up: A growing appetite + growing bum + growing tum = pregnant thea, lavishly soaking up the lustrous summer days and listening for little flutters… thea. xx
Hello Visionaries! Worked busily today on projects & Spoonful. I’m also looking into painting a mural and seeing what works & doesn’t… you have any favourites? thea. xx
Teaching the little birds to fly on rings and strings… Considering selling strings of these or making a mobile…hmmmm… what do you think I should do? thea. xx
Beautiful day today. Starting to feel better now. Want to get as much done as possible! thea. xx
the first flutter tired. so tired now. Legs, that satisfying tire of having moved, having walked - a distance. And so I sit, quietly and there you are. My little flutter. A Little flutter, brief but strong butterfly wings flapping Hello. Hello little one. x
Pretty Skies. Beautiful city. Hi Dave :) thea. xx
Little moments from today… Packaging up floral Spoonfuls, Gathering the flock Pride of India in bloom, & little fresh buds… thea. xx
Google is all May Gibbs today, gum tree leaves and all… cute! May Gibbs was an Australian’s children’s book illustrator who she lived just down the road from where I am in the cutest little house on the water… thea. xx
Little birds… I have a little news. I am, as I type, not doing so alone, but with a little bird of my own, a ‘mini visionary’ growing in my tummy. It’s a crazy feeling… a heartbeat, a flutter, and love. A love that is darker and more delicate than I have known before. We had a traumatic few days where I thought I’d lost my little bird and I am so very...
This is the same photographer who did the cover of the ‘magic’ Spoonful. Tyreke White - sigh, Love it! thea. xx
