A few items of inspiration are sitting inside waiting for me to open out the cabinet door. In the frame is a print I just received from the talented Blossombird. It makes me so happy! Keeping the cabinet smelling divine is a lavendar sachet I scored from Flickettysplits at a recent market (just for being a fellow blogger). Then there's this wonderful object, a bit of sewing ephemera I found a few months ago:
It's an old spool holder. I was in a quirky Brunswick second-hand store and the bird caught my eye. When I was told what it was, my delight grew, but I decided I wasn't in the market for any more kitsch. And THEN... I noticed the writing. It's from Marysville. The Victorian town that was so recently devastated by bushfires. I bought it immediately.
