Magnolia Square

I must admit I hadn't heard of Magnolia Square until I arrived in Australia, but now I have, I am SO excited to be visiting the Sydney event twice. It starts this Thursday at 2pm at the Oaks Lawn Marquee at Randwick Racecourse

& is on for 3 days. I am meeting a friend there for some serious Christmas shopping on Thursday & then I will be there again this Saturday to sign prints and generally just say "hello". You will find me at Habitat Baby with the lovely Carla, from 11am.

If you are attending (& I think you should !) please come by and say 'hi' I will have a large stack of free postcards with me & I love making new Belle & Boo friends.

Oohhh & I just thought I would share this pic I took on the way to the pool, as it contains 2 of my favorite things, blue skies and 'where the wild things are' I am counting down the days :)

Also thank you to Tania for sending me this gorgeous picture & message

"My 6 year old daughter takes ballet lessons and will be performing in a recital in May. Apparently the music comes from "The 4 seasons". The ballet teacher asked the children to draw up a picture inspired by one of the 4 seasons. Caitlin was complaining that she didn't know what to draw, so I told her I knew a lady who did these wonderful drawings and that I would show her on the computer. So, when I showed her your "My favourite spot" drawings she fell in love with "winter". She used your picture as an example and I thought she did pretty well for a 6 year old, so I scanned it and attached it for you. Sending you a little snow for your christmas down under"
