Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

Verandah Market Day ... Saturday, Nov 24th



Silver jewellery by Roz Hawker - 'Tree of life'

                  Hello there,

Thanks to the lovely Roz Hawker I'm extending you an invitation to join us on the southside in Brisbane on Saturday afternoon, Nov 24th, 2-4pm... next week in fact at Roz's sister's residence in Sunnybank Hills for a Verandah Market that Roz is doing for the second year in a row.


You're welcome to share this invitation with your friends ....  alternatively, pop into my studio in Paddington by appointment from Monday Nov 26th until Xmas. Roz will also be contactable after the Verandah Market weekend through her blog.

The private residence address isn't on the public notice so we would love you to make contact via this blog or by email:  

s o p h i e m u n n s @ i i n e t . n e t . a u    

and we will send out the details for the Sunnybank Hills address

ps: Cards and hand-made things suitable for seasonal gift-giving are the focus... Roz makes wonderful silver jewellery for great prices + textile pieces and more! Small and inexpensive items for the most part all under $100.

 Roz's blog : http://rozhawker.blogspot.com.au  

Ive posted a few of Roz's jewellery pics below... be sure to see more excellent images at Roz's blog.





I spy things to love in Roz's pics!









Roz does wonderful things with textiles and stitching too... this is a piece from her blog gallery to give you a clue to her general aesthetic. However  .... what she will have in store for the day will be a surprise. Stay tuned.

As for what I have to bring to the table... my ( new ) camera needs its battery replaced - must have left it on? So no new pics this week sorry. Have been lino-printing over the past week...  experimenting on paper and linen. Thinking small + affordable . Had some RSVP's today after starting to send out email invites to those I know in this part of the world this morning. 

Will post images very soon! 

Sure wish we weren't scattered around the globe when it comes to sharing each others events...

wishing all well!
Sophie

Hi Ronnie!
Wonderful seeing Roz in the blogsosphere and observing the strand of her practice... fascinating and varied yet parallel explorations despite mediums and such.
thanks for your good wishes and hope all is good in the south!

Sophie Munns said...

Sure do wish you could be here too Velma.
Such a lovely idea ...the verandah market...and in November before it gets too busy is perfect.

If only you weren't so far away Sophie, I'd love to be there.

Sophie Munns said...

It would be wonderful to have you joining us Ro... so far away! Do hope all is going well down there in your part of the cosmos!
