This past Sunday was an excellent day.
For one, it was one of those rare, remarkably perfect, crisp-blue Melbourne days that you are all more the grateful for given the city's usual erratic and somehow emotional weather patterns.
Secondly, we took Weenie Mutt down to the beach for a run and found more than 50 sea urchin shells, not to mention a bucket to carry them all in. How fortunate. I understand that for normal people, this isn't exactly exciting, but for me... let's just say the breathtaking wonder of existence is personified by sea urchin shells.
After I recovered from my sea urchin delightedness, we headed over to the other side of the city for the launch of the new Southset gallery and retail space, run by our friends Beth and Luke.
Southset is home to lots of my favourite things: turquoise jewellery, Pendleton rugs, eagle pillows, Millie Studio chopping boards and Howlin' Wolf jewellery. On this particular visit, there were cans of softdrink with cacti on them and Mexican food. What's not to love about that?!
Also, the Southset gallery is the site of my upcoming exhibition, and in the meantime, a few of my prints and posters are available there too...
