“Fall has always been my favorite season.
The time when everything bursts with its last beauty,
as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”
It doesn’t feel like Autumn yet, but I can see glimpses of it in colored leaves and where the sun shines through my kitchen windows.
This week is filled with all sorts of interesting things: a seminar specifically to help immigrants like me navigate Australian business, a bakery date with Bear, and a bustling artisan market in our village of Allora.
I’ve been wood-burning for weeks, nay, months, in preparation, filling storage bins with all sorts of wooden beauties.
Like this picture frame – I love the waves in the wood grain.
And this lovely glossy bowl that shimmers in the light.
This cute little spice bottle is my latest addition to my collection, just added last night.
And I’m smitten by the variations in coloring in these acacia wood salad servers.
It’s been sheer pleasure making all these things, the scent of wood smoke wafting through the house as if we have a wood-stove crackling away.
If you are anywhere near Allora this weekend, or fancy a drive in the country to see the last of the sunflower fields, come on down to the Allora RSL Hall between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to say hello to yours truly, and see all sorts of beautiful handmade objects from an array of skilled artisans.
If you can’t make it to Allora but would still like to see more wood-burned items, pop over to my Etsy shoppe for a visual wander.
Wishing you a beautiful week. XO What creative outlet makes your heart happy?
