Another of Rainer's Paintings........

He just keeps pumping them out!!

This one is called "Mystique"

It is another one of his "unsketched" artworks -  It is somehow an ice-cave, with a Fire-Bird watching as the thought-bubbles gently rise up to the surface, only to be turned into ice and gently rain on down again for the whole process to begin over once more - rather like life itself!

Tell me why are we here???.......................

We have survived the terrible dust storms of the last two days ..... but now they say there will be another storm overnight!!!  -  On top of that, there are fires in the hinterland - so not only do we have dust in our lungs, we also have smoke.

My nose is burning, my throat is burning, my mouth is dry, my hair is like straw........... tell me again - why the hell did I leave Queenstown's crisp mountain air for this?????

I've Finished my Jacket!!!

Wahoooo!!!  I have finally finished my Baroque Jacket....... just take a look at this!!!

For more photos, just click onto my Art-to-Wear section under "categories" in the main menu.....

I have used an eclectic mix of VINTAGE fabrics - linen, lace and old cotton crocheted doillies, along with vintage buttons  - to give a soft baroque military-feel to this jacket.

As some of you will know, I have been struggling with a very sick sewing machine, but being the capricorn that I am, I did not give up - and this is the result!!!

I am happy tonight  :)

Do have a look at it - it is wonderful.

Jacket Update

I thought I'd show you all the progress of my new spring/summer jacket range....

I have been plodding away with this, using the most exquisite vintage brocades and satins, with a little Irish Linen and Vintage Lace.

It is not finished yet, but I thought you'd like to see it so far......

Watch this Blog for updates as I progress.

A blast from the past!!!

I have to share with you this wonderful blast from my past!!!

My cousin from New Zealand has contacted me after 25 years!!!  How Good is That???!!!  I'm so over the moon with happiness.

Also, Rainer's cousin over in Germany has contacted him, after nearly 30 years!!!  This is just so wonderful. 

Here we both are over here in the Colonies, thinking no-one loves us, and bugger me, in the short span of only 1 week we both get contact from long lost rellies.

Long Live FACEBOOK!!!!

I've put together a quick collage of the family - have a look.

Till next time - Cheers, Carol xxx

The Adventures of Khubla-Ted

You have to look at this!!!

We have put our minds together and come up with a new story...........

The Adventures of Khubla-Ted.........

.........Late one night, down at the bottom of the Garden, as Khubla-Ted was readying himself for bed, his "sonic ear" was alerted to the distressed call of a young Sprite.

His Nemisis - a Midget with the name of "Red-Ted", has stolen the Garden Faerie, and has taken her away as his slave...............

This story will be a continuing saga - so please watch this space.........

(I am dedicating this story to my darling grand-daughter, Samara)xxx
