Recycled Aussies

Presenting a new addition to the Mainichi range, these gorgeous handmade recycled Aussie bush timber beads that I source from Western Australia have been carefully selected for their shape and strung onto a length of my handmade rope. I've got a bunch of different coloured thread from which to make this rope, so if this piece looks like something you'd like in your Christmas stocking give me a hoi!

Moving Forward

Every now and then the furniture needs a change around at home, sweep away the dust from underneath, breathe some fresh air in. I have decided that Mainichi needs a little furniture re-arranging. I'm starting with the blog and it's styling, and I've just recently re-visited the "philosophy" of Mainichi.
So here's the new "bite" from my newly ordered cards, I'd love to know what you think!?

Everyday I aim to:
recycle and re-use
parent gently
tread lightly
& sometimes I even blog.

Kawa Necklaces

These colourful Kawa necklaces jetted off interstate to find new homes via the lovely crew at Breathing Colours Gallery in Balmain, Sydney. If you are in the 'hood stop by and check out the latest exhibition "Two Views" by Neil & Steffie Wallace.  I particularly love Neil's gorgeous painted landscapes of the Bay of Fires in Tasmania - you can see how inspiring the landscape is - who wouldn't want to paint this:

 and waves breaking!

Funny, it's been just over a year since our trip to Tassie, and the boy just asked recently if we could go back and take his baby sister to see the snow! If I could I would be there in a flash......
