Sunshine and Slow Days

It really has been a weekend of rain, grey skies and coughs and colds in our home. We have had to make the sunshine – cooking chicken pie, lighting the open fire, reading the paper, sharing a drink with friends. Simple things. A slow pace. This is life.


Another treasure of handmade goodness is Est in Auburn. It carefully stocks a range of Australian artisans who create beautiful useable products from wool, cotton, linen, leather, felt and more. Gifts abound, smells delight and there is something to wear and use for everyone! The owner who has a background in textiles has ensured that there are bolts of linen of various quality and style in an abundance, which always inspires me. I noticed that the media review on the Est website has them reviewed in Slow magazine and Dumbo Feather, Pass it on. Have you read them? Est is worth a visit and I will be telling my creative friends to get there goodies there pronto.
