This week we are having a visit from Jigglypuff's "cousin" Poppy - who is my sister's cat. They are not real cousins, but since we sister's are their adoptive mothers that makes them related somehow.

Picaso to Warhol at the Art Gallery of WA

Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters from The Museum of Modern Art, New York16th June - 3rd Dec 2012 at the Art Gallery of Western Australia
We went to this exhibition a few weeks ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was awed to be standing in front of the likes of Picasso and Jackson Pollock. I was fascinated with seeing an actual Calder Mobile.  There were Mondrian's and Matisse's, as well asJasper Johns.  I was very entertained by the Warhol's - especially the Campbell's soup cans - because of our family name. I came across some other modern artists which I knew very little about, and snapped a couple of photos of works using patchwork and crochet as their themes. All in all, a wonderful exhibition.

I was looking through some old photos and came across these ones of Jigglypuff. I used to keep scarves in this basket, and she thought it might be a nice place to sit.

  • Don't forget to enter my Enid Blyton giveaway if you live in Australia. Sorry I can't open it internationally. I think this is the first one I've done that's been restricted though. It's only because it weighs so much and the postage would cost too much.

Enid - A movie about Enid Blyton

Warning - May contain some spoilers.



The other week, my husband and I watched Enid (2009) about the life of Enid Blyton. Enid was very skillfully portrayed by Helena Bonham Carter.

Just some stuff I made.

Here are two projects I made which were inspired by pictures on Pinterest
I can't find the exact posts, but you've probably seen the same ideas around the net lately.
The first is a magnet board. I used a tray I got from an op shop and then sprayed it black. 
My hubby drilled two holes for me and I added a decal I got from Typo
