Visual Intoxication!

I ventured out to Brunswick Spotlight this morning for some supplies.
Yeh, well let's just say I'll be needing to go to the BIGGER stores in future if I want to find anything I need. But schlepping out to D.F.O. in Essendon somehow doesn't appeal unfortunately.
I did remember to pick up a copy of "Get Creative" and was happy to see an article about Craft blogging. They certainly covered both bases. The colourful and busy Betty Jo blog and the simple, clean style of Aunty Cookie.
And if you flick through the magazine there is an article about making buying and giving handmade gifts featuring Anna Laura. So all in all not a bad read!
So after Spotlight I hit the "oppy strip" in Sydney Rd. and in keeping with the "drunk with colour" notion of Lino Forest, here are some cheerful items I picked up to brighten my kitchen and workbench, and help me get cracking with some more brooches!Buttons from Savers...that's a first. Sitting on a very gorgeous "Acapulco" dinner plate.Looks like a good match with my "Gaytime" cannister.


  1. Article looks good Liz - I'll have to pick up a copy of the mag! Brunswick Spotty just isn't worth it - do the trek to Essendon. But what a Sydney Rd oppy haul! I am impressed.

  2. Love the "drunk with colour" description of Betty Jo.
    I want to visit your op shops one day... mayb e in future, minus kids :)

  3. What eye candy. I'll pick up a copy of Get Creative.

  4. A mag that features Betty Jo - now that's worth a trip to Spotlight!

  5. Sounds like a great day. Pleased you're going to pop along to say hi at Mag Square.


Hi! It's very nice to receive your comment. I'll go and visit you too.
