If you know me, you know I’m not fond of aphorisms - I find this tendency to look for the truth in a few words applicable to any situation as vulgar as dangerous. But lately I can’t get out of my mind a sentence which was said to me a few years ago.
Once a week a girl would come to my parents house to help. I admired her a lot for her sensibility and culture, and for the fact that she had been in a great variety of places, from India to Northern Europe, until the Middle East, taking her baby girl with her.
One day I told her I thought it was fantastic that she had travelled so much. She replied, simply: “Whoever travels a lot will never tell you he has travelled a lot”. I often think about this_

Still on the Pastel pink & dowel train popping out this is disgustingly cute & kitsch melting bathroom shelf out of timber scraps for our Brunswick home. Got a bit wild in the studio with left over paint & a roll of cardboard- all the curves!! - please excuse my amateur photography/ desk lamp lighting 🙃maybe I’ll make something a bit more serious soon! #furnituredesign #meltedicecream #pinkpinkpink #corrugatedcardboard
I...LOVE....TO...SHOP! Anyone else???? This holiday season try shopping small. What does that mean? It means to shop from small businesses and entrepreneurs. Did you know that many people have small direct sales companies that allow them to stay home with their families while running a business! What do you get from shopping small?? You get amazing customer service because unlike the big stores...we appreciate and value all sales..big and small and take pride in not only providing great customer service but we love to spoil our customers. You also get fantastic products! Did you know that Scentsy will replace a warmer if it stops working no matter how long you own it...will a big box store do that...ummm...no. What else do you get? You get the knowledge that you are providing a way for so many moms to be home with their families...that's a great thing!
So this season shop small.
