AWOL Creative Space

Just in case any of you were thinking I've dropped off the face of the Earth, I'm taking a little holiday with my family in Brisbane. I therefore don't really have a Creative Space for you today mainly because I haven't figured out how to upload my photos on to my Dad's computer. In the meantime, check out my Mum's awesome creative space circa 1978.

I suspect my parents may have had shares in Fisher Price. No wonder I have a slight obession with vintage Fisher Price toys. Mum still has that knitting machine and I have a strong suspicion that that is my current sewing machine.

And here's a photo of me modelling one of Mum's creations whilst mauling a wallaby on holiday in Oz, circa 1973.


Pop over to visit the hostess with the mostess for some proper Creative Spaces.

Enjoy some sunshine! I'm absolutely drooling at your mother's space - light, bright and welcoming [check], tidy [check], cupboards for Africa [check], a door [check]....and now back to reality(sigh). Well its something to aim for in the future. All the best

Hi, welcome to our little town. Its rather New Zealand style weather at the moment I fear. I love your mum's space, so bright and welcoming. Enjoy your holiday. :)

I see the Fisher Price! Hello, my friends! I remember the little chalk desk.

And I dig the 70s room! There's so much in there that's just great ... right down to the handles on the drawers.

Fab photo!
