Earthquake, puppy love and etsy

Last night we were watching the 20th anniversary of Foreign Correspondent (a documentary on the ABC), seeing reports of major dramas, natural and man made, around the world when we thought we were going to be having a drama of our own. There was a huge rumbling noise, the house and windows shook, the dog went crazy. It was an earthquake, magnitude 5.3, which isn't high by some standards, but high enough when one's not accustomed to earthquakes. Bush fires are our horror, but we're used to them, this was another matter.

Today I've been adding some more hand carved stamps, lace, fabric and button kits to my Etsy.

cup and saucer stamp

abstract flower stamp
honesty seed head stamp

trees stamp
leaf stamp

rosebud stamp


multi coloured hand dyed lace pack




fabric and button kits for journal making, there are enough strips of fabric, fibres, beads and buttons to decorate the spines of at least two journals. They can also be used in collage etc.


little Charlie


puppy love.

Thanks again for visiting and for the comments on my last post, catch up soon.

The very thought of experiencing an earthquake, however mild, fills me with fear. So glad you are all safe. Poor little Charlie - good that he had you to comfort him and I hope you had someone to comfort you!
Love the new stamps and the gorgeous packs are just full of essence of Ro!!

Charlie looks very at home on your lap Ro! My windows rattled during the earthquake and it sounded like a freight train was going past my unit...very strange feeling wasn't it? Agree with Jacky that there are lots of treasures n this post.

Love the abstract flower one Ro! You have one cute little puppy friend too. I could take him home, though not sure my furry feline friend would like that much!
