day 29. reading katherine mansfield's, the doll's house. spooning salted caramel and white chocolate gelato from messina. saving silvers for a bunny bag to match my cat-face clutch. humming along to the paper kites's new ep, young north. and tomorrow, the last day of the month...
feeling ill from too-too-many raw brownies.

a bit of a dill (tee. hee.) when it comes to adding a pinch of green to your dish? Stonesoup's herb how-to is the bees knees of eat-more-plants guides. also, her recipe for quinoa tabbouleh is well worth a visit to the grocer or just maybe, your own patch of soil? how does your garden grow? p.s. i have a chicken coop!! i know, i know, i'm gloating. jessie x

isn't she lovelie? WOWEEE!! talk about a beauty of a bride. and the farmstead festivity! golly. i nearly- almost proposed a toast of forever and ever to the unbeknown, "you're the one that i want" pair of these, "let's live happily here onwards" wedding snaps. selecting a few to woo you with was no trouble whatsoever. UMMMING over which not to include on the other hand was rather tricky (i'm sure you'll understand the pickle i was in at first sight). don't fret!! there are more and more and... "my better half" piccies from this wonderous day of celebration in this album. ps. don't forget to sign the guest list. i did, (do). jessie xx

pastel geometric rings, by a merry mishap.
this is super-super-excitng and rather excellent! the folk behind the collective On William have started a small side project. acting as a career network for Western Australia's clever visionaries, Creative Crops provides an opportunity for all you talented Perth persons to dust off your portfolio and bin your black slacks. so... don't follow your dreams, chase them here.

nothing is nicer than being surrounded by your bits and belongings tucked away in your own secret space. it saddens me that in a little less than a week i will no longer come home to my bedroom with its pink streamer-like curtains and old rickety furniture balancing leaning books and ceramic critters. inspired by silly, joyful dreams Lucky Boy Sunday and their collection of softies and wooden wonders are at the top of my 'new room' wish list. this hanging pot is beary close behind, as are these pretty paper bowls sweet for housing trinkets. of course my 'new' towering bed will need 'new' shoes (pretty pegs) and it is always fun to play in overalls speckled in paint after a trip to Ikea. don't believe me? be sure to visit Emily over at The Sweet Beast. oh! and i will need a 'new' chair to place somewhere in the corner. sigh! there really is no place like home...

tonite the girlies and i are going for a bit of a boogie. we have the fever! perhaps a visit past Chinatown on the way home is in order?! it is after-all too easy to be lured by its bright lights and hide-and-seek lanes. plus, one of my dance partners is on an 'eat rice wrapped in seaweed and stuffed with cucumber' diet. when i say diet i really mean pursuit. Chinatown is a Go Go!! soy sauce and wasabi me please!

talk to us about my favourite tune of yours, Little Frog... this song is set in-and-about the suburbs my siblings and i called home a few years ago. each was within one kilometre of the other, yet mine was visited the least frequently because it was ‘a little too far'. simply, all these small scenes intertwine within the same locale. my sister calls this her song because it includes a moment when i visited her to help draw hundreds of geometric shapes for an architecture project that kept her up till the wee hours. any tips and tricks for knock-knees stage fright? whiskey. can you name something you have won? twenty pennies in the Melbourne Cup (when i was two). what did you blue-tac to your walls as a teen? mostly all things Smashing Pumpkins, Beastie Boys and Garfield, as well as scholastic posters of cutsie animals. what about something you have made from scratch? well that's easy, the stop-motion video for Little Frog. is there anything particular you fancy learning? Marine Biology and Japanese. best cure for a sore throat? hot toddies with manuka honey, plus lots of rest and patience. bright lips or blushed cheeks? i do both, i didn’t realise i had to choose? do you have any up-and-coming gigs we can get tickets to ASAP? yes! yes! come along and have a bop at the launch of my new album, Two Seas. Diary dates can be found here. hoorah! or should i say, galoomp! galoomp!
