Hello all!
Hope you have all had a great weekend!
Just letting everyone know... I have donated the competition this month for the TCCT (the chocolate crow trader) to enter... all you need to do is email me a funny quote or saying!
wendyolsen8@bigpond or join my website mailing list alternatively... If you leave a comment here I will also enter you in the draw!
By entering you can win Ol' Hetty the prim angel! She is aged and scented and oh so quirky!!

The competition will be drawn on the 13th of March and I will email the winner as well as announcing it on the TCCT!!

Soooo..... please pass it around and spread the word!

Hetty needs a new home!

Another post for today!!

Hello all,
I have been extremely busy over the past few weeks! I am painting fine art for the painting site I have been given at The Jindi Harvest of Gippsland, as well as for several art shows I have entered!
I did manage to get one weeks painting in for my Market stall that was looking mighty empty, it is looking a bit better, but not quite up to the cluttered stage I am really happy with!
That is my Daughter behind the stall! She is a great help!
The Berwick show is on the 28 th of February, and we need to pack up our stall to make way for that... it is the only day of the year we aren't at the market! Yay... a day off, sort of!
I am lucky to be able to work from home, and then go out and sell my things at the market.
I haven't quite got into the swing of things yet, and I must get posting things to my website again ( for this week ,I will be adding the items I have listed in the last posts here!
Take care all!!

And some more!!

A few of my new things I will be listing on my website this week!

Childhood memories....

I used to own this book as a child.
It horrified me and scared me, but i loved looking at it.
I used to wonder why Punch was so horrible....
Now I wonder where that old copy went!
It was so old, its pages were like plaster attached to material...
I think I have a new goal for the year... to find a copy!

A few things coming up....

Hello to all!

Here is a sneak peek at what I am adding to The Chocolate Crow Trader coming out on the 15th of December!!
I know it is the valentines and teddy edition.... but I failed to finish in time!!
Next month will hopefully see me on track.... I doubt it but I will try!
I have had a small clean out of some of my clutter... It doesn't look any different!
By clutter I mean the ever growing pile of things to paint!!
Currently in the pile and on the shelves are about 10 teapots, three big kettles, 6 tea towels, about a dozen patchwork panels to be painted, 12 signs, 6 suitcases of various size and age! A bread box, a potato and onion box, an egg cupboard, 3 sets of vintage scales, a box, a magazine rack, a spice shelf 10 jars, 6 condiment bottles, 3 sets of salt and pepper shakers, about a dozen dolls needing faces, clothes and hair, 1 that needs clothes, and one that just needs hair......... I know there is more buried under there.... I have about 6 weeks to get through it all... well I wish anyway!
In 6 weeks we have to pack up our permanent stall site, to make way for the Berwick show.... what a job!! I have all the stock plus tiered shelving, lattice walls, and two shelves, a set of drawers, and a large rust coloured wire shelf bowl thingy.... I don't know its exact purpose, but it is great to hang dolls on, and put teddies and scented thingy's in!!
I am dreading the pack up!! Then the storage... then the set up again fiasco which sees nothing go back the way it ought to!!
Oh well.... must be done!
There... That is my whinge for the week!
Take care all!!
