Found: Gretel Girl

The other day I pottered into Gertrude street for coffee with two new and lovely friends Laura (maker of a very lovely nook for me in their home) and Chris (hilarious fan of Derek – my dinosaur). We planted our selves on the window seat in a spiffy cafe, our legs hanging over the sill/seat while we were served flat whites and savoury feta, ham and tomato muffins.. DELISH!

Being ‘magpie like’ I was distracted from our conversations of life, love and coffee by our view from the window sill/seat. Cute street art, a ginger man with chin straps and his little asian fiance having photo’s together on said street art and a beautifully dressed lady drinking her coffee and drawing a gorgeous fox illustration. I had a feeling that the fox drawer had a kind disposition so pottered over to ask her who she was and what she does.

Meet Tracey, from Adelaide,who was in Melbourne for an art/craft fair. She is an artist and runs a business from her art called Gretel Girl. She draws beautifully detailed illustrations and also transfers them on to ceramics and wood blocks PLUS she is super friendly and pretty! She also seemed to think similarly to us ‘Foxes’ about living  life generously with art and creativity and making tracks!

She and her husband sound pretty awesome too, she has decided to do what she loves, her art, for a living and her husband is studying. Doing what they want and what they love setting an example for their kids that money isn’t everything if you get to do what you love! That is pretty cool! 

So check out beautiful Gretel Girl, like her on facebook and buy some of her gorgeous work! If you’re in Sydney you can find her yourself at Finders Keepers Dec 8th and 9th! 

This one is my favourite! ‘Not on my watch!’

Weekend in pictures…

Well, it’s been a windy and rainy weekend in the UK…

Hanna and hubs scrapped all plans and stayed in with good food (lots of it) and drink watching Prometheus and rubbish weekend telly.

 

 

Celeste has been hanging out in Melbourne and celebrated the wedding of her bestie with gorgeous food, we can’t wait to hear all about it when she’s back!

Sarah has rekindled her love of knitting (and it’s looking great!) and braved the weather to go see Daniel and the Good Ones rock the Rattlesnake.

We hope you stayed warm and dry this weekend!

Celeste, Sarah and Hanna xx
