Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet. - Roger Miller

It has been steadily raining where I live for more than 7 weeks now. We get the odd day of sunshine but usually it's rain. There seems to be a congestion of cyclonic weather off the coast and most of our usually lovely, sunny, better-put-your-sunscreen-on-before-your-skin-melts-off heated summer days have become wet, dreary and beyond irritating. Flooding, roads blocked, roads broken up by wet ground under the tarmac, mould growing on everything, and it all coincides with the school holidays. Big Yay.

So this blog is picture tribute to the loveliness of rain, because if I don't start thinking about the lovliness I'm going to go crazy

All things Tea Party

So Tea Parties have been on my mind ever since the women in my family have decided to pool together every qtr and drink tea, coffee, booze and hang out. We're talking cousins, Aunts, Grandparents, 2nd cousins, etc etc.

I'm hosting the next one. It will be the 4th Tea Party and I have been inspired by so many things ... as it's going to be in March I've decided everyone must come with a hat on their head.

I think that eventually I'll let colour dictate the rest ...

Maybe you can organise a tea party for your family or friends? Here's some prettiness to inspire you

Kitty Boo Boo's Last Market for 2010

5pm - 9pm

Spread over three venues

King George Square 

Albert St

Burnett Lane

Brisbane City, Qld


The BrisStyle Indie Twilight Markets in Brisbane's CBD have become renowned for being "Brisbane's HOTtest destination for everything "handmade" under the stars", promoting local indie artists and bringing to the city the most fashionable, hip and quirky wares that revive traditional crafts with a decidedly contemporary feel.

The December 17 Christmas Market is set to evoke those nostalgic and traditional memories from the Queensland Christmases and Summer Holidays of everyone's childhoods and will be a night of entertainment and Christmas cheer for all the family.

The City centre will provide the perfect setting to showcase the talented local designers BrisStyle, with marketeers setting up their lantern-lit stalls beneath the King George Square's statuesque Christmas tree and down into Albert Street and around into the hip Burnett Lane precinct.

In particular, Burnett Lane will turn on its own quirky and unique brand of Christmas magic with edgy designers as well as local indie performers. A video Installation will be projected onto the walls of the Laneway depicting the Handmade Holiday theme which will capture the quirky Christmas memories of days gone by.

The big band sounds of the "Brisbane Excelsior Band" Australasia's premier brass band will fill King George Square with the sounds of Christmas while the Allstar Jazz trio and street performers roam through the crowds.

The Markets will be supporting the Lord Mayor's Community Trust with a Christmas Hamper full of gorgeous handmade wares donated by all the stallholders with councilor Fiona King drawing the winning ticket on the night.

Support your local community and shop ethically this Christmas at Brisbane's HOTtest destination for everything handmade under the stars.
