Rhapsody in bleu.. 'Home is where the heart is'..

Spotted.. a little hard to miss, on Fitzgerald St. North Perth. This marvelous montage commissioned by Paragon Property was created over a few days by WA artist Daek William. The size and diversity of this huge endeavour is a tribute to the skill of the artist whose work you have seen here before. On the day I took these shots it looked particularly 'fetching' under the true blue WA sky. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

Shop Window.. Cobbler, cobbler mend my boot!

Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe.
Get it done by half past two.
Half past two is much too late!
Get it done by half past eight.

In the window of 'Cobbler Express' in Piccadilly Arcade sits a cobbler whose hammer, although you can't see it here, never stops in the attempt to 'get it done'! In the brightly lit shop filled with many manly things, such as silver mugs, hip flasks, belts and key rings, some not quite so manly, I love that this wee cobbler is embracing his feminine side :) It is officially the 1st day of summer here in Australia.. let the sweltering begin! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

People's Climate March - 'There is no Planet B'..

Yesterday (Sunday) 7,000 people in Perth joined in a national rally, 350 community groups joining Aboriginal elders and religious leaders to send a message to the world leaders in Paris for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, the aim being 'to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate from all nations in the world' You may have heard that here in WA there have already been lives lost in the bush fires in Esperance. Quote from the WA president of the United Firefighters Union, "There are no sceptics of climate change when you are behind a hose". Was there a rally in your city/town yesterday/today? Happy Monday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. what are the chances of the nations of world agreeing on anything.. seriously! p.p.s. late night, catch up today!

Money Tree in Washing Lane..

In Northbridge last week I noticed Washing Lane for the first time. I was intrigued.. many laundromats all in a row? Washing Lane, 'resurrected and renewed' in the upgrade of the Northbridge area during the Perth City Link project was full of surprises one of which was the money tree below. It is said that if you stand under the Chinese Money Tree luck, prosperity and longevity will come your way. I did stand under the money tree and while I'm more than happy with health and well being if my lotto numbers come in, well who am I to argue with fate.. I'm a very good sharer :) Wishing you a happy and healthy Sunday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. did you notice the lucky red border :)

Reaching for the sky..

The Bell Tower, home to the historic bells from St. Martins-in-the-Field, you can listen to them here, sitting on the banks of the Swan River since 2001 is a pretty unique structure whichever way you look at it. I know I've shown it before but who can resist another view or two.. are you thinking armadillo, or is that just me :)

We got a pleasant surprise when we ventured down to see how the Elizabeth Quay project was progressing.. the area immediately around the Bell Tower has been a disastrous mess during the construction of EQ, but here it is now all spruced up and ready for visitors. What are you up to this weekend.. it's the markets, a four year old's birthday party and a protest rally for moi :) Whatever you get up to take care and stay safe...

Light up my life...

As long as I can remember I've had a hankering for an Art Nouveau/Art Deco lamp to light up a cosy corner, particularly the figurine lamps, they're so graceful and elegant don't you think. As much as I'd like one they really don't fit in with the rest of my decor so I torment myself every time I'm in Subiaco by popping in to Petticoat Lane to drool over the fine collection they have on display, lovely don't you think? Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. maybe one day I'll have to create a spot for one of these beauties :) p.p.s. love 1920's humour :)

Things to be thankful for...

These two shots were taken minutes apart a few days after Friday the 13th on a warm and sunny day in the Supreme Court Gardens on St. Georges Terrace. Whichever way you read your world news, newspaper or iPad, when the news is grim it's grim, but however appalling events around the world are right now there is always something to be thankful for. I'm thankful that my three year old great niece survived the accident that killed her mother four months ago and I'm thankful for the safe arrival of a new baby in the family this week. Happy Thanksgiving Day to all who celebrate, take care and stay safe...
