Pinterest Picks: Autumn

Pinterest Picks Autumn
Here are some images that are inspiring me this week.

Autumn is here and the leaves are beginning to turn in Orange, which seems to be a more beautiful show each year (or maybe I'm just getting old and appreciating these things more). I'm getting excited about cool, crisp days and long family lunches of slow cooked braises and red wine.

Big Hearted Business - Making a living doing the things you love

I am a big fan of Clare Bowditch, and after reading up on her new venture Big Hearted Business, I love her even more. The Big Hearted Business website explains that the aim is of BHB is "to teach brilliant, creative people how to build strong, successful, caring businesses, without compromising their integrity, their health, or their happiness". I'm sad that I missed the first BHB conference, (the speakers included Lucy Feagins of The Design Files and Pip Lincoln of Meet Me At Mikes) and I have signed up for the waiting list for next year.

This video features one of the speakers at the event, Kemi Nekvapil. It is very inspiring, I really urge you to watch it if you have taken the plunge and started a creative business, or if you are thinking about it. The beautiful chalk art is fun to watch too!

Millthorpe Market Stall

Here are a couple of photos from the Millthorpe Markets on Sunday. Thankfully, the weather held out and it was a lovely day. Thanks to everyone who visited my stall and said hello! There were so many positive comments about my work which was so nice. Thank you also to Harley for helping me out!

This shot below was taken at the Orange Verandah Markets in March showing off the beautiful old set of drawers borrowed from my sister (is it still "borrowing" when you don't ask first?). Thanks Bec!
