Can’t help myself. Have decided to have a pop up weekend shop at our new place. It’s so lovely here that it felt wrong not to, so – AS WELL AS – doing a pop up @thehappenstore on the 1st Dec, we are running our own the following week on the 8 and 9th. Of course this has put me in a major frenzy of making which is stressful but so very enjoyable. After all, making things makes us feel good. Ain’t that right?

Manda wanted to take Virginia off grid so, with a little help from a bunch of willing strangers we pushed her by hand to this spot. Now all we need is some help with sorting out some solar power. @kal_mac we are ready for you!

And then I discovered that if you pull up the freshly dead native lily ( aka patersonia – I know the name of that one!) it is still soft and pliable and creates a lovely droop and then I guess will dry in this position. It’s rather exciting moving to a new home and discovering what happens to the plants through the full season. Next month we will have been here a full year. Man it’s gone fast.

Here’s some blooming marvellous news for you spontaneous adventurer types – we’ve had a cancellation and now both cabins are amazingly available this weekend, precisely as Blackheath goes off with the Rhodo Festival and we open Rough Track Gallery to the public for the very first time! Fancy a bit of creative excitement? Or maybe escaping the heat on a cool walk through the Grand Canyon rainforest beneath us? Or even take your last chance to check out the waratahs before the season ends? Go on, book a cabin, or invite your mates and book them both! And because we are so down to the wire we will take a booking for one night. PM Panda @roughtrackcabins or click the link in the bio to book online. #roughtrackcabins #bluemountainsnsw #blackheathnsw #visitnsw #australiannatives #waratah
