Christmas is nearly here! I have to say, I'm thankful for the cooler summer we're having so far. Makes it cosy! Anyway, my latest little book, The Anything Shop, is available online at booktopia and buyaustralianbooks. See the links on the right hand side of my blog.
In other news, I recently spent a week in Perth and had a fabulous time at the Art Gallery and museum. There's a wonderful exhibition on at the moment - "Princely Treasures". princely treasures is a collection form the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. European masterpieces 1600-1800, including religious icons, tapestries, paintings, clothing and jewellery, ornamental pieces such as snuff boxes, weaponry and armour. Even an air powered rifle! If you're a fan of Jane Austen, you'd love it!
This formidably cool dinosaur stands in the entrance hall of the museum
What did I tell you? Jane Austen style shoes
One of the most stunning pieces of furniture I have ever seen. The inlay work is mind boggling. Back in the days when people took pride and a lot of time to create something of exquisite beauty which endures for centuries.
Hm, reminds me of 'Night at the Museum'! Now, where's that bone?
Couldn't resist taking a photo of this well-cared-for little chap, in his sandshoes!!!!
