Co incidentally yesterday I received my copy of ecocolour by India Flint and have been devouring its pages... her blog can be found here.
Inspired I took the dog for a walk over the back hill to collect some new colour. I picked fennel heads and know that I 'd get yellow - green dye from it.
The wind blowing through the grasses was quite therapeutic sounding
I picked this weed seed heads (below) and cooked up a pot that is russet in colour
I had to photograph the thistle heads even though I didnt pick them (no room in my bag), because they are so beautiful.
Also did a couple of hours of op shopping with a girl friend and found some blue and white crockery for my sister. A Johnston brothers and 3 Alfred Meakin cup and saucers sets. And some lovely pianola rolls (bargain at $3 each) I'm thinking Ill use the paper to draw on and wrap presents and the reel will be used to wrap yarns around
And a lovely green vase to sit with my other green glasses, all thrifted items, all under $5 each.
