GOMA turns 10

The gallery of modern art turned 10 and to celebrate they put on an amazing show with some big show stopping exhibits! It was also the most crowded I've ever seen it so I had to keep reminding myself that everyone was probably wishing it was a little less packed and wished that Ben and I would have stayed home that day :p As always I include the artist and title of each work in my Flickr tags, so just click on any photo you want to know more info about :)



GOMA - glass deer






It was my first time to see a Ron Mueck piece in person and wow! how amazing - awe smacked for sure!



To remember all the artists and titles I take a photo of the info following the photo of the artwork - makes life much easier! GOMA was pretty packed that you even needed to line up to read the info card!


GOMA - Fluro fur



This fur was amazing and even though my hair has definitely faded, I still felt like I fitted in :)


Everyone was doing it!





They even had a giant slide down the middle!




GOMA - elephant


A lot of the exhibitions had been in previous collections, including this installation where you can write a letter and leave it behind and you can also read those left behind by others :)






GOMA - brisbane



Afterwards we walked over to the museum to get inspiration for clay making!
I'll be doing a seperate post for all my museum photos :) :)

Snail Mail /10

So this utterly amazing parcel appeared in my mailbox the other week. It had traveled all the way from Spain, sent from the lovely Damaris who blogs at The Cat you and Us! You already know that she is one of my favourite blog gals and I'm sure we would be ultra friends in real life too :) Her parcel was so so special and everything in it made me do huge big smiles!!!

When you first find a Gachapon capsule, pastel pink and twine you know things are going to be wonderful :)

I made sure (before diving in) to appreciate all the pretty tape she had used on all the little parcels!

Wowsers! Blown away + cheeks hurting from smiling so much! I have to mention that adorable cat purse because I don't think I got a good close up photo of it. Damaris was also very smart to include the little info card inside to know it's by Kishboo! They make such pretty bags and jewellery!

Check out that adorable Christmas card, I can't imagine a card more perfect and yup it definitely matches our pink tree! On a side note we thought we might have issues this year with Peachy and the tree but she was happy just to munch on the bottom non-breakable ornaments :) OH OH and Japnese kit Kat!!!!

On an extra side note, it's been a really intense last week with Peachy suffering a brown snake bite.  Peachy is a warrior princess though and despite being still really sick, I have lots of faith in her full recovery :)  I might blog a bit more about it all but she's still in the thick of it so it's nice for me at the moment to distract myself with super happy things like snail mail!!! 99% of the other time I'm giving Peachy gentle pats and telling her how pretty she is :) :)

How frighten cute is that patch and sticker by Pony People, Ben remarked afterwards that I pretty much have to make that planter now - eep, we'll see might be a big challenge!!

The Japanese candies were so perfect, we both got to travel to Japan last year (separately *sad face*) and Damaris and Dani are still blogging their awesome adventures of Japan over on their blog at the moment.  They take such amazing photos you definitely need to have a peep!

Ariel biscuit! oh my gosh, how cute is that and I can personally say the apple crackers were one of the best things I've eaten :)

And then an actual Ariel pin from their trip To Disney Sea! *gasp* it's now one of the most special things I own, it's glittery and pretty and the clasp on the back is shaped as Mickey! How cool is that! I wore it out the other day and was super worried about losing it but it seems to secure really well so I probably should get over that paranoia! Oh and the Gachapon had Sailor Uranus!! Eep, so so wonderful and I feel so lucky to have received everything inside :) :) So much thanks, special lady!

Light painting


















I love playing with long exposures.  I'll also probably never get sick of light painting especially when it's with sparklers!!

HAPPY 2017!!
