Harvest time…

26 02 2015

Darlings! It’s blackberry season in our neck of the woods – which always delights us, of course, because it’s the harbinger of Blackberry Nip. Yay!!

Well, Rose and Blackberry Nip to be more precise [Megsie’s added a splash of rose this year and it’s absolutely divine. n(Ed)]

We’ve made some jam on the side – but it’s really all about The Nip, eh.

Good enough to eat. We love this piece of Nick Wirdnam’s, For Speed Strength and Endurance, shown at the Worth Gallery in Adelaide during the Ausglass Conference 2015…


[Which is hardly surprising given our penchant for garlic! All the translucency of freshly dug new season bulbs. Yum. n(Ed)]

Nob napery…

Dah-lings!! The latest trend in napery (though it was probably big back in the ’70’s) – the phallic fold – spotted last night in Seminyak…

We imagine it’ll take off, big time.

[Takes you back, eh! n(Ed)]

We’ve just realised that we have completely neglected to post any progress reports re Prisoners of the Crown! Dear oh dear, what a shocking oversight!


So: Megsie is still patiently(!) waiting for her cold-shop, but Ginger is quietly getting underway…
