Gocco Giveaway Winner!

And the winner is.................

........... Jenn Erwin.

Congratulations Jenn, I'll post out your bundle of Fantails and a few other goodies as soon as I can.

I think this will be my last post from Australia.

Goodbye for now.
Goodbye Kookaburra laughing down the river
Goodbye spotted Dove cooing outside the window
Goodbye trams trundling over swan street bridge
Goodbye the delicious smell of jasmine
Goodbye the blue sky
Goodbye the gum tree smell which reminds me of home because we used to have one in our garden in Belfast, but has now been cut down.
Goodbye the feeling of guilt when you spend too long in the shower
Goodbye the possums knocking on our ceiling and peeing down the walls
Goodbye the Yarra river sweeping past our house
Goodbye Hawthorn Station and waiting for the train
Goodbye for now my lovely friends
Hope to see you all in Belfast some day soon!

Bridbird is Flying the Nest!

Once again I've lost my camera charger. I just don't understand why this thing is so elusive! You'd think with all this taking apart of our house and belongings I'd find it somewhere along the way. but no. So no new photos.... Oh, but wait, I took some photos on someone else's camera of my exhibition. I'll see if I can find them. In the mean time, just to say, this is the last day to buy any of my gocco prints. I'm shutting shop on these prints and leaving them all behind when I move to Belfast, so they wont be available after today. So if there are any you want, get them now before it's to late! I'll also be announcing the winner of the giveaway later today or tomorrow.

My exhibition will be up until 26th September, but maybe for longer. Bird's Gallery are holding onto the pictures until I return next year or the year after, so if you can't make it during the show I'm sure you can still see them after.

Gocco Giveaway

I'm having a giveaway to help with the stock lessening for my move from Australia to Northern Ireland! All you have to do is go to my bridbird etsy shop, look at all my gocco prints and leave me a comment on this blog post which is your favourite design. The winner will receive a set of 6 different coloured fantail gocco prints similar to the one below. The closing date for this giveaway is Monday 14th September. My bridbird shop $10 sale continues until 15th September, after that the shop will be closed for a number of weeks and possibly not sell these items when open again. This could be your last chance!

Good luck!

I'll also just mention for Melbourne readers the fantastic girls of Thread Den, who are truly amazing, are putting on an extravaganza fashion show for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. It sounds amazing.

They say "it's going to be an amazing night out - with a cast of dancers, live strings, opera singers - and of course stunning couture and ready-to-wear collections from emerging Australian designers.

Tickets are cheap cheap at only $12 (plus booking fee) at the Thread Den shop. And you go into the draw to win a pre-show makeover (and who doesn't love a makeover?) dinner at Sosta Cucina, 
bar tab at the after party and accommodation for two. So what's stopping you? Eh?"
