My new Etsy shop is open!

Dear Readers

I hope you are well! Some exciting news.....

My new Etsy shop opened a few days ago. It is called "Barney Street". It's my new label in head wear, and (coming soon) hand printed textiles.

Check out my new shop and see what funky caps I've designed for everyone. Unisex style is the order of the day, plus comfort and portability. Fisherman's caps or fiddler's caps, you tell me! 

You can fold Barney Street caps into your coat pocket and keep going! Great for busy, stylish people on the move. They keep your head warm, too.

See you on Barney Street...

Hot summer

Dear Readers

In Australia at the moment it is hot. VERY hot! The grapevine which grows all around the back covered area of the house is growing crazily. Every few days I have to go out there with scissors and cut a way out into the garden, making a green doorway. There are bunches of grapes forming, too. They will be juicy red table grapes, and will be ready to pick in mid-Autumn.

Sometimes, when the leaves are newly forming on the grapevine, I make dolmades. How delicious! I feel very lucky to be able to grow such an amazing plant where I live.

This image I painted depicts just a tiny section of the grapevine, with all its twists and turns.

PS Happy New Year to you all and thanks for checking out my blog! You can also find me on Instagram: @alisaperks
