Muse of the Day!

I am completely inspired by the enchanting beauty and incredible style of model Kelley Ash.

Her bohemian spirit is captured in her photographs as she takes you on a journey driven by deep romanticism and a nostalgia from the ever so fading past. She captures her gypsy life on road trips in the dessert, through her beautiful discoveries along the way..... and how absoluley stunning does she look in vintage inspired knitwear.

Little Obsession

Today Im totally obsessed by another Aussie living abroad, Maryanne Moodie. She's a fiber loving artist from Australia who now lives in New York. Her woven wall hangings are an absolute DREAM and Im completely in love and inspired by her work and nostalgic designs.

I could choose motifs like Micky Mouse or have my name knitted into a sweater which was so cool at the time.
