Well, the school fete is over for this year… I was exhausted last night – we also had a gymnastics carnival and my youngest son’s 7th birthday this weekend – but it was fun. Surprisingly I sold t-shirt yarn, eyeglass cases, word art cards and Dutch Houses, but no pencil rolls! So I am in the process of adding the pencil rolls I showed here last week to my Etsy shop, where I have created a new Pencil Rolls section. The shop will be getting a bit of a make-over in the next few weeks, but I will write more about that later.
Today was an unusually cold and wet day here in Brisbane, but spring has definitely sprung – look at that jacaranda on the other side of our street! Hurray, my favourite time of the year is here!
Last but not least, some fun news: Blue Jacaranda is part of the Lily and Gus 2000 fan celebration! Do hop over to their website to enter the giveaway to win the fabulous prize pack in the photo above! (Lily and Gus is one of my favourite Etsy shops – it’s where I got an adorable whale for my youngest son)
On the About page of this website you can read how I fell in love with the jacarandas in 2007, our first year in Brisbane. These gorgeous trees only flower for a short time every year; from mid-September until the end of October. Which means, of course, that they are in flower now!
So today I got on my bike to ride around our neighbourhood and took photos of the most beautiful jacaranda trees. And when I had to pick up my son from gymnastics I made a detour to snap even more jacarandas :-). Here are a few pics for you to enjoy!
