Curiosity killed the cat, but it will make you buy a book that you had no idea what the title is.
Elizabeth’s Bookshops has invented this wonderful, quirky way to sell books in a world that has stopped buying them.
Take books from the shelf, wrap them in brown paper, write a list of what the key ingredients are in them, tie them with string,
and wait for the irresistible pull of curiosity.
It apparently works a treat.
Elizabeth’s Bookshops: 845 Hay Street (cnr. King Street) Perth and 257 Kings Street, Newtown, Sydney.

When times are tough and money is short, but life keeps coming,
the need to be innovative in problem solving kicks in big time,
and these images speak to exactly that.
The use of old metal barrels, that would have been used on the farm or country property,
often sitting discarded when empty, and becoming an eyesore,
cut and then flattened to cover the outside of the farm buildings is a wonderful idea.

Every Summer tea towels that have been collected from a diverse range of markets, and second hand stores throughout the year are dragged out
and placed in a pile on the work table.
Cushions, and pillows that are in desperate need of a refresh are assembled.
Interesting buttons, fringing, scraps of other fabrics are also placed near by.
The TV is turned on, the tennis begins and so does the sewing.At the end of it all, a tennis champion is crowned, and a selection of wonderful cushions and pillows inhabit our outdoor and indoor living spaces,
ready for another Summer’s entertaining. Such joy!
