A chat with Hay House Radio

Recently, I was blessed to be able to talk with Jennifer Morris from Hay House Radio about my book, The Journey of the Tree.  I thought I would share it with you and wish you all a very happy Winter Solstice. Here is to new beginnings, new hope and healing ! Love to all and thankyou for the support everyone in the online community has showered on me throughout my 'journey'! XOXO

Little Girl Lost - Grandma's little girl dresses.....

Are you familiar with the beautiful impressionist painting "Lost" by Fredrick McCubbin? It is so compelling, yet sad and evocative - the little girl wandering and lost alone in the Australian bush at the turn of last century. McCubbin is brilliant at storytelling through his paintings, and this particular one, as a parent, I find quite touching.
So, being the parent and creative that I am, I decided to have a fun afternoon with my daughter re-creating the feel of "Lost" in the bush where I live, and with a 1950's spin.
My baby doll, dressed in two of her grandmothers 1950's 'best dresses' (arnt they just darling?! Homemade by MY grandmother for my mother) and putting her best play acting face forward, captured the feeling and mood so perfectly.....yes, I am a very proud mummy indeed!
Here they are for all you 50's clothing lovers, and you Australian art lovers, to both enjoy.....

And found !

Ahhh, my little baby doll
