moveable sigh

So we all know I love lists and operate with a greater degree of efficiency and enthusiasm when I have a ‘tick the box’ to do list.  So in that same spirit of  compartmentalising and in attempt to retain the original purpose of ‘measured words’, sigh has moved to here.  Come check it out some time – its place where I indulge, explore and suggest!


‘Sigh’ has had a bit of a facelift in the last day or two.  Which seems a bit excessive considering that ‘sigh’ has only been around for a few weeks.  I am much happier with how it all looks now and am excited about going to market on Sunday.  That’s right – I’m off to market!  This Sunday at the Healesville Market from 9am to 2pm.  Drop in and say ‘hi’.

ice cream roses

My very perceptive 4 year old calls these ‘ice cream roses’.  Which is perfect.  They do have a depth of colour and texture that makes you think of really good ice cream (and in the case above, dark chocolate ice cream!).

I love these little treasures, they are chic and fun.  And come in really great colours, check them out here.

sigh…little treasures


This is a little project I have been working on for a little while (obviously!).  I stumbled across these amazing little things called ‘cabochons” and fell madly in love with them.  They are sweet and delicate and gorgeous.  I wanted to do something with them and earrings seemed the best option.  The little cabochons’ are mostly West German and nearly always vintage.  How lovely they are.

I have been able to source really good quality surgical steel earring posts without nickel ie. won’t bother those of us with sensitive ears!  The cabochons themselves are from a couple of lovely suppliers in the States who keep sending me gorgeous vintage glass and vintage cabochons for me to sigh and swoon over.  I adore them and have started wearing earrings again for the first time in about 8 years.

Honestly, it’s a bit daunting.  I’ve never done anything like this before and therefore it is really an in experiment in the unknown.  But you don’t know unless you try.  So in the spirit of experimentation, check ‘sigh’ out here, and let me know what you think. x
