Surprised to see this down pipe and pressed tin sheets that are faux tin and rust painted PVC Tuesday, Sep 30 2014 

William White has developed this product with his Chinese factory and then pulled his product from a huge national distributor because of the hike in their margin take . . . he told me what they demanded. He’s set up a web page, he’s used it on his building in Brunswick Heads and we are going to use both products in our Tasmanian renovation.

The pink • looks like 19th century corrugated tin down pipe . . . but its modern PVc formed and painted to look the part. The * decorative eave is PVC painted in rust finish that really tricks the eye and is so easy to work and so affordable. Go here to view their unfinished web, this info is straight from the horse’s mouth. Contact Wil at <willyandjo@hotmail.com>

Below is their three story building, shop (Fabulous Mrs Fox) and residence in Brunswick Heads, northern NSW. Seriously chic and killing the retail trade down in those trendy parts, search for their Facebook page and go-like . . .

The studio remains intrigued by nature’s small jewellers Tuesday, Sep 16 2014 

Barbara has created pierced ‘lace’ work in wax and developed many versions of this technique for over 20 years now. We are also working on larger sculptural elements for a series of suspended works following this ‘lace’ theme called “new nature” but we remain in awe of this particular caterpillar’s edible art, recently found on Tumblr.

Another ‘thank-you’ card from lovely recent clients Tuesday, Nov 12 2013 

. . . to be filed with their job bag and placed in the commissioner’s year 2013 folder. I have it out typing all the new clients’ details into the database for the ‘jeweller to the lost’ annual report and studio sale notice that we produce every year.

My father ‘Dick’ Enright turns 90 tomorrow and his lunch-time party is at Bindawalla Gardens, Caboolture. Here is the press clipping: Friday, Jan 4 2013 

Yes, his wall clock needed attention, hence the note to remind me to attend to it on Boxing Day. His prowess at the pool table will be challenged but a word of warning – don’t bet on your friends!

O.K. – party pics ( 123456 ) and an update: Ended up being two parties at the same place 12:00 noon for the family and all the kids then after two games of pool with eldest son (malE), all his cronies turned up at 3:00pm and I left at 3:30pm

“poppy’ as he is known to his great grandchildren won both games of pool, it was down to the black first game and I went in off the black and down to the black in the second game, I kept playing it safe and trying to snooker him but he potted that black and so it was two-nil . . . what fun to see Dick in his element!

Two recent studio events that I haven’t posted on until now Friday, Nov 30 2012 

1) Little ‘poppy gonzalez’s first visit to the studio with her Dad (and Barbara).

2) little ron E and his second birthday cake and candles

George Burrow’s 70th birthday party was a fancy-dress party 10 days ago in Hobart, here is our birthday card we sent down Monday, Aug 27 2012 

He has many categories that he collects but we both share a love of ‘mermaids’ so I dug deep into my picture archive to do this poster with my favourite seventy. I’ll save you counting, I kept going a little after seventy because I couldn’t stop.
