The first thing that’s got us all abuzz is that beautiful floral cover by Blue Mountains-based lass Edith Rewa. It’s plastered with some of our favourite native blooms (and you’ll find fascinating facts about them inside the issue). Also making our hearts skip a beat: loads of snuggly linen for your bed; a house full of handmade furniture in Phnom Penh; and a swish-looking collection of vintage hand mirrors. We touch on neighbourly relationships, stepping outside your comfort zone, and learn some (occasionally on-the-nose) 17th-century lingo.
There’s plenty of wisdom to go round as well – from older folks imparting the secret to a happy life to creative types sharing their literary tips. Add to that an ode to specs, a clothing label based in Katherine and plenty of eye-pleasing snaps, and you’ve got yourself a hefty dose of frankie goodness.
