Emily Loizeau - L'autre Bout Du Monde

This is keeping me company while I sew sew sew...three of my tea cosies are going to be on show at the Decoration + Design Trade Fair in Sydney on the 4th, 5th and 6th of February and I need all the musical help I can get to help me get everything ready!

The song title: The other side of the World, and the lyrics are so funny and's really almost an anthem for living so far away from so much I love, even though I live with the other half of what I love! The balance is crucial...


On dit qu'il y fait toujours beau
C'est là que migrent les oiseaux
On dit ça
De l'autre bout du monde

J'avance seule dans le brouillard
C'est décidé ça y est, je pars
Je m'en vais
À l'autre bout du monde

L'autre bout du monde {x2}

J'arrive sur les berges d'une rivière
Une voix m'appelle puis se perd
C'est ta voix
À l'autre bout du monde

Ta voix qui me dit mon trésor
Tout ce temps, je n'étais pas mort
Je vivais
À l'autre bout du monde

L'autre bout du monde {x2}

Sur la rivière il pleut de l'or
Entre mes bras je serre ton corps
Tu es là
À l'autre bout du monde

Je te rejoins quand je m'endors
Mais je veux te revoir encore
Où est il
L'autre bout du monde ?

L'autre bout du monde {x3}

Whitnail &. I: In the tea rooms

This is on of my all-time favourite films with Richard E Grant and Paul McGann.

**This film exerpt does have a language warning, if you're not a fan of the F*** word, then please refrain from watching this.

It is one of the most poignant tragic-comic British films, a real cult classic!
Thanks for the link Dianna!

Foxy Koala Cosy by Brigette Cameron

This amazing tea cosy, made by a artist friend of mine, Brigette Cameron, who lives in Melbourne, and who I met in the north of Sweden when we both worked at the Ice Hotel in 2005-2006.

I thought would be the perfect starting image for 2009, and an Australian summer!

I dont have all the details about the cosy, which is very lax of me (summer holiday mood!), though I think Brigette made the cosy in 2005, and it was in an exhibition of tea cosies held in Canberra...I'll have to ask her again!

Brigette is a knitter extra-ordinaire!
