Today I would like to tell you about Misfit Isle, which is Alli's blog. She and her husband live way up in the very North of Canada, and are planning to expand their little family (which currently includes an adorable hedgehog, no kidding) by starting to adopt children in the very near future. You can read all about the adoption process and Alli's and Max' hopes and worries here.
These two lovely people also run an online shop going by the same name as the blog, Misfit Isle. They sell fun, inspirational prints, cards and other artsy things designed by the two of them. All the proceeds of any sales will go towards helping them become parents and cover the cost of adoption. Their prints are really cute and would look good on any wall. I have my eyes on the Bruce Springsteen record myself.
Have a look:
Misfit Isle is offering free worldwide shipping at the moment, so if you fancy some new art and want to help somebody realize their dreams, go and check them out!
The Blue Mountains are a less than two-hour drive away from Sydney, and Marco and I made use of a rental car to spend a day in the area. We went for a hike, stopped at several beautiful look-outs and enjoyed seeing some exciting new rock formations, plants and scenery. We also had great Kaffee und Kuchen in Leura and I saw the only slightly scary-looking spider of my whole stay in Australia in a ladies' loo by a parking lot.
