Shop Love

This is The Society inc. Situated  in Sydney's Paddington in a 1860’s terrace house.

It is an 'old habidashery meets hardware store specialising in local and global textiles, furniture, homewares and beautiful things' and is the retail baby of the fabulously talented interior stylist Sibella Court.

I'd anticipate there is hours of browsing possible in this bower of a store.  Tomorrow I'll show you her home upstairs - it's worth the wait!

I've just stumbled across this photo from CHALK 's old blog and it has almost inspired me to start producing some more.  I absolutely love putting the quilt tops together but I start to lose interest when it comes time to sew them all up.  I must admit that seeing these old designs and matching pillows gets me a little excited and I think I can feel some 'crafting' coming on!

Open Fires


One of the sticking points that Surfer Boy and I have in regard to our extension is an open fireplace.  I am a firm believer that an open fire is a necessity to a home whereas my 'green' husband quite rightly complains of their ferocious appetites for timber and their inherent mess. 
I know he is right and I am aware that the open fire place is by it's very nature, outdated in our modern homes - but I still want one!
Surely no home is complete without a hearth to gather around? 

Looks like I'll need to do some research to find an alternative that lets me have the romanticism of the open fire without the drawbacks.  Any suggestions?

Wednesday Wedding (on the wrong day!!)

I know it's not Wednesday but I absolutely LOVE this wedding. 
A rainy day wedding could have been a disaster but the couple embraced the weather and as a result the photos are amazing. 

Check out Braedon Photography to see more pictures of this lovely wedding.

If you need to make some cards for anything from babies to birthdays try the Playday collection! Sherri Thompson made this charming baby card with Club SEI's September mini kit.

Remember Elaine Teo? Here are several birthday cards she made with Playday.

Thanks so much for sharing your projects. Keep them coming. We love it!

Living Rooms To Live In

I've seen a lot of homes lately that are fairly cookie-cutter and don't tell you much about the people who live there.  This is one of my pet peeves so I get very excited when I see houses that reflect the personalities of their owners.  Even if the style is very different to mine, it gives me such a thrill to see people express themselves through their interiors.

Wednesday Wedding - Desert Delight

It's a wedding but what I love about it is it could easily be a dinner or a long lazy lunch - in a change of pace to previous Wednesday Weddings, this one is takes place in the desert and would not look out of place in the Australian outback - in fact I may just go off on a hunt for an outback wedding... stay tuned.
