The Simple Life!

There is something to be said about the simple life. With a world full of political turmoil and financial collapse its nice just to go the beach and share a day with friends, play scrabble, fish(my lovely friends daughter caught the fish), sing to the music and just enjoy life away from all the drama and glitz and glamour. Well that was my Sunday which was fabulous I hope you have a great week ahead. Happy Monday x

Project Day : Bunny Lamps

How cute are these lamps? I covered the shades of some ceramic bunny lamps this week. They are finished now and I am ever so pleased with them. I used Ozbourne Village Blue fabric and some white pom pom fringe. I was first thinking of these for a children's room but now I am thinking of myself. I can't resist those ears!
Have a great weekend.

Project Day: Studio Curtain

A busy week. We had some special visitors from a national magazine. We cannot reveal anything yet, but we will soon. V Exciting.
So we had to make a special curtain for the occasion!
Using the patchwork method we sewed a whole heap of our fabric (in pre-cut squares) together.
Then some floral opened edged lace trim from an op shop in Mullumbimby came in handy for the top encasement for the curtain rod. Easy peasy.
After a few hems & pressing it was done.

Don't forget today is the last day for 20% off new arrival fabrics in our webstore.
Happy Weekend.
