Sunrise Sunset

I had a fabulous weekend. I wondered how I was going to sum it up on the blog this morning.
 I decided on using two words and two pictures (which I snapped over the weekend, love my iphone). 
And they are: Sunrise, Sunset. 
Hope that gives you an idea of what I got up to.
Happy Monday.
Simone xx
PS: Yes, the second photo is sunset! I am not that bad.

Project Day: Customer Creations

It's Friday again which means customer creations time.
Can you believe Elisha found these chairs on the side of the road ready for the dump!
She rescued them, got online with us and purchased some Waverly Ellis fabric in turquoise.
What a fantastic result.

And secondly Lynette from FANON Design covered a lamp in our famous Cockatoo fabric, and she selected Turquoise as well.
The lamp is for sale in their store if you want to check it out HERE.

If you have sent in your creation and it hasn't been published yet don't worry, it will. We have so many to get through so your patience would be well appreciated.

Have a great weekend and keep creating!

Simone & Jody.

Room Please?

Spare room. I know you are out there. Please make yourself known. The fabric studio is full upstairs so now we resort to storing new arrivals downstairs. 
Help me Rhonda! 
Over 100 rolls of oilcloth arrived this week and we are trying to squeeze them all in! Hope your week is going along nicely. xx

Out my Front Window

It seems to becoming more frequent. I keep witnessing animal spectacles out my front window.
Remember my Pelican morning?
On the weekend my neighbours were away.
I heard some noises early one morning and came downstairs to see a group of Cockatoo's eating up their passion fruit vine. 
They have put many hours into this plant. It is thriving.
I should have "shooed" them away I guess.
But it was too entertaining at the time.
Happy Monday.

Project Day - My Fabric Creations

Customer Creations are all about me instead of a customer today as I have moved and am playing around with fabrics and cushions, I am sure they will change but here are a couple of photos of day 1.

I covered my outdoor couch cushions with our outdoor fabric richloom solarium in black and trimmed the edges with corded fabric edged piping. The cushions are gotcha in candy pink and ebony dots on black. 

The green cushion that I absolutely adore on the pink chair is houndstooth chartreuse.  

Have a fabulous weekend everyone and please keep sending your customer creations in !

~ Introducing Missy ~

Yes our lives were going along quite nicely in the "dog" department.
 We only have one furry family member left and he is 15 years old , so my husband and I were looking toward some "dog free" time. Maybe just a few years?
Funny how fate comes along and changes your plans.
Due to requests, here is a photo of our newset family member "Missy".
She is a 12 month old Labrador.
A neighbour across the street no longer wanted her as she was "too much".
 "Did we want her"?
I swear no matter where I go, what I do - troubled animals always head my way.
There goes another 12 years!
Happy Monday.
Simone. xx
Note: Every year thousands of pets become "unwanted". With dogs it is usually around 12 months of age when they have outgrown their puppy stage and are no longer considered "cute" by some.
I urge everyone to consider the commitment it takes to raise a pet for life.

Project Day: Customer Creations

Mai had some old ottomans that she thought would look great with some new fabric covers.
She bought some Waverly Lovely Lattice fabric from us and went about making them. This fabric is so hardwearing and will take a lot of rough and buff! Mai even said the fabric repels water very well. That's great to hear.
We think they look fantastic. 
Of course being the talented girl she is, she also whipped up some ruffle cushions for her daughters room as well.
Unfortunately we have sold out of all our ruffle trims and the fabrics she selected for the cushions. More coming!

Congrats Mai, you will receive a $10 voucher to use online.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Navy and Orange Yes or No?

I absolutely love the look of navy and and orange together and am keen to put it in one of the rooms in my new house.

I am going to use some zig zag chevron in orange and navy from our clearance section.

However it is very bold and not everyone is a fan are you?

I think you just may be converted after seeing these gorgeous photos from Pinterest. 

Happy Monday Jody x x x

Project Day: Customer Creations

Today we take a look at how you can create your very own unique one of a kind tablecloth for your next special occasion. This is exactly what Charlotte did for her recent get together. She purchased some Heavyweight Navy Stripe Cotton Fabric and hemmed it with some Pom Pom Trim in pink! Loving this combination.
Thanks Charlotte. We will send you a $10 voucher to spend online in our store via email shortly.
We are overwhelmed with all the submissions we receive every week. Thank-you and keep them coming in.
Have a great weekend.

An indecisive Libran

WOO HOO at long last I am finally moving into my new house! 
Now to decide on the cushions. And deciding is a big problem. Yes I know it sounds silly and there are much more important things in the world than my cushions and I am fully aware of that but here are some pictures of me trying to figure out the cushions I am going to have made. 
I really needed Simone to help me as my Libran indecision was not good today, although two Librans together could be worse I suppose.... 

Stay tuned for house pictures coming soon, and I will sneak in some cushion shots I promise
Have a great Wednesday. Jody x x x

What a Way to Start my Day

I have been getting up early lately. After deciding to take on an unwanted dog from a neighbour I have been attending to her in the early hours of the morning when she wakes. This morning was so cold I was wondering how on earth I was going to get out of bed! When I came down the stairs to see Missy (our new  12month old Labrador/family member) I looked out the window and saw this.
 A large flock of Pelicans. In the 4 years I have lived here I have never seen so many altogether.
Wow, how lucky I am to be able to see such a wonderful thing as this.
Happy Monday. Simone.
