Something lurking under my bed...

 Our Easter project... can anyone guess?
 Did anyone say: Super-Gucci flock-lined custom-built shoe storage?

Welcome to your new boutique hotel suite darling shoes. 
We built these 3 wooden trays which slide on felt, to perfectly fit 18 pairs of shoes in style under the bed. Our super easy project began with a visit to Bunnings only 24 hours ago... with $50 of pine and MDF, glue, nails, 2 rolls of adhesive woodgrain film (contact paper!) and 4 sheets of my favourite Christina Re flocked paper, behold...

Is anyone saying: That's just too many shoes?
Well, that's just absurd, that's not the half of them... there's still all these ones which are anticipating equally Gucci accommodation in the next 6 months, stay tuned!

Something for Rachelle Rachelle...

Ever since it was sold at the last Handmade Market, this lamp shade has been coveted by friend and fellow designer of sassy accessories Rachelle, from Prim & Pretty. Finally the planets aligned for a re-make and this time, this gorgeous baby has her name on it. Beautiful!

Do you have something special in mind? Email me and we'll see what we can arrange! xx

Hats and Gloves and a little T&J

The always elegant stylings at the annual Hats and Gloves fundraiser, this year in the theme of black white and yellow, saw my Tango & James Hollywood Trellis fabric making a big splash of colour in the marquee as table runners on all 37 well dressed tables...

Hosted on the grounds of Government House, guests were treated to perfection, all to raise funds for the Malkara School.

Darling, don't they look fabulous? Full credits to my gorgeous friend and designer Barb Fisher who worked tirelessly with the decorating committee, sewing up these babies herself and putting together this amazing space, congratulations!

Oh Joie

A beautiful day to style a Spring fashion shoot for online magazine Joie. Led by incredibly talented photographer Amanda Thorson, joined by Keeley Rees, our beautiful model and Annika De Hoog as photography assistant/chief scene wrangler.

I got the fun job of styling outfits of my T&J label clothes and jewellery, with hats and fascinators by Barb Mickelson. The results... well, you'll have to wait for the finished collection of shots, but for now, a look behind the scenes...

A fun day, great company, and I can't wait to see the beautiful results!
