deco deco

It has been too long since my last post, I have been quite preoccupied with the winter colds that have been rotating through the family.  It as been quite frustrating as I have been having so many great design ideas but not the time to put any of them into action.  

I have been getting quite inspired by the Art Deco movement again, it is a theme that has been running through my life as a designer.  The use of colour and pattern really appeals to me.

Vixen I love thee

It has been a very busy two weeks with lots of industry events; Benjamin and my wedding anniversary complete with a lovely stay in the city and then topped off with the little ones head lice fiasco.  
I did pend a lovely evening catching up with the lovely girls at Vixen last Friday night. I could not help to take a few pics as the store is looking as lovely as always.    

love the wooden printing block, silk spool and coral display

Little Rose was so adorable making suggestions of Vixen pieces we should try on!
 If you haven't done so already you must make the trip out to Gertrude Street - my favourite shopping destination.
