Xmas Markets

I'm very exciting to be included on the ex student table at the Harvest Xmas market!

And at Modern Times

 Come along if you can! 

I'm still ridiculously excited!

Little Red

 Here is a recently commissioned Mini Modern Macrame in its new home.  
Tes asked for a red one and I think I fulfilled the brief, pretty well! 
Big thanks to Tes for sharing her pic's with me.

This little Piggy is going to market!

 This is very exciting news, my Mini Modern Macrame's are going to market! ...not one but two Christmas markets in Melbourne, this December!
I will post more details soon but here are some pics of my recent knotting extravaganza!

 I had a collection of wooden bangles which I no longer wear, they make great hangers!

 Do you like my recent addition of felted balls? gone are the wooden beads from the seventies...actually I love the beads but couldn't source ones I like and I always aim to use what I can find. 
I found my collection of felt balls and I think I put them to good use!
 All the succulents are home grown and have made happy homes in their new vessels...gotta love the air plants too...don't get me excited about air plants.... I could talk for hours!
If you haven't guessed already, I'm a bit over the moon for this new venture, thanks for looking and wish me luck! :)

G Plan

 I'm a chair addict but when these G plan nest of tables came up on eBay...I had to have!

As soon as it was delivered I flicked through my 
G plan book and I wanted to share.

G plan was made in the UK by High Wycombe,  designed by Donald Gomme.
It was the furniture for everyday people, for all budgets. I remember my parents and grandparents had some G plan in their homes.

If you want to see more British Mid Century furniture and decor see the 'Made in Dagenham" film, good flick but the set's are amazing!

I love fresh flowers

The G plan bible

Would love a ladderax system in my home.

Beautiful illustration
Comfy chair..yes please.

More great illustrations.

This is the closest piece of furniture I could find in the book, that matched mine!

 Santa is coming....

I'm thinking of Christmas already.... a reason to style and decorate, this years theme could be colour and folk Boho
