Tea Towels for Sale at Mondocherry's Store

Wouldn't it be nice to own your own shop?
Oh how much fun that would be!

The next best thing is to know a friend who owns one, and a beautiful one at that.

3 Claremont Ave
Malvern, VIC

 I find myself stopping by there a lot lately.
I love all the colours and their beautiful handmade products.
They are just divine, and it is truly an individual and unique store.
They design all their own fabrics, make lovely little things by hand, but also help out other Australian designers.

 Now, I am not a designer, but I do enjoy making things by hand.  Joy asked me to make some linen tea towels up for the shop in similar colours to their displays.  Here are some on display in her amazing little shop!

A bit of Neon and some pastel colours should do the trick.

The black and white Melbourne one was the first to sell.
So fun!

Love the mint green!

A great place to begin your x-mas shopping!!!!

Cane Couch from bla to Oh La La

Lately there have been heaps of magazines showing beautiful cane and wicker furniture painted in all fun and bright colours.  I was so excited when a friend spotted this on the side of the road and she knew I would want it.  I wasn't game to paint it a bright colour so I decided a gloss white finish would be lovely.

after about 3 cans of spray paint....
slowly getting there.
It took a lot more paint than I thought. 

while I was at it I painted the little white table as well.

All finished.
I just love it and can't wait to get some fun outdoor cushions made up.
Now can someone please bring on Summer!

Fimo Bead Fun

Cleo's choice of beads.  Nice combo.

I remember making Fimo clay beads back in the 90's, but of a much more complex manor.
 Who knew that less is more?  Recently I have seen some lovely Fimo bead necklaces around Melbourne.  There are a few different designers doing them, but I couldn't help myself. 
 I had to give it a go.

With these simple little coloured beads, the lovely combinations are endless.  

Warning! It is slightly addictive too.

Kayla was so excited to make her own!
