Thought I would check in with a quick little post. I’m still here in beautiful Tasmania; shooting interiors for the project I’m working on and loving every second… one thing I can’t believe is how hot is has been… move over Queensland, hellllloo ‘Sunshine State’ Tasmania…. so much so I had to nip out to buy some new sleeveless tops seriously… and I now have a ‘truckers arm‘ suntan on my drivers arm… autumn you are crazy!
AH, Zaza… a lot of people have been wondering what ended up happening with the little lost chicken I found a few weeks back which I called Zaza perhaps Tina Turner would of been more appropriate with her feathers. Click here if you misses the tale.
Well, after the social media frenzy on Facebook and instagram and here on the blog, the husband Timothy O printed out old school posters and stuck them to lamp posts in the area where I found Zaza…. still nothing… then the local paper called up to do an interview about the lost chicken ohmy, I felt a little embarrassed about that… though still nothing…
Then after a few days of the article going out we heard. Zaza’s parents were found and she was reunited with her folks and chicken sisters….. what a tale….
Thank you to all those who helped spread the word!
I’m currently banging this post out in my hotel room in Hobart… I quickly dashed back from Tasmania to the Sunshine Coast last week to style a beautiful clients wedding. I couldn’t wait to share these quick shots with you from the weekend at Yandina Station on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
Because I love circles so much I came up with this idea to have an oversized wreath behind the bride and groom…. both as a symbol of love and also as a floral eye catcher….
… … I asked Twig and Grace to create this incredible feast for the eyes…. roses, hydrangeas, magnolia leaf, pepper berry …. the list goes on…. so many beautiful floral fragrant notes in one room… very heady indeed….
… lots of personal touches were added everywhere throughout the ceremony and reception, like these name banners by Lulu Lucky to make every guest, both family and friend, feel very special and loved….
Tasmania… I’m coming down for a visit… a rather long visit actually… one of those visits where you only book a one way flight and you come home when your work is done….gulp…. I’m visitng Tasmania for two reasons. One is for tomorrow evening’s ‘Vignette Class’ with The School at The Drill Hall in New Norfolk, where I am sharing all my knowledge on how I throw my bits together to create beautiful vignettes…. the second reason is to find authentic Australian interiors for a project I’m working on… oyster shacks, lighthouses, cottages, ruins… the list keeps going – if you know anyone who you think I should get in touch with I would love to hear about them. Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m off to air out the winter woolies and layers for the trip… on a very sticky and humid Queensland sunny day!
Ah, Saturday, you were grand… we had the February Fete with ceramist Kylie of Paper Boat Press at her shop/gallery over at Ashgrove, Brisbane…. my gosh, was it a crazy busy day… these lovely shots on the blog were actually not captured by me this time I was a little busy wrapping and packing and hanging out with lovely customers… they were shot by the talented Ashley Oostdyck - thank you Ash x
… a few weeks ago while chatting over a glass or three of red wine Kylie and I decided we should do something together, a collaboration of sorts; we came up with a ‘february fete’, where I bring my caravan Frankie over to her studio/shop and we ‘bang out our wares’ so to speak; my old wares and Kylie’s handmade ceramics; we put it out there through our social media avenues and come Saturday morning we both really didn’t know how it was going to pan out…. eeeekk
… let’s just say that the power of local community is where it is at…. Ashgrove – who would of thought! We were both so overwhelmed by everyone who came out to see us and to take part in the little suburban fete….it felt like a really good party… seriously and I have been to a lot of parties in my time….there were so many familiar faces and so many new faces too….. lots of laughter, music and excitement…the buzzing corner block literally went off…
…. thank you so much to all who came out to see us… we are going to plan another one for later in the year…it really was that much fun …. sometimes good things do come from having a few too many glasses of wine with friends….
