Country Style

Back in September Country Style asked if I would like to come up with some Christmas decorating concepts and style a Christmas story featuring our house. They asked for lots of decorating ideas for the home and tabletop….as you can imagine the request just made my heart sing…. I have never met a table I didn’t want to decorate… I worked with my florist and friend Anneliese Gomez of Hacienda Flowers on the wreaths and floral displays…. I asked Frank Creates to make a beautiful Christmas banner…. My wonderful friend and assistant for the shoot Sally O executed lots of craft and decorating concepts…. Christmas really did come early for Sally O and I…. Pattypan garland, music sheet crackers, monkey fist rope decorations… I asked Lachlan of Flour & Chocolate to make this beautiful cake…. he really is a genius … …He also made this one too…. which Sally O and I modified to include a snowflake… These are natural beeswax name cones which I filled with muscatels … I have made them for years…. they too will be on our Christmas table this year… you should make them … they look super impressive… yet are so so super easy… The ‘How To Make’ guide…. I share all my tips and tricks on how to make the little DIY personal touches for Christmas decorating… that is what makes Christmas special for me.. all the little considered special touches… It is such a beautiful issue, you should put your skates on and buy a copy…. Many thanks to Jared Fowler who shot the beautiful feature and the team at Country Style… plus all the suppliers who loaned gorgeous pieces for the shoot…. K x P.S… and look where I popped up… on the contributors page… Christmas sure did come early…  



Our Travelling Wares was a success on Saturday!!! We sold our beautiful stock to many happy customers who loved their new finds and also loved Frankie! We even had Rick from Frank Creates sign writing on Frankie at the market, which was an added element of interest too. We had so much support from our wonderful friends and family and also our new friends that we met on Saturday. Thank you all so so much. Seeing all your familiar faces bright and early Saturday morning just melted my heart. For all of our new friends you can also find us on Facebook. Thank you and hope to see you at the next market!

Frank Creates Frankie

Its been a very exciting week here getting ready for the market tomorrow, though I think the most exciting chapter has been saved til today! Rick at Frank Creates is signwriting on Frankie as we speak/type. I love Rick’s philosphy when it comes to his craft. Couldn’t believe how lucky I was to find a Traditional Sign writer, ( big thank you to Sally at Studio60) as his vision compliments my own with Frankie. More to share soon!
