Weekend In Pictures


© Kara Rosenlund

Happy Monday! Here we go… Weekend in Pictures…. let’s just say this weekend flew past.. I didn’t get up to my usual cooking or recipe experimenting, or even hanging with the girls bad chicken muma... It was just a ‘Wham Bamm, Thank You Mamm’ kinda of weekend….with lots of loads of clothes washing from our last road trip…. On Saturday I attending my friend Lulu Lucky’s debut calligraphy class at the upstairs studio of Anna Spiro’s shop ‘Black and Spiro’… it was divine…. there was one moment where I swear I felt like I was up in a roof top studio above Paris, in the 5th arrondissement, circa 1940 and all the ear could hear was metal inky calligraphy nibs scratching on heavy weight paper….practising and writing letters to loved ones… while perfecting our kerning along to the musical talent of Edith Piaf ….. what a joy Saturday was….. I came home with my calligraphy tester sheet and shot this image….. let’s just say I’m much better at photography than I am at calligraphy….



Come Sunday morning Timothy O and I had a pot of tea in bed… we never do this….. and how much of a luxury it felt…….


… we discussed my driving route for Monday morning’s today’s road trip down to Melbourne to host my ‘Vignette Class’ with The School….. If you are in Melbourne you should totally come along!


My new friend from Sydney James Gordon and his dog Bob made this amazing paper rose for us while we were there last week…. I am absolutely in love with it…. I found the perfect place to hang it….. he is a paper genius….


I walked into my local secondhand book shop while waiting for my coffee Sunday afternoon and I found this book…. I only just recently discovered this book after staying with a good friends’ mother in Tamworth, enroute to Brisbane last week….. (more to come of this story soon)…. am in love with this book G.E. xx

Late Sunday afternoon I built up this pretty vignette…… I drew upon my pressing road trip for inspiration…. I can’t tell you how exited I am to get back out onto the open road and witness all the beautiful colours and landscape once again! Melbourne I am so exited to meet you all this Thursday and Friday in St Kilda! If you too would like to come along to one of my Vignette workshops you can book here.…. tickets are $120 and I promise you it will be a night filled with inspiration, laughter and joy! The best kind of cocktail.

    • Hi Ness… I really love calligraphy…. it is just so beautiful…. I just think I need to work on my patience a bit! haha xxx

  2. Now I’m just like everybody else, only finding out what you are doing through your blog. I have to say, if I’m honest – it hurts a little. I’m sure I’ll get over it but if not I’ll just have to cry into my Kara Rosenlund tea towel and reminisce about the time I once was friends with a stylist who owned a caravan….boo hoo!

    • Get out Sally O …. hahaha….. cry into that 100% linen testowel….hahaha…. Looking forward to seeing what you have been up to at your ‘Pied a Terre’ at Noosa. xxx Always thinking of you Sally.xx
