Entries in shop (97)
I just wanted to say thanks for dropping by each day. This blog has taken me on such a wonderful journey and given me my creative moxy back. So much so I have done something very exciting and a little scary. I have opened a new bricks and mortar store in my home town of Ipswich, Queensland with my good friend Kerrie. Faded Empire, Shop 2, 17 Ellenborough St, Ipswich in fact. A contemporary shop with an old soul. Fashion, furnishings, flowers and of course interiors. I promise there will be pictures to come but we are still tweaking a few things. (What am I saying! The doors are open but the new lighting isn't in. We are still awaiting some stock and the cabinets for the jewellery are in pieces but we are close, very close.) Here are just a few of the flowers I put together for Mother's Day last week. They may be a few days old but I hope you don't mind ;)
The Collector's issue of THE quintessential MAGAZINE is full of the inspiring, the found, the unusual and the beautiful just like the store that gave it birth, quintessential duckeggBLUE. Dinosaur Designs’ Louise Olsen talks about the inspiration behind her new Ocean collection. Überstylist Glen Proebstel captures the magic of heartfelt treasures in New York and author Karen McCartney reveals how a misspent youth in London forged her style. And then there are the collections! Bobbins, bread boards, shoe lasts, potato mashers … how ordinary things can be extraordinary.

(Same little birdie told me that Mr Jason Grant did the styling on these pictures. Cool! What I wouldn't give for a wall of shelves like that!)
