pink and white fairies in film

Luisa Brimble from Serendipity Corner has waved her magic little creative wand again and this time it is over 2 white fairies Marg & (apprehensively) me framed by a hydrangea pink brick wall at the 'Feels Like Home' collaboration shoot. This time using film. Real. Live. Beautiful. Film. Marg & I shot by the gorgeous Eliza Barr. Marg is wearing Gorman.


Film camera: Canon EOS-3 // Film: Kodak Portra 400 & Kodak Ektar 100.

a loving party of floral friends by Aleksandra

These are hands-down the most INCREDIBLE flowers I have ever seen by Sydney florist, styler & handwriter Aleksandra (watch out Aleks, I might just be your biggest fan/stalker). They are gobsmackingly, heart-achingly, breathtakingly beautiful. They look like they have been collected from a garden and lovingly gathered together with such a subtle and soft sense of structure. It's so lovely to see a haphazard collection of flowers doing what flowers do best. Every blossom and bloom is celebrated by its neighbour. Hydrangea says to Peony "man, you are beautiful at the best of times but you look are looking damn fine standing there next to me". It is a loving party of floral friends and I wish I was amongst it. Gorgeous stuff. Stalk to be continued....

a bit more weekend fun with flowers

Lovely little Peonies, Roses (with a special hint of David Austins), Sea holly, Dahlias & Dusty Miller in a HUGE bouquet I did for the lovely Kat (& her 4 girls) for her wedding on Friday. Somehow between the rain the sun came out and shone brightly down on her for her special day.

Feels Like Home collaboration shoot

Yesterday, in a beautiful 1960s house surrounded by a lovingly tended native garden and veggie patch complete with chooks, rabbit and 2 little dogs and the most generous, talented and creative team we shot 3 exceptionally gorgeous young fashion bloggers and ate delicious things. Here is a little sneak peak.

Thanks as always go to the irreplaceable energy of Luisa Brimble of
Serendipity Corner whose creative talent and passion convinces anyone they can do anything.

gardenias & greens

It's not everyday you get to enjoy rocket, basil, parsley & mixed little lettuces freshly picked out of a home grown organic veggie patch. And it's not everyday you get a little bunch of gardenias grown with love to smell while you craft away in your Ma's house.... Today me lucky x

pops of pink

After a parcel from the Cambridge Satchel Co. arrived on my doorstep on a bleak rainy day this week I have become completely OBSESSED with neon pink on me and in my house. Perhaps I'm reverting back to childhood days of wishing I could live in Barbie's house and make out with Ken in between my day jobs being a vet, a doctor, a princess and a queen and always wearing heels. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to live in a fully fledged pink plastic palace but I will have a pop of pink or two about the place please....
