A picnic for Grace

Our super cute friend Grace had one of our picnics for her 30th birthday last weekend at Strickland House in Vaucluse and it was gorgeous. Here are a few snaps taken by the fabulous Claire!

The Ashes Picnics

Simon and I are really excited that we have been given the chance to make our hampers for The Ashes this year in the members area of the Sydney Cricket Ground. We are making 3 picnics and this weekend, our lovely friend and brilliant photographer, Greta, shot the picnics for us. Let the fun begin!

I just came across this lovely site, and LOVE these cute little mix tape brooches made from re-cycled book covers & buttons.

Would also love to get my mits on one of these recycled stationery sets - all my favourite colours rolled into one lovely, happy bundle!

How to sew a vintage bikini

This is soooo cute! I have a feeling that it might be a little out of my league on the needle craft front, but I'm going to give it a shot! I remember having a sweet cotton bikini as child... it always fell down when I went in the water. I think I'll stay on dry land when I've crafted this one! Pics to follow once I've made it!
