Out and about

A couple of weeks ago we ventured out of Bendigo for the weekend to attend an exhibition in Melbourne. It was Jades first big weekend away and traveling in the car. She did very well and it has given us the confidence to get out and about a bit more with her.

The exhibition was the graduation work of students completing a three year part time course in textile design out at Box Hill. The work included some stunning pieces by my very clever sister. I found it hard to edit the images so I've just included them all!

I'd love to hang these mobiles in my house, but I think I'm going to have to fight for them as I'm not the only one who wants them!

Look at the detail!

These are also part of her collection. The door is my favourite... oh and the gate!

Love this splash of colour in the butterfly.

I can't wait to see what you do next Jo and I'd love to get you do create some work for Jade's nursery. I bet I'm not the only one who'd love to commission your work! Good luck with whatever comes next for you. x

Beautiful gifts

Two weeks before we told our parents we were expecting a baby, my Mum finalised a trip to Europe with her sister. It turned out that the trip would take place two weeks after our due date. Poor Mum! So two weeks after Jade arrived, Nanna was off to Europe! I know it was tough for her to be away with a new baby in the family, but she called us every week and found some gorgeous gifts for Jade in my favourite city - PARIS!

She knows my taste so well! I can't wait to frame some of these cards for the nursery wall. The round cards are by an illustrator called Anne-Isabelle Le Touze and the post cards are by an illustrator called Corinne Bittler. I LOVE Corrinne's art. Mum could not decide which cards to buy so she bought the whole range! I just love them!

I can't wait for her to fit into these! I wish they made grown up sizes in tshirts - I'd wear them for sure! In the meantime I might frame them or hang them on display in her nursery!

Check out this bag and the cute little toys! What a lucky girl!

And I could not resist adding a Jade pic to sign off with - too cute, hey?
