fine and sunny..

What a great name for a shop and look at those herbs in olive tins - what a fresh window display! This new shop in Mildura is run by sisters Annie and Shell who say 'Mildura is actually a VERY fine & sunny place & we have lots of clear blue sky days..... sounds great hey!'

After meeting the girls I'm convinced the name also reflects their personalities as they are both lovely, sunny, happy souls. Congratulations on the shop Annie and Shell xx

printers trays and creative displays...

Look at this clever display by Sue Bailey who loves printer’s trays – her grandfather bought one for her when she was little and she had her collection of treasured whimsy ornaments in there for years.

Sue recently opened her lovely shop in Richmond Victoria called 'Lily and the Weasel'. A lovely old shop front and stained glass features are just a couple of the appealing characteristics which Sue has mentioned. I'm so excited that hot toffee is now available here and can't wait to visit when next in Melbourne.

If you are in Melbourne why not take a peek inside:

mimmis opens today...

This empty space is now home to mimmis run by Miriam from bubba chenille and is filled with furniture and lovely goodies many of which are handmade. Want to see what the shop looks like now it's occupied? Well you can as it officially opens today at 9am so why not come for a drive to Forest Hill! mimmis is across the road from Caffe Sorella and Cafe 4342 .

My exciting news is that I have been busily moving my studio into mimmis over the past 2 days. I now have a light filled studio out of home - I better get moving and get to work!

home sweet home.

On Monday we returned from two weeks in Japan visiting Ryo's family and our friends. These photos were taken on our last day at Oedo Antique Market - what a treasure trove that was!

Things have already been busy since our return with some exciting changes concerning hot toffee....will reveal more shortly x
