hello Markit

If you are in Melbourne and seeking something fun to do today why not head into the Atrium & BMW Edge Theatre, Federation Square and visit Markit. There is a fantastic line up of designers and always an electric atmosphere with the buzz of people. Hot Toffee will be there with my brother Shannon holding the forte today. He has been my helper at Markit in the past and is kindly running the show for me today. He will be selling my gift cards, hairpins, cuff links, lapel pins, studs in every colour, drops, wind chime earrings, bird garlands and our pretty colour clusters on chains or hand plaited cord. Our stall is still in the Atrium but in a different spot to where we've been in the past. We are between Porcelain Bear and Pleatybunny by Miss FOO a few stands up from LoveHate.

For those of you who can't make it to Markit but do feel like a spot of shopping simply enter 'helloMarkit' at checkout to receive 20%* off the total of your order (excluding shipping).
Shop here.
*This offer is only valid on items in the hot toffee etsy store Sunday May 27 from 10am - 5pm.

Moonscape Wedding...

Nicole Moon from Moonscape Garden Designs recently purchased some of our bird garlands. I was delighted to open an email from her yesterday evening with these images of how she used the garlands in her Wedding.
above as details on her wedding shoes -  and look at all that pretty confetti!
I adore this photograph x

wrapped around Nicole's beautiful bouquet

detail of bouquet - pretty!

The photos were taken by Nicole's friend Brett Squires.
The top photo was taken with a Lomo camera hence the saturated colours. I love it!

Nicole is in the process of having her website built for her Garden Design business so once it's live I will share the link here on my blog.

Do you have any photos of our garlands in use? If so I would love to share them here xo
Simply email me here with the details.

I have been cleaning out my studio and have come across loads of little containers and boxes containing beads, cords and some older stock which includes samples as well as items I don't make any more in that particular style, colour, size or shape.  Over the next few weeks I will be photographing these and adding them to my etsy store in the SALE section. Some of the beads and cords I have discovered are lovely and have been waiting quietly to be made into some simple pendants so I will let you know when I do so.
