Hop Skip Jump...

I have fallen in love with the unique handmade toys from Adelaide designer Fiona Dalton. I particularly like the wee dress on the doll. I want one in my size! See more loveliness at Hop Skip Jump here.

We are excited to launch our new wall art range at this weeks Magnolia Square Market.

The affordable range including 8 designs are presented in two sizes and perfectly fit into the RIBBA frame from IKEA.

Hanging on a wall or standing on a shelf, our cute and colourful prints will brighten any room at home or work. Printed onto 350gsm recycled (post consumer waste) paper, our prints are designed to make you and our earth feel happy!

Our website will be updated soon so you can also buy them online and support Cure4CF, or come see me at the Magnolia Square Market this week for a sneak preview.

Great Market Buys

Ok here is a run down of the gorgeous products purchased at the recent Bowerbird Bazaar...

Yes I was tempted again by Delilah Devines gorgeous wood cut jewelery but this time I was sold on her spin on the classic flying ducks to hang on the wall. I ended up buying the yellow wallpaper set and I'm currently pondering the perfect place for them in my new studio.

My hubby Denis gave me one of these gorgeous ceramic rings from Klei a designer from Melbourne. Klei will be at this weeks Magnolia Square if you are interested in seeing the entire range in the real!

From Scratch Patisserie was one of my favourite Adelaide stalls. Check out these colourful Macaroons packaged in a cute egg carton tied with twine. Yummy!

Market Success...

The Bowerbird Bazaar was definitely the place to be on the 26-28th March. Word has it that 6000 people came to see what all the hype was all about over the 3 days. A huge increase in numbers since October's launch. Great to see Adelaide getting behind the design market scene.

We had so much fun hanging out, and I was very good to not spend too much money... it was very hard though coz there were so many cool products up for grabs.

Thanks to my sisters Lynne and Susan for helping me over the weekend and for keeping me company. Also Denis, I think you broke your own personal record by taking over 3000 photos in one day. (Pics above courtesy of Denis Smith Photography).

Last but not least a big thanks to Jane and Rebekah for organising such a slick event, one that we all love. Looking forward to the next Bowerbird in October.

I see red...

Situated in the middle of a vineyard,  Red Poles is the ideal location to spend a casual lunch, a lazy afternoon or a short holiday. Red Poles is a café, restaurant, gallery, B&B, and wedding / function venue situated on the tourist drive in McLaren Vale - “The perfect mix of food, wine and art”.

The business offers the best in local produce in its café, and chef Nat Wilson is held in high regard in the region – with his seasonal menus and a range of local wines for which the region is famous.

An art gallery offers a new exhibition every six weeks and artists are also given the opportunity to hang work on consignment. There are weekly and weekend art workshops in a wide variety of mediums. Visitors can be “hands on” in creative activities or observe others in their artistic endeavours.

Including live music every Sunday, Red Poles is a Sunday afternoon destination for sure. Monthly cabarets and an outdoor cinema/theatre complete the picture.
