Dinky-Dye Trio

Louisa from Victor Print & Design recently purchased my Dinky-Dye trio. It is so wonderful seeing the prints framed and in their new surroundings. I'm really loving them in the white frames (RIBBA from IKEA), makes the images POP.

So so happy that Louisa wanted to add a touch of retro Australian to her mid-century and industrial styled design studio.

BTW the friendly folk over at Victor Print & Design are currently running a photo competition with some great prizes up for grabs. Check it out >

Happy Birthday to Me!

I'm so excited, Denis gave me a Silhouette SD craft cutter for my birthday on the weekend! I'm really looking forward to playing around with different paper weights and designs, and also working out some unique uses for this crafty toy.

It is basically like a printer that you connect directly to your computer, but instead of printing it cuts different materials including magnet, card, adhesive, and fabric.

Who knows where this experimentation will lead, and what new products might be born. My brain is already filling up with ideas!

Foundabout is born...

After sharing vintage shopping and styling knowledge for 2 years, my friend Mardi and I have decided to extend our long term friendship and love of the 'unique' into a business.

We both have an eye for design, unique styles, and mixing old with new, so merging our talents was the next logical step.

Foundabout is simply a play on words making a suitable name for a shop that sells lovely found items to furnish, decorate and brighten up your self or space. We also appreciate vintage and retro, and products that are fair trade or kind to our earth in production and materials, so Foundabout also touches on the lifecycle of a product.

We both love to find unique items and where possible breathe new life into them. You can't keep us away from op shops, garage sales, anything home made, and even hard rubbish collections. So Foundabout has given us the opportunity to find and revive till our hearts content!

Online store coming soon...

Cutest Stand Ever

I just happened to be positioned right next to the cutest stand ever at the recent Bowerbird Bazaar!

Herbert and Friends had a gorgeous display of rolling green hills and trees finished with softies to die for. My fave was... actually I couldn't pick a favorite, they were all absolutely delightful.

Each cuddly character has their own name and personality profile, i.e. lampshade designer, bongo player in a band, learning dutch and french, taking a Belgian cooking course etc!

Best of all each character is handmade using bamboo felt, cotton fabric and eco-friendly stuffing.
