A discovery

a drive to Culburra Beach and this is what i found along the way....

a beautiful shop called One Wise Owl that sells all things organic, handmade or fairtrade.

The styling was inspiring and product unique, from food, fairtrade coffee, fashion to their very own cleaning products; well worth a visit, especially with Christmas so close. One Wise Owl - 719 Greenwell Point Road, Jindyandy Mill, PYREE

Recettes de Mamans a Paris

Today a customer asked why are we selling a cook book that is written in French and Japanese?

.... and the reason is that it's from a series of books published by small Japanese publisher Paumes. Know these books? They are fabulous! This title Recettes de Mamans a Paris is packed with secret family recipes from creative French mothers, and a sweet glimpse into their kitchens. It's in full colour and each recipe has a great visual of all the if you understand a little of either language - your fine!

..... so that's the reason! Online and instore now

new summer pj's..

Now that baby H is ONE, I thought he deserved 'big boy' pjamas that are his very own...not hand me downs from big brother! So when Snugglebum arrived instore, I just couldn't resist buying each H a pair.

1st day and spotless.... didn't last of course... but the quality of snugglebum is excellent and will look as good as new after many a soak this summer!

Instore now xx

Carefully handpicked stallholders bring the most divine and original clothing, accessories, homewares and toys for the little ones. It’s a shopper’s heaven for those who want to stylishly dress their children or decorate their kids’ home environment, but don’t want to buy mass produced, chain store items.

With 80 stallholders, great kids entertainment and yummy food this will be a fantastic day out for young & old.

For a sneak preview, have a look at the website. I look forward to seeing you there!

why we love parties

have i mentioned these Sambellina cups and plates before? Besides being super dooper sweet, they are the easiest and (most) practical way to brighten up any party - with a small or large budget. At only $7.00 for a packet of 12, irresistable wouldn't you say?

Lots of colours to choose from and available here
