When I found one roll of vintage wallpaper that now lives on the back wall in the shop, I had no idea it was a from a famous German designer of the 70's Graziela Preiser.
What attracted me was the simple, bright colourful repeat pattern that evoked a happiness and reminder of my childhood. Though I knew it was probably from the 70's, I still really liked it and thought it looked quite modern (..in a vintage kinda way!). The design and colours have become a part of the shop and so many of our customers smile and reminisce about seeing the design in bed linen, kitchen curtains, preschool as a child.
Graziela's daughter has recently re-released a few of her designs and we are fortunate enough to stock a few of the styles! We have posters, crockery sets (that are a just divine), the cutest softest hooded towels and in a month's time, single bed sets!
All online now and instore - woohoo! xx
ps. single beds sets will be available in the original hearts design (2 colours), farmyard and trains (as above).

As a kid I always had my head in a book, I loved reading. but i also kind felt a little nerdy too, a secret i kept from my friends at school.
Yesterday I took the kids to Manly for a play at Queenscliffe and met up with my sister and kiddies who live on the Northern Beaches. Afterwards we had a great lunch at North Steyne Emporium and then afterwards I couldnt go past having a quick squizz at Neck of the Woods, one of my favourite shops in Manly. In the window was this mug that just had to come home with me.
Made from 100% corn plastic, its just the cutest mug! The question i now have is am I being spoilt if i keep it for myself or should I do the right thing and give it to my husband as his birthday is coming up? He would find it very amusing too I think...
It looks so right too next to our home phone too!
