Strawberries

Late winter has seen an abundance of strawberries, they are so yummy.

I think a strawberry tart may be on on the menu!

The “strawberry” lettering, calligraphy, is my work, painted freehand with a brush and water colours.

Much of my inspiration comes from the ephemera I have collected over the years.

I have a wonderful collection of French antique button cards and display

many of the prized ones in a vintage French lantern box  and a set of old desk drawers

together with an assortment of vintage lace, wooden spools, vintage and antique sewing ephemera.

A visit to The Society Inc Paddington

Having enjoyed reading some of the beautiful inspiring books by stylist Sibella Court

we decided to visit her wonderful terrace house shop in Paddington, Sydney, this weekend.

Set on the corner of a peaceful, leafy inner city street, with it’s double display windows

the shop instantly inspired the bower bird in me…
