The Perfect Saturday In Sydney

Today has been the perfect spring day, and so despite having a few things we really should have been working on indoors we decided to head over to Rozelle and Balmain for the Saturday markets…

It’s true, I love Balmain & Rozelle {so I couldn’t resist the opportunity to take this snap} aside from browsing in great shops like Quintessentially Duckegg Blue and an excuse for a sweet treat from Adriano Zumbo the Saturday in market in Rozelle is the perfect place to search for treasures.  Aware that within the next month or so we’ll be packing up our Sydney apartment I was reserved and only came away with a few bits that can be easily tucked into  my suitcase…

even the trees in Rozelle are trendy! and I picked up almost 4metres of this cute mini floral print fabric…I’m thinking it might be useful for the wedding {my first wedding purchase!}

Talking of wedding purchases I guess technically it’s the second because as we speak, back in the UK my mum, dad & brother are currently driving around the English countryside collecting 56 vintage chapel chairs that Simon’s purchased for the wedding {thanks family!}

I couldn’t help but treat myself to some Ranunculus just because I was feeling so Spring like , they’re currently brightening up my bedside table. Hope you’ve had / are having a lovely Saturday in your part of the world. x

I Love Friday’s

… and this super cute ribbon spool heart from House Doctor, Happy Friday everyone!

Table Settings {Part II}

So following on from yesterdays post here are the rest of the shots from this months Table Settings feature for House & Garden, shot by the lovely Maree Homer and Flowers from Flowers By Teresa…

It was such a dream shoot and even though the heavens decided to open while shooting our outdoor garden party!

Table Settings {House & Garden Shoot}

One of the things I love most about being a Freelance Stylist  is the variety. One minute I’m sourcing thrifty buys for quick, easy to achieve bathroom updates and the next I’m creating four glorious tables for a Spring time dining feature … and here’s the outcome. For this months House & Garden I was lucky enough to get the fabulous Diana and Josie from Flowers By Teresa on board to help my vision become a realitiy…{I’m doing a two parter again I’m afraid my friends. Still not sorted the “too many images in one post” issue!}
