The Gallop to Christmas!

I have been up & down the ladder
 for a week to get our
'Lampshade' Christmas Tree rigged up!
SO hard to photograph...
So you'll just have to come in to see it!
We're having a lovely time
hanging our exquisite glass ornaments!

Just Add Ice

Cup Day prep...

 ..& ice!

Giddy Up

It's Melbourne Cup Day!
We will be closed briefly..
between 1:30pm & 2:30 pm

Hand Made Beauty

Always on the hunt for unique pieces made by hand..
these beautiful Earrings caught our eye!
Nicki Hall is a local, who incredibly,
 has taken one of her own photographic images of
Australian Native Blossoms
and etched it onto clear Perspex droplets.
What has resulted is an exquisite pair of Earrings!
The perfect international gift
or for you...
..just because you love them..
..like a local...shop local...support hand made..

Just as Mr G says on Page 19 of A Place Called Home..

..who needs to go away for inspiration
when Brisbane puts on
days like these!

And if you have never been to
 our neck of the woods..
Pop in

Time for Easter

Ahhhh! The Easter Break is just around the corner!
Aren't we lucky to get such a long weekend
to take a breather from the 'busyness'
of the New Year?!
Hopefully with some glorious weather too!
Our shop is full to the brim with Easter treats that aren't necessarily of the chocolate variety...
..like these colourful cast iron Bunnies!
The perfect little companions
to hold open a door or,
rustle in amongst some potted herbs on the verandah.
No chance of these fellows nibbling away at the tips!
We will be closed for the Easter Long Weekend
(Good Friday, Easter Saturday, Sunday & Monday)
Open again on Tues 22nd, Wed 23rd & Thurs 24th
then Closed on Friday 25th for Anzac Day..
See you soon..

Sometimes 'new' vases just don't cut the mustard..
Another fascination we have is with
Stoneware vessels from as early as the 1880's.
In a previous life they held Stout, Ginger Beer or Ink..
Now...they're beautiful clustered randomly
showing off a fabulous piece of Australian Native Flora!

Happy You Year!


I resolve to...
What's your new horizon for twenty fourteen?..
Is it to carry that holiday spirit with you all year?..
If your holding a summer soiree this weekend,
David Edmonds collection is sure to brighten up your table..
..with platters that depict sandy shores &
dishes & bowls that portray blue cloudless skies..
They are not only beautiful for serving up dining delights,
also, the unconventional hand made shapes
are wonderful to stack on the side board, table or bench top to display collections from our land of beauties rich & rare...
