Pictured with Butterfly artwork on vintage book from Etsy by Faux Kiss which I love and a gorgeous camillia from a lovely old gentleman that lives around the corner from my studio and brings me flowers, lemons and ice-creams in summer. Thanks Les.....

I came across this image on a lovely blog called "Poppy and Leo" created by Caroline in Boston. The photo is taken by Taylor Olcott.
What a beautiful image.....the contrast between the magenta blossom and the red of the barn. I love it.

Ann provided some great insights into the stories behind the fabric designs and told us how she developed the Threads brand, creating 350 fabrics over a two year period, to fill a gap in the market for gorgeous textures and decorative designs, in a more comptemporary design and palette, compared to the rest of the Baker range.
Thanks to Nerida and the team at Elliott Clarke for a great inspirational afternoon with Ann.

After a great lunch at Koukla, comprising of a wood fired pizza to start and pork belly with red cabbage and hazelnut salad, we explored the town and checked out the Craft and Farmers Market.
(Interior of Koukla)
I also visited Lark, a gorgeous store that supports hand-made products and not-for-profit groups. They were having a garage sale and I picked up a couple of items.
Coffee and cake to finish and provide the stamina for the drive back to Melbourne.
