what do you collect?

May 26, 2011

Stamps, erasers, soaps.... at some stage of my life (mostly when I was much, much younger) I've collected all of these things. I remember my favourite eraser was a yellow cassette tape that I received from a boy in my 4th grade class for giving him the answer to a test question. Oh dear, did I just admit to helping someone cheat? Let's quickly move on....

Many years later and I'm still collecting. My pile of vintage aprons is threatening to take over the kitchen. And stashed somewhere at the back of my wardrobe is a big box of Peanuts comic books. I long for the day I have more space so that I can start to display my collections and perhaps start a few new ones...

Until then, I'm always interested to see other people's collections of things. Here are a few of my favourites:

Freshly washed vintage fabric - today is perfect laundry weather with lots of sunshine + lots of wind!

I was disappointed when the spout on this watering can snapped off after only a couple of weeks. But then I planted some herbs in it - I love it's new use!

Native violets, just waiting for them to flower....

My chillies are starting to turn red!

Happy weekend x

no talk of hibernation

May 12, 2011

It may be cold, dark and rainy in Melbourne but that does not mean the Rabbit & the Duck are going into hibernation. Quite the opposite really, we have some big events planned for the coming months and plenty of things to keep us busy : )

Our next event is just over 2 weeks away so put Sunday May 29 in your diary if you love local designer talent. Markit Design Market is coming to Federation Square that day with over 60 stalls showcasing the best of illustrative and decorative design. I'm excited that my stall will be opposite Penny from Pocket Carnival, I've been hearing about her new stand display and can't wait to see it on the day!

We're also very excited to announce that we will be coming to Brisbane for the first time! You'll find us at The Finders Keepers event on the first weekend of July.

Phew. I think I need a cup of tea while I start writing my to do lists!
