Sharing hot chocolate with Juno.
Wilfy getting into the spirit of winter, pompoms and all.
But also very much loving the sunshine on a warm day at the park.
Creating some very special plates for Lepus Australis, which could possibly be the most amazing exhibition ever created. If you’re in Melbourne and have the opportunity to go this bunny exhibition on my behalf, please do!
Wearing my sock collection!
Presents in the mail! I was lucky enough to get a package from Tokyo last week, what more could I ask for but socks and a scallop cardy?
And my “pen pal” Lotte sent a huge package full of goodies from Amsterdam. It’s always an exciting delivery day when I see she is the sender. I’ll be lucky enough to meet her in person this month when we arrive in Amsterdam!
Ceramics classes with Kirbee. Can you spy all the bunnies she’s been making?
Customising my middie in preparation for Blythefest which happened on the weekend! So many Blythes in one place!
And getting to hang out with Kirbees’ bunny Beatrix while we did so.
Veggie deliveries from Aussie Farmers Direct on our doorstep! So nice to not have to do groceries and groan my way through Woolies (yes, it really is the small things!).
And finally getting to wear my quilted, scalloped, ric rac embellished square dance dress on the weekend. Sorry for the crappy mirror photo but you get the idea! Kx

We had a great time down at The Finders Keepers last weekend. We set up shop in a lovely (huge!) new venue at the Australian Technology Park.
I had plates, coffee cups, brooches, stud earrings and even little knitted headbands on offer.
I shared a big stall with the other bunny lady, Kirbee Lawler, who I met and befriended this time last year at the winter Finders Keepers.
Here are some other highlights of what I was selling.
It was a great event with lots of great stalls and I was so glad to be part of it again.
I have listed a bunch of new plates, coffee cups, bunny and framed character brooches, porcelain heart brooches, headbands, and even our super sweet K&K Collaboration pennants featuring bunnies by Kirbee and Myself united on one cute wall hanging!
And to finish off with something sweet, this vegan “nutella” I bought from The Vegan Teahouse at The Finders Keepers was by far the best this I invested in on the day! Kx

It’s finally here, the fiesta range is online and ready to find a place in your jewellery box! Here are my top 5 picks of our new range. You can view the entire range right here!
This sugar skull couple necklace is the perfect addition to any plain outfit to add colour and fun! I love their happy little faces.
This perfect pastel donkey brooch is by far my favourite of our new creations. She’s the best mix of colours and has such delicate eyelashes!
The piñata necklace seems to be the favourite of the batch so far. He’s so much fun and sure to draw a crowd at parties, just like the original pinata.
The tutti fruity (carmen miranda inspired) sloth brooch! How could one resist such charms and perfect colours?
And finally this sugar skull brooch is the perfect colour combo to dress up a black coat, I love his little mo and crazy eyeballs.

Lately I’ve been making lots of new goodies for this special event below, happening at the end of this month. I’m sharing a big stall with Kirbee Lawler, which is a promise for there to be way too many cute rabbit things on offer for you to be able to decide on one.
I’ve been working on tonnes of new plates and doilies.
Handcut magnet sets..
And even found time to list a few new pretties on etsy last week!
I’ve also been going blind painting teeny blythe brooches for the upcoming Blythefest stall I’m running with mum.
Oh and theres a cute little giveaway happening over on Frankies’ blog, here. Enter to win one of four cute winter bunny couple brooches by me! Kx

I’ve had a bit of luck lately at the op shops, mainly because I’ve been making a huge effort to duck into them as often as I can. I picked up a pile of vintage doilies.
This crazy 80′s panther brooch.
This adorable turtle art smock!
Several granny rugs, this one is such great colours.
And a plethora of vintage dresses, a few of these were hiding in my old wardrobe at mums place!
And one of my very favourite things to find, a couple of great coloured vintage belts!
And last but not least, I’ve been a little cape-obsessed coming into winter. This adorable fluffy little blonde number was too cute to leave behind! Fake fur of course. Kx

One of the things I look forward to most about winter is rugging up in lots of layers and pulling out my favourite woollen scarves, socks and cardigans. Every year mum takes on a new winter knitting project, and this year I suggested a hexagon cardigan, inspired by this amazing Tiny Owl Knits Beekeeper quilt I’ve had my eye on for a long time.
And here is what she came up with, in record time, in ALL my favourite colours.
It is beyond good, right? Every now and then the hexies feature florals, bows, cute little animals and even a little skull on my sleeve. I cannot believe how beautifully it turned out. Now I’m REALLY willing the cooler weather to hurry. Kx

My new little tokissi arrived last week! I pre-ordered her so long ago I almost forgot she was coming!
She’s a little bit cute!
I think I like her best because she’s so pastel and pretty. She even has pink eyes! I also chopped off my mint green middies’ hair this weekend and now I like her much more. Next I think I’ll customise her face. Kx
