11 March 2014

So over this heat, but at least we’ll always have ice-cream…


Been hanging out with these two, watching them chase each other in the yard.


And obviously, have been loving looking after Ponyo occasionally. You got a little sumthin’ sumthin’ on your chin there…


I found sock heaven at Emily’s house.


I’ve been praying for the cold to hurry up so I can wear all my embroidered cardies!


Been eating delicious Sundaes at Doughbox Diner with various lovely ladies.

Baby Ponyo

4 February 2014

Lyndsay got a new little baby last week, her name is Ponyo and she’s quite possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.


Wilfy quite liked her too!!


And when she’s cold she becomes a pug burrito.


The face.


Wilfy was hoping we could keep her!


And (not so) secretly, so was I! Kx

Storybook Rabbit at Finders Keepers Sydney

5 December 2013

If you are around in Sydney this weekend and have time to get down to the finders keepers at ATP, The Storybook Rabbit will be having a small stall filled to the brim with goodies! I’ve been making SO MANY things over the last few weeks, most of them all new, bunny filled and crazy-cute.unicorn

I’ve been making cute tea sets with my characters on them. These ones I’ve held onto for a long time and have decided its time to part with them.


and these cute purses which have my characters back and front.

And I’ve been hand sewing these teeny bunny brooches (and some pugs too!) who will be up for adoption at the markets.buns

I’ve even named them all!


And how about some juno bunnies on your nails? Yes, they’re cute little nail decals!


And i’ll also have a few sets of hand painted babushka dolls, which all have their own personality!


and as always, I’ll have loads of plates too, with new characters and old favourites!plates

And just because its been a while since I’ve blogged, here’s some cute photos of my inspiration, the kids.

Juno smiling for parsely.


This is Wilfred’s “i want some more of your veggie burger” face.


Hope to see you all at the markets friday night and saturday, but if you can’t make it I’ll be having a big etsy update straight after on monday night! Kx



4 December 2013

We took an all too quick trip to Wellington a few weeks ago to see the sights and have a little break for Trev’s birthday.


We visited a long-time blog friend Georgia (of The Velvettes) who took us op-shopping around the outer Wellington areas.


Which is where I found these guys, who I donated to mums collection.


We took a few road trips around the coastal areas, admiring all the amazing winding roads, the mountains and the fields full of sheep!nz

or should I say DEER! I was a tad excited to spy these guys.


But probably not as excited as when we rummaged through great vintage shops like this one.


and this one…dresses and this one…


and then we met a giant albino kiwi! isn’t he the cutest?


But all too soon it was time to leave! I’m so glad we squeezed in our little trip to somewhere so close to Australia, yet so incredibly pretty, just like being somewhere in Europe! Kx




Sneaky Peek

1 November 2013

Here’s a little sneak peek at a new range we’ve been working on, featuring some of our very favourite Edgar’s Mission Residents! Edgar’s Mission is an amazing animal sanctuary who rescue animals from the meat industry and other places, almost any animal who needs a home on the farm is given one! There are so many amazing stories to be read and animals to be sponsored too. We love them. And Lyndsay made their beautiful website too!



This is Boots the baby goat!

Ruby the rescue farm dog!


Scooby Doo the Alpaca in a coat.


And Polly! The famous pig! YAY! Stay tuned for more cuties in the works. Kx

Good Things Lately..

30 October 2013

We spent a lovely weekend away on the south coast a few weekends ago. As you can see Mollymook beach was a little choppy (in fact we lost Wilfred’s favourite frisbee in that there surf…can’t you tell from the look of disappointment on the boys faces?), but it was lovely at Callala Bay where our holiday house is.


We ate delicious burgers at Pilgrims in Milton, always a highlight. I do live for an amazing veggie burger, and this is close to the best!pilgrims

It was so nice having a weekend away with boys, Wilfred was so happy to be at the beach everyday.


I got some very good news that I’ll be having another stall at The Finders Keepers in December with Kirbee Lawler. Lots of bunnies, as always.


I then quickly got onto making cute new things! These tiny little Storybook Brooches have been quite the hit over on etsy. Each little book locket contains a tiny printed concertina of my characters. Fun huh?


And inspired by Lyndsay’s forever wanting of her very own pug, I drew this little cutie (a pug in a pom pom scarf) and popped him on some tiny heart brooches.


I’ve also been making some tiny little peg sets for my market stall, as well as loads of plates as always.


And speaking of cute things, how great is this puppy brooch I got on etsy recently? His little eyes move side to side when you push the little tail on his bow!


I garage sale hunted on the weekend with Kirbee and found these adorable brooches too! I’ve wanted some of these floral enamel brooches for ages, and was so excited finding some at a garage sale. Happy days!


And as mentioned earlier, in my endless search for the best veggie burger, I was overwhelmed with happiness when Lashings opened around the corner! I got the usual veggie burger but the winner of the night was the felafel burger that Trev got.


And lastly Juno, as always, has been digging herself an elaborate tunnel system. She has dug under the patio, under the fence and several holes in our garden. It’s fascinating to watch her fill the tunnels back in too, though not before she hops around the front yard and says hello to the neighbours. Kx




Monday in Melbourne

10 October 2013

On Monday we got up at the crack of dawn (literally before the crack of dawn – 4:30am! This is an unimaginable hour for me) and took off to Melbourne for the day, taking the non-public holiday in Melbourne for it had on offer!


First things first, BREAKFAST! My favourite meal of the day, especially on days off or weekends. We headed to Proud Mary where I ate the most delicious ricotta hotcakes of my life. Topped off with mulled wine spiced pears! Deeeeelish.


First stop on my list was the new Lark Store in Fitzroy. What a cute little shop! I instantly fell in love with this giant swan watering can, SO adorable.


As was this beautiful wall by Laura Blytheman who collaborated on a lot of the shop interiors.


Next stop was Gleaners Inc, run by the very amazing Liz of Betty Jo fame. It was such a perfect little cavern of wonders full of granny chic and adorable little treasures.


Next stop was Save Yourself Boutique where we met the very lovely Lala the pug and visited with Aidi the owner of the shop I met a few years ago in Melbourne at the Finders Keepers.


As you can imagine, Lala the shop pug was a little bit adorable.save2

As was the entire shop!save

I loved the Melissa shoe selection, stationary galore and gold gumball machine!MTmelb

And before we knew it, it was time to return to the airport and hop on a plane home to feed the fur kids their dinner. But I did spy some Made By White jewellery in one of our favourite stockist Monster Threads on my way back! Kx
