It's beginning to look a lot like...

The most exciting time of the year is already fast approaching - Christmas! I love this season so much I have already started to decorate, perhaps a wee bit early but not when the shops already started preparing for the holiday season in October!!

Each year I love to make my own decorations and embellish presents with handmade gift tags and toppers.

Making Marimekko

Finnish brand Marimekkoo launched a new store in Sydney a week ago! I paid a little visit on my lunch break and enjoyed browsing their kaleidoscope of floral print textiles,apparel and homewares. I wanted to take everything home in the store but given that their iconic pieces are quite exxy in price I settled for these napkins in my fave print.

I was also in awe of their store front fabric installations that included bicycles, trees, cars and poles wrapped in their stunning linen collection as well as giant Marimekko pillows!!

These pillows (seen in my below instagram snaps) inspired me to make my own 'paper' pillow version using their napkins.
Now I have my own little piece of Marimekko!

Book Drools

October/November has been exciting months for new book releases. I have been taking it easy this weekend with some couch time reading my latest book buys from some of my fave creatives.
Here are some sneaky snaps of the titles on my coffee table; Supermarket Sarah: Wonder Walls by Sarah Bagner.
