Lucy In The Sky ...

Of course I am heavily biased because it is my beautiful and talented twin sister, but you must check it out, immediately if not sooner...

Lucy in the Sky is dedicated to the quest for the perfect travelling capsule wardrobe (and trying to look half as god as Elle McPherson getting off a plane). Along the way Luce will be not only reviewing products associated with the glamorous world of her business class jaunts across the globe, but also showcasing her own fashion designs... Luce is a very talented designer/dressmaker as well as an internationally acclaimed wine maker and wine buyer! What a fabulous combo!

Check it out kids! I remember being lovingly coaxed through my early months of blogging (some years ago now!) so lets extend the same hand of encouragement that we do to all new bloggers xx

Frenzy ...

Shops, shops, shops ... it's all I can think about at the moment...

Am a busy little beaver getting graphics and stock sorted out for our exciting new venture ... stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks...

Would love to be having one of these gorgeous little shops one day soon but alas it will have to wait and online we go! That said, should anyone in Adelaide hear of an unbeatable little shop for rent, preferably crumbling around the edges and full of historical character... let me know!

Moody ...

This room is also a giant pile of fabulous and awesome...
I love the moody tones, low slung art and mismatched furniture... the perfect space to work in with plenty of creative spirit.

Here ... new Tumblr crush...

Reshuffle ...

I know it's only Thursday but I'm really looking forward to a little bit of quiet this weekend...
Going to reshuffle my rooms, get my desk organised and ready for drawing some Christmas Calendars, and pick some lovely new flowers...
How bout you?

(I hope my reshuffle turns out half as lovely as this!)

Fab ...

So so good... unbeatable in fact...
Lonny nails it AGAIN!

I know the new edition is out but Ben Brougham's whimsical and perfectly edited little apartment from the last edition, sigh, j'adore... and I envy him even more now I know he works for Jonathan Adler!

Light Fantastic ...

I'd happily give my left arm for this fabulous light since this right one might be lonely for a friend... but then I'd have a killer lamp but be down an arm... dilemma...?

Hmm, that said, instead I could happily switch a leg or two after tennis this weekend ... moving at a pace faster than walking was quite a shock to the system!

Light fantastic by Get Back ... stunning!

Busy Busy ...

Hello lovely ones!

What a long hiatus from the blog... have been super dooper busy with my brothers wedding to the gorgeous Lucia! Mum and I arranged and styled all the flowers for the day, making this the inaugural White & Wander event! We had a ball, lots of hard work of course but it was really great to be officially doing what we love. 

Above is a shot of me sitting in the back of our hilarious little florists van... we love the Kangoo, have no idea how we lived without it before! It is truly the handiest car under the sun...
 Such professional florists! The garage was piled high with our lovingly painted white sticks and gathered blossom (of which there was 3 times this much in the end!)... I've never breathed in so much paint fumes in my life...
 I wish I got better photos but here is the finished table setting - very simple but very tall since we had a massive ceiling to fill, and 27 tables to create... white blossom, white sticks and pussy willow...
 One of two very large arrangements for the church and then entrance to the reception... the same as the tables but padded out with lots of gathered garden leaves for the casual feel we wanted...
Here is the view across part of the hall... the massive pyramid topiary was one of 8 pyramid and ball topiary we had delivered for the day... a lovely simple touch which we will be sure to use again ...

Phew!

To add to this fun we have also been gearing up for some other very exciting changes in the land of White & Wander... spiffy blog renovation and gorgeous new logo are just the tip of the iceberg ... stay tuned!
