Event LOVE...Happy 10th Birthday

to our wonderful friends Thousand Island Dressing!

Tonight was a celebration of a very special milestone {that we mentioned here}. Our friends and neighbours on Upper Latrobe Tce in Paddington, Thousand Island Dressing, celebrated 10 years of providing fabulous jewellery and colourful homewares to an ever-growing fan base {guilty as charged!} in brisbane and beyond. The drinks were flowing, the company was wonderful and it was hard to not be distracted by all of the gorgeous things!
Congratulations, once again, on a truly remarkable achievement Leanne! Here's to the next ten...

Event LOVE...a shimmery wedding suite

Today we are sharing a wedding suite that we recently completed for a very laid-back and utterly lovely couple. They were super easy to work with and turns out the wedding suite is everything this couple wanted {I think/hope} without them being able to verbalise...simple yet elegant with just the right amount of shimmer and silver!

Event LOVE...Pretty stripes

But tonight I couldn't wait any longer to share this sneak peek at a gorgeous wedding invite we are working on at the moment...
Gosh we are loving that deep navy stripe!

Dining out with Jean & Joyce

A little while ago some friends took us to a restaurant by the name of Carolina Kitchen that serves good ol' southern {American} style cooking. I mentioned this in passing to my dad {a little while ago} and suffice it to say I haven't heard the end of it. So last night we went... 
...I think he enjoyed it!

Complete with plastic check tablecloths and a fridge full of Dr Pepper you would be forgiven for thinking you had made a stop at a diner off Route 66. Diet be gone we ordered the whole hog {pun intended!}; BBQ ribs, a bucket of hot wings, cheeseburgers and chilli fries. Stuffed as we were we couldn't leave without trying the pie, both of them; pecan pie and pumpkin pie {the table was split 50/50 as to which was best, my vote was Pecan!}.

So if you find yourself in Coorparoo and have a hankering for some hearty comfort food make sure you stop by Carolina will be worth it!

Paper LOVE...Thank You!

We were recently lucky enough to make Thank You cards in honour of a special someone's arrival.
I know you are not supposed to have a favourite client or job, but...
...this face is going to be seriously hard to top!

I sure wouldn't mind receiving this gorgeous shot in the post,

Paper LOVE...The heart of the home

We recently moved house and while I can deal with the chaos of unpacked boxes and misplaced china and silverware, not having anything on the walls is too much to bare. So I figured new house new piece of art...however therein lay the problem. Well two problems actually; 1. the artwork that I love all seems to be outrageously expensive and 2. I have this thing where I LOVE something new each week! 
So here was the solution...
I stumbled across this photo {taken at my little brothers birthday in February last year} that I had forgotten about but absolutely adore and had had this saying by E.E. Cummings floating around in my head for a while now and it seemed like lightning {or inspiration} struck! So it was a detour to Ikea on the way home from Mt Tamborine on Sunday to find a frame {the biggest one of course} and then I could size the image, add the words and have it printed. And then as they say voila instant artwork and happy walls!

P.s. I kinda love the way it turned out and so am thinking of having some made up to sell in store. What do you think?

Fabric LOVE...Cushions for the Lounge

...Java Lounge that is!

On Monday afternoon mum delivered this gorgeous mound of cushions to our friends {and neighbours on Upper Latrobe} Java Lounge Cafe. Gosh that woman sure is clever, she painstakingly hand stitched different details onto each cushion! I can't wait to get in there and take some photos of the cushions in situ but I couldn't wait to share them so we will have to make do with this photo mum sent me from her phone {possibly the only thing she isn't great!}
Love them! Next time you are in Paddington stop by the Java Lounge and make yourself cosy and then of course come and visit us.

Paper LOVE...Neutral Metallics

Hi friends I hope you had a wonderful weekend...we sure did!
In a nutshell: Finders Keepers, Mt Tamborine, wine and cheese...Bliss. We did manage to do a little bit of work as well though; the cutest new baby thank you's that we can't wait to share, but today we wanted to share some save the dates that went out recently...
The bride and groom wanted a simple and classic look for their invitations and were a delight to work with, I am so glad they were happy with how they turned out.

Can't wait to start on the wedding invites!

Event LOVE...A huge milestone

Recently we created an invitation for our friends and neighbours Thousand Island Dressing {on Upper Latrobe in Paddington} for their 10th birthday. We were thrilled to be able to be a part of this amazing milestone and were more than happy to help when they came to us. We knew the invitation had to be only one thing...colourful, just like the gorgeous jewellery that adorns the store. We were all very happy with the way it turned out and can't wait to celebrate this special occasion...
Congratulations again guys on 10 wonderful years...what an achievement!

Jean & Joyce at home...with Nick & Jenny

...and baby Harvey to!

We thought we would start a little 'At home with Jean & Joyce' section on the blog to showcase some of the gorgeous homes we get to be a part of. And what better place to kick things off than with Nick & Jenny {the lovely couple we created the pom pom mobiles for here}. Nick & Jenny have collected some gorgeous pieces from us {& others on our Upper Latrobe strip} over the last couple of years and we were even lucky enough to create their gorgeous aqua bedsides for them! We absolutely adore the way Nick & Jenny have filled their home and can feel that every piece has been hand selected with love and care...
Nick & Jenny, thank you so much for letting us showcase your gorgeous home and congratulations on the birth of your gorgeous new addition...we can't wait to meet him!
