Another great delivery of bags made by a guy called....Matt! This year is an exciting year as its been 10, yes thats right ten years since Matt started producing his signature style, that by now has to be considered a Melbourne icon!
Included in the delivery are the cuisenaire rod bags in amazing colours. These little blocks or rods where once used in schools for teaching mathematics...but not in my days!

They have scanned a number of designs in and using their tricky digital printer, ta-da brand new look for an seemingly defunct product! Along with those bags we have some great Ink and Spindle fabrics again- raspberry and aqua in the Birch Forest design has been restocked after selling out!
Big congratulations to Mattt and his hard working team as well as all the loyal supporters.

On the theme of books, we have on our shelves a's the exciting new project put together by the team at Frankie Magazine. As big as a book, but with that styley feel to a magazine, thats how you get the mook, cute yeah.
Featuring a whole talent of people from here in Australia and reaches far across the globe.

A peep into other crafty homes, and seriously who can deny that don't love to take a peek!

We love books and a local project so were doubly excited when 'and collective/erm books' started talking about their latest offerings, in the form of limited edition, artists books.

Beautiful white vessels arrived this week from Kenji Uranishi. Everything comes wrapped carefully and is a pleasure to discover.

This time the pourers have sweet little trees on them, some even have a special double trunk- perhaps for a wedding or engagement, now that would be lovely.

I heard someone discussing their Christmas tree that was purchased last year at some expense- it was decided in their house that the tree was to go up on the first of December, to make the most of it you see.
Lucky for them we have Christmas decorations from 'Dick and Dora' on hand, ready for the big day.
This year we have retro baubles small and large, and doves with frilly wings which are a two piece ensemble.
There are a number gracing our windows at the moment along with the limited edition 'Hook Turn' BYO cups in seriously festive colours.
