Australia 1.- Melbourne


26 February 2013

We are at the end of first week of our holiday. Melbourne was great. The weather was fantastic, we enjoyed loads of sun, salt water....a trip to mountains (Puffing Billy) was refreshing and having our legs out of the windows was quite liberating. The hotel we stayed in (The Prince) was pretty cool with wonderful location but not very child friendly, I know it's more young, party type of hotel but anyway, they were fine but not fantastic.
I went to couple nice little shops as well, but more about that next time.
I hope you are all ok?

Last year I have decided to start adding other designers to our shop. The first of them is called appropriately - The First Snow. They make wonderful items for weddings, painted cake toppers, posters, table numbers and custom wedding signs. I fell in love with their handmade, hand painted style, pretty details and colours. We now stock some of their items and I'm so happy! They are truly lovely and would finish any wedding perfectly. all available in our shop now - head over here

18 February 2013

Yes we are leaving for 3.5 weeks to Australia! My husband, three kids - 4.5, 14.5, 19 and I. We will be  staying for 4 days in Melbourne, week in Sydney, couple days in Blue Mountains, couple days somewhere close to Brisbane and a week by Fraser's Island. I can't wait. I have never been before and I'm full of expectations.

We are flying tonight and feel a bit calmer now. Work has been sorted as my amazing assistant Sarah will be fully in charge of our shop and our home will be occupied by our friends from Czech. has been very manic few weeks and I can't wait to relax and have a bit of sun in my face.

My husband is turning 40 next week and this trip is a present for and from him. I will be still posting over here as I have some great post prepared for you and the plan is to post photos from our holiday as well.

So back to our trip. Have you got any tips? things not to miss out in Australia? favourite restaurants, galleries, shops, places?
I would love to hear.

paper garlands


14 February 2013

Hope you are enjoying Valentine's day, and if you don't celebrate it, just having a good day.

In next couple of days I will be posting about loads of new products from our shop. I hope I don't bore you too much with it, I'm just trying to show you everything before I will be travelling to a different continent next week....more about it later...

I wanted to have these paper garlands in our shop for a long time. They are finally finished and I just love them. You can chose from 8 different types and colours. From yellow to gold and bronze to blue and silver. They are about 10ft (3m) long and would make a wonderful decorations for weddings, parties, kids bedrooms or as a photo backdrop. Some of the circles or flowers are double layered so they create a lovely 3D effect. So pretty!

Do you like them?

you can buy them here or here.

happiness is made for you


12 February 2013

I never really told you about this poster we now have in our shop - Happiness is made for you. I always find it fascinating how people come up with ideas. So if you are interested here is a story behind this poster.
As you might know I'm a huge secret romantic and I love old love stories, nothing cheesy but classical type of romance, sad, eternal love. That kind of feelings people die for.
So when I was reading Love Letters of Great Men , which I really enjoyed by the way, I came across one letter from Napoleon to his wife Josephine. And this is the part of the letter:

" Do not put yourself out; run after pleasures; happiness is made for you. The entire world is too glad to be able to please you......."

So here you go this is my inspiration.  I think we are partly responsible for our happiness and if we believe we deserve to be happy we are more likely be that way.....
