errr’body’s going surfing…

One of our lovely stockists on the Gold Coast of Australia, I Just Love That Fabric, sent me these photos last week of what one of their customers did with my Pink Flamingo fabric. They made a SURF BOARD!!!! How unbelievably cool is this? Don’t you just want to learn how to surf immediately so you can have one? Or make space on your wall so you can just look at it?? Ha ha, as you can probably tell, we are very excited about this!!

We are also super excited about our Cape Town cushion being featured as part of their monochrome inspired shop ZA section in this month’s Glamour magazine : )

You can buy it here.

Now available at LoveLeeHome (Australia)…

I am delighted to introduce to you a brand new stockist called LoveLeeHome in Australia. It is a lifestyle and accessories online shop based in Australia. They have a gorgeous array of products across lots of different categories, and all from different parts of the world. They have Handmade by Me stock over there, so if you live in Oz, this is probably the quickest way to get your hands on my products.

Here is what the owner Cara Lee, who is originally from South Africa, has to say about her new venture…

“Developed on a shoe-string and a prayer, LoveLeeHome is my dream, a long time in the making, brought to life. I’ve always had a strong idea of what I wanted the end product to be, and getting there has been no small feat, but such an exciting adventure too. When you’re pouring every spare moment you have working on a project, but it doesn’t feel like work, that’s when you’re doing something you love.

 Having relocated to Australia from my native South Africa, I was inspired by the thought of new beginnings and adventures, which coupled with my love and passion for all things home, sparked an idea which ultimately blossomed into LoveLeeHome. I wanted to create an online platform offering a curated collection of products for the home and the designer woman that weren’t widely available in Australia, so I set about finding suppliers and products that would meet that brief. Essentially, if I loved it and would want it in my home AND if it was something a little different, a little unique and perhaps even quirky, then it was a must! Having worked in the South African home décor / textile industry prior to moving to Australia, I knew that there was a wealth of amazingly talented designers in South Africa who are manufacturing products of a world class standard, so I figured what better way to start than with the products I already knew and loved. The idea continued to evolve culminating in a handful of talented designers from South Africa and the rest of the world on board. Many months and endless hours later here we are, ready to showcase to the rest of the world just what Love Lee Home has to offer.”

And here are some of the cool things available at LoveLeeHome ( other than Handmade By Me obvs ; ) )
