What Will You Find?

Yes - it is true!
That Vintage will be at the Sydney Finders Keepers Market event and I can barely contain my excitement!
This has been a long standing dream of mine since That Vintage began to grow from a hobby to a small business. If you have a dream that you are passionate about, go and put your heart and soul right into it - you can achieve whatever your heart desires.
See you there!

Picked By The People - Part Thirty-one.

Four gorgeous and cleverly curated Etsy Treasury lists featuring a piece of That Vintage! I have a soft spot for the bird themed one - how cute and feathery!

A Tea Party Garden Wedding.

A few weeks back, the lovely Cassie contacted me requesting a custom order of Tea Party earrings for her bridesmaids; the way Cassie described how her wedding was going to be gave me goosebumps - it sounded oh-so sweet, beautiful and unique! (Not to mention that I was tickled pink that she wanted to include pieces of That Vintage in her special day!)
And it certainly ended up being that way - the photographs are just divine!
Cassie picked the Sadie Tea Party earrings for her bridesmaids, which complimented their beautiful floral dresses so perfectly!

Such A Visual Delight.

The above photos are of the display of That Vintage in at the Kings Meadows Florist - displayed by my very clever friend Lauren.
Lauren certainly has an eye for visual merchandising and thinking outside of the box; her displays create little stories and I truly adore that!

And for all you lucky lovers of handmade goodness who live in or around Launceston, Lauren will be having a stall at the next Niche: All Wrapped Up market event, which may I add is only 30 days away - so check her out on facebook and be sure to follow her blog!

'Tis The Season, Niche Is Just Around The Corner.

Can you believe it? Niche: All Wrapped Up is on again in 35 days!
It really is so crazy how fast this year is travelling - I had a moment this morning where I was flicking through my calendar, looking at the rest of October and into November and December, I felt completely pooped after just looking at how chock-a-block the rest of the year is!

Niche: All Wrapped Up is a fabulous event - the crew at St Giles are fantastic and a pleasure to work with at the market.
This time around, the market is going to be bigger and better... four huge rooms, sixty stall holders and the "halls of Niche" will be decked out by the talented Lauren from Leaves & Stems.

Top secret - I have insider information, but I am not one to ruin a surprise!
You'll have to come along and check it out!

Such A Sweet Floral Tea Party.

Now, it is no secret... that I love my tea, I love my tea cups, I love flowers and I love what the lovely Lauren Burt at the Kings Meadows Florist does with nature.
Now, I also love what she does with the That Vintage displays in the florist shop!

Could you seriously get any sweeter?
One lump or two?

Picked By The People - Part Thirty.

Ahhh Dreaming of Winter...
Well, I do love a cosy cuddle-up during the cooler months, but the delicious warm sunshine and bright blue skies of Spring have definitely pushed Winter out of my mind - until the Dreaming of Winter Etsy treasury list by starhitchedwagon came along!

Two Seasons In One Day.

It is true about what they say when it comes to the weather in Tasmania and in particular Launceston.
Jacket on, jacket off, jacket on, jacket off.

Today I had to run a few errands in town but I also stopped off in the beautiful Princess Square park to soak up the fresh air and sit in peace for a moment or two.
Walking to the park, there was warmth from the sunshine and beads of sweat were starting to form on my skin, but once I sat down and started to take in the surrounds, the moody grey clouds closed in and all of a sudden, this day of Spring had morphed into a day reminiscent of Autumn.

The Little White T-Shirt.

I received a delightful purchase in the mail yesterday, my very first Bamboo t-shirt from The Little White T-Shirt Company ...and it is heavenly soft, comfortable and actually rather stylish! I wore mine today with a floral blazer and the Bird Pendant - great contrast and I was comfortable, win win!
It is always such a nice feeling knowing that you have purchased something "good" ...carbon neutral, 100% bamboo and from a small business of the proud owner and operator Lynette - who has a heart of gold and such great customer service!
Highly recommended.
I'll be purchasing another soon!

A Wild Purring Whirlwind.

Everyone, meet Dane.
Dane, meet everyone.
Dane is the ace kiwi chap behind the really fab blog Tornadoes and Tigers, where he features some candid and beautifully photographed moments with his young family, plus puts some deliciously bright spotlights on all things awesome - from illustrators, designers, other bloggers and just really neat cool things.
As a surprise letterbox treat, I sent Dane a pair of That Vintage Feather Cufflinks.
I had a feeling he'd dig them and dig them he did - he even blogged about them!

The cufflinks are exclusively available online at Foxes.

And That Is A Pretty Pink Wrap.

The lovely Madeline was last night eliminated from the Australia's Next Top Model competition.
But she went out on a bright pink, dripping-in-paint high! Just look at how amazing her photograph is! I would say, in my opinion, that would be her best shot in the competition and all the girls looked like they had such fun rolling around in a trough of pink paint... and posing with cute boys!
Big things lie ahead for this girl; her parting words were true, she was who she truly is during the competition, complete with all the little animated animal and dance moves!
Well done Mads!

Tea Party For Fourty-eight.

Do not be fooled, I did not have a tea party for fourty-eight guests... as much fun as that would be!
Fourty-eight Tea Cup & Saucer necklaces were made yesterday.
That's a lot of little miniature tea cups!

Our Garden.

I spent this morning out in the sunshine in our garden with a cup of green tea and my kitty Blossom in tow - she now follows me around like a dog, it's amusing but oh-so cute.
The warmth from the sun on your skin instantly makes you feel positive; our garden was glowing this morning so I felt inspired to take some photos and spend sometime observing.
Our Australian native plants are starting to bloom with their intricate flowers, the blossom blooms on the Golden Elm tree are starting to wither as the buds of the new leaves start to evolve and my all time favourite Silver Birch trees are now thickening up with lush green leaves and their whispy pods that as a child, I remember picking and rubbing them between my fingers to let loose all their little poddy-goodness.
Oh nature and Spring, you are such a delight.
