On the weekend a special celebration was held for the impending arrival of Caroline's bub. The shower was organised by three very dear friends of Caroline; Jane, Edwina and Tess, and had an overall theme of doilies and high tea. More photos will follow soon but in the meantime we are showing you the gorgeous handmade invitations (above) which included fabric bunting sewn on, a Polli wooden Doily brooch and were posted in these yummy envelopes by Poppies for Grace, as well as the bunting made for decoration.
The bunting was lovingly made by Tess, using Dandi's Doilie fabric in both Berry and Wisteria. It is double sided and sewn together using bias tape.
We think it turned out so beautifully! Thanks Tess for making such a beautiful project out of our fabric!

Caroline had an early Christmas celebration this year and decked out
her table Dandi style to get the mood happening. A plain dyed tablecloth and holly berry napkins were used to set the scene.
to the occasion
Edible napkin decorations - yummy plump cherries to accentuate the red.
They even had matching cocktails courtesy of our favourite Dandi
Nadine. Recipe for these to follow!

and did a spot of shopping. One of our favourites was the La Rarastand.
The Dandi girls were already familiar with La Rara (aka Lara Raymond) and couldn't help but buy up lots of her gorgeous handmade cards. You can pick up your own copies at her etsy store - she offers FREE postage!
Such a cute stand (and stand holder!) with so many yummy things to buy!
All the Dandi girls couldn't walk past this gorgeous tea cup card.
had to buy two copies so she could keep one and give one away!

Last night the Dandi girls (sans Manny who had her exciting exhibition
opening which will be featured next week) went Christmas (and personal) shopping at the fabulous Magnolia Square market at RandwickRacecourse. We saw lots of yummy things and made quite a few purchases which we will show you over the next week. The first feature from a cute art print brand call Printspace.
Printspace are a Melbourne based Husband and Wife team who also run graphic designfirm. Mara and Nicholas collaborate on the Printspace artworks and we love the result.
Caroline purchased the print above from the Printspace stand - it really is too cute!
The above image was a postcard freebie from their stand - good enough to frame don't you think? Thanks Printspace for coming up to Sydney and enlightening us with your artworks!
Magnolia Square is on from now until Saturday 21 November. Don't worry if you can't make it though as we will post some goodies all next week and you can check out more stalls on the Magnolia Square website

Very often in life, a change is as good as a holiday, and with this in mind Caroline and Mindi decided to spice up their living spaces with some yummy new cushions from Pad.
We first spotted Pad over a year ago and have been loving their gear ever since. The current collection features an awesome range of colours including fresh green, sapphire and ash grey and the quality of fabric is the very best - durable and snuggly at the same time.
Its fair to say we went a little crazy and our living rooms could now double as Pad showrooms, but the end result breathes new life and inspiration into our worlds and that is what is most important, right?
You can find Pad cushions at the following stores in Sydney:
