Teatime in Spring Sneak Peek


I've been a busy little bee lately. I have finally jumped on the Instagram bandwagon and find it a little too easy to just post a photo to IG instead of taking the time to write a blog post! I must endeavour to find a balance in this as in all things.

Anyhow. I just wanted to share a little sneak peek of something I've been working on recently. Inspired by the beautiful spring weather we are having here in Brisbane, I am working on a little spring brooch collection. I know, I know, I'm supposed to work a season or two ahead, but I'm not that organised (yet). This is a bit of an expansion of some ideas I have had previously, including some products I have made. I am making a small run of these items in some limited colours. Mint, pastel pink and purple, bright pink and taupe are featuring in my colour scheme for this range. 

As I sit here typing this, I glanced down and noticed for the first time that the colour scheme of the little car my learning-to-walk baby pushes around is very similar to this! Maybe it subconsciously inspired me. This gorgeous floral fabric that is background in this photo was also part of the inspiration. 

So think afternoon tea in spring - cupcakes, donuts, cups of tea and macarons feature in my spring teatime collection. It's hard to work on these as they make me hungry every time!

What is your favourite afternoon tea treat?


  1. Yummy brooches!! Clever girl, and love the colour scheme! xx

  2. So fantastically cute! I think my favourite afternoon treat varies a bit with the seasons. These days I'm definitely leaning towards anything that's jam packed with apples, pears, cinnamon and/or pumpkin.

    1. Thanks Jessica. After reading your comment, now I'm craving apple cinnamon teacake and pumpkin pie! Just had a peek at your scrapbooking and vintage blogs - lovely! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment :-)

  3. I've been slack with my blogging too. Instagram is certainly a faster. I have been following you there too candy and enjoy seeing your new designs.
