Well hi again!
I know I know two posts in one day is a tad extreme especially when I have been known to go weeks without a sound. But when exciting things happen they must be talked about and Collaborate for a Cause is one exciting thing!
Earlier I showed you all my Cotton Candy collaboration created in conjunction with My Little I Designs, Avierley Boutique, Squirrel and Fink, Wife-Made, Two Little Loves, Muddy Ruffles with gorgeous model Harlow and her clever photography mum Sarah, you can read all about it and see the stunning pics here.
My second Collaboration is this amazing Book Nook, curated by the lovely Fiona who runs the successful Instagram account fee_loves. When it comes to style Fee is all over it and has an amazing eye for putting magic together. This is the second year I have worked with her and as always she didnt fail to disappoint.
See I told you – beautiful!!
A lot of time and effort went into this set, but boy did the planning pay off, I couldnt imagine any little girl not wanting this in the corner of their room.
Time to introduce the fabulous girls I worked with:
First up lets talk about that beautiful big floor pillow! Michelle from the Toffee Tree did an amazing job, the set would be lost without it. And resting on it that divine doll face cushion from Kira at Blooms and Butterflies Doll Studio. Imagine the secrets she could be told on a quiet afternoon!
The bunting was made by the talented Sedef of Down Grapevine Lane. She has been busy creating her first fabric line for Riley Blake called Sweet Orchard and writing a book as well! So awesome that she took time out of her crazy life to make the bunting and it, as expected, turned out beautifully.
The wall art was donated by Tanealle of Silent Little Whispers, a fabulous Dr Seuss quote. Simple and perfect amongst all that amazing colour.
And what book nook would be complete without a book cradle. Lisa Marie from Bear and Sparrow was the best choice as you can all see with that divine poodle, I wont lie I want her beside my armchair to hold my magazines.
Of course if you are book nooking you should always do it in fabulous style which is where this stunning dress made by Tash from Ellie’s Handmade comes in handy. Laying around with a good book has never looked better!
And a hair bow! If you are laying around reading books in your prettiest dress then how important your hair is immaculately styled and looking fabulous (unless you are my feral children of course!) This pretty is from Belynda of Creative Butterfly Designs fits the bill perfectly.
And last but not least, my contribution. A hexagon themed quilt, cushion and apple pie cushion. Backed in snuggly flannel and ready for some serious book time.
The fabric we used is the amazing Sommer collection by Sarah Jane Studios which was kindly donated by the fabulous Deanne from Fabric Pixie, another great Australian fabric store. Proceeds from this one are going to Rett Syndrome Australia. The photos you see were taken by Fiona herself under her new business Little M.E Images, she is going to do great things in the world of product photography I can tell!
Collaborate for a Cause starts tonight here and you can find our collab here, it has been so exciting reading all the feedback and comments about this so we hope the bidding goes all kinds of cray cray.
And that is enough words for me in one day, I am off to soothe sick kids and have a last cup of tea. I will be watching the auction unfold and you may even see me bid on a few amazing collabs myself.
