New Items ...

Saturday saw us visit our favourite twice-yearly church sale and it yielded some great new inventory.

The most exciting is this very old remington typewriter. I blogged about one very similar (if not the same) earlier in the year after missing out on it on eBay. We got this for a great price and with a bit of elbow grease will come up looking fabulous!

 It is not in working condition but would look great as a display piece at your event or photo shoot.

We have other typewriters available for hire which will be listed on facebook in the coming days.

Other items recently added to our inventory include a retro stool and vintage bird cage as well as some great blackboards.

I do need a little bit of advice though.

DIY Project I
Once I find the perfect fabric, is it as simple as stapling the new fabric nice and tight over the existing seat?

DIY Project II

The bird cage shell is made out of a metal-type material but the base is plastic. The stand is something similar to wrought iron and looks like it could be polished up. How would you attack this? Would you leave it as is or use spray paint or paintbrush to renovate it? What colour do you think?

Would love to hear your thoughts!

Libby and Peter's Wedding

Sorry for the delay in posting but I'm excited to share with you the results of our first photo shoot. We were uber happy with the results and the bridal party and photographers seemed pretty rapt too.

The following photos were taken on my iphone.

see anything you like? All items are available for hire.

For a full look at the wedding, go here. The bride has impeccable style as you will see from the reception styling, her dress and the stunning flowers.

To finish, I thought I'd share a little outtake from the afternoon.

Mum made a bit of a boo-boo with the letters thankfully before the gang showed up. I still look at this and giggle. She hadn't even had a drink!

A big thanks to Darren from ckmetrophotos for recommending us to the bride and of course to Libby for booking us!
