Cook Book Feature

Eucalypt Homewares is featured in a local produce cookbook. It is all very exciting especially as I haven't seen it yet! The book launch is this week...oooh....

I have been asked by the publicist to make a number of bowls and platters so it has been madness in the studio over the last week - yes even more so than usual. Above is snap of the studio this morning.

Watch this space for more info....

Five Faves

Thanks to Justine for yet another wonderful Perth Upmarket. She even managed to turn on a beautiful sunny (and freezing) day! Thank you to all of you who came to make it a successful day!

Here's my five favourites for the day...
On my stall it has to be these Reindeer Christmas Decorations - they sold out! Don't worry I plan to make plenty more for the Christmas markets.

Rachel Hancox Designs was the next stall to mine. She designs and makes the most gorgeous children's illustrations and toys. I bought these very cute little brooches for my two little girls.

Petit Cupcake are Perth designed and made dresses. I bought this lovely dress for Eve - it's her birthday soon. They are beautifully made and very versatile dresses.

This bag I bought at Christmas time from Anthea from Yuniko Studio. It has be very well used! Check out Anthea's blog - she makes lovely things for children and adults from found objects and re-cylced materials. Yuniko was at the Perth Upmarket this time - I hope to see her next time too...

And last but not least, my wonderful mum! She is always a star helping me at my markets. Thanks mum!
I must say it was pretty good coming home after a very long day at the market to a husband who not only fixed the leaky taps in the bathroom, but also made a delicious Chicken roast with real homemade stuffing and gravy!

Wendy's design was inspired by her daughter's cute flower drawings.

These are Claire's pretty plate and bowls.
Next term we are making Christmas tree decorations and a Nativity set. I will be taking enrolments soon. Send me an email if you would like to be on my contact list to receive info on classes and markets
