I know her!!

Wow! Where have I been? I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post.

I promise that I have lots of good reasons for my absence but I was jolted back into the world of blogging after my amazing friend Renee Anne was featured in the Sydney Morning Herald's Sydeny Magazine yesterday.

It was the fashion issue and featured interviews with the likes of Sydney fashion icons Kirrily Johnston, Megan Gale and...Renee!

It was so wonderful to see someone looking out from the pages of a glossy mag talking about sustainable and ethical fashion. And if you can do the right thing and still look as gorgeous as Renee, who wouldn't be convinced??

So be sure to go over and check out Renee's blog where she talks about her art and life in general and also the online vintage boutique {twin set} where Renee is co-director and responsible (along with Ang from Leeloo) for a wonderful range of ridiculously gorgeous dresses and accessories.

And of course a big thanks to Renee for giving a little shout out to ReJenerate in her lovely article. Very chuffed was I.

PS I will be coming back over the next few days with photographic evidence of what has been keeping me so busy that I couldn't find time to blog for weeks. Gasp!

Something Old...

I love, love, love making custom bridal and bridesmaid clutches for super lovely brides all over the world.

Lately I have been working on some extra special projects which involve creating clutches from lovely, crazy, pretty, personal bits and pieces from the family of the bride.

These are so fun to make that I thought I would share an example with you all.

Above are some doilies and runners sent to me by a lovely bride whose great aunts were crochet champions so she dug out some pieces she loved and I used them to create a clutch for her and her mum for her wedding day.

Such a beautiful and meaningful keepsake.
