It’s one of those weeks where it all seems to be coming together in the 11th hour.  Well, that’s what I hope.  I am in denial of any anxiety that’s lurking nearby.  Lucky for me I have so many balls in the air at the moment I can’t focus on anything else.  Anxiety?  There’s no room for you on my To Do List this week!

What’s on this week, you ask?  Preps, of course, for Bowerbird Bazaar in Adelaide this weekend!  I love this event.  I love spending time in Adelaide.  I’d love to say Hi if you’re coming along.

In the meantime, I’m putting together a new season catalogue for the Trade Preview and have decided to name my pieces, rather than code them with unfeeling and impersonal numbers.  I thought I’d turn to my old childhood friend Barbie for some help, she suggested her sister’s name Tutti (did you know in the 60s Barbie had a sister Skipper, and twin brother and sister Tutti and Todd!).  This makes me think of the 70s, Tutti Frutti and summer and that makes me smile.  So I introduce to you this lovely vintage inspired colourway called ‘Tutti’.

Better get back to it, Tutti needs more friends and time is ticking.

Frankie and Ray - I’m with you, I love giving names to different colourways! And I’m loving Tutti as well, it straight away says Summer to me. Hope you have a wonderful weekend over there in Adelaide! xx
