boutique melbourne..

Less then two weeks now until we're off to Melbourne for Kids InStyle! We are staying in that bottom house, isn't it adorable? Last year we stayed in the house in the top photo, and just loved it. We booked through Boutique Stays, who I found wonderful to deal with, and well priced in my opinion. Many of their properties are pet friendly and perfect for families. I wonder if they'll give me a discount if I show them this post?

not so sneaky peek..

Look at these photos of me and little Meila (who we dressed as a boy for our last photoshoot, but could not get away with this time as she is just too pretty!). Just don't look behind us at what's on the walls - that's top secret and no one can see that yet. No peeking!

P.S. Only 4 days until Peta leaves for New York (ENK Children's Club)!!

my cup of tea...

I was introduced to Ali Mitton's photography by a mutual friend, I just love her work. She also happens to be as beautiful as her photographs, and is shooting my wedding

On an entirely separate note (though still photography related) we had our photoshoot for Mae's new designs yesterday! I will be posting some sneak peeks very soon..

ah, summer.

Summer.. I find you intolerable when you're here and long for you when you are not. I know, the grass is always greener, don't wish your life away, blah blah. But right now, shivering in my oversized jumper, I would do anything to be somewhere else, tropical and warm and sunshiny.

uh oh...

New stock from Gary Pepper Vintage is being listed in their ebay store tonight at 6.30.. I am super excited and my wallet is very concerned. On a side note.. could Nicole be any more stunning?

A HUGE thank you to everyone that entered our competition - we had so many thoughtful and inspiring answers! Special thanks to our winners (who have all been alerted by email) - Stephanie V, Maddalena C, Catherine B, Laura K, Amy and Stella.

In other news... we have been busy little bees here at the Mae Studio, with both ENK Children's Club (New York) and Kids In Style (Melbourne) trade shows next month. We are super excited about our New York trip and can't wait to see how Mae will be received by our American friends!

We may or may not have a few new designs to release, which we may or may not give a sneak peek of here in the next few weeks...

Hello world..

This feels a little like standing in public in my underwear (or at least, how I imagine that would feel).. there is an interview with me on Baby's Got Style's Style Baby blog - see how fast you can say that out loud a few times, you know you want to. Baby's got Style is a wonderful online store with everything for baby, child and mum.

I don't remember how I stumbled across Amy's lovely website, cake with giants, but I am ever so glad I did. I especially love these illustrations from her "once upon" series, featuring Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Aren't they just so soft and whimsical?

If you love a bargain...

...we have some last season stock on sale at our etsy store, but it won't be there long!

Dottie Angel

I wish Tif from Dottie Angel was my next door neighbour. Can you imagine being the first to a garage sale held by her?

Jacqueline Kari Bos

How pretty is that work space? I can't imagine you could ever feel uninspired sitting there. The colours and detail in Jacqueline's work is so... I just want to eat it. Yes. Scrumptious, I believe, is the word I'm looking for. Mmm.
