Weekend Happenings…& The Winner!



Well first of all, thank you for the response to the giveaway…I will get to the that in a moment. Firstly I wanted to share a little about the weekend which was a little weird after last week.

As always, when something throws me off track, I bake. I find making food for those I hold dear very rewarding and I tried this Brown Sugar and Caramel sponge cake on Saturday, and may I just say, it is the best sponge recipe I have ever tried!


The sponge was soooo fluffy and light and that caramel topping was heaven. I tweaked it a little to suit us as I always do  but, wow! amazing! It seems a lot of you have liked the baking I have been doing and as a lot have asked for the recipes, I will post them here soon.

Now, after this was tackled along with all of the other weekend jobs that never seem to end there was some serious stuff to attend too…


You may remember this? It was all of the work from last week that came smashing to the floor in a million bits – not happy! This meant some things needed to change in the studio and first up was the culprit screen HAD.TO.GO!


Mic and I brought this beast of a cupboard into the studio to be filled with basically everything – it’s huge.

Solid wood with large pigeonholes and the two long sides. It was once a wardrobe…can you imagine what you could get in here? Once in, I went about filling it with kilos and kilos of ceramic and porcelain, market props, photo shoot props, paint etc, etc. I love it. It couldn’t be open like this though…too annoying for me….


So on went some white curtains to cover the ‘stuff’. Can’t believe the amount of floor space this thing has freed up and it is right next to the work table too…bonus! Hopefully now with some drying racks bolted to the walls and this baby in here, some sort of calm and order will return to the studio. I do hope so.


We did manage to get some gardening in and I nabbed a branch from our Crab Apple tree to get some photos of. It is bursting with the little apples and the colour is amazing. I will share more of this during the week.


To cap off a crazy week, this happened…Marley & Lockyer was accepted to attend the Melbourne Finders Keepers Market in April. This is huge!! I am so thankful and so overwhelmed right now, there is so much to do and only a month to do it.

If you happen to be in ol’ Melbourne town on the 5th and 6th of April, why not come down. I love meeting you all.


So, to celebrate the event, there is 20% off the Store to celebrate. All you need do is enter the code FINDERSKEEPERS when you check out with an order of AU$30 or more. This is the perfect time to grab something you have eyed off…it ends on Tuesday, so be quick!

Now, lets get to business…the winner of the giveaway is….
