Birthday Present!


During my recent weekend adventures down South, I discovered a new to me shop called One Wise Owl in Berry. Just beautiful! Amongst my MANY purchases there, I bought this gorgeous limited edition print.

 I attached it to a vintage clipboard that I bought at a garage sale, added some ribbon and Voila! mum's birthday present was done. She is lucky I had nothing else to give her, I really didn't want to part with it!

I highly recommend a visit to One Wise Owl. They are also located in Pyree and have a website too. Lovely!

Happy Monday,

PS The cake is no more. Yum! Yum!

Hello everyone - is it already nearly Wednesday? Where does the time go!

My "baby" boy has just started an after school job in a cafe at our local shopping centre which has a florist nearby. As I walked past the florist after delivering said son to work, I noticed that they were selling beautiful bunches of poppies. How could I resist? Here are some pictures of them in a fantastic milk glass vase that I bought at a garage sale a little while back.

Aren't they lovely? Just like a bunch of sunshine. And the price of  happiness? Just $2.95 or $3.95 if you include the cost of the vase!

Happy Tuesday!

Just a quick note on the shop opening. I am running a little behind schedule due to work commitments and I probably won't have things up and running until next week. My apologies if this causes any inconvenience but please feel free to email me if you have any questions or requests.

Fridge Fix!

My fridge has been a source of angst for me for sometime now. As you can see in the picture, it is COVERED in stuff making it look very messy. Moreover, things have a tendency to fall off if the door is opened or closed too quickly. Further adding to this is that everything you see in the picture has sentimental value or celebrates some event or milestone within the family. I am very attached to all the different bits and pieces. What to do?

GET OVER IT! I finally realised that I could move forward and live without the fridge clutter. I have filed it all away so I still have it, I just don't need to see it everytime I see the fridge and neither does anybody else. I must admit that it looks so much better, even though it will take a little getting used to.

What do you think?

Happy Monday!

Hello and welcome to a brand new week! The weather has been lovely here and I am already thinking of Spring. I can't wait -  I am really not a fan of the cold weather.

Made by me, StephieB!

This is just a quick post to let my Mathilda's Market visitors (and everyone else of course!) that I plan to have my online shop up and running by early next week. I am so looking forward to sharing my goodies with you all and I will be introducing some new designs as well in the lead up to Christmas. There, I said it, the "C" word!

Take care,

This weekend...

was spent preparing for and styling a party last night.

It went really well. Everyone was enthusiaistic about all the decorating touches which is always a good thing. I really love the satisfaction of standing back and looking at how it all comes together on the night. It makes all the hard work worth it! These are a few photos that I took before the night started.


I am now enjoying a bit of a lazy Sunday afternoon before the new working week kicks in. 


I hope whatever you got up to, your weekend was fun too!

See you soon,

Mathilda's Markets!

A big "hello!' to everyone that I met at Mathilda's Markets today. It is so exciting to see all of the amazing talent out there. I had a great day. The atmosphere was happy and fun and it is nice to get feedback from people about your work, especially when it is so positive! I know that all my creations have found their way to happy new homes in Sydney and some are off to New Zealand as well.

Have a happy Sunday evening and thanks again for stopping by!
