homegrown style ...

In this gorgeous kit you won't mind who arrives unannounced on baking day! Look fabulous at all times in the kitchen with the Mozi lilly pilly apron and oven mitt. Mozi is Melbourne's homegrown brand for designer lifestyle products and they have most categories covered.

If you love your laptop give it a beautiful new home ... the red wren neoprene laptop sleeve is one of our favourites. Mozi has stockists around Australia but very conveniently you can now shop on line and have your purchases arrive at the doorstep. Too easy.

Mozi will be at Magnolia square this May with a new range of their signature style goodies including luxurious home fragrances, over sized comfy screen-printed cushions and some clever little stationary additions. Come and meet Camilla & Olivia, the clever sister team behind the designs.

heaven is a biscuit ...

Michel's Fine Biscuit Co of Castlemaine are sticklers for old fashioned baking methods. Small batches and careful hand packaging ensure these delicious morsels retain their fine character & integrity. Only the best quality ingredients find their way to the bowl to make for an outstanding overall biscuit experience!

Flavours are combined in clever fashion such as ginger and lemon myrtle, organic peppermint oil with lots of chocolate, pistachios and macadamias with more Belgian chocolate, figs drenched in Cointreau combined with lots of dark Belgian chocolate. Get the picture.

Michel will be at Magnolia Square May 29-31 surrounded by her heavenly range of bikkies. Put some in the pantry and impress your next afternoon tea guest! A website is coming soon.

The Essential Ingredient, Prahran Market, South Yarra

distinctly insync ...

The bold geometric shapes of Melbourne's InSync Design first take place on paper and are then constructed from modern materials using techniques old and new. The carefully constructed pieces become bangles, brooches and earrings. It is the strong use of colour & form in this range that stands it apart.

Designers Jane Barwick and Iris Saar Isaac's have a loyal following and are highly regarded for their work both in Australia and overseas. In January this year they exhibited at Top Drawer in London. Their pieces are available at Counter at Craft Victoria and other stockists Australia wide.

InSync Design will be at Magnolia Square in May, 29-31 at the Malvern Town Hall.

favourite things ...

Deck baby out in vintage style with special pieces by New Zealand label Monsters in Mittens. The inaugural range draws inspiration from knitting patterns from the 1950's, 60's and 70's.

Heirloom shawls, ribbed pilchers and pram coats hand knitted in organic merino wool will remind you of your own babyhood. We love that these beautiful garments & accessories are the handy work of a collective of knitters all around New Zealand.

Monsters in Mittens have a lovely website and yes, you can buy on line. You might even see them some time soon at Magnolia Square ....

BiNTH & beautiful ...

no sacrificing style ...

Lend stylish support to the environment the next time you purchase a gift. Blossom Creations founder Erin Corvisy felt that eco friendly products were either too expensive, not stylish enough or too hard to find so she went about establishing a sustainable giftware, stationery & homewares business. Visit a stockist or purchase on line. We love the animal collection gift cards ...
