When life gets busy and hectic it is always nice to remember some earlier quiet times. Our household has been particularly busy of late but last school holidays we rented a quiet, secluded beach cabin for a few days on the beautiful East Coast of Tasmania. It was winter so we enjoyed walks on the beach, reading, sleeping, drawing and painting in our journals and eating more than we should! It was such a lovely family time together. The accommodation was thoughtfully decorated by its owner with such an aesthetic, rustic style that made us all feel creative in its nurturing space. The furniture had character and oozed 'other times and lives' and the cabin had so many beautiful found and collected treasures to enjoy.
We felt refreshed and with our batteries re-charged we were ready to return home and back to work.
Sometimes we need to get away for a short time and to be in new environments to reset our compass. We all came back from our time away with a renewed focus. There is just something about staring out to the sea and the horizon that is so sustaining and liberating.
At the moment, in our home studio, we are creating twenty-four handmade nests for a special gala event in Tasmania. We are not used to such a big order, so our tiny house is filled with twigs, vines, moss and half-made nests on every flat surface! I will share some photos in our next post.
With the year rolling on we are also thinking about what new product we may make for Christmas. We always enjoy working on new ideas at this time of year, so keep an eye out on our Instagram and shop sites over the next few months.
Best wishes to you all and thank you again for checking into our blog space.
