I was minding my own business today.
Just schlepping around the House of Flora.
Setting up little fabric vignettes.
Admiring the new walk-in.
Noticing the small things.
Wondering where I was going to put the last of the Christmas decorations.
Putting up a few artefacts from Venice.
Made in China.
Zhu-zhuing with flower corsages.
Admiring my glitter handiwork.
Tidying up my twenty year old cotton reel holder.
Not particularly ergonomic.
But an original one-of-a-kind.
Made by a fellow chalkface worker.
Wondering how I could put this little swan into a headpiece.
Procrastinating about putting away mess.
When suddenly I had news!
Flora's in the Queensland's biggest newspaper's fashion editorial.
The Courier Mail
Flora's frippery styled with pyjamas and ice-creams.
On roller-skates, no less!
Here's the piece back in the studio under progress.
To celebrate I cut loose in the kitchen.
Orange and apricot cupcakes with a cream cheese frost.
I'm suitably chuffed.
Loved up or not, what are you doing for Valentine's Day?
