art piece gallery is the latest venture of well known cookery writer nadine abensur. last week i had the pleasure of meeting the gorgeous nadine, who has created such an inspirational space in mullumbimby.

with a passion for living with beautiful things everyday, nadine has created a beautifully curated collection. she has an extraordinary eye and pulls together such stunning, creative exhibitions. art piece gallery is most definitely “a focal point for artists and lovers of art, as well as national and international collectors”.

art piece is an inspiration to this gorgeous town, supporting and promoting the work of local artists, both those with an established reputation and those taking their first steps into the world of exhibiting.

anna lennon of cuban pink is a lifelong lover of all things vintage. anna finds enjoyment in sourcing vintage fabric, and giving them a second chance in life as part of her beautiful designs… she is also one of the most beautiful women i have ever met…

 

massuri is the fashion label designed by the incredibly talented and humble designer galit massuri. every massuri masterpiece is made with love by talented locals and all her designs feature natural fibres such as cotton and silk.

i met the most lovely helle for the first time this weekend. helle creates the most beautiful crocheted items. from necklaces, to underwater sea life {coral, anemones…}, to sweet, whimsical headwear creations {like the one she is wearing in the top two photo’s}.

sang the bird: grater bowls

i’ve just added some beautiful small ceramic grater bowls to the shop. they are so divine.

i plan to use mine to grate garlic. i can then add olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt. the perfect dressing in one bowl.

they are also perfect for grating nutmeg! i’m totally chuffed at how well this beautifully simple design works.

{graters are made by hand by the lovely julia of formbar. each bowl is is approximately 4.5cm high by 11cm wide}.

Happy Monday and here’s to hopes for an awesome week…

much love to you all
