Off To Sydney...

Nate Berkus


I'm off to Sydney for a couple of days to find some treasures for clients and for Black & Spiro. I'm also heading to Michelle Adams' seminar which I am very much looking forward to. I'll be back in a few days. In the meantime check out this cute vintage suitcase Natural Home has brought back to life using one of my favourite Schumacher fabrics! How gorgeous is this?!

Great photo. I've been thinking about doing something like this to house my children's burgeoning dress-ups collection.
Thanks for the idea!

Anna, have a great trip! I was hoping to come across the ditch for the show, but couldn't. I would love to be filled in on Michelle's eco chic decorating tips when you get back!

Hi Anna,
Love love love your blog, if you are around Paddington in Sydney please visit my shop Ruby Slipper... its on William St, i would love to meet you- your blog is such an inspiration! x

Anna, make sure you go to The Society Inc in Paddington - you will love it. Also, there is a collectables fair at Wentworth Park on the first Sunday of each month which is certainly worth visiting. (It's at the Greyhound Race Track). Another favourite (but expensive) would be Chuck and Bob in Danks Street. Have Fun!

BTW, I am going to try something like that on some vintage suitcases I picked up for $3.00 for 2...thanks for the idea.

Anna Spiro said...

Hi Everyone - for those of you asking - yes I have removed my blog roll as I am re-creating it and re-organising it. Hope it doesn't cause too much trouble. I will be adding the new {revised} blog roll within the next couple of weeks.
Thanks!

Anna - I did pillows in the Chenonceau pattern for my store a few months ago and just like the little bids in the print.. they flew off the shelves! I just ordered more but haven't decided what to do with it yet. The suitcase is VERY inspiring!
Thx

ps - I havent been by your blog in a little while. It still looks great!
