Fresh new look at home

I recently had the pleasure of a photographer and a journalist being in my home for an upcoming article (which I will post about once published). This gave me a great excuse for updating a few items in my home, spending hours styling it and putting out lots of lovely flowers. It was nice to have a pretty, clean and photo worthy home, even if only for a few hours! I took a few shots myself before it all returned to the normal mess. You can view the rest of the images on my flickr stream here or my pinterest board here.

Hello! This weekend Sweet William will be exhibiting at Supergraph in Melbourne at the Royal Exhibition Building from Friday the 14th of February until Sunday the 16th. This looks set to be an amazingly creative event, with all sorts of graphic designer and illustrators showing their wares. We have a large booth and will be selling A2 size prints for the very first time. As always I like to have new and fresh work to showcase so here are a few shots of some new things I have been working on. If you are unable to make this event, these prints will be available in our etsy shop very soon.

A fresh new start for 2014

I love my home and I am house proud but keeping things tidy is not one of my strengths. House work is an ongoing challenge for me. I felt it would be a good idea to face the New Year with a tidy home and embrace my my New Year's resolution of ' no excuses' so, I decided to spend a few days sorting things out. " Put away, give away or throw away" was my mantra. I have managed to sort out half the house so far and will continue with the rest of it over the school holidays. I already feel so much better for having spent some time getting things in order. Although it is pretty boring way to start the New Year, it an immensely satisfying one. I wonder how long the tidy home will last though...? Here are some of my Instagram shots, tracking my progress.

It's a wrap for 2013!

All our markets are done, all our orders have been posted out and now it is time to rest. My family and I are very much looking forward to camping in the bush and along the beach for a much of the holiday season - we can't wait!

Sweet William has had a wonderful 2013! Thanks for all your lovely support over the  past 12 months and we will see you back here in 2014!

My lovely Christmas decoration (from my instagram feed) were picked up from poppies for grace. Wishing you all much joy! Paula and Shelley xxx

Renegade wrap up

Shelley and Sweet William had a great time in London at Renegade, despite the rain and 3 hour tube trips! There were loads of amazing stall holders and Sonia from Layoutlines has done a lovely post all about the market here. These are Sonja's brilliant photos of the Sweet William stall. The next market for Sweet William will be back in Melbourne at Federation Square - Markit on Sunday the 24 of November. Pop in and say Hi!

My peonies at home on instagram

Painted Peony available in our Etsy shop

From my Instagram feed

There is something about Peonies that just make me go weak at the knees... I think they are the most beautiful flower! I recently bought a big bunch for my home which led to a few instagram shots which led to another Peony illustration joining the other Sweet William Peony illustrations. I apologise, I seem to be besotted!
