Queensland Museum

After another very successful event at my favourite bookshop in Brisbane, Riverbend Books, I left to explore the vaults of Queensland Museum. A speedy tour took me through the cultural and anthropological, the ancient, dinosaur, conchological, entomological and every other –ological you could think of! I am so excited to be working with them next year. Here are some snaps and a little insight into the 1.2million or so pieces they have at Queensland Museum.

Still-life case studies

At The Society inc. HQ the morning light (around 6.30am) is glorious. I often stop through on my way to the beach, and the light is distractingly beautiful. These are the objects that greet me at the top of the stairs.

Christmas Decorations

I love Christmas and here is a peek at my favourite decorations for this year to go with my Gypsy Caravan theme at The Society inc.!

Christmas Market at The Society inc.!

The festive season is upon us and I’m having a Traders & Bakers marche meets Christmas party to celebrate! This year I’m channeling Gypsy Caravan & am all about colour, prints, stocking stuffers, decorations, presents galore and having your fortune told at the same time! I will be launching my Gypsy Caravan reincarnation with a very appropriate streetside (unfortunately there are no rivers through Paddington to camp by) fair. All the foodies and usual suspects will be here to start the festivities with sunshine, jams & preserves, baked goods, fortune cookies (a very special kind), ceramics, buskers, fortune readers and the classic Society inc. fleamarket finds – it’s been too long!

The Society inc. will be overflowing with lots of tassles & pom poms, patterned folk baubles, felt donkeys (Santa’s new mode of transport), layers & layers of handpainted textiles, mix & match cutlery on the table, pajaki chandeliers (polish, paper & so much fun!) and screen-printed cushions & throws. I never go with the traditional Christmas theme, just celebration and an excuse to dress the house in something new. Colour is in, so embrace it and do something different! This will definitely be our most exciting market yet.
