100th Post, wild about wildflowers.

Hip Hip Hooray, 100 posts today! Considering I've been blogging since 2007 it's not really that many posts. Should probably be celebrating at least 200..but hey, they say quality not quantity.

I have finished my Australian Wildflower cushion family & I must say I really love them. The prints are on the most delicious natural slubby linen & they are trimmed with a totally gorgeous cream vintage cotton pom pom braid. That braid was given to me by a friend 12 years ago, I have been so good hoarding it away, pulling it out on many occasions, but then waiting for the right moment. Everytime I use it I feel a teensy bit sad that it is getting closer to running out, but it sure is nice to see it take on a life.
Flannel Flowers, Kangaroo Paws, Wattle, Sturt Desert Peas & Grevillias just to name a few. After dropping them all over to Mooch Inside where I retail, my hubby said he was disappointed that I didn't keep one for our house. So now I have to make the big decision of which one I like the best..... easy peasy it'll be the Flannel Flower & Sturt Desert Pea cushion. I'd better hot foot it back to the shop, with a bit of luck some might sell over the week end. If you are interested in purchasing anything that I feature on my blog, just send me a message & I'll pop it in my Etsy shop for you.


I like this combo together, Waratahs, Wattle & Banksias. These two cushions feature many of the flowers that grow native to the area in which I live. I am lucky to be able to go for a walk in the bush at the end of my street & to be surrounded by such beauty.
Do you have a favourite wildflower?
