You Make Me Smile With My Heart
by petal & pins
weeks months we’ve been busy preparing for petal & pins debut at our first ever trade fair next week in Sydney and if that wasn’t excitement enough, tomorrow we have our first design market appearance for 2016 at The Barn Market.
Being the day before Valentine’s Day there is sure to be a little love in the air and I’ve been making paper ephemera love tokens to sell along with the Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe cards and prints.
I chose our beautiful Elliot Erwitt’s Paris book to style a photo with. On a trip to Venice a few years ago we saw a wonderful exhibition of this famous photographer’s work at the La Casa Dei Tre Oci gallery on the island of Guidecca.
My love tokens have various little salutations, some romantic, some cheeky!
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day I dedicate this post to Mr Petal & Pins – as Ella Fitzgerald sang in My Funny Valentine – ‘you make me smile with my heart’.
Best of luck at both events Sandra!
Thanks so much Chez – looking forward to both, bit nervous about the stamina needed for the trade fair – it goes for 4 days 9 to 7 the first night and 9 to 5 the rest!
Enjoy your weekend x
Whew! I hope you have someone who can give you a break now and then? Sounds like a marathon…
