hello 2014

wow, I have been slack posting here, but I have excuses!
The end of last year was MENTAL.
I sold a house, renovated and opened my new shop/workspace, did lots of Design Markets, was crazy busy with online and wholesale orders for Christmas, moved back to Melbourne, renovated a bathroom..... and it just kept going......

Now everything has settled down, we had weeks away at the beach, the boys are at their new school and life is feeling pretty good.
Come by the shop if your in the area, and if I'm working inside I can let you in.

I am not going to open a 7 day a week shop again, those days are behind me, I have learnt to enjoy a simpler life.

thanks gourmet traveller February and Inside Out January issues  for including the Anya Brock plates in your fabulous magazines
