Elkhorn's Melbourne intro

Hello Elkhorn friends! I have been missing you all...
Things have been very quite here on the Elkhorn blog, with my recent move to Melbourne. You could say Elkhorn is having a little holiday, taking time to settle in. So you may not hear too many updates over the next few weeks but I hope to get back into the full swing of things, very soon. I have many new inspiring things to share! 
My first week in Melbourne has been very full and exciting. On a personal level, I have been made to feel sooo welcome already. It just feels so right! 
Before I left for Melbs, my friend Jaclyn Carlson from Little Paper Trees, was sweet enough to interview me for her column with the inspiring Creative Women's Circle, it was a great little intro to the creative community here which I can't wait to be a part of! Thanks Jaclyn for thinking of me, I truly enjoy reading your stories. 
You can read the full interview here.
Take care everyone, I'll be in touch soon xx

Piece Together!

I am so excited about our newest stockist Piece Together located in Woolloongabba, Brisbane! It's a gorgeous store very recently expanded to new street level premises, in the most lovely nook of the Gabba. There is so much happening at Piece Together, you can just feel the creative energy bursting, from these photos. They also have a diverse range of workshops, from Stitch an Bitch, sewing classes & weaving.. all sorts really. I'm sure you could spend the whole day there... Check out their list of workshops!

I can't wait to drop in on my next visit to Brissy! It's so cool seeing the Elkhorn Ruffle scarves displayed so nicely!

I want this whole outfit! It's too gorgeous. Thanks to the lovely ladies, Tammy & Jennine of Piece Together, for stocking Elkhorn and making our scarves look so at home! I hope they are a super seller for you!

Bon voyage!

Hello! You may remember in my last post, I mentioned a road trip on the horizon for Elkhorn and myself. Well there's just one destination in mind, Melbourne! It's a no return journey making Melbourne my new home! It's time to spread my wings(as corny as that sounds) and start a new adventure. Breathe in the city air(cough cough) and get amongst all the other creative types! Sadly this means I will be saying goodbye(for now) to the beautiful Central Coast which I have called home for the last 2 and a half years.
So this Saturday there will be a 'Bon voyage Studio Sale' to send off some Elkhorn designs to homes around the coast. Just so you don't forget us. If your a local or feel like a little road trip yourself, I would love to see you. Please come say HI! The sale starts 8am and finishing up about 1pm. The studio is located just near Woy Woy, at 407 Orange Grove Road, Blackwall. Please email me if you would like further directions. If you are keen enough to be coming from Sydney it's about 1.15hrs drive and from Newcastle it's about 1.3hrs. Either way it's worth the visit! I promise. You could even make a day of it and have lunch at Woy Woy Fishermen's Wharf, which is a must! That's where I'll be later in the day. The sun is meant to be shining, so it should be a fab day!

Before I head off I would love to share a few things that I will miss the most on the Central Coast...
In no particular order

The Wharf, Fishermen's Wharf Woy Woy. They have been so welcoming to me, even letting me use their gorgeous restaurant to shoot the latest Elkhorn range. 

Wharves, wharves and more wharves. Have provided me with endless inspiration, and tranquil spot to hang out and have a coffee.

The Beach! Bliss

Bush tracks

Putt Putt's! Who would of thought they would be so photogenic

Elkhorn Mother... Sadly I can't take her with me. She has been my rock, offering endless support to me and Elkhorn! She will be most missed!

The token Pelican. Always managing to get into my product shots.

Studio visitors

The cute factor triples in spring

Dreamy Boat houses

and last but not least, time spent kayaking with dad and friends.
I will miss it all but look forward to new adventures in Victoria and exploring new coast lines, and bush tracks! Let me know if you have any must see places, that you think I'd love!

Good Bye tranquil Coast. You have truly been the best place to relax, reflect and create in peace, all things Elkhorn. Thanks for having me. You will always be home xx

On the Road

I absolutely love the monthly look-books that Poppytalk Handmade put together. This month's theme 'On the Road' captures the essence of Summer, getting out and exploring. This would have to be one of my favorite themes... there's nothing not to love about this look book! And of course if you flipped through about half way you'll find Elkhorn ;)

Browsing 'On the Road' reminded me of my road trip I did last year with a great friend. We squeezed many kilometers into just 2 weeks, driving from Perth up north to Monkey Mia and then back again, going further south to Margaret River(which is divine by the way). I would have to say it was definitely a very scenic trip with long long stretches of road(with nothing in between and no sign of good coffee)... which is what you'd expect from this coastline but the long drive didn't seem to faze us. With some great music, silly banter, ever changing landscapes and exploring the 'unknown' it was a great adventure in itself! I've wanted to share some of the photos for ages... but you can imagine how many photos I took. But this has prompted me to finally share a few...


It was such a diverse trip, it's hard to some it up over a few photos. But I think it shows how beautiful WA is... it left me wanting more! Love to hear about your road trips! I have a little solo one coming up soon... a big adventure for me xx

Etsy Winter Loving

It's been a while since I put together an Etsy Treasury of my favourite designs. For those who don't know what a Treasury is, it's a Etsy thing where members curate a shopping gallery with their favourite Etsy designs, bringing them together in a theme for everyone to see. It's a great way to help promote Etsy sellers. I try and do one at least every season... hence 'Winter nesting'.
This collection is prominently Australian which is so cool! So many talented EtsyAU sellers. The Aussie Etsy shops have been growing which is so great to see! Although I do still have a few fave international sellers thrown into the mix. If you see something you love then make sure you click here to take travel further into their shops! xx
P.S how cute are those Squirrel's spooning ;)
