Thank you to everyone who came to visit us on the weekend. A fun time was had by all!


It seems everyone’s moving to the country. To celebrate their recent permanent relocations to central Victoria, Melbourne furniture maker and landscaper Greg Hatton is opening his studio workshop, the Newstead Butter Factory, with another recent relocator Cathy Hope of Douglas & Hope fame, on the first weekend of December. We would love you to come out to Newstead and not only do you get the chance to meet them both, but you can have a sticky beak around this fantastic old butter factory and check out their latest creations.

Greg’s hand made furniture pieces are generally made to order although there will be plenty to see and buy on the day. Cathy has just released a new range of beautiful melamine plates and along with her signature quilts and cushions you never know you may even cross someone’s name off your Christmas list!

There will be tea and decent coffee available and kiwi scones…apparently they’re better than ours? Local bullboar snags on the barbie and Sean McMahons Western Union playing at 2pm Sunday

Another stunning Katie Marx wedding Greg and I assisted with New Years Eve at Carousel on the lake at Albert Park. Katie and I are the cheeky stand-in-brides!! More images and info at The Style Co.

We were commissioned by Damm Fine Foods to make several items for this beautiful wedding at Flinders on the Mornington Peninsula back at the beginning of December. We made the trestle tables for the food with the hand drawn signs, smooth willow ball lighting, 50m of bunting, the registry signing table and chair. We also supplied the green metal chairs along with quite a few other items for styling the event. I assisted the always Fabulous Katie Marx with the flowers!
