Furnitex and Absolutely Beautiful Things.....

Hello everyone,
I've been in Melbourne this week checking out Furnitex Design and Decoration after an invitation to host their media lunch. It was a great fair with loads of lovely treasures and very interesting industry seminars - one of which was given by US based textile and interior designer Kathryn Ireland - who shared her inspirations and a snippet into her very fabulous (and celebrity filled life!). The other seminar was given by interior designer Anna Spiro of Black and Spiro - the very talented creator of the blog Absolutely Beautiful Things - one of my very favourites. It was fascinating to hear Anna's insights into the blogging world and I got a lot of tips to help me on my way. Most of all, I was moved by Anna's passion - for work, her blog and life in general. Anna, it was a pleasure to meet you and listen to you speak. You truly are absolutely beautiful...

Well worth the trip. And the weather in Melbourne was lovely - sunny and crisp - with winter coats lining the streets. It's great to get off the farm and see a little sophistication for a change.
