Once again it has been a long time between posts! I often spend a lot of time on instagram taking pretty photos. If any followers out there are on instagram look us up! @whiskerslane
We have new stockists in New Zealand, Canberra, Nelson Bay and more :) We have new Designs being released in the next few months and I have a big personal trip to Europe in the next few weeks.
Here are a few snaps of what we've been doing :)

Things have been a little quiet at Whiskers Lane HQ since we've had a lot going on personally. We had one low but mostly highs :)
Our family cat Loddy who was only 5 years old got very sick with cancer & we made the very hard decision to let him go to cat heaven. He was there in the beginning when Whiskers Lane started & would often watch me sew at the sewing machine. He will be missed. RIP Velodya
As Maid-of-Honour for my only big sister's wedding I was in charge of planning her Hen's night which involved making accessories for her to wear & matching brooches for all the ladies. We did a cocktail making course which as you can see she enjoyed :)
Next up was planning my sisters bridal/cellar tea party which was definitely alot of fun! We had many, many sweets, a chocolate fountain, 7 types of tea, champagne, a male topless waiter & games :)
After all the planning, creating and a long awaited wedding (almost 11 years) my sister & her husband said 'I do' to each other with their closest family & friends in FIJI !!
There was fire dancers and fireworks!
This was the amazing resort
My coral finds were amazing.
I'd like to be back here
Fijian people are so friendly, warm & talented
I made these rolled fabric flower wristlet to go with my bridesmaid dress
Phew! What an amazing month! Now back to creative Whiskers Lane goodness :) I hope you all have been happy & healthy!

What an amazing weekend we had in Melbourne for Finders Keepers! I only wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed right by Brunswick Street and I cannot believe I have never visited this delightful street before. For those that haven't been - it is definitely worth a look see. There are so many cute, quirky stores, cafes, restaurants, bars and more!
At the market it was so nice to put a face to a name meeting lovely fellow stall holder Emma from Red Revival.We also said hello to Sydney friends Alfalfa, The Storybook Rabbit and Made590. Sophie from That Vintage was there from Tasmania :)
Although I didn't get too much time to look around a few favourite stalls that I loved were Stampel, Oktoberdee and Owl Know How
We do appreciate everyone who stopped by to say hello, bought a handmade design, took a business card or simply walked by and smiled at our goodies :)
The lead up to Finders Keepers kept us busy making, gluing, crocheting, sewing, pouring & more!
Mr Foxy Teapot Cosy made his debut and we sold out of him within a few hours! The lovely Tricia (mum) is busy crocheting more so we can get them online soon for you all that couldn't make the market :)
Cute as a button rings were quite a hit. I collected vintage frames and painted them all for our market display.
Vintage Doily Brooches
Our market stall with all the colourful goodies
Hand-embroidered Woodland Brooches - Mr and Mrs Deer made their debut
Catmouse Teapot Cosy was loved by many. Catmouse is available online now.

Whiskers Lane will be having our first interstate market stall in Melbourne in 6 sleeps time! The Finders Keepers market will be held in the grand Royal Exhibition Building near the beautiful Carlton Gardens. The market will be held on the Friday night (with a bar & food) and all day Saturday the 21st :)
We will have some new designs making their debut appearance at this special market. Might be a good chance to get your mum a mother's day pressie.

Victoria's Gleaners Inc is my newest stockist! The lovely owner Liz is holding The Doily Exhibition in her store starting 16th March. She has asked doily lovers to submit "reinvented doilies". I decided to add some whiskery embroidery to a doily and turn it into a wall hanging. My piece will also be available to purchase at the exhibition. I have included some other goodies making their way to Liz's store too :)

The lovely Rebecca from Naughty Shorts is holding vintage fabric giveaways and I was lucky enough to win one! I think she is doing more giveaways so keep an eye out over on her blog
The bundle of beautiful fabrics arrived so gorgeously wrapped! Thank you so much Rebecca :)
I'm inspired to make myself my first ever quilt !

I have been busy this week trying out new candles. Not just using gorgeous vintage cups but also trying vintage planters and ceramic items too.
Tricia has also made some new teapot cosies. Kitty cat or Catmouse as we call them sometimes because they look like both animals :) Keep an eye out for one a little bit foxy too...
I finally have uploaded Fabric Rings - which haven't been online for a while. New bows, earrings, ceramic items and more. You can view all the new goodies here :)
Hope you are all having a lovely week !
