Ladies of Leisure



This past Sunday I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Josie of Frances Baker at one of the sweetest establishments in town... The Hopetoun Tearooms. Her lovely blog has been one of my very favourites for quite some time, so I was delighted that we could meet in person.

Her beautiful photography, craftiness and thought provoking posts send me into a swoon and I had the most wonderful time with her. Having a lovely new friend to talk craft, sewing, treats and tea with is a dream!

We spoke of many projects that we plan on working on together and she is even going to join me in the studio for a spot of frock sewing (super exciting) I enjoyed myself so much that I completely forgot to take any photographs... Which is a shame as Josie looked cute as a button! However I did manage to rustle up some photographs of Collins St in the early 1900s..

PS- Josie and her sister are the creators of the very lovely zine Apple Cart, jam packed with creativity and sweetness, it will be sure to bring a smile to your face and make you feel all warm inside. If your an out of towner you can order a free copy online, these gals have thought of everything!
