I’m so excited! Thanks to Etsy’s #DifferenceMakesUs and #EtsySmallBusiness competition I have the opportunity to win $13000 to scale my business. If I win, the money will go towards completing my home studio, the progress has stalled so we can save money for materials, so this prize would make a dream come true!

Thanks from the bottom of my heart,
I’ve been a little quiet lately but it was for good reason: I’ve been planning my 40th (eek!) Birthday party. In true Found By Her style, I opted for a Vintage Garden Party theme. Below are some images from my big day…..
I had a marvellous time dreaming up my vision of the day and sourcing the perfect garden party decor: wool blankets for picnicking, choosing flowers early in the morning at the Brisbane Flower Markets, begging, borrowing and op-shopping picnic baskets, vintage napkins and tablecloths, old-fashioned champagne glasses and pillowcases, finding vintage fabric so my mother could sew the amazing bunting, and devising a menu, all of which was put together by my wonderful husband and mum. It all came together on the day with the help of my dad and lovely friends and family and of course my mum and Craig, who made sure everyone was fed!
A visit from Ruby the Red Ice Cream Van, playing ‘Greensleeves’ as she arrived, was the “ice-cream” on the cake!
Such a perfect day, better than I could ever have imagined, surrounded by my family and friends.
