Well bravo us, it has been a huge couple of weeks and everyone has been working very hard to get everything done. We have been busy getting our samples for Christmas ready and into production, Spring orders have rolled in and are almost finished and lots of new stock has arrived.

More of these fabulous cockades and rosettes arrived this week and we are just putting the final touches on them. Many of them are made from French antique ribbons, this one features a Victorian period French passementerie motif.

We are so excited to announce the arrival of the very first pieces of a collaborative range of jewellery created exclusively for l'uccello by jeweller Vikki Kassioras. Titled l'uccello collect, this range of jewellery is made up of one of pieces, made from various pieces of my collection of antique and vintage beads, charms and other fixings.

Beads collected from different periods are carefully strung, some of the pieces feature knotting between the beads and all clasps and hooks are sterling silver, each piece is unique.

Each piece is presented with a hand made card made from Victorian period paper ephemera with a brief list of each unique piece's components on the back.

We have also had a lovely big shipment of these gorgeous paper goods arrive, vintage style reproductions - so charming.

New Sajou stock  is also in, including these divine new designs in their range of thread winder cards. 

We stock the original antique linen thread by the company Conscrit featured on these new cards, the box on the left is part of our collection.

Most exciting of all we are now the exclusive Australian stockist of this brilliant book on vintage French thread cards and reels by the creator of Sajou, Frederique Crestin Billet. It is full of the most wonderful images of an extensive array of antique packaging, a must have for collectors of these type of things.

If you happen to be around today you may see us waving a few yellow ribbons from the balcony, it is the parade for Cadel Evans at lunch time, we are so excited and can't wait to wave our ribbons and call out Bravo!
