Just in case you thought......

Just in case you thought we were lounging around on the couch peeling another grape here is a quick rewind and replay on the last week or so.

The handsome fellow above is the new man in our lives at l'uccello, he is our new gift certificate, doesn't he look pleased with himself?! He arrived just in time, and we look forward to seeing the lucky girls who received one for Christmas.

Before I go on with the rest of the list, please note our
 Summer Sale
will officially start on Thursday but many of our Christmas items are already on sale with 50% off.

A little Christmas cheer

Fabulous new delivery of cockades and rosettes needed to be unpacked and displayed.

Flowers and food shopping at South Melbourne market on the way to work, Christmas lunch was delicious and the table looked lovely (even if I do say so myself)

In the middle of all the Christmas excitement the door was finally fixed, now when you visit this is the entrance you will see so just waltz right on in! Thank you Santa!!

The door can now remain open to this small device

Just before Christmas we managed to get the entire production room and store room moved to our fabulous new digs on the 4th floor. This great new space is big enough for a separate production area and a great sized class room.

Ever since we have been sorting a small mountain of textiles, props and tiles and doing a bit of a make over on the rooms. This is the underneath side of a mosaic table top that I did years ago, I am modifying the boarders so it will fit the new bench I am building to house my personal stash.

I also tiled the old cupboard top with remnants from my mosaic days

Lovely stacks of fabric ready to go

I built the new work benches and bought a comfy chair. The old room was far from comfortable so I hope the new aspect with lots of natural light will help production run smoother

Lovely tea rose pink for the feature wall in the class room

Selecting which fabrics to go where, these two are going to be curtains to protect my collection from the dust and UV light.

Just to the thing to get the new year started perfectly, the arrival of a big box full of lovely millinery flowers, leaves, cherries and velvet strawberries.


If you add Christmas trading in the shop and the change over of windows at Kozminskys and Kleins Perfumery you could say there has been a bit going on at l'uccello.



  1. Happy New Year to you Kim. Looks like you've been having fun setting up the new work area! Love the Gentleman on the gift vouchers.

  2. Wishing you every happiness in 2012.

  3. Mr Gift Voucher is FABULOUS! I like the twinkle in his eye.

  4. After looking at your website I have an urge to join you at one of your
    craft lessons. Sewing or mosaic I'm not quite sure. This coming from
