Guess who's in Cleo magazine???

Surprise... Look who's hanging out on page 180 of the latest issue (Jan 2010) of Cleo Magazine!!!

Since spotting my home featured on Made By Girl blog, Lifestyle features editor Joanna Barry has been busy putting together a page around the things I do and make! In an issue bursting with style - well it was curated by fashion designer Alice McCall - CLEO invites you to "have a perve through the window of the coolest pads from here and OS (minus the AVO)".

A big thank you to Joanna, who did a lovely job of it - and choosing some fabulous "Get the Look" items all of which I (ahem) have to get!!! (I really really want that cutlery now!!!). And my gratitude also goes to Jennifer Ramos (Made By Girl) for pointing the way! xxx

But wait, there's another fabulous reason to grab a copy... on page 32, our very own Lady Smaggle (part-time Canberra girl) shows us another fabulous fashion DIY!

And if you're visiting Canberra's Got Style for the first time, welcome! Put your feet up with a cuppa and check out the archives! If you are looking for more about my home, click on the "casa ribena" tag. If you are looking for my Tango & James shop, there's a link at the top of the side bar, and if you are looking for other brilliant Canberran designers check out the designers tag.

Polka Luka: Summer sale and exhibition

I've mentioned my adoration of the work of Polka Luka... now's your chance to grab Christmas presents (or something for yourself!), with a hot sale and exhibition on...

Says Alex, "I will be selling my current range as well as pieces from my previous ranges, as well as a variety of seconds, samples, and sales stock!"

Awesome! Check it out at The Front Gallery in Lyneham (right near Tilley's) from Thursday night.
