What Happened Last Time on La Quaintrelle: The Round-up
What have we been up to in the past little while over here at LQ? Well a better question might be: what haven't we been up to!
Living Wreath Workshop
We celebrated the coming of spring with our green goddess guru, Trinity, with a Living Wreath Workshop. Many of you may be familiar with the Living Wreath workshops we host with Trinity during the winter holidays and how beautiful they are. Well, these spring wreaths are no exception!
What exactly is a living wreath? Well I can't give all of Trinity's secrets away, but we learned all about the Japanese style planting called Kokedama. Kokedama involves wrapping earth and a plants roots in moss so that, essentially, it can be planted freely anywhere...even on a wreath. Trinity put her own spin on it, and we used beautiful ivy and succulents. Not to mention the air plants we threw in for good measure.
You know Trinity is an excellent guide through the whole process just by seeing how beautiful each individual wreath is as it goes out the door. And that's the amazing thing. Even though everyone is given the access to all the same supplies, each wreath is entirely unique to the maker! Everyone left with a smile on their face! :)
Ground and Grow Workshop
Online and in store, you may have noticed the pretty little macrame wall hangings we have hanging about. Each one was hand knotted by our own local Verna MacLean of Macrame by Verna.
We teamed up with Verna for a gentle and relaxing workshop. We started with a gentle twenty minute vinyasa flow. We then sat on our mats, and Verna led us through the knotting of our very own macrame plant hanger.
Trinity then joined us, and everyone got to choose and plant their very own baby ivy. Each freshly planted ivy fit snugly into their new home.
Everyone left contented and proud of their home decor projects. The true test of a successful workshop! And each plant hanger was gorgeous in its own right!
Mother's Day Pop Up at Creatives' Loft
You've probably heard already how three of our favorite photog industry ladies have teamed up and began sharing an office space in downtown Sydney. If you haven't, you should go check them out! Right now. I'll wait.
They opted for the perfect name for their space: Creatives' Loft. It's a small space, but it is filled with light and inspiration. These ladies are not only working out of this space, they are sharing it with all other creatives and boss babes by hosting workshops and pop-up shops.
It was a no brainer when they asked us to participate in their Mother's Day Pop Up this past month. We packed up all our mom faves and made the trek over to the other side of the water. We had an amazing day! It was so good to spread our wings, and spend some time in another exciting location. We got to see so many of our favorite faces, and some that we don't get to see as often.
We look forward to seeing what these boss babes get up to next!
