Looking forward to Spring...... Lilac on my dining table


We have had the coldest days here recently with so much rain and 'snow' that I am starting to wish for Spring.  The little bulbs are starting to pop up in the garden and there is blossom on some of the trees around town.   I have been sorting through my image files this week for some reference material for a client and I came across these images that I photographed in my home last Spring.  I love lilac, isn't is the most amazing colour! 






The last couple of weeks I have been preparing my design for an event at Darling Harbour next month for one of my clients... Southern Highlands Corporate Events. Last night I hosted a gathering here in my studio to share my ideas and concept with the sponsers of the stand Milton Park, Peppers, Tertini Wines and Fountaindale Grand Manor.... just a few of some of the amazing hotels and vineyards in the Highlands.  Andrew helped me prepare a small scale display of what it will look like, complete with miniature pieces of furniture.  I will share it all with you over the next month as I build, create and produce it.  There is a lot of sewing to do, sets to make, shopping and many things to prepare.  It's still has to remain a secret until the show begins.... but if you're passing through the Southern Highlands do drop in ...especially if you can sew!!

 Wishing everyone a fabulous day!!
Namaste.... Coty

  2. Lovely lilacs! I really wish they grew this far south. Maybe one day I'll be able to see some blooming in person.

  3. Beautiful photos of your spring blooms. It is difficult to imagine that you are in winter now with spring coming and we are nicely into summer up here in the northern hemisphere. I love summer so much that I think I should live down under for the other half of the year! Blessings, Pamela

  4. Lilacs are, without question, one of the most beautiful and fabulously fragranced flowers on the face of the earth. I love them, and they look beautiful in your post! Sorry you guys are experiencing such cold, rainy weather. We're experiencing triple digit weather with high humidity levels here in the Midwest (USA). I'll trade ya! ;-) Have a great weekend, and stay warm!

  5. Oh Coty, if I lived anywhere close, I'd come do all your sewing. I'd do your cooking too. Your photos have inspired me to add lilac in the spring. It's just a delicious shade! xo marlis

  6. Hello my sweet friend. The mention of lilacs takes me back to childhood, when my mother would take my little brother and me on "tours" of her garden in the spring. Whatever was blooming always made its way to the center of the dinner table. Perhaps that's the source of my love of beautifully set tables with centerpieces comprised of fresh garden flowers.
    I'm certain your presentation was brilliant and awe-inspiring, and that your clients were as inpressed as I am at the depth of your amazing talent.

    I hope warm weather comes to you soon (as I'm wishing for a heat index here significantly below 100F!).

    XOXOXO
    Bill
