We have made a recent triumphant purchase. The breathtaking book by Karen McCartney, Perfect Imperfect.
Along with Sharyn Cairns (photographer) and Glen Proebstel (stylist), Karen McCartney has created a wonderfully warm, thought-provoking book that we are sure to treasure and adore for years to come.
The photography, styling and words come together to form a delicious combination of texture, tone, history, character, personal discoveries and journeys - all referencing the "beauty of accident, age and patina".
Please welcome to the stage...
Brand new day
One of the final stages to finishing our hardwood products is to brand them with our abbreviated name, M.A.DE.
This is done using a propane gas torch to heat the aluminium brand that we created ourselves. It only takes a few seconds.
It takes less than that to burn yourself if you're not paying attention when someone is taking your photo :)
After leaving Brisbane, Queensland and a pretty steady all-year-round temperature, it is so refreshing to enjoy all four seasons at our current high-altitude location.
A recent order for a set of Personalised Hardwood Bookends finally included a letter “Z”. Do you know what this means?
Well, it means that we have now possibly* made every letter of the alphabet as a monogrammed heirloom gift!!! Hooray!!
*Side note: We did say “possibly”. Best check the archives to confirm above statement for factual accuracy. Memory is hazy on the “U” and “X” status :)
