Parties, holidays and online shopping!

I can't believe how quickly October is flying by! My princess turned 1 yesterday & I find it frightening to think how quickly this year has flown. Of couse she had a special flounce made for her Birthday & I am hoping somebody got a photo of her in it! I got one on the swing but you can't see the gorgeous patterned top on it! (and at this point she was rather exhausted!) I must say our flounces are very durable. It survived the day in the park beautifully, and believe me it was definately dragged around.. Ruby was a little overwhelmed by the whole Birthday Party experience & we all had a rather early night last night.

I have searched through lots of websites over the last few weeks, which has been lots of fun, looking for girls gifts. It's such a nice change after spending years looking for boys pressies. I thought I would share a couple of them with you.

Check them out - I always love it when I find a great new website. Sometimes it's nice to buy online rather than in shops as quite often you find something a little bit different. And let's face it, quite often it's a lot easier! Sgrab a cuppa , sit down in front of the computer & shop! And while you're there naturally you should check out

Only a few days left ( and a 9 year olds birthday party tomorrow!) until school goes back and then the focus will return to the flounces. I've loved the holidays, no uniforms, lunches or homework!

We are at Mosman Festival on Sunday 25th which will be great. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

Flouncing off for now,

We're back!!

Wow, where have the last few weeks gone! It's been so busy with sales & markets that unfortunately the blog has suffered a bit. But I'm back now & ready to let you know what's happening with our flounces!

We are currently making a few changes/improvements to our website & it should be all up & running in the newer format very soon. We are expanding our site to include more information about our flounces and where you can see them and purchase them.

We have joined The Great Kids Fashion Hunt which begins in November through Kids Fashion Review. What a great website & idea. Make sure you check it out when you get a chance. and look out for flounce about.

We have also advertised on Bondville which I mentioned in an earlier blog. I love this site - Steph does a great job promoting quality Australian made products. Of course, being Australian designed and made is one of the things that makes our flounces so unique.

We have a section on our website which lists which upcoming markets we will be at - Mosman last Saturday was so wet that we decided we wouldn't even get the skirts out of the car! Sunday at St Ives was great. We managed to get a spot indoors & the day was a big success. We are travelling to Canberra in November for the Mathilda's Market which will be fantastic. We're looking forward to introducing our range to the people of Canberera & hopefully they'll love our flounces as much as Sydneysiders do.

We are also in the process of getting a retail range ready which is very exciting, and will keep you updated on our website & through our blog of our new stockists once everything is completed.

Well, fingers crossed the weather in Sydney starts improving for the school holidays and hopefully everyone has a great week.

Flouncing off for now,
