Kinfolk magic

I've been home a few days now from my Sydney visit, and the magic still hasn't worn off.  I don't think I've quite landed back on earth.  To discover things to make, cook and do, I went to be part of the Workshop Retreat at Dickebusch and also attend the Gathering at the Kinfolk Table on Tuesday.

It's hard to put into words exactly how magical it was. But you know how Kinfolk is so soothing and calming?  That's how it was in real life, like actually stepping out of a Kinfolk Magazine into a beautiful setting filled with fun and talented people.  

From Saturday's 7:30am breakfast tour of the Eveleigh Market guided by the knowledgeable Jane Grover, through to stacking up trestle tables at 10pm at Mickey's breathtaking garden on Tuesday night, I discovered so much and loved every single moment.   

Here are some of my favourites.  I was a quite taken with all the flowers and foliage.  And the setting for dinner at The Fishermens Wharf created by Xanthe Highfield.  There are many more lovely photos on Instagram if you search #kinfolkaustralia.  And Jonathan Wherrett, who flew up as part of the Tasmanian contingent took a few snaps too :: images here.

I feel so grateful to be part of the event and very much thankful to Luisa Brimble for inviting me to be a part of something great.   Thank you Luisa for your vision, determination and sheer hard work in making this dream an inspiring and magical reality.   I hope the magic lasts a little longer.

  6. Well, I am truly envious! I have every Kinfolk journal stacked next to my bed and look at one of them at least everyday. It looks like a magical dream...just what you'd expect I guess.

    Glad you got to be a part of it. All the photos are beautiful!
