Recap of Homely Creatures at Life Instyle Sydney

Wow. Things have been so busy leading up to and following Life Instyle Sydney that this is the first opportunity I have had to just take a breath and blog about it. For those who don't know, Life Instyle is a fabulous Australian lifestyle trade fair where thousands of retailers converge to buy lots of new pretty things for their lush stores and boutiques. What an adventure! I took off from Melbourne with everything I needed for my little First Instyle stand squeezed into two suitcases and a duffel bag. Things did not get off to a good start, as...
