Madeit Ruffles - The Ruffle Phenomenon

Better late than never is our madeit blog this week.  We are both struggling with a 12 week term at school so our blog has been a little neglected :) Congratulations to Tina (Queen of Ruffles) from Georgie Girl who has created such a media frenzy this week when she took her stock to the Mummy Tree Markets in Brisbane.  There were ruffles galore and lots of eager fans who had travelled from far and wide to get their hands on some ruffly goodness.  Here at AnK we were delighted to spot some of our very own fans on the news coverage wearing some AnK  and M2M Georgie Girl pieces. Ohhhh so cute.

Frayed, ripped but Ohhh so gorgeus.

In my blog surfing this morning I come across this very beautiful blog from Australia (which I love when they are 'local') Mrs A in the Cove.  She has given me the most amazing idea of what to do behind my daughters bed.  I had plans of hanging a curtain up behind it.  I even have the fabric but haven't had the chance to make it yet.
But when I saw this I have changed my mind.  I think it will add a whole lot of colour and be a bit whimsy as well and it is same colours that I have in her bedroom.
Can't wait to go to town and pick up some more fabric!!

Mrs A has used it in the most beautiful party table.  Check out her blog for some other fantastic party ideas.
