When you get your hands on a copy of our fête Winter Issue – released in newsagents tomorrow – you will love the story on Rhonda Mason and her family. Photographed by Trish Chong from Tealily Photography, their story and their home is heartwarming and inspiring. Rhonda – creator of the popular Pink Ronnie blog and Trish have now teamed up on a new project. Life Captured is an intensive memory keeping and photography workshop. With a philosophy that rings true with us here at fête. Their aim is to help people create memories that are simple, beautiful and tangible with a real and honest photography style, helping people learn the skills and gain the resources to document their lives in the same way. The Life Captured workshop offers a combination of skills teaching both the technical and emotional side of documentary photography, including editing and work flow through to journal methods and memory keeping systems. The first sold out workshop will be held in Sydney in August, however with plans for many more in the future contact either of the girls at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
With our continuing love of all things copper I was excited to see the exquisite range of Tom Dixon copper pieces now available at Safari Living. Perhaps someone could buy me this Eclectic Hex Bowl Medium, $165, and then wrap my very special gift using this ultra-sparkly Copper Metallic Ribbon, $10.95, from one of our new advertisers, Hunt & Style. Yes please!
Following on from yesterday’s geometric theme, these paper origami lightfittings from Studio Snowpuppe – also in The Netherlands – are pretty special. Each piece is folded from sheets of paper, creating interesting shapes and shadows as light is cast from them. This reserved Extra Large Paper Origami Hanging, complete with wooden button on the bottom is $249.48 but there are many others in other colours to see on their shop site at Etsy.

This is quite possibly the cutest idea I’ve seen to make all those (hundreds of) ugly cords look nice… the Small Ville Wooden Caps for Apple Charger Cables, THB450 – around AUD$15.50, are carved from maple wood and come in a variety of sets to suit different chargers. There are lots of other lovely wooden products from Pana Objects, all designed and made in Thailand.
