We were going to wait until our new website was launched before we shared our super exciting news with you all, but just couldn’t wait any longer! Thanks to the lovely Marie Nichols, an interior stylist with the most lovely blog ever, our garlands were featured in Real Living magazine this month! Not only on one page, but on three!!! Four if you count our details in the stockists listing! So what are you waiting for? If you haven’t already got your copy of this month’s Real Living then rush out and get one and turn to page 54!!! A huge thanks once again to Marie, don’t forget to pop over to a Whole Lotta Lovely to have a look at Marie’s fabulous work and to say congrats while you are there on her recent engagement!
We are so excited to be part of Matilda’s Market next Saturday at Eagle Farm, although we are going to be pretty frantic between now and then, ensuring we have enough stock for the day!!!
Please come and visit our stall at Mathilda’s Market at the Brisbane Racecourse at Eagle Farm, Ascot on Saturday 14th August, from 9am to 1pm. Entry and parking is free. With over 70 stall holders, yummy food and kids’ entertainment on offer, Mathilda’s Market is undoubtedly Brisbane’s finest shopping destination for our littlies. For a sneak preview of what’s in store, head to www.mathildasmarket.com.au, or check out their blog at www.mathildasmarket.blogspot.com. We really hope to see you there! (Oh, and if it’s a little too far to travel, you might be happy to hear that Mathilda’s Markets are held regularly in seven cities around Australia). More info at: www.mathildasmarket.com.au

Last week was filled with loads of fun activities, Strike Bowling for Alec’s birthday, Boys Like Girls at the Hi-Fi and Fame the musical – one of my all time favourites! And don’t forget you can follow us on twitter now as well, this is yet another new feature of our new website – which is getting closer and closer!!! YAY!
A big thank you to bythebead for featuring our music note bunting in their black and white stripes etsy treasury last week. You can see the treasury here. We have only just started putting items back into our etsy store because we have been so busy with our new website design but promise that the the shop will be full in no time!
Speaking of cakes here are some pics of a very special delivery we received on Saturday from, yep, you guessed it Super Mum! J-Netty has been at it again and because I often forget to eat, well to my mother’s standards anyway (I know, very unhealthly behaviour – but life just gets too exciting sometimes!) my mum often comes bearing super special gifts of my favourite foods, whether it be mini quiches, crumbed chicken pieces, vegetable soup or cupcakes, it’s never too much trouble and let me tell you it is greatly appreciated here at Chateau Margate!
So a couple of weeks ago I was asked to “fill in a few blanks” for the lovely Boutique Markets and here is where you can find the answers and little bit more about the girl behind The Paper Tie Affair! Thanks Rachael for featuring my answers on your blog, looking forward to the August Boutique Markets, Sunday August 8, 8am – 1pm, Portside Wharf, Hamilton. Oh and don’t forget to check out my BM besties answers here! You will also find the recipe for the 5 minute chocolate mug cake – which is a big favourite of my boys!!!
