What’s in a name?

October 16, 2011 / By The Mesdames / Make a comment

What’s in a name? Well, you could ask Shakespeare what the blazes he was banging on about, or you could ask Emma Lamb. She makes the awesomest modern-vintage (work that one out) crocheted garlands and goodies – and names them all. Wouldn’t you like to take home a Daisy or an Esme? Or a Flora or an Edna? I don’t know how they smell, but they sure are sweet.

A lovely time

June 30, 2011 / By The Mesdames / Make a comment

I can be really grumpy about the city. The roadworks make me grumpy. The fact that I need to take out a loan to pay for parking makes me grumpy. The black and grey-suited terrace people make me grumpy (since when is wearing colour a sin?). Leaving half an hour early to account for rainy-day peak-hour traffic and getting there in eight minutes makes me grumpy. Thank goodness for the glory of Venn, home to warm coffee and sellers of this cosy clock, for making me less grumpy. Quite chipper in fact.

For good and not evil

February 5, 2011 / By The Mesdames / Make a comment

Mesdames Mitchell and Dent advocate the use of crochet for good and not evil. Evil: toilet roll dollies, very small bikinis, and cuff and collar ‘jewellery’ combinations. Good: granny rugs, doilies and of course, lovely deer wall hangings. You can buy this pattern from Re Rae and help put the world to rights.

January 25, 2011 / By The Mesdames / 2 comments

So exciting, our mesdames Angela Mitchell and Leah Dent were invited by Lomography Australia / New Zealand to contribute to a leg of the Diana World Tour 2011. We may have given you a sneak peek, do you remember? Along with inspirational artists including friends and faves such as Gemma Jones, Beci Orpin, Cat-RabbitGhostpatrol and Eveline Tarunadjaja to name a few, our bunnycam will be one of 25 shown in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland as part of the Customised Clones Exhibition. Importantly – and listen up now  – they will all be auctioned online to raise funds for See Through Me and World Child Cancer. Bidding starts February 3rd, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Knit one, porcelain one

November 4, 2010 / By Madame Dent / Make a comment

Madame Mitchell is attending classes in ceramics. I can just picture her in an art smock with a scarf knotted on the top of her head. So elegant is she, she probably doesn’t even get clay under her fingernails. Madame Dent is much more mucky. She’d probably just go out and find a little something like this porcelain Annette Bugansky cup and make believe she made it herself.

Bear with me

But only if you want to look very silly (and a little bit cute). Crocheted bear ear headphone covers, what every girl needs.

Oh, diddums

May 7, 2010 / By Little Miss Fliss / 1 comment

Imagine my surprise when I found out that my favourite one-of-a-kind high school English teacher from days of yore has hidden talents. She makes these one-of-a-kind Diddums dolls. She’s also a singer, which I didn’t know. Singing, stitching, Shakespeare – what a combination.
