ruby's nest.

last friday night, i headed into brunswick, to celebrate the opening of a very cool little shop...



ruby's nest is the brainchild of jay and anna and is a reinvention of the olive grove studios.

their new space is bright and airy and perfectly shows off the beautiful and colourful products.



as well as wonderful handmade clothes, there is also a large array of homewares, jewellery and accessories available.

the night was wonderful, with anna and jay being amazing hosts. delicious and refreshing things to drink, as well as lots of cheese, fresh fruit AND cookies and lollipops made by this lovely lady!



everyone also received a goodie bag (which is what anna has in that tray ha ha!), in which, was a super cute pair of wooden owl earrings!

the "studio" part of the existing olive grove studios, are still up and running, and were open for inspection on friday night too!



we got to have a little peek into this lino printing studio, chatting with the couple of ladies who do their amazing work there!

and then there's the floors in this place...
like polished concrete on over-drive.
so cool!



and cool floors, mean the standard blogger shot, feet included!

i was lucky enough to head out for dinner and gelati with three lovely ladies afterwards too.
it was an awesome night!

have you been along to ruby's nest? what did you get up to on friday night?

Wow, Thank you so much for such lovely thoughts and words about our little store. We are so proud of it and just love going in everyday and sewing/crafting/making to our hearts content.
So grateful you braved the heat to come to our opening too. Wish I had more time to chat to everyone. The days just aren't long enough.
