elements she loves

elemements i love 3

good morning and happy monday! i hope your summer is jam packed with all the fun that only the blazing sun and vitamin d can bring. today i’d like to introduce a new friend i met on the trip to paris.


please meet the wonderful Brooke Crowle from Australia. her business is called elements i love and she’s working on every facet of it, like polishing a beautiful gem. she and i were sort of mutt and jeff, (she’s a tall gorgeous blonde) and hit it off right away.

we’re both importers and had similar (sometimes tragic )! stories of bringing containers and products into the US. she’s taken it as far as importing from india and morocco so i was really eager to listen to and learn from her.


we have a similar aesthetic and her shop in surrey hills, australia makes me pine a little for a warehouse/workshop when i see the displays and projects she’s working on. LauraBaxter.elementsilove

she has her own special finishes and imports stunning linens and curtains. she doesn’t mind getting dirty with paint and stain but is also surround by such pretty things…maybe a trip to australia is in order!

    I’ve been surfing on-line more than 3 hours today, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like
    yours. It’s lovely price enough for me. Personally,
    if all site owners and bloggers made gopd content material as
    you did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before.

    It’s been a while since I visited your blog. That’s why this comment is late. I love it. Your blog is still so beautiful and inspiring to me. This is a beautiful post.
