Long time no blog. Sorry about that, there’s a simple explanation – I mistook myself for a bear and went into hibernation! Ha. Not really – that does sound nice though. I have been suffering a fair bit in the cold weather and it was very nice to feel my toes again recently.
The real explanation isn’t as simple. I’ve been fairly caught up in my personal world – mostly autism related, directly and indirectly. This ASD and early intervention thing is pretty intense. And the flu – gah! 5 weeks! It cycled through all of us! For a while I lost my ‘disgustingly optimistic’ outlook but I have it back now so my world is shiny again. Yay.
There has been interesting stuff happening in the M&W world – I just haven’t managed to post about it. I’ve been learning about the techy world of website and have managed to make some small changes. I’ve found some new suppliers for things other than lanterns so keep an eye out at the store for some new products soon! And some old ones making a return!! The latest new products have just been added! Some super cute and Shiny metallic star lanterns! ooh and a new white lantern too - not shiny but still cute!
In (OMG!) less than 4 weeks we have a M&W wedding! My bestie, Bel (who was a massive M&W fan even before I took the reins) is getting married! I have been juggling official bridesmaid’s duties and Wedding stylist so that’s a bit intense. We have some stunning ideas happening and can’t wait to share them with you all – but you’ll have to be patient, its bad luck seeing the stylings before the event! (I might be confusing my superstitions there but you get the point!) Might be able to let a few sneak peeks out in the next few weeks!
The girls did a magnificent job - you can read all about on the blog. The effort that went into the dinner party is very impressive! If any of my friends put on a dinner like this for me, I would seriously consider venturing out of my cave!
If there is a product you sorely miss, or would like to see on M&W, drop me a line - I'm more than happy to hear your thoughts!

A massive shout out has to go to Suz – the amazing talent behind Lace & Bubbles (how awesome is that name!!). Suz is another WAHM (Work at home mum) who juggles children and small business and she kindly share some with us.
Suz used many of our products to style a 40th Birthday party and did an amazing job! You can check out more pics here.
The mix of different size lanterns always tickles my fancy!
Til next blog whimsies (which hopefully won’t take as long and *may* include a big announcement for longtime whimsies! ooooh mysterious!), keep up the awesomeness! and happy defrosting!
