One Fat Emu  At Netherhill Farm, South Australia, creating handcrafted pieces for the home and garden. Events - Weddings- Photoshoots - Workshops. Call me Kate!

Firsts......Exciting and a little bit terrifying at the same time. First steps. First words. First loves......In just over a week I'll be holding my very first workshop. I'm a teeny bit nervous. It's a leap of faith and means a lot to me that it's a success. So with the space ready and the champagne on ice, I can't wait to start filling the wheelbarrow with blooms and share them with you . Tickets via my website in the bio #adelaideworkshops #flowersofadelaide

If at first you don't succeed , go push the mower and burn some stuff #justdoit

About this time 20 years ago I was bemoaning the fact that me and men don't mix. But as luck would have it along strolled a handsome prince in a dinner suit, keen to set me straight ......we woke the next morning to a pretty bedroom, not dissimilar to this. Hopeless romantic that I am , I was already completely smitten. "I'm not ready to get into a relationship again," he announced, keen to temper my enthusiasm . 4 children , 20 sheep , 8 chickens, an emu, a wedding ring and a few houses later, I haven't had the heart to tell him that we're actually an item. Do you think I should break the news to him? 😝#justaonenightstand #helovesmehelovesmenot #adrianbattiston

After and after. That's the kitchen, now converted to a bedroom after a makeover, and me and my muffin top, no makeup and painting attire clearly after no makeover. And in completely unrelated news if you're anything like me and have no clue what to get your mother this Mother's Day then perhaps my June flower workshop will fit the bill.

Busy hands fill my heart and calm my crazy mind #makers #makersmovement #wool #thecreamery

Today I missed the chance to catch up with @slowgatheringsbarossa because I was busy pumping sewage, but that's a story in itself. It got me thinking about how we network and develop supportive business relationships. 'Success breeds success' promotes Steve Siebold in his book that encourages us to get our kids playing tennis and golf. I love getting physical but I don't have the skill or time for either. Give me a girlfriend, a coffee or workshop any day. Have I missed something or are golf and tennis the way forward ? #masterclasses #workshops #experiences #adelaide

Today we were lucky enough to meet Mark from @random_recycled whose love of recycled materials is evident in the stunning pieces he creates. From lights and tables to bench seats, his vision for creating something beautiful from recycled materials is only limited by your imagination . Today Meg and Sid gave the thumbs up to this rusty arbour woven with foliage from the #paddock . We can't wait to see it used for weddings @netherhill_farm later this year #adelaidehills

The champagne's on ice, the mood music is playing, the flowers await! I'm so delighted to launch my first workshop @netherhill_farm and it's all things flowers! Get your skates on for Sunday June 3. You can find details at or DM me with enquiries. #hooray

Sundays, around here are anything but slow. Have been working my little patuti off to get our spaces up to speed for photoshoots and events. Some days I'm dogged by self doubt; mostly can't believe I could be this lucky. Other days it's a celebration of this wonderful journey! Today was one of those! #happysunday @netherhill_farm #gratitude #selfdoubt

My resume is so long, I need a trailer to cart it around. At times I've felt it was a personal failing. But it's all starting to make sense! Maybe all roads do lead to Rome and I've been training for Nether Hill Farm, and the wonderful opportunities it is starting to present, all my life . I'm damn sure that much of what has happened in the last two and half years wouldn't have been possible without your support, inspiration and encouragement. Thank you my darlings . I am really so very #grateful #stickingpower #dowhatyoulove

I love leftovers. I always have. It's a mood. It's that idea of not cooking and it always, always tastes better the next day. Today I've been playing with leftovers and included them in this tribal inspired installation. Happy Monday ! #tribal

When you burn the dinner because you're busy painting the front doors under stealth is it a) acceptable to overload it with spice to hide your mistake b) ok to completely play it down or c) come clean #okilied #butthedoorslookgood
