We Love Daisy Lane!

I think everyone is well aware of my soft spot for all things vintage
– especially when it comes to children’s illustrations.

When l found out that Lark was launching a new range based on
vintage illustrations from the 60’s l was thrilled and quickly endeavoured
to find out how to get my hands on some of this gorgeous range.

Let me introduce to you Daisy Lane.

Daisy Lane is based on a batch of vintage greeting cards that
Allison found at the Daylesford Bazaar (one of our favourite
shopping haunts when we vist the country!)

These gorgeous cards were originally illustrated by Sue Adams.

Sue was a greeting card artist for Phil Taylor Cards in Sydney
from the 1960s tothe 1980s, so taking inspiration from
Sue's illustrations Allison created Daisy Lane.

This beautifully designed playful range has it all!
From Wall posters to Letter Writing Sets and of course my personal
favourite – Swaps Cards complete with album.
The Daisy Lane range will eventually grow into a whole
collection of sweet gifts from bubble bath to secret diaries.
All the lovely things we loved from childhood – especially the secret dairies.

Daisy Lane is 100% Australian made and can be found online at the Lark website.
