Who knew

I liked yellow?


At least when it is paired with some scrubby blue and grey-green.

And I had heard indoor plants were back in. And I like them in some wicker.

And Miss Chooken has taken a liking to pears (thanks to the school fruit policy and influence of her classmates ;) ). One more healthy option for the lunchbox each morning.

5 little pretty birds all in a row



It had been some time since I logged onto Lori’s blog, so when I wandered over there yesterday and saw these images – wow!




So simple, so elegant in a rustic way. I desperately want some enamel pitchers now!


But I love Maria’s philosophy of not decorating over night. Save you pennies for the important items and keep you eye out for bargains along the way. Would love Maria to start a blog ;), but I think 5 kids means she is busy enough!

There are a lot more images from Maria’s home, Lori’s home and many other gorgeous spaces. If you haven’t been over there before or maybe just not in a while, head over to Lori’s blog Frugal Farmhouse Design, it is gorgeous!

More? Yes please!


No doubt most of us have seen the gorgeous images of Anna Spiro's home featured in Vogue Living and read of the launch of Anna’s website Black and Spiro.

Imagine my delight when I noted that Catherine Shields has posted additional images from Anna’s home and shop! Here and here!

Thankyou Catherine and thanks Anna for more inspiration!

Lordy, Lordy!

I am a busy little bee!
I have not even taken the photos that I have intended to post this past week.....lots of things on the go!
This weekend I turn 30 (!!!) and have a large family meal happening, and then on Sunday we are hosting my sister's engagement party - at our house! Aahhh! What was I thinking??!! Equal thoughts of excitement and panic trying to get the place looking respectable right now. Not helped my the rainy weather.

OK bloggers, I will be back with some pics of the little projects I have been up to, but right now, I am off to freshen-up the spare room linens and work out where to hide two clothes airers.....

Care to curl up here?

I utterly adore this nook from Reese Witherspoon's home.
It is red and green (but certainly not Christmas-y), rustic and contemporary, grounded....I could on and on!
I could snuggle up there for a afternoon of book reading, or perhaps put my girls down for a nap while I wrote some letters at that scrubby table. Gorgeous.
Spotted over here (with more yummy rooms from the home) and sourced here.
