Garden update...

All is flourishing in the garden at the moment. I have been cutting roses for the last few days as each morning there are new buds bursting open. They are making the house smell so beautiful & I have some in nearly every room!!! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend... Ours was filled with lots of jobs including painting the final 2 rooms of the house - We are nearly there with all the finishing touches. Then comes the decorative finishes which are of course never finished & a work in progress :-)

Artwork addition...

I have loved this artwork by Miranda Skoczek for a long time , so I took the plunge recently and it came home with me {courtesy of Edwina Corlette Gallery in New Farm}. It now hangs proudly in my lounge room & I must say that it really helps finish off the space. I am just trying to decide on some new cushion covers to add to my collection for the sofa underneath - oh the dilemmas!!! Once I have the room looking respectable, I'll be sure to post a picture of the painting in situ.

Letterbox love...

This could be up there as one of my favourite covers yet... Look what I found in my letter box when I arrived home this afternoon! I can't wait to sit down and read the whole copy. I had a quick flick and am looking forward to the article on Nicki Townsend's home - it looks amazing.

Happy weekend to all...

P.S. My photo doesn't do this cover justice - the title is hot pink!

Market delights {from Nice}...


There was nothing I enjoyed more during our past overseas trips than visits to the local markets. The vast array of produce & goods was always beyond my expectations and the colours were a feast for the eyes {as well as providing for a delicious meal later}. I received these images in my inbox on my way to work this morning from my mother in law who is currently taking a group of ladies through France with her business 'Girls on Tour'. These were her photos from the market in Nice, which had me longing to be back in France!!!

I hope your week is smooth sailing so far... It's nearly the weekend!!!

Liz Caan in IvP...

There has been lots happening around our neck of the woods lately {but more on that later in the week}... It was nice to take some time out today & enjoy the 1st birthday edition of the IvP online magazine. My favourites from the mag are above & are the work of designer Liz Caan. I am smitten with that artwork in the second picture!!!

Happy Monday :-)
