Hobart haunt...

We stayed for a few nights at this amazing hotel in Hobart - The Henry Jones Art Hotel. The hotel is housed in the old IXL Jam factory and the interior still has many original features such as exposed beams, original exposed brickwork and the 'Australian' corrugated iron. I could have quite happily stayed for a lot longer {if we didn't have to continue on the rest of our trip}.

Hope you had a lovely Monday :-)

Another Kelley...

 Kelley Moore's office in the latest Rue mag {which is fabulous I might add} is amazing!!! What an incredibly inspiring space it must be to work in - I loved everything about it.

Have a fabulous weekend - I'm off up north to visit my little niece before she gets too much bigger!!!

Designer faves...

I am often revisiting designer's websites to see if there has been anything updated or added to their portfolio, and I came across Krista Ewart in my files. Even though some of her work has been shown extensively around 'blog land' {and rightly so}, I couldn't resist posting a few of my favourite pics!!!

Weekend snippet...

It has been a relatively quiet weekend in our house - the perfect time to do some rearranging {and the dreaded cleaning!!}. I love starting the new week with everything sorted and a few little projects completed. Stay tuned...

Postcards from Tasmania {#2}...


Our driving holiday was basically a 'round' trip of the state. We flew in to Launceston, worked our way up the north coast to Stanley, & drove via Cradle Mountain to Strahan. From there we went across to Hobart and did south of Hobart via a day trip. After that we went via Port Arthur up to Swansea where we had some 'relaxation' time {and didn't want to leave}!!! We then travelled up the east coast to St Helen's and explored the Bay of Fires from there. It was then back to Launceston on the last day for our flight home.

The western wilderness we found amazing and beautiful and could have explored for days!! We ventured to Arthur Creek and where this meets this sea and is aptly called 'The edge of the world'... It felt like it too! Aprt from the amazing scenery, we loved the little towns along the way and enjoyed a quick look through the many antique shops and bric a brac places {with some treasures to take back with us}.

I don't want to bore too much with these photos but will post a couple more from the latter part of trip later in the week. Happy Monday :-)

Postcards from Tasmania {#1}...

We are back from our trip and had the most wonderful 2 weeks!!! We could have quite happily stayed there and loved the countryside and relaxed way of life. Although we drove around most of the island, we felt that there was still plenty more to see and do {as we love exploring every little side road and path}. We did lots of bushwalks and had every season of weather, from rain to sun to snow and then heat!!!

I will be posting some 'postcards' of pictures that I took to give you a glimpse into our little trip :-)
