Fab family...

After stocking up on some magazines again yesterday {I have been slack & haven't read some of faves for a while}, I came across this groovy family featured in the Dec 2010 Living Etc. The article is on Ottilie Stevenson {a textile designer} and her Georgian farmhouse in Suffolk. I was smitten - this is the coolest looking family ever!!!!!

Queensland's disaster continues...

Brisbane residents are waking to devastating flood scenes. (Reuters: Tim Wimborne )

Brisbane CBD under water

My heart goes out to all of those who have been affected by the terrible floods {not just in Brisbane} but to all those people in central & western Queensland who have been experiencing this for weeks now {some even for the second & third time}. It will be a very long recovery effort but with support from friends, family & the amazing volunteer workers, our beautiful state will come out the other side.

We have been extremely fortunate where we live on the north side of the city, and only experienced power failure but otherwise are safe & well. My family has all been down from North Qld to visit for the last week so at least they are safe also.

There are so many ways in which people need help, and if you are able to provide any assistance at all you can visit the Flood Relief website which has all the details.

Stay safe & strong... Our thoughts & prayers are with you all.

Small but vibrant...

After a week of some time out, it is all systems go in our house this week. We have painted our ceilings {my poor husband did the rolling while I did the cutting in and cornices}. Tomorrow we tackle the walls and hopefully by tomorrow night {or the next} we will have a magical white interior!!!!

I spotted this amazing little caterpillar outside on a bench seat this afternoon & was captured by the vibrant colours in such a tiny thing. Nature will always continue to amaze & inspire me :-)  Wouldn't this make a fabulous colour scheme???
