Teacup full of violas

I have lots of old teacups I have collected,

mostly pink ones of course,

I was very alarmed and excited when I came across these pink violas at Bunnings on Sunday, they disappear very quickly around this side of town. 

Have a happy Wednesday.x

Bright busy home office

Some colour in the office for Friday, I like this one today, it looks messy and well used with those boxes piled on top of the table and some magazines on the floor,

very bright and busy reading room, but happy

and I love this with the roses in the little vase next to the wedding photo, very sweet.

Have a lovely Friday.x

French doors and a balcony

This looks like a lovely place to sit and reflect on the week, or plan the next one.  There is a pot of tea waiting and a magazine, I wonder which one it is.

Home Office Design

I am always looking for some home office inspiration,

I love the round table, and all the frames,

so organised, with some colour,

and an inspiration wall,

Have a lovely Friday, whatever you are doing.x

Laura Ashley rose cushion

Ooops, I found this lovely Laura Ashley cushion, I have admired it for a long time, contemplating crossing over to blue, I did, I made the commitment, and there it is on my sofa,
no, not this one, although I do love this too.  But no, I won't,

meanwhile, remember that gorgeous fabric I bought from Thea and Sammi, using my Nicole Mallalieu pattern,  I made this clutch purse with it, the fabric is gorgeous, feels so crisp

and this is a recently new iceberg rose, where is it?  I hear you say, I know, I hate waiting for them to grow, and that stake is a bit on the tall side too, come on spring.

Have a fabulous Wednesday.x

pink and silver, and I love the feather.

shells, and a star fish, perfect bedroom for the beach house,


and romantic,

Have a happy week.x

A dressing room

Doesn't this dressing room look so inviting, can't you just imagine swinging open those doors to see what else is in there, I can.
