happy christmas

my boudoir

my haven.
i (finally) finished updating my boudoir.
finishing touches of a repainted dresser, sheer curtains, artwork, mirrored surfaces and sheepskin rug.
just in time for the arrival of my very arty and designer little sis.
i must feel the need to impress.

summer lovin'

looking forward to my summer holidays.
can't wait for visits from my musketeers and sister and brother.

my MUST DO list:

picnics with my lil sis.
she's never been to perth before.
so lots of sightseeing and eating.
you can't go wrong when food is involved.
btw how cool is this picnic box set.

read a whole book.
on the beach.

visit different beaches.
western australia has so many gorgeous beaches and i should see more of them.

addicted to this print

all of the sudden my eye seems to be drawn to anything with a chevron pattern.

family weekend

i had a WONDERFUL weekend in tasmania.
the main reason was for this mini trip was my darling cousin trent's wedding.
which oddly enough i have no photos of.
(forgetting my camera and not charging my iphone doesn't help).
the mostly cold weather, hayfever, and lack of sleep were all so worth putting up with.
i got to play games with my nieces, go for a swanky lunch with my brother, drive through some beautiful countryside, catch up with most of my extended family, enjoy tasmanian pinot noir, hug best friends and laugh until my sides hurt.

(the last pic is my little cousin harper's accidentally amazing photo)

loving my new three seater brown leather couch.
great to stretch out on at the end of the day.

enjoying sunday night(cap) scotch with friends.
could quite happily make that a ritual.
especially if accompanied by a bit of sinatra.

had a lovely surprise with my spoonful magazine in the post yesterday.
the verdict is, IT'S FANTASTIC.
positive, dreamy and really is a happiness companion.
(secret wish of mine to create my own little magazine one day).
i love it so much i'll have to order the others too.
so happy when i get mail that isn't bills.
yesterday's mail was perfect with a magazine, a wedding invite, a christmas card (and only one bank statement).
mr postman, keep that up.

oh baby…

i hosted a baby shower this weekend for my darling friend lisa (aka the most perfect looking pregnant girl).
she missed out on the baby shower event for her first with a bit of bad timing.
we had a wonderful afternoon of chatting, eating scrumptious food, sipping cold drinks (+ a little sparkling) and giving gifts.
i have to admit, i can't take any credit for the food – thanks to all the girls for bringing along a plate of deliciousness.
sj's 'indecisive' cupcakes are the cutest!
i created a simple bunting with the themed design printed onto card, cut into triangles and sewed together with bakers twine and an embroidery needle.
plus i made a fun questionnaire for the everyone to predict baby facts for lisa to keep.

the only thing missing was red and white paper straws that i ordered weeks ago, but still haven't turned up.
they would have matched SO well.

the girls with glasses

adore this retro holiday photoshoot in the latest rue magazine (page 138), with the very savvy the girls with glasses.
(be sure to check out the behind the scenes video links in the mag too.)

the glasses philosophy got me too.
i'm an almost permanent specs girl lately – so i must embrace it.

obviously for the love of books today.
