funkiest kitchen ever

i found this little gem at the selby.
about the coolest use of blackboard paint ever – kitchen cupboards.
i am seriously obsessed with the stuff!
being an avid lover of modern/white/neat/uncluttered house design, i never thought this is the kind of thing I'd want one day – but it kind of is now.
also heart the blackboard wall below.

for some other seriously great house photography check out aimee's into my window

weekend friend

it's very exciting to have my beautiful cousin lori move over (or back) to perth!
we went out for dinner to catch up (with mike and bailey as well).
their other little boy cooper stayed home and played up for his oma while we had an amazing dinner (at next door) of carpaccio fillet beef and slow cooked pork belly (+ too much more).
a wonderful catch up and a great night.
hopefully the first of many.

polaroid's little brother

i'm in like with this!
if i don't get a fuji instax mini instant camera for my birthday (hint hint) I shall buy it for myself.

then make the shots into a feature wall of sorts.
string lines with mini pegs/bullclips to hold the photos on?
or arrange in the shape of a heart?

tea tea tea

green tea.
it's delicious.
it's soothing.
it's good for you.
i drink copious amounts do the stuff – about 8 cups a day.
it's not a bad taste, like most people think.
you just need to find the right one.
and seeing I drink so much (tea),
i think i'm a pretty good authority on the matter.

my top picks of the instant, drink at work, bagged variety:
• tetley organic green tea
• dilmah moroccan mint
(a great, fresh, 'lil bit minty taste.
also impossible to find lately)

my top pick of the lovely,
got time to make tea, fresh leaf variety:
• T2 sencha green

but then again i have a bit of a thing for T2.
Their monk pear flavoured black tea is AMAZING.

i also have a bit of a love of teapots,
but that's another story altogether.

blackboard love

our ever changing blackboard.
usually 'littered' with housemate mel and my rambling notes
to each other, or random silliness by guests,
is now back to being a bit funky again.

guess who's painting again...

and i’ll come running,
thats what a friend is for.

reaching out from way away.
giving you my love.
thinking of you.
missing you both my girlies.

mr. goose

isn't he adorable!
created by the very talented sarah-jane for my mum.
sewing being a talent i wish i possessed,
but sadly the thought of it makes me shudder with dread.
i'll leave it to the experts (i.e. mum, christine and sj)
and stick to pixels and paint.
