just another snippet of life...

i'm totally addicted to pickled ginger.
can't get enough of it.
but really what else do you eat it with but sushi rolls.

i have found the most divine hand cream in the world.
in denmark of all places.
it's from love & toast.
honey coconut flavour.
yes flavour! i want to eat it.

checked out the wonderful colour bursts of wild flowers in kings park after work.
i drive past everyday.
thought it's about time i stopped for a stroll.

clear my mind


they look like graceful birds.

3. i adore vintage glass jars.
this one is from esty.
would match my white, beige, dusky pink and dark brown bedroom.
ship to australia please!

the best tea cups.
can someone tell me where i can find them in perth?!

i need this for my bedside!

delightful denmark

1. the stunning greens pool.
2. 3. 4. breakfast with sj in the town while the boys surfed.
at bento box cafe on the bank of the river.
the coffee was amazing!
5. late afternoon surfers at ocean beach.
6. an old tractor in the caravan park near our camping site.
7. treetop walk near walpole.
8. the boys rescuing tourists who managed to get bogged in their mini bus on the side of the road and had no idea of how to get out.
i should have helped.
laughing and taking photos was more fun.
9. war memorial in denmark
10. vines in the wine country.
11. view from the observatory brewery.
12. sunset on the long drive home.

camping dreams

it's a long weekend.
and i haven't been camping since last year!
so disappearing to the south west coast for three days.
my usual style consists of rolling out a swag.
but in my camping dreams there is...

this would match my bling gold puma high-tops.

the sleeping bag you wear.
hats off to whoever thought of this.

and yes it's for adults!

the ultimate destination glamping (glamourous camping).

what you get a uni student, seamstress, tea loving friend for her birthday

…who also has a penchant for anything green and pretty patterns.
i think i had more fun shopping for sj if anything.

ceramic travel mug, ikea fabrics, funny post it notes, chocolate (and hot chocolate) in a cute storage 'pail'

rue magazine: a new decorating magazine that hit the web this month.

hey my musketeers, we have chocolate named after us!

i had chocolate cravings on friday.
and my local video store now has american confectionery.
and it's piled up on a massive table as you're waiting in line.
and i swear it was whispering "eat me, eat me".
this one i couldn't resist – just for names sake.

actually pretty tasty. basically a king-size(+) milky bar. yum yum.

just a snippet of life...

the latest edition to the ever expanding teapot collection.
this cute little set is from cocoon in launceston.

my instax photos collection.
currently occupying the back of the front door.

and my new (slightly nerdy) glasses.
love them.
would love them even more if the prescription was perfect.
back to the optometrist i think.

oh! pretty!

something else to cheer me up is a tiny little package that arrived in the mail yesterday.
buying online is always a bit hit and miss.
this is definitely a hit!
especially for a vintage silver ring that cost $22.

made me smile

missing 'my people' today.
it's mums birthday and they'll be lots of family festivities.
this photo brought a smile to my face though.
it's a self portrait of my little brother jamie and me on my last visit.
just the usual silliness when we get together.

black is the new black

i know it's just spring and one should be thinking of flowers and pastels, but i just can't get enough of black at the moment.

one of those "i wish i'd thought of that design" moments.

a very fun idea.

oh, one day you will be mine!

and this is now mine!
first etsy purchase ever.
oh dear, what have i started.
hurry up mr postman (from latvia).

i wish i didn't rent so i could paint a wall in my bedroom black.
it's the next step in my obsession with blackboard paint i guess.

very tongue in cheek.
i love fred products.
