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.

DIY inspiration

DIY ideas (i've collected something else) that i wish i had the time/talent/resources for.

i thought i'd share the inspiration, seeing i'll only get around to possibly one or two projects.

1. vintage photos in glass bottles and jars

2. flower magnets

3. arty zip lock bags

4. happy pills

(an actual candy store in barcelona – check it out here)

5. diy notebook lunchbag

6. newspaper gift bags

i'd be happy in here forever.

Wednesday, November 17, 2010


enjoying an occasional evening of exercise at cottesloe or leighton beach.
then sitting in the breeze (and/or gusting wind) watching the kite surfers as the sun goes down.
it's the best relax at the end of what have been very long days lately.

getting lost in time in second hand book stores.
i did emerge with a 17 dollar, 1950's copy of little women, amongst others.
it was my favourite book growing up.
(incidentally a first edition of the book published in 1868 goes for a rather pricey sum of around 22 thousand online.)

coming home to sweet little notes on my blackboard.
this gem is from aimee.

chalk to me

i do believe i'm addicted.
just some more blackboard (chalkboard) wonders.

vanilla, flowers and strawberries

love the scent of my new vanilla and caramel candle.
the whole peter alexander store smelled like this (i went there to buy a gift btw) and i just couldn't resist.
now my bedroom smells like dessert!

love the look of these gorgeous green flowers adorning my dressing table.
the 'A' was made by my darling (littlest) brother.

love the taste of fresh strawberries smothered in greek yoghurt – it's not cream.

friday i'm in love

dear double shot long black,
thank you for giving me a boost this morning after very little sleep last night due to an overactive creative mind 'moment'.

dear mini notepad,
thank you for being next to my bed for me so i could write and sketch these thoughts at 1am.

dear sylvia,
i don't know how you survive on such little amounts of sleep with a baby.
i'm half zombie today.
i hope you have a wonderful weekend and a fantastic birthday!
thank you for (inadvertently) trying to catch up to me in age again.
we'll grow young together babe.

dear weekend,
thanks for coming back around again so soon.
i really appreciate it.

image from the amazing friends of type project.
worth checking out!

got to love a sweet design!
gorgeous details and simple enough for my minimalist desktop backgound taste.
