Just scrolling.

I was scrolling through some of my photos and realised I hadn't shared all these fabulous cushions I had made for a client with you. Of course, there is lots I don't share......not sure why, maybe because its a bit scary to do so, but I just love how this room has come together. 


I will show you the rest of the room at another time, but this family sitting room had a complete makeover in the form of new sofa, rug, coffee table, antique console behind the sofa and of course the cushions. 
It reflects the family who live here and is so bright and cheerful. 
Please excuse the bad photography.....the light is all wrong but I still want to dive on that sofa and settle amongst all those cushions!

Dog gone....

......it's Tuesday already! Where did Monday go? I have a 'to do' list as long as my arm today so will be diligently ticking items off it, one by one. I thought this image might amuse you - it does me. It unfortunately reminds me of a lampbase I missed out on years ago at a clearing sale. Never, ever again will I bit so timidly. Now, when I go to a sale I wave my arms about, hold my number high in the air and have even been known to say 'oi' just in case the auctioneer doesn't see me!


    Embarrasing, but true.

Enough said.

Another one.

When you are on to a good thing, stick to it I say. This theory applies to lots of things in life. When I find that perfect fitting shoe, I buy two or that pair of jeans that stay just in the right spot when when you are bending over, then I go for it and make sure I own several. Heck, I have been using the same perfume, blush and lip gloss for years..............so here's yet another lovely bedroom to finish off the week.  Just a bit more contempory but so comfortable and stylish.


And you know what pulls that simple colour palette together? Yes, the rug. Oh, to be able to sit on a sofa at the end of the bed and read - how very cilvilised indeedy. 
(my mind is churning away now.......I do have a large bedroom waiting to be done and this could be just the thing......I might never want to come out!)

Sorry...

........to bombard you with beautiful bedroom pics this week......here's your opportunity to look away if you don't want to be delighted. 


I know, I know, blue and green should never be seen .....etc, etc. etc. but can't you make an exception for this? 
Thanks Bec - 'stole' this one from you from Pinterest.

Choices, choices.

There are soooooo many beautiful fabrics to choose from on any given day when working with clients and sometimes deciding on something can take time. For me it is always a process of starting with a few choices and slowly whittling down
 until I have that 'wow' factor. My advice to clients is always go with what you LOVE, in terms of fabric and wallpaper and then we end up building around that. So, no matter if it's a process of building up to a concept or refining down to one the result should always be the same! 

 

I found this image whilst trawling for fabric........perfect, don't you think! More beautiful blues to choose from and more fabric to love!

It's the start....

of a run of beautiful weather, so even though I have promised myself I will stay inside to finish all my pending jobs and paperwork, I will be throwing all the doors open and letting some of this beautiful day in! 


Wish me luck, in case the temptation is too great and I end up outside!

'Brights' all round!

Just thought you might like to see this beautiful stack of cushions I delivered to a customer last week.




There is plenty more to be added to complete the look for this room so I will be sure to keep you in the loop. Needlesss to say there is plenty of colour going on and lots of lovely texture in the form of fabrics and trim. 


I picked all these beautiful and bright flowers from my garden this week end to fill the house with a bit of colour and fragrance. The roses are just starting to appear and I have plenty of buds ready to burst! 
We are due for a sunny week and what what better way to start the Spring Racing Carnival? Melbourne is alive with racing fever and it is a fun time to get in on the action. It seems that 'brights' are latest trend in Spring fashions too............

So nice to see colour again after such a dreary winter!

Good combos.

I am having this fabric and trim made up for one of my lovely and delightful customers, and when it arrived was reminded as to what an eye catching combination yellow and black is.


Come to think of it, I also love blue and orange. 



and pink and grey! he he.......  


: ) 
Awww - a tummy full of milk!

Just in case......

....you happen to be busy when I invite you to my beach house, here's a little teaser. 





phots found here - thank you!

Ok, so it's not exactly my beach house but I would like it to be! And it's someway as to how I would like mine to look, so I am not stretching the truth toooo far.  The clinchers for me are the kitchen and the exterior. I mean the kitchen looks so inviting and workable and any house with a Mr. Ed door out front is a sure winner for me! 
Happy Monday!

Honestly....

.....I didn't realise that when I used the word "sporadic" in my last post, that it would mean "hardly ever"!! I 
honestly didn't! School holidays are in full swing and we have gone away for a few days so I won't kid myself any more. I can now truthfully tell you that I won't be back until the hols are over. 
In the meantime though I did what every self respecting blogger has done before me and baked the famed Rainbow cake for my sons 13th birthday! 


It looks a bit pyscho 'cos I didn't have and couldn't find any gel colours, (must stock up though for the future cakes as I will most certainly be baking this every birthday now......!) so these are your average supermarket colours...er ummm.... ramped up a bit! ( code for tipped in half a bottle!) The result was luminous and very yummy! 
I have to say that it didn't turn out nearly as well as Anna's  but it was pretty good and there were gasps all round when we cut in to it! 
I also used Meredith's recipe from here and it is a cracker. The cake is buttery and delicious and we smothered it in cream cheese icing. 

So what do you give a 13 year old boy I hear you ask? Well, exactly what he wants if peace and harmony are a priority..............



A skateboard. Phew - one day it will be a car so I am only too happy to oblige when we are talking small wheels......
Happy holidays!
