So long

Please forgive me – i have been busying myself organising for the trip of a lifetime. I am off to Las Vegas tomorrow then to LA and a long drive up the PCH to San Francisco. We hope to come back adventure worn and changed as people. I will try my best to share this […] Read more…

Where'd the time go?

Do you ever click a link while browsing the internet and find you’ve spent half an hour sidetracked with it? I was just researching home makeovers and came across this site about a young American couple and their home renovations…such an interesting read and great before and after pictures. What a clever couple… Read more…

No Friend of Mine

Usually such a clean living person you will most of the time find my home minimal and clutter free. However this sneaky season has curled itself under my front door, made its way into every room, cast its cold winter light and left me and my possessions bedraggled!

Potted

Exhausted from the weekend, woke up from a deep sleep this morning. David’s brother and now sister-in-law got married on Saturday and it was the most perfect day! Haven’t got the energy to blog much today but I spent a day last week re-potting my plants and thought I would share my favourite one with […] Read more…

Marie Desbons

I guess the art of Marie Desbons wouldn’t usually be my art of choice, I tend to prefer more graphic and darker themed illustrations. However on this blustery September day I coudn’t resist a little French whimsy! I also love how extra magical her images look coupled with languid French text. C’est beau! Read more…
