Supermarket Sarah

My gorgeous friend Kitty (who incidentally has a fab blog called Three Piece Suite) put me onto this very cool little website created by a woman who ditched the corporate world to turn her London home into an online shop - check out Supermarket Sarah, you'll love it :)

Pattern Happy

All week I've been obsessing over beautiful patterns and it would seem that today is no exception!  Bold patterns in a monochromatic palette are the current focus of my adoration... (a lace patterned floor - now who could resist that!).

Saturday Morning Stuff

I wouldn't trade my Saturday morning inspiration time for anything!  I make a pot of tea, light a candle and sit myself down at my desk to traul through magazines and websites.... this brief little window of opportunity can keep me going all week!  Here are some images that caught my eye this morning... 

Is anyone else loving crucifixes and religious icons at the moment, or is just me?

Crepe paper!  I just want to touch it!

Inspiration boards make me so happy - the perfect snapshot of the conception of an idea

Yellow!  Spring is so very nearly sprung...

Random collections of beautiful stuff... heaven!

The bottle addict couldn't resist this image - I'm off to pick some flowers...

Have a lovely Saturday everyone :)

Lost & Found

I rediscovered Venucci Design today - hooray!  I really can't believe I had forgotten about them.  They are a QLD based company with some fantastic, quirky product (hidden in amongst some slightly questionable product).  I have used their accessories to great effect in a number of displays and love their distinctly European flavour!  (the deer plate is my fave)

Marakesh Monday

Do you ever have days when you literally crave pattern?  Today has been all about Moroccan design for me... 

Maybe it's time I did another Moroccan themed house?

New Addition to the Family

My beautiful work friends gave me these amazing vintage scales as a leaving present... I am so enraptured with them I keep trying to weigh things (my mobile phone weighs 4 oz).  I have searched high and low for scales for years... I still can't believe I now own the perfect set!

South African Style

I love the understated and classic elegance of the interior of Le Franschhoek Hotel in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.  I think I could handle staying here for a few days!

Hip, Hip, it's Friday!

The day is drawing to a close and you know what that means..... play time!  I have collected some funny little finds to inspire a creative weekend - chin, chin everyone!

The bold background pattern combined with the yellow birdy spells L.O.V.E

A Cinderalla cut-out from an original Disney vinyl record... very Prince Charming!

This quirky little illustration is so 'Famous Five'... I'd like to have a series of them

Not being a coffee drinker, my acquaintance with take-away cups is rare - however, should they start selling it in these pretty containers I might just have to acquire a taste!

The Amazing Carolyn Quartermaine

When I was living in London in 2003, I discovered the ethereal and colourful work of Carolyn Quartermaine  and have remained a fan ever since... she is an artist, designer and stylist who was HUGE back in the day but I still love her fabric collections... see what I mean!

Eclectic Perfect

The term 'eclectic' is often over-used when describing interiors but I thought this home was a fantastic example of what the Oxford Dictionary defines it as..... 'taking ideas from a wide range of sources'.

Lovely Bits

Some gorgeous images that made my day....  

I adore this one (I'm sure it has something to do with the old wooden ruler!)

The row of buttons on the bottom of this tag is gorgeous

Duck Egg Blue icing?  I will eat this cake in heaven!

Pastels on dark backgrounds - this month's love

Tuesday Happy Snaps

I was very fortunate to be driving past Balmoral Beach in Sydney this afternoon when the sunshine and my camera beckoned.....
