My new duvet cover?

I think after having the same duvet cover for the last 5 years (and still going strong thanks Cath), I  have found two options from Country Road's latest drop - what you think? Maybe I need both...

Gift Fair Treats

Just thought I'd show you a few of the treats I got at the Gift Fair, well these are the things I bought home, still more to come on order!...

These cute little bowls (from General Eclectic) are actually dipping bowls but I got them to be my new desert/cereal bowls as I'm going to focus on controling my portions!


I thought theses little milk jugs were so pretty (obviously from the same place). I got these (and the bowls above) for wholesale plus 20% discount so I was super pleased. One for me (the yellow) and two for the gift cupboard.

And then these little candlestick holders (obviously I haven't bought any candles yet) but these are quite popular here in little old Hamilton (lots of our friends have them) so I thought I'd make the most of getting them at wholesale prices while I could.

ps. I even took the photos with my big camera!
pps. Finally a blog post!

Dandelion Tile

LOVE LOVE LOVE these tiles from Claesson Koivisto Rune. I was in two minds about posting these because part of me thought I'd keep them secret so I could have them for my dream home and then no one else would know about them. But then I realised that they would sit in my 'virtual scrapbook' for about 30 years because at this rate that's how far away I am from building my dream home.

So, I will share...

I know this wasn't quite the big 'return to blogging' post I had imagined in my head....but it's a return...and a (second) start!

Cedric Bihr

I recently rediscovered Cedric Bihr (photographer/model/scientist) after reading about his idyllic life in LA on this cool website, check out his dreamy photos, such beautiful light and i especially like his landscapes at night series with long exposures. (last 4 images).
