Spring Fever! | September 02, 2013

We're getting our first taste of the warmer months ahead! Sunshine is forecast for the next few days... the first hints of colour have sprung up in our garden... Sukie has returned to her favourite pastime of having a snoozy afternoon sunbake on our backyard deck. Very excited for the return of Spring! :)

Two Beautiful Shops... | June 17, 2013

Recently I stumbled upon a couple of beautiful online shops...

Trish and co. (shown above) has a current collection that is inspired by "The curious gardener" and consists of lovely botanical themed wares.

Olive Manna is actually an old favourite of mine. I haven't visited in awhile and was surprised to find lots of pretty new things like this gorgeous fabric rope and barkboard.

Someone needs to stop me from this, recently developed, online shopping addiction.

Hen and Hammock | February 19, 2010

Hen and Hammock have a stylish and environmentally-friendly selection of garden products including vintage and recycled items. In particular, I love their "Kids Corner".  The hand-carved "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" swing is so gorgeous! Love their style.

The Cosy Outdoors | February 01, 2010

It's the height of summer in Melbourne and my thoughts are floating around cosy picnics and relaxed outdoor entertaining amongst colourful summery fabrics and cushions. Here's a collection of visual inspiration from around the web:

One: An innovative DIY outdoor lounge idea from Living Etc. Magazine

Two: Cath Kidston floral fabric tent. Don't know if this is still available but it's such a gorgeous concept! (via Brigadeiro de Colher)

Three: Go "Glamping" with a Laura Ashley fabric tent. (via Brigadeiro de Colher)

Four: LOVE the relaxing, neutral tones in this outdoor setting. Would be great to set this up in the middle of a forest somewhere. Source unknown. (via Brigadeiro de Colher)

Five: Cutesy outdoor caravan dining setting. Fabrics from No Chintz.

Six: Love this outdoor bed! Photo by Annika Vannerus
