Sunday | April 14, 2013

Mark, Sukie and I spent a quiet sunday at Emerald Lake Park. It's been awhile since we've had a little family day trip and we thought we'd take advantage of the good weather before it disappears. The forest walk is a nice little hiding spot to get lost for awhile...

Oh, and If you're ever in the area, you should try The General Food Store for lunch. Yum.

I want them all!! | April 12, 2013

So, I basically dropped my iPhone yesterday and put a few chips into my polka dot Kate Spade case! First world problems, I know, but I must admit, I did allow myself a moment to grieve :(

Don't you just love these phone cases from Rifle?! Would it be okay if I just got them all? Who would like to buy them for me? ;-)

Check out the full collection here.

I'm also loving these cases from Julia Kostreva. So pretty...

Collecting Rainbows... | April 11, 2013

As a three year Anniversary gift from Mark's parents we received a beautiful new bed! It's perfect- super comfy and not at all conducive to early risings.

Our bedroom, presently very bare and bathed in an over-abundance of white, was screaming for just a little something to fill the void. So I draped a string of colourful lights over my bedside ladder shelf. It's just added that little bit of warmth and fun. I think it's a cute temporary solution!

Speaking of colours... whilst out and about recently I just had to take a happy snap when I was confronted with the unexpected sight of a beautiful rainbow of balloons at the entrance to a car wash. There really should be more of these around.

Life Tastes Better with Sprinkles | March 28, 2013

For our Australia Day BBQ back in Jan, I put together this little Ice-Cream Sundae bar. (Yes, I am obsessed with Sundae bars.) It is now a permanent fixture in our home.

It may appear to be intended for small children but no, it, in fact, catered for full-grown adults. All of the objects I've used to style it are part of my own collection because, basically, I am a large child. This table design is totally a manifestion of my colourful, eclectic and exceedingly infantile mind. 

And yes, perhaps including a pic of Audrey Hepburn these days is a tad cliché, but I don't care, she's awesome. (It was a toss up between her and Audrey Tautou.)

Oh and, by the way, if you ever plan to use plastic amber bottle dispensers for your toppings, don't get anything too thick- it will be a massive fail :(

I'm so in love with my test tube rack of colourful sprinkles! (I've re-used some old Happy Lab tubes.)

Confetti sprinkles are the bomb.

Happy Easter/Passover weekend everybody! :)

Bits of Happy... | March 27, 2013

Happiness comes from... discovering a new candy store in Prahran called The Red Balloon... the cute pie chart LoveHate brooch I picked up from Lulu in Balaclava... decorating mini wooden spoons with coloured paint and patterned tape... playing with my new Motex to create neon labels... my ever-expanding collection of cute hairclips... and our beloved mutt Sukie.

Also, doesn't this Gorman print make you smile?
