I adore this

It is my birthday soon and this is apart of my not very subtle birthday wish list!

thank you

So sigh...wandered down to the Healesville Market on Sunday and had a lovely time. I am always so pleasantly surprised by the kindness of the stall holders and the sweetness of the customers. So many lovely people came by to say hi and purchase some treasures for themselves. It was a really lovely day. Thank you to all of those who dropped in, I love having little chats with you and love hearing what amazing projects you also have on the go. Hope to see you next month. x

i heart...umbrellas and books

Study is taking up so much of my time of late that I am spending more time looking at the covers of books I want to read, rather than reading them. The Folio Society is just perfect for that. Beautifully designed and bound, these books are a treat to peruse from any angle.

I am loving these gorgeous new umbrella's from pare. Who says umbrella's have to plain old black? Why can't they be colourful and fun?

to market off to market!
We are heading out to the Healesville Market this Sunday (April 4th). So drop in and say Hi and, as it happens, Happy Easter.

I have a new mug.

A new favourite mug to be precise.

You may think it is ugly.

You make think it is strange.

But I love it.

Why do I love it so?

Because it came all the way from my dear friend LadyJamie in the UK. She came good on her promise to get me my own Lady Di & Prince Charles Wedding commemoration mug. Oh what joy! My morning coffee is going to mean so much more and carry much more delight now that I have a Di & Charlie mug.

For more amazing LadyJamie treasures, check out LadyJamie Vintage online store, so many gorgeous vintage treasures!

blog love

I have to admit that I have come a little obsessed with the Ruche site, there are so many lovely things and fun DIY's. Their clothes are quite reasonably priced (until you add shipping to Oz! - as is the norm) and my 'wish list' is gaining items at an extraordinary rate! (including this top and bag!)
