Peeking In....

I just had to pop back in to say hi and to check out a few of my favourite blogs. I've been having the most wonderful, restful holiday with my family at the beach. Being away from my computer for a couple of weeks has really done me the world of good!! But, I couldn't keep myself away any longer. Here are a few posts I've been enjoying today....

Cassandra from Coco + Kelley is hosting a 'Crowning the Colour of the Year' week which is so much fun....

Kimberlee over at Brown Button has just posted some great pictures of one of my favourite Noosa stores, Signature on Hastings....

Trina from La La Lovely just posted about a recent article on India Hicks in Cookie Magazine....always love seeing pictures of India Hicks' life....

And finally...

I loved this post by Courtney....

Well that's about it from me for the time being as I'm still supposed to be on a blogging break so I will have to keep myself away now until I get back on the 19th January. Hope you all had a great Christmas and do stay tuned as I have some beautiful things in store for you upon my return!!

Welcome back Ana.
I already told you I love your blog because you post here a lot of things about interior design that I like too. Here in Brazil we have, in some cities an event, called "Casa Cor"(color house). It's famous in all the country and it hapens a long the year. I have a post on my blog, where I wrote about two interiors designers created a room for "Casa Cor". The room is called "Sala de Jogos e Lareira"(play room and fireplace). visit me. http://amigadamoda.blogspot.com

Oh Anna,
Thank you so much for the mention! Happy New Year to you, hope you had a lovely break away, I know I certainly did.
The feature of your Straddie home in Country Style was just stunning, congratulations.
I think I'm going to have to send my Aunty and Uncle in your direction for some decorating advice. They have just bought a very run down (but amazing all at the same time!) old Queenslander on Dewar Terrace, currently living in a very modern and new home I think they'll need to change their style somewhat. I'll be sure to pass on your details!

Have a lovely weekend xxx

mamma mia. I just came upon your blog through that natural evolution process known as clicking on links. What a lovely place this is. Very inspiring: with so much decor work ahead of me, it's like breathing and eating see such beautiful images. Best of the new year to you.
