Today

I think these lilies which we have in the shop at the moment are the prettiest lilies I have ever seen.

I am smitten with our new hot pink {well it's actually fluoro/neon pink} love heart fabric which just arrived onto my desk this morning.

This vintage rug in my office keeps me smiling all day.  I love it.

And these new baskets in the shop are calling out to me - "take me home".....

I love the stargazer Lily. Those were in my bridal bouquet...

Which brings me on to things of hearts-that pink material is such a fun graphic.

Love it.

Hope you have a great week!

Great fabric, I wish I had a place for something so bright in my home - maybe my daughter's room.

absolutely beautiful impressions

Count me in as another huge Anna Spiro admirer!! Wish you weren't half a world away! Makes me want to plan a trip to Australia sooner -- and Brisbane definitely -- just to come to your shop!! Oh well, at least we have your blog to look forward to each day.

Also, I share another of your admirer's comments -- please consider an Anna Spiro iPhone app. Would love to have something (calendar, whatever!) with your very special design style!

Love everything you do!

Oh, those beautiful flowers!

I was fortunate enough to have a florist decorate our mixed-use space last year for an event and spent the next week surrounded by them... it makes such a difference and they're *gorgeous*.

Here are the photos:

Lillies are my favourite flower to have in my home, and the colour of yours is stunning.

Flotsam Friends said...

My favourite flowers... I can only imagine how divine these smell. And I absolutely adore your incredible vintage rug. I'd love that in my workspace too... And I do want to take that basket home. I thought you might be interested in my beautiful turquoise and green vintage Villeroy & Boch plates (I think from memory you like that combo). Pruxxx
