1 Month On...

It's been just over 1 month since my last post and as usual time seems to have flown by!  Busy days and weeks just keep on coming at us all but I must say, it's amazing what a couple of days away can do for your spirits.  We just spent the weekend at my cousin's beach side house in Northern New South Wales and I feel like I've been away for a week!!  Sometimes I forget how great a mini-break can make you feel.  The humdrum of daily life can be totally revived by just a couple of days away in a place you don't often visit.   

On such trips I love to bring home a few little goodies and being that I am totally captivated by Australian natives I couldn't help but snap a couple of branches off the beautiful big old banksia tree my cousin has in his front yard.  I arranged the large haul in a couple of vases which I placed on our fireplace mantel.  It's hard not to notice the natural beauty as you walk in the front door of our house.  I love that I can be reminded of these past few days as I look at the beautiful banksia flanking our mantel.

In shop news, we have had a lot of beautiful new treasures arrive.  If you visit the store on a Saturday you may have seen me in there with Max, my naughty yet spirited 2 year old.  It is always a demented hour or 2 that we spend in the store on a Saturday morning.  But I do love Saturdays in the shop.  There is such a nice casual vibe and I love having time to chat with you all.

As you can see above we have some beautiful new cushions and a very special vintage framed Indian skirt in our back lounge room and we also just had a new delivery of the fabulous acrylic LOVESTAR love heart vases as below.  They can be hung on the wall or placed on a table and look fabulous when filled with fresh flowers!

Talking about out back lounge room at the store, if you haven't been in lately here's a little peek into our world {above}.

We have also been busy decorating some beautiful houses.  Here's a snapshot of a bedroom we finished for some clients last week. 

I also recently hung a large art cluster wall at my parent's house.  Lots of old treasured pictures, a couple of which belonged to my great grandmother are now up and being admired by all who see them.

I think that brings you up to speed but keep checking my instagram for more up-to-date info and pictures!!
