Celestial intervention

I've been looking for the perfect accent for a little colour themed display I'd created a couple of weeks ago using books so I was pretty happy to spot this 'Billy Button' bottle vase by Angus and Celeste at the Fed Square market on the weekend. I've been spying their beautiful ceramics for a while - the hardest part is choosing!

Markit this weekend

If you are in Melbourne this weekend you may want to pop by Markit @ Fed Square featuring lots of fabulous wares. I am excited to be going to a market as a shopper for a change! My main reason to visit though is to see my favourite jewellery designer from Queensland -  Nicole from Hot Toffee . I think I will have to treat myself to yet another pair of her beautiful handmade earrings. Take a peek here.

Singapore daydream

This time last year I was wandering lazily through the beautiful Orchid Gardens in Singapore so today I have been flicking through my holiday snaps like this one.

I am reminded I should make more of an effort to have my digital photos printed and create some good old fashioned photo these 'beautiful accordion style design influenced by the horizontal scrolls and folding screens of traditional Japanese art' found online at Notemaker.

How fantastic are these photographic prints? Entitled 'Bag Adventures' they are the creations of Melbourne photographer Esther Frieda.

Odd Molly

Lyssy May has long been a fan of Odd Molly (Stockholm). This gorgeous damask number with embroidered detail is on my most coveted list for an upcoming adventure to escape the Winter.

Happy Mothers Day

Special wishes to all the Mums today. This is a favourite pic of mine once taken in my Grandmother's kitchen. It encapsulates a lot of the joy our family gatherings here particularly amongst the lineage of females - home baking in the cake tins, cups of tea and sunlight streaming in the window with lots of conversation and laughs. I hope you have a few moments of simple pleasures today.
