Merry Christmas

To those who took the time to read my ramblings, to comment, to offer your thoughts and encourage my little creative venture I say a very sincere thank you.  Merry Christmas to you all.

Whoa Nelly has big plans for 2013.
Oh, does she have plans...

All I want for Christmas... this house in Byron Bay!! Ok, a little greedy perhaps but I stumbled across this beauty and totally flipped out. Some people just have style in spades. To me this is a perfect example of well designed decor without being pretentious or overdone. It's warm, welcoming and practical yet oh so stylish.

Timber (my fave) with a bit of a plantation feel.

I have no words!

See you can use pink in a girls room without it looking Disney!


Failing Santa's delivery of the aforementioned abode I am over the moon with my actual Christmas gift ...a piece of Pip Boydell art.  I got a limited addition Reef Oil print and I'm nuts for it.  I want to get it framed and hung before I share. I also got to meet Pip and she is as fab in real life as her Instagram and Blog portray. I'm so inspired by creative and talented people. 

Merry Christmas to all.  

Blog ya later!

Tree house...

We're all excited. My Dad is coming to stay this week to build my boys a tree house for Christmas. We have a huge old mango tree in the back yard that is screaming out for a little boy Clubhouse. With 2 sons and 2 nephews it is a well loved, well climbed tree and about to become Boy Heaven.

I'm really excited.  I also think it's the greatest Christmas gift ever.  I'll be sure to keep you posted with lots of photos. Of course I am thinking ahead to 'decor'...think navy and white outdoor fabric, pirate flag, rope ladder etc. I swear boy decor is the most fun.

So this is more 'cubby' than 'tree' but I like the vintage twist.

In other non-news I have launched 'Operation Splash'. Basically Jack and I have decided we need a pool. Of course I know exactly what I must be rectangular with a glass fence, sandstone edging and a grey timber deck. I'm currently being met with resistance in the form of 'pool cleaning and maintenance woes' as well as 'what about my grass...I'll have to re-turf'. I suspect this will be a long term project...stay tuned.

How bout this heat!

Don't you hate it when folks say that?? Yep, it's hot.  It gets hot here in South East Queensland in Summer...stop carrying on as if it's come as a surprise.  Anyway, clearly this heat is making me cranky ;-)

I love these images from Craft Victoria and wanted to share them. I think they'!

That couch is the bomb!
