A Cup of Life

"Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company."
Author Unknown

Oh how I love a cup of hot sugary tea, followed by a delicious morel or two! Whether in the company of friends or a really good book, it is a precious cup to have by my side on this freezing cold, wet day. xo

"Part decorating advice, part inspiration, the two women's blogs have become a ritual in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people,
mainly women, across the globe."

Just wanted to pass along a big congratulations to Judy from Lily-G for her Courier Mail mention today! You can read the rest of the story here. Anna Spiro from ABT is also mentioned, well done Ladies! You and your stores look absolutely gorgeous!

Good Food, Even Better Friends

After a big week, the weekend is finally here. It was lovely to spend the morning with beautiful friends. Tomorrow breakfast by the bay and then we are off to find treasure in Brisbane's antique heart-land, Paddington! Should be lots of fun. For now I am off to arrange flowers and make lunch for my family and friends with the fabulous fresh produce from the Farmers Market. Happy Weekend xo.

All White

Loving this bedroom. My bedroom is nothing like this one. All that mine has in common with this one is the colour of the bed linen! My own room has a more masculine, tailored feel. I love the mirrors used as a headboard. I would love to create a room like this for my daughter when she is older. Somehow I think she will be requesting more colour!

A Good Egg

Easter time is so close! I love Easter. The weather, the long weekend always spent with family. Easter is a reflective time and has a great relaxed feeling about it. Like many Aussie families, we always spend the weekend away at the beach. It's a great tradition and a fun way to farewell Summer for the year.

Another thing I love about Easter is the crafts! The egg blowing and dying, card making and Easter baskets. I love these baskets, so much fun and the kids will be still playing with these long after the chocolate is in their bellies! I have been collecting things to put in baskets for the kids to play with at our Sunday lunch. I hope the girls love them! I do!!

Delicious Autumn

I'm so excited that is finally Autumn here. It has been a long, hot summer and I am looking forward to cooler days. The mornings have a delightfully familiar chill in the air. Autumn is my favourite time of the year, Easter-time and lots of holiday weekends, which means weekends away camping (or should I say, Glamping!) and lots of tea and scones!
