Everything Fabulous? - an absolute understatement

Gosh I love a good tumblr. Mary Ruffle is an absolute staple - and she always offers me a link that sends me off to a total state of bliss, hours spent looking at gorgeous images on various sites when I should be packing up orders for my shop, or ironing, or going to bed!

Today? it's Everything Fabulous - and it truly is. Every image she has collected is heaven. The above are just some of my favourites... go to her site to see them all. Sigh. Or her blog. Double Sigh. x

Thinking of dear friends

My thoughts and prayers are with Shelley, her darling husband and beautiful boys right now. I met these amazing people almost a year ago. I'm really not sure what else to say - darling Shelley, I know your divine Mr S will be back bigger and stronger, take care and a thousand kisses your way xxx

Latest Crush

Ok kids, if you haven't read the latest Lonny. Do it. Now. SOOOOO good - that Michelle Adams is too good. Thank you for such a delicious issue! My favourite spread? Elizabeth Bauer's place. I'm all Jennifer Jason Lee in Single White Female about this - I want her house, her business, her style. Yikes.

It's Friday again - what the?! - plans for the long weekend anyone? I'm looking forward to dinner with the 'ladies' tonight, very excited about catching up with a friend who is back from Melbourne. McLaren Vale Sea and Vines Sunday, recover Monday and off to Sydney for work Tuesday morning! busy busy. catch you soon x

Perfume Purchase

This is my latest. And I'm loving it. Kind of like a 'day version' of Armani Code (note to self: must get more) - me likely how I smell. Ahh, if only it made me look like Julia Restoin....

Now I hope my darling goddaughter approves of the new perfume..... Last weekend while colouring, she declared "I don't like you. You smell". Whatever Ruby, you are 2 and a half going on 16, what would you know?......

Hats off to the new arrivals at Table Tonic!

See it? There. On the Wall. There it is. That beautiful piece of heaven. The juju hat. I need the Juju Hat. Always have. And now I can get one. From Table Tonic (have you visited? - awesome shop full of must have pieces) - currently available in yellow and violet and soon to be available in a myriad of colours. Yes I know, not cheap, but so worth it. They are huge and so impressive, what a beautiful piece of art. Love your work Louise x

Stunning Stamp Of Approval

I luurve beautiful stationary and stunning fonts. Unfortunately my handwriting still looks like that of a ten year old.... I've often thought of getting personalised stationary for a newly married couple or a house warming but have often found that it seems incredibly expensive for what it is.

Behold the personalised stamp.... genius!!! I think these are absolutely stunning and the perfect cute little house warming gift. Found on Etsy (of course) - I love NoteTrunk and Primele (their stamps are featured above) - so affordable and so effective. I think I need one for me and one for the shop, now to decide on a design....
