..... she has posted some pics! One of my best friends, Miss Emma has just posted some pics of her 'studio apartment' - as you can see, she has amazing style and a beautiful eye, she blows me away. Head over to her site to see the rest of the pics, and join the queue of people wanting her styling and interior design expertise, I can't wait until she is officially 'open for business!' xxx

Look at me.... again!

Thank you to the fabulous Marie Nichols, super stylist for including some special treasures from my store in her "One Day Bathroom Makeovers" feature in the August issue of Real Living Magazine.
"Bright, Bold and Fun" - sitting there like a good little girl is "Dublin" a beautiful large bunny from Danish brand Maileg.
"Sophisticated Glamour" - squint and look closely - on the bone inlay table is the pretty small otto jar and the beautiful black bone inlay box.
Oh - and speaking of bone inlay - gosh I love the bone inlay furniture. You too? - I can take orders for bone inlay furniture, send me an email if you want further details. info@brownbuttontrading.com.au

Treasure Hunt

Before today, I could name you a million things I would rather be doing.... 'thrifting'? pffft.
But goodness me, I'm now a convert! Emma, Kate and I had a fabulous day sourcing wonderful finds for Kate's home. I'm not going to give too much away as I know Kate will share all the details - but there is nothing better than watching Emma in her element, doing what she loves and doing it all so well (that is her measuring this FABULOUS headboard through the window of a shop that had closed for the day.... lucky the owner was still around - saw us acting like weirdos outside her shop and let us in!) - needless to say I'm exhausted, so many things on this weekend, this little chicken is off to bed, on a Saturday night at 8:06pm *puts hand to head with fingers making out an "L" for Loser on her forehead*. Sweet dreams! x

I've always been a huge fan of winter - but my golly gosh - it has been FREEZING this winter! I don't normally feel the cold (i swear its early onset menopause at 31 or something....) but whhoooaaa I've been feeling it!
So as much as I am willing on Summer, I'm going to make sure I also enjoy all the fabulousness that is winter as well. Keep warm my pretties xx

As you have probably guessed from the simplicity that is my blog and shop - I'm not exactly brimming with IT expertise. Sometimes when I stop and think that I email, blog, facebook, twitter, skype, have an online shop, own a cool looking Mac computer thingy and a notebook - I think.... FRAUD! Why? because I seriously have the 'black thumb of IT'.
I get so frustrated with all things formatting, HTML, not knowing how to photoshop stuff, have ideas of swish little email newsletters etc, want to do thing with my blog and shop in particular but have N-O I-D-E-A how to go about it.
Soooo, I'm asking a huge favour - what should I do? I know the best way is to get in the experts but I think I should know a little more myself first - what should I be learning - programs etc wise? What courses should I look at investing my time and money in to? HTML for dummies?, Indesign, photoshop, etc etc? - thank you, thank you xx
