Holy Flip!

LOVE THIS. White. Colour. Sophistication. Fun. A day off and I've cleaned the house, sorted out my internet issues (well, not completely, but enough to allow me to sit here and 'pin' to my hearts content while catching up on season 4 and 5 of Gossip Girl), gathered quotes to install my wallpaper and I'm going to order my dining chairs as well. Happy Day! x

Happy Australia Day

Happy Australia Day! I don't think Aussies are known for being all that patriotic, not as patriotic as other nations - I think that it is because we don't tend to take ourselves too seriously. I'm not saying that we aren't proud to be Australian - its just that we probably don't show it as often and loud as we should.

I lived abroad for six months last year and I think that has definitely made me more loud and proud about the country I call home. My time away has definitely made me appreciate and take notice of what I have, and what a gorgeous country we live in.

I finally watched "Australia" while I was overseas (ironic i know) and I cried through the whole movie.... the countryside was breathtaking (and I'm always a sucker for a baz luhrmann flick - bring on the great gatsby I say!)

I'm spending the hot summer's day out on the high seas with friends on their boat, with lamb cutlets and lamingtons on the menu - Loving everything this great country has on offer.

And who knows Miss Heidi fingers and toes crossed, you may even be celebrating this day on Australian soil this time next year..... xx

Hajek at Home

I love me some selby in my inbox, especially the past week - Olaf Hajek's Berlin home is fabulous. Who said blackboard walls were 'so yesterday'?? - he uses it so well in his kitchen. He is an artist after all. Fun yet sophisticated, I'm hoping that is where the decorating of the 'SFC' is heading. This is certainly inspiring.I'm thinking there is a small space in my new kitchen that needs a lick of blackboard paint (i'm no artist but i'll be getting some artistic pals over to decorate it.. Emma??...Pippa?? swap a stir fry for some artistic flair in my new kitchen??....)
Thanks to the selby for the images, see more here, and see Olaf's website here.

It's like riding a bike....

It feels like forever since I posted, and it kind of has been. But its a good thing. I've realised I spend too much time planning and plotting on how good things could be, when there is no way that any of it is going to happen if i spend so much time blogging and talking about it, I need to DO it. Actually, this isn't a new realisation, but this is the first time I've started taking action. So, I'm not sure how often I will post, but I know when I do, it is because I have something fabulous to share, not because I feel I have to. And surely that is a win/win for everyone! Stay tuned..... image seen over at my first little place (gorgeous, fabulous blog btw, go and catch up with Sarah if you don't already x)
