Dear Seed.....

.... any chance you could make this in 'grown up size'? This skirt is truly fabulous and it would be a crime to make us 'girls' in our 30's miss out. It's the least you can do, having not existed when I was a young one. It was all velour tracksuits, applique jumpers and skivvy's. Perhaps just add a couple of inches to the length though, I am a lady after all.....

Killer skirt by seed for 1-10 years old (so unfair....) - see it here.

Getting my 'garden' on


Friday again? I'm not complaining. I'm planning a weekend of pottering around the house, maybe even potting some plants. I'm lucky enough to have one of Adelaide's most fabulous nurseries just around the corner. I potted herbs two weeks ago and they haven't died yet, so maybe I should step it up a bit this weekend!

Have a fabulous one x

Just hear those sleigh bells jinglin'



 
What did you used to leave out for Santa to fill with goodies each Christmas Eve? My sister and I used pillow cases at the end of the bed. The biggest we could find, of course. Until Santa got smart and would put a blown up balloon in the for good measure as well - make it look more full than it was. humph.
We would always travel to the city for Christmas and stay with my Grandparents. I was SURE one night I actually heard Santa and his reindeer's, come in and fill our pillow cases with presents and eat the milk and biscuits. I heard bells you see. Years later I realise. Dad used to wear a sandals (I know... at least we got him out of the socks and sandals combo...), and the buckle used to sound a lot like a bell when he walked....
 
I don't think Santa knows where I live anymore, but I think this would make a great carry all to the beach this summer as well!

Prepared and Glad





I'm a broken record I know, but there is so much I want and need for the little SFC. And I spend way too much time 'pinning' than out looking and buying... but there is a reason for that and I'll get there eventually.

Art. Work. To me? an essential. And Hilary Herrmann's work has been a favourite for a long time, thanks to Shannon Fricke (how fab was she on the last cover of Real Living, not to mention on 'The Living Room' last Friday night?

I think Hilary's pieces are really accessible as original artwork and I would really like a big one in the living room. But in the meantime I'd settle for one of the works above, perhaps for the office at work? (i'm thinking of changing up the gallery wall for one piece) - it will be small on the wall but I kind of like that idea. These two pieces are particularly appealing at the moment. Father Christmas? Pretty Please?

Lovely bits of Lonny - October Issue











Lonny is without a doubt the pioneer of the online home magazines - and still the best. The October issue would have to be one of my favourite issues yet, and I'll call that even after the 'initial flick' (i have a systematic way of reading mags - online or paper. Initial flick through. Then go back and read articles. Keep if it is a 'goodie') - Here are just some snap shots (read 'screen grabs') of my favourite images. And that was being quite strict, it could have easily been every page from the October issue. Thank you Michelle and Patrick. Absolute geniuses at work.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

You are allowed to be a little sceptical when your parents recommend a movie. But gosh they were on the money with this one. I watched "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" on my way back from Manila last Monday.

What a brilliant movie. Every character loveable in their own way. I laughed, I cried - soooo good.
It has just come out on DVD. If you haven't seen it yet, you must. x
