Screen Shot 2013-09-24 at 1.24.38 PM

I love nothing more than connecting with local Creatives, so I was beyond chuffed when In the Cove‘s Jacky Barker invited me for a tour of the most marvellous homewares stores Lane Cove has to offer. In the space of a few hours we managed to squeeze in many gasp-worthy moments across three great stores – each of which was uniquely different from the other!

1 | I scored this bunny when I attended last week’s TheHome Spring Launch and finally gave him a home this weekend on my partner’s desk. I’m yet to name him, but I’ve concluded that he’s a bit of a ladies man who doesn’t mind a bit of a shandy here and there. Rather fitting then that I placed him beside my Pigeon & Weasel candle; he feels right at home here!

1 | I got invited for an exclusive store tour of Papaya in Mosman at the weekend and had a stunning time snapping their wares. What might surprise you is how many cute toys they have for kids (or big kids who love a playful home!). My fave creatures had to be these plush bunnies – hanging out in a basket by the Papaya courtyard. Store tour pics coming this week!

form, function and fun at freedom

P1110227

Freedom and I have had a long friendship. I recall saving up across several paycheques as an 18 year old and going to Freedom to get my first real bedroom setting; an amazing bed, tallboy and two bedside tables combination. Years on (I won’t¬†divulge¬†exactly how many) I still gravitate toward this homewares haven for the very same reasons I did back then; phenomenal furniture with form, function and fun. On with the store tour…

greenery, gold and giggles at garden life redfern

P1100545

I’ve always thought that the garden should be a little out of control, a bit untamed, a tad random and not too thought-out. I had never considered though – until my trip to Garden Life in Redfern – that it could also be a place for humour and fun. Needless to say, after hitting this Cleveland Street haven and eyeing off their wares, I am well and truly eager to make the garden a giggle-fest!

1 | I am not sure what you call an Easter version of Kris Kringle, but my office is doing one this week and I was so freakin’ excited to get my hands on one of these awesome paper bags – complete with bunny stamp and pom pom – at Paper2 in Surry Hills. I always say the presentation is just as important as the present itself, so once I fill mine with oodles of chocolate I certainly hope the recipient enjoys it!

1 | Easter is just around the corner and Bed Bath ‘N’ Table is inundated with a range of stock that is worthy of diving into (in a purely figuratively way, of course). These rabbits, complete with their own little egg holder, are beyond cute. I’m hoping to get back there soon to photography the entire range so you can see it in all its glory!
