1 | I’m in the process of doing over my office space at the moment with a bit of a monochromatic forest theme – and this darling little deer from Typo is the latest inclusion. I hit the store on Friday and bagged a few bargains, but this one was by far the standout. I am yet to name her though; any ideas?

creative finds reloaded: my 10 fave discoveries

1 | I went gaga for these washi tape candles from The Tealight Co earlier in the year. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the nicest ones and putting six glorious washi tape designs on tealights is a perfect example of this. The black snowflake tape was my fave back then and still is now. I got these through Superking Australia (and you can too).

1 | You may call it a rusty old bird cage, but I call this beauty – that I snapped at Halchemy Design in Newtown – the things vintage dreams are made of. I absolutely adore this sort of vibe and would love to pop a few giant candles in this gem for a splash of old-world-meets-new. The little bird they’ve perched inside just caps off this piece wonderfully, as does the subtle blue tones that are peeking through the rust. Are you a fan?

10 creative finds you never got to see

I was struck down with a cold this week, which meant getting out and about to snap some creative finds was very much off the cards. Thankfully, though, I have an entire vault of photos from my adventures around the traps; which means you get to see 10 very gorgeous finds that never made it onto my usual top seven. On with the show…

1 | I love street art when it’s done well and this piece – that I came across from an adventure in Fitzroy last year – is just amazing. I swear when I purchase a house, I want to find a street artist who can come and create something like this for me on a wall in my backyard. I know graffiti isn’t for everyone, but I love the urban and industrial nature of it. Please let me know if you’re aware of an artist who could do this for me!

mother’s day markets at the grounds

P1110717

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of The Grounds of Alexandria. I’ve shown you just how breathtaking this venue is before on my garden tour. So when I caught word that they were putting on Mother’s Day markets, well, it kicked my excitement levels into overdrive and of course, I had to check it out. From flowers to food to farm animals – it was all there – and I snapped it like a fiend for your viewing pleasure!

which-are-you-wednesday: clocks

Let’s face it – every home has a clock. But honing in on a particular style can be trickier than you think. In the first of my which-are-you-Wednesday posts, I’d like to get your buy-in on what sort of clock takes your fancy and describes your individual style. There are five to choose from so lock and load your choice and let me know which is you!

1 | I spotted these amazing apple pendants on the Modflowers blog this week and I’m absolutely smitten with them. The apples are hand crafted, while the fabric is vintage and sourced by Modflowers’ creator Sharon Everest. They’re in short supply at the moment but keep your eyes peeled for upcoming releases – and scope out Sharon’s Etsy store for some very happy fabric creations!

1 | I saw this polka dot Home Republic bedspread on the Adairs website on Friday and high-tailed it to the Supa Centa Moore Park on Saturday to grab this bad boy. I just love how happy it is. The pic above is a media image, sadly, but once I have it on my bed and my side tables are decked out appropriately you’ll see full pics. Side note; the underside is aqua. Too good!

1 | It’s no secret that I’m in love with local Kensington store Sky Parlour; this ‘Must Remember to Love’ print – set in an ornate cream frame – only makes the love flourish further. And what a good little gift for Valentine’s Day (even for yourself!).

Duo Love Bird Keyring Holders

1 | There’s nothing better for a creative than when someone buys you something you actually like (it’s rare, right?) and when my mother got me these duo bird keyring holders, she was on the money! They double as a whistle too, which is random, but at least I have something to attempt to train the cats with.
