the white stuff – laundry …

[Laura Casey Interiors] Oh my. Isn’t this a beautiful work space? … I see more of the beautiful, less of the work vibe in this room, I’m thinking. Things I love … the sleek lines of the white cupboards (always a classic look), the super cute little window (often these utlitarian rooms are dark and tucked […]

chilly stuff …

It must be said that despite all the travel and a broken leg, the boys consider their ski trip to Furano in Japan an outstanding success. I guess you have to understand that we don’t really get powder snow in Australia … it just isn’t cold enough. So to play in powder for a week […]

the end of the week …

Sad to say, our ‘boy free’ week is over, and life is back to its chaotic self … the boys have been skiing in Japan for the last week, and the girl and I have made the most of it. Friday was their last day of skiing before setting off for a bus trip and […]

the white stuff – bedroom …

[saifou] I find it really difficult to pick just one image of a white bedroom, so I’ve gone with an ‘almost’ white bedroom! Things I love … the pale timber ceiling and floor, the ceiling to floor length white gauzy curtains, the peaceful blue walls, the sumptuous white bedding, and the pop of colour in […]

today was a good day …

Yes, it was a good day … I’m coming towards the end of my mini-break before I head back to work. Yesterday I mentioned we had a list that we were working through and today we powered through it. Drop the girl’s car off for a service … check! Pick up glasses from optometrist … […]

afternoon tea …

The girl has taken this week off work, to have a little break before College starts again for her, so I’ve joined her and taken three days of annual leave. We are having a lovely time making lists, and ticking things off as we work through out lists. We needed to find her a long […]

the streets of sydney …

[the streets of Sydney] A couple of days ago, our family made the trek into Sydney to attend a ceremony where my DH was admitted to the bar after years of part-time study while he worked full-time. We were so proud of him, as he was ‘moved’ then ‘accepted’ into the legal profession, then watched […]

the white stuff – bathroom

[Urrutia Design] This week I’d like to share this beautiful white bathroom with you, created by Urreutia Design. Things I love … I’m really loving the black frame around the mirror. It draws one’s eye to the mirror in the white, white room, making it a feature. I like the clean lines of the room, […]

hexagon quilt – where to begin …

I’ve had some emails recently asking some ‘hexagon quilt’ questions so I thought I would pop some information here, if you are starting out on the ‘hexagon trail’. Be aware that making hexagons is very addictive, folks … so hard to start and finish with one hexagon. You might find yourself dreaming hexagons, thinking about […]

After experimenting a little, I have […]
