Vintage Aprons

What could twenty cents buy in 2007? This vintage apron. Here it is with the rest of my 'collection' - three aprons and a pinnie, really. I don't wear them - I just love to have them and look at them.

Stylish Rooms

I can't believe how beautiful these walls are. Thank you, Style Court, for these gorgeous rooms.

Happy New Year 2

These images are from a great blog I've just discovered - Decorno. I love her term - sloppy chic - it's an aesthetic I can identify with.

Happy New Year

More images from Desire to Inspire, to inspire me in the new year.

More boatshed pics

Just a few more images I didn't have time to post earlier. I particularly love the ceiling rose which I've propped up against a wall on the back porch.

A White Christmas - at last

Finally, some images of the boatshed, now painted white. Some of the things I particularly love are my op shop finds - the white painted mirror, large shell, art deco mirror, and pear-patterned Johnson Brothers plates on the dresser. I have also temporarily covered the box seat with my Florence Broadhurst Circles and Squares fabric, until I can cover the footstool with it.

More Beautiful Images

These images are from Mrs Blandings' website and contain so many things I love, I don't know where to start. The fact that one looks like an old Dutch still life complete with nautilus cups is just amazing, and then there's the boatshed-like roofline of another.

Inspirational Images

These beautiful rooms are care of Desire to Inspire. They are from the portfolio of Katie Sellers.

Bali Style

These photos of Cafe Bali, Seminyak, were taken from Absolutely Beautiful Things. They have three of my favourite things - white chairs, mismatched mirrors, and plate-like shapes on a wall. I'd be happier without the tablecloths, but it still has a great, beachy feel.

Boatshed Christmas

Even though the boatshed is small, I try and make it festive with decorations from Ikea, some pretty pink ornaments and a tablescape in red, white and green.
