snippets



1. Lalie likes to sit in the sunroom and talk to the birdies through timber louvers. The gorgeous rocking horse was a first birthday gift from her cousins.

2. Fallen palm branches, collected and wrapped with coloured yarn.

3. A basket of vintage fabrics waiting to be given a new life (now I just need a sewing machine!).

4.  A delightful 'tiny happy' velveteen rabbit, handmade by Melissa from rosey vintage velveteen and floral cotton.

5. Where the sun and stars collide.

6. Just add water. Nudie babe playing with her fishy friends; Wally the walrus, Lucille the leopard seal, Octavius the octopus, Steven the stingray and Squire the squid.


Happy Monday! I hope you had a relaxing weekend :)

  2. I am a new reader and I think your blog is just fantastic - you certainly know how to turn the mundane into magic and kudos to you for creating a gorgeous environment space for your darling daughter.

    P.S. on an unrelated note, I'm wondering where you sourced your daughter's play mat (below image) from?

  18. Why am I not surprised that you have my dream windows and shutters in your house - and those stars and a cutie nudie... all just wonderful!

  19. Love those coloured glass panes. Your tropical life is so far removed from my temperate one in Tasmania, but I love to follow your blog just to see the differences.

  24. Hi Monika - I purchased the stars in a local store that has since closed down, sorry I can't be of more help!

    Anonymous - the playmat is actually a meditation mat purchased at 'loot homewares' - a Balinese/ indian import store. xx
