Have a lovely week...

A little message of wisdom from here via weheartit.

I like everything about this interior...

I like the the mix of old and new.
I like the turquoise and white.
I like the vintage collectables.
I like the floorboards and the wallpaper.
I like the lightshades... 
and from what I can see of the kitchen I think I would like it too.
I like how it all comes together so perfectly.

Thanks to Oh, hello friend for the inspiration.

Typography love

Last week while I was looking at some design blogs during my lunchhour I stumbed upon typographer Camila Drozd. Such a talent and only a recent graduate from design school... make me feel quite hopeless!
Her work is amazing...

Tea Lights

How clever are these cup & saucer lights? Spotted here.


Hope you had a good weekend. I tried to stay off the computer and do some paintings and pottery and be generally a bit creative. Sometimes it's really nice to take a break from the digital world...

Love this shot from Audrey Hepburn Complex
It feels a little 'Alice in Wonderland' to me.

Antonella Arismendi

Amanda from Here Come's The Sun totally made my day after posting about photographer Antonella Arismendi. What dreamy light... I wanted to post every shot on her website but I'd better not. You should pay her a visit here.
My favourites were this collection...

and this one...

finders keepers faves

Hello, sorry for lack of posts. Life has been busy! This week I'm going post my favourite designers/artists/inspiring people from Finders Keepers. There were so many amazing stalls there... actually I don't think there was even a bad one, they were all interesting and inspiring and super-creative. So here goes, a week of
my favourites...

Cute and quirky timber brooches and other jewellery pieces by Perth based artist and illustrator. Head to the etsy store to see more. Click here.

More timber brooches. I made a purchase this time. A little pink, lace-patterned bird brooch for $22. Click here for more designs.

One of me favourite stalls was Paperklip. I didn't buy many things at Finders Keepers-- I was mostly looking and being inspired. I couldn't resist making a little purchase here though. Melinda from Paperklip makes paper garlands, gift tags and other crafty bits and pieces from vintage and new decorative papers. I bought a blue-hued butterfly garland for $19 (which I haven't quite decided where to hang yet) and another garland which is a neutral-toned (creams, whites, some soft pinks & beiges) and is a collection of hearts, flowers & flags which was also only $19 and is now draped across my dressing-table mirror looking ever-so-fine.

Click here if you can't resist owning a garland of your own. And here for Melinda's website/blog and read more about her work.

That's all for today. More finds tomorrow. Have a lovely monday, with hopefully no monday-itis feelings. See you tomorrow...
