Have a lovely week...

Hope it's as happy as this photo...

Keep Calm Gallery

I could imagine one of these framed, on the hall table in the entrance of my house.
They make me smile.

Andie's Specialty Sweets

Just by chance I stumbled along Andie's Specialty Sweets on Etsy today.
Yes, all of the below are edible!

Oello design

I love this soft and pastel design & packaging for Oello frozen yoghurt parlour. The skipping rope bag handle won me over... see more at The Dieline.

Rainy days...

After nearly two weeks of pouring rain the sun came out from behind the clouds this weekend. I love the feeling of the winter sun warming my skin & heart and reminding me of the summer to come.

And while I'm on the subject of rain, check out this too-cute cloudy cardigan from Elk.

Sweet Paul Summer 2011

If you haven't already, you should check out Sweet Paul's latest online magazine.
Full of delicious treats, D-I-Y's and such pretty photography too.

I'm liking the look of this Blueberry tart with Caramel Sauce:

D-I-Y ideas: new life for old tins

For those of you who are not familiar Paul's work, he is a NY based food and interiors stylist who blogs here. Definitely one to bookmark.

Places to dream in...

I seem to have collected a few dreamy/inspirational bedroom pics lately...

Here an old pallet has been used as a bedhead. Clever idea if you have the right space.


Chalk art

Amazing chalk art by Dana Tanamachi -such talent!
Gorgeous old-school typography...

Spotted via Twig and Thistle.


Stocked at Moochinside (see post below) are these beautiful pieces from Attia. Love the styling and photography. Makes me want a whole kitchenful of their simple, organic-shaped designs.

Hardys Bay, NSW

The weekend before last my husband and I spent a lazy afternoon at Hardy's Bay. We had lunch at The Fat Goose which is brilliant value for money for those seeking a delicious treat on a budget. I had pan fried smoked salmon fishcakes with wild rocket salad & dill yogurt sauce- YUM! The hub couldn't go past the man-sized all day breakfast.

We followed this with a stroll up the jetty and a peek inside my new favourite shop Moochinside. I wanted to buy everything but remembered the savings plan (for the new house) and bought nothing. I did come away with a birthday wish-list for next 
month though...

Here's Moochinside... ooh so many treasures...

New invites in the shop!

A rainy long weekend made for some perfect invite-designing time for my online stationery store Peppermint Press. I've made these designs as part of a new range suitable for letterpress printing. They could also be digitally printed of course. I'm pretty happy with these designs... what do you think?

Age old tree
Crazy in love
Love letters (I'm completely smitten with this new typeface)

Woodland whimsy (yes, ok so this one has been in the shop for a while but I've made this version a single-colour job- and I'm loving the cornflower blue.
