At home

Love the world wide web for ideas to do with the kids. With all the wet weather this summer - fresh ideas are very, very welcome!

free downloadable printable pinwheel from here

Simple idea but gorgeous from one of my favourite bloggers 

Completely random observation - has anyone else noticed how popular maps have suddenly become? And the price - crazy. School storerooms are sitting on a goldmine. This photo is from Bondville. The rest of Rowan's room has the same sweet vintage feel :)

Supergirl Party

There is something about this birthday party that really appeals to me. It is sweet, girly but also fun and adventurous. Different, not princessy. Love it! I think I may steal the idea for my 40th - which is a LONG way off :)

It is from this blog. I wish there were more posts on there. Love the sister's style!

Valentine's Day ...

Bee my valentine - how cute!! Will you be my love bug? The people at are seriously clever and seriously corny :)

Whilst you are there, have a look at their name label pack. Your supply of name labels may be like mine, needing some replenishments after being used for a few years.

This one made me laugh. Out loud. It must be late and I must be tired :)

Other cute Valentine's Day offerings ...

1. These would look great in red for Valentine's Day or for a party - or just for fun!

2. Gorgeous shopfronts

3. If you are really organised, celebrate the 14 days of Valentines.

4. This is my idea of a lovely gift for Valentine's day for your friendly neighbour, your friend, your mum
5. Finally, she is just gorgeous. Another generous blogger with a free downloadable template :)

Happy Valentine's Day! Have you come across something gorgeous to share?

Starting tomorrow ...

*Starting tomorrow* I'll eat more meals that I haven't created before. I fall into a rut of making the same favourite dishes over and over. Here are a couple that look fantastic and might get me enthused!  ...

(Superfood Salad by Teresa Cutter or The Healthy Chef)

I like this (via Sarah Wilson)

Talking about Sarah Wilson, her I Quit Sugar Diet looks good. Really good. I should start today ;)

Coffee Cup Obsession

Can one have too many coffee mugs? Well, yes. They do clutter up the cupboards. But boy oh boy there are some fun designs out there! Sometimes I choose the colour of the mug according to the mood I am in. More often than not I use a Cath Kidston one because if I get the chance to make a cup I indulge in a large one!

1 & 2 Cath Kidston
3, 4 & 5 McLaggan Smith - you must check out this site. I love the mug "Keep Calm and Kiss me Quick"

7. Scrabble, see link for no.8
8. Penguin Pride and Prejudice

9. Pantone

My Favourites this week

These are fantastic for kids at home - they are easy to clean and I am told, comfortable!

These are fantastic for babies at home, at the beach, on holidays, when visiting ... so handy :)

These are not only super to rest feet on, but also become a handy seat for little or big people. I am told it is even comfy as a cushion

You feel a little silly, but I am sure my posture is improving because of this

I could have her music playing all day, every day

I am really looking forward to the trade fairs coming up and seeing the new designs from some of my favourite Australian designers, especially Alimrose Designs and Cocoon Couture.

I am dreaming of going here, the place that is!

Amazing photographer whose images make you feel as though you are in the room with the subject

Lego, lego and lego. Can you imagine working in that office!
