Hope everyone had a good weekend. I had a great weekend - my Mum came over with these lovely treasures above (that I must clean) and she helped me with my curtains. Oh my goodness, they are so much work. I will post photo's when they're done.
I also went to my fave vintage store to check out the lamp I talked about earlier in the week - but it wasn't quite my taste. But I know it will go to a loving home.
Don't you love those silver trays in the photo above? Wouldn't they look fabulous with some dainty sandwiches on them?? And that little silver jug! I wish I could convey the squeals of excitement when I first unwrapped it. My grandma had such great taste.

Anyway, I'm so excited about the weekend, because my Mum is coming over to help me finish the curtains I'm making for my bedroom - but also, she's bringing with her some goodies she picked up at my Aunt's house a couple of weeks ago.
And the other reason I'm super excited is I ran into my favourite vintage store owner at woolies last night and she said she's sourced a fabulous cream and black vintage floor lamp for me!! I can't wait to go check it out on Saturday.
I'll take lots of pictures!

Reason I love Brisbane no. 85 - awesome shops like this!! Oh my goodness, all Brisbanites get down to West End and check out Nook! It's a little 'nook' of a shop showcasing some of Brisbane's indie artists and designers. They also have a blog showcasing all the treasures available in their store.
Photo's from another great creative site based in Brisbane the finders keepers.

Just wanted to post a little picture of my desk, which has found a home in my craft room (which isn't quite finished yet). It was one of my best vintage finds this year. It was white, but I sprayed it glossy black and put those crystal drawer knobs on it. I love it!

Yes, I may be blogging on a Saturday night - but we've finished painting the spare room today (also known as my craft room or she-shed and maybe one day a nursery). I did all the painstaking trims around the doors and windows. But now I'm looking for a bit of interior inspiration. ... What do you think about this place? Possibly a bit too cluttered for me, but I'm loving the feel of the place, the colours, textures and just its general whimsical spirit!
I love the random garland in the pic above and the wall piece which looks like some old doors.

I'm so glad I found these photos. I really needed to feel the love (although, I have to say, my husband is being so fabulous - making me breakfast without me requesting, picking me up from work - I love you baby!!)
