Sugar Coated.

Hmmmm....may be a tad hormonal, but am just loving all the candy colours at the moment. Here's some more fresh and fun interiors of some gorgeous beach houses from Coastal Interiors. Colour against an all white backdrop just really lifts the spirits and as long as it is tempered with natural fibres and elements such as cane, rattan and wood it is never too much. I have the most gorgeous cane chairs in the shop at the moment. I almost wish no one buys them (ha!) so I could sneak them home. Love the fabric...fresh and happy. Very quirky all the fringing on the lounge. Love the Candy Apple with the blue and then a hit of yellow to offset the blues and picks up the lemons and brings in the eclectic collection of jugs and bowl in the background.
Perhaps a tad too much blue and green here, but all is forgiven because I would sell my left kidney for this house!!
P.S if this was my two they would be wrestling each other while swinging from the bannister's!
Colour here but a little faded with a vintage edge...denims and soft raspberry and green with vintage recycled furniture..Very nanna and lovely.
Yes Please!!! There goes my other Kidney ha!ha!

Big Boy

Emerson's Birthday It was my little baby's fourth birthday yesterday...and mummy took a long overdue day off and spent the day doing whatever my 4 year old wanted to do (with some passive guidance of course) Pancakes with cream & bacon! Then off to Emporium for Milkshakes at Bella Epoque and over the road to his favorite toy shop....He was given his choice of presents and I was smiling with his very humble selection. We all spend so much money on our children, but I found out yesterday that given the choice a 4 year old wants in no particular order 1. A pony on a stick to run around with (very old school) 2. A witches hat 3. A container and stick of bubble blowing stuff and 3 small plastic African animals....wilder beast, cheetah and baby lion. That was it!!! No Ben 10 No transformers, no huge plastic monstrosity...all open play toys that he will need to use his imagination for....I might let them choose more often instead of letting Marketing Executives sway me into buying some block buster movie merchandising. Now onto a small little party for 4 friends and a cute theme. Found these on Martha Stewart aren't they lovely. Wish I had the time to whip this up and the pink is obviously not appropriate (just having girl envy again) but I do like the golf themed one. So pretty for that little girl that doesn't particularly like fairies.
E is for EMERSON.....Happy birthday Mischief
This is the ' Oh I just did something really, really naughty but if I bat my eyelashes and smile you will never be able to be mad at me' look.
