The Perfect Balance

I love this picture of Jones' ratio of saucers to dinner plates at their place. Came across it this morning while catching up on photos with twitpic.

Little Red Riding Hood

A rainy day was brightened by a lovely visit from my little niece.

Such a sweetie.

Monday House

A friend of mine is selling her old home and as I have so many fond memories of times spent there I thought to share some pics for my Monday house this week.

Beautiful wide verandahs that wrap around the front of the house.

The kitchen and an informal sitting room at the back of the photo.

A closer look at the sitting room.

One of the three bedrooms.

The pale pink walls are so pretty in here.

The main bedroom.

Love the glass paneled door into the en suite.

The study or fourth bedroom.

Doors open out onto the front verandah.

Main bathroom.

I heart VJs.

En suite bathroom.

Love the tiles and taps.

Internal laundry

Again, love the tiles and taps.

Living room.

Interested in the colours? Humour me, the walls are Warm Neutral, and the white is Whisper White, naturally.

Through the dining room and into the living room.

You only can just make it out but there is a beautiful built-in bookcase on the right.

Doesn't the backyard show off a perfect QLD day!

So there you have it, TTFN Kates Street house, what larks we've had.

Fi's Fabulous Find

My cousin Fiona has put me onto this wonderful store in the US. Even before our dollar started rising to the occasion I had begun toying with an order, now it's a certainty. I'll answer the million dollar question before you ask it, YES, they do ship to Australia (through mail forwarders Bongo International, read more about it here).

I think a smaller version of this mirror would like great in amongst framed art or photos on a picture wall.

I like this one too.

I've seen this porcelain box in Coco Republic.

I love this ceramic ginger jar.

$295 - $450 (depending on size)

I think these bone and wood frames are quite elegant. I'd probably put one of them in amongst a collection of silver/pewter and clear glass framed photos on a sideboard or a piano.

These lacquered boxes are my must have. If robin egg blue is not your thing, never fear there are all sorts of colour combinations to choose from. Have a look here.

$80 -0$280 (depending on size)

I love the lacquered trays too. Just to sit on a table or dresser looking beautiful or to use for serving afternoon refreshments or morning tea.

Hmmm, what to order first...
