Houdini & Hussy…

Not sure if it was really noticeable (!) but I haven’t said a bloggy word for quite a while! I’ve had a bit of a depressing few weeks and lost the will to lift my little digits to type, but all is looking up now! So, no more disappearing acts for the minute methinks…

Here are some gorgeous pieces of jewellery from Barbarian Hussy that even Conan would be jealous of!

Helena Sea Blue Ring, $42

Dakoda Bracelet, $59

Mahu Gold Cuff, $62

Natalia Bangle (3 Set), $56



The Wave Of Shame…

June 6, 2011 § 3 Comments

Boy, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands recently! During this sabbatical of sickness, I’ve had a lot of time to surf the information super-highway and have found two blogs that I just love. I’m probably late to the game and everyone knows all about these gems, but I’ve been enjoying Wave At The Bus, a fathers long-suffering, year-long attempt to humiliate his teenage son by dressing up every morning in different costumes to wave as the school bus travels past his house!

I’ve also been loving The Adventures of Superbaby, a photo-diary of an extreme baby-hero as shot by his photographer parents in interesting and often dangerous situations. He is truly amazing!

Check out these blogs for a good laugh! xo

Go Away!

Sickness, that is. Apologies for my consistent no-show this week and last, I am a sick little bee in a hive full of cold & flu.

Boo hoo! See you soon, me hopes!

(Me being sick and sad, and Warrick not caring a bit. Why do we have a fridge behind us you ask? Because we like to keep one within arms length at all times, silly!)

Oooooh I love rubber stamps! You could pay a mint for letter-press style stationery, or you could go ahead and invest in some really nice card, an inkpad, and a rather good stamp, like these darlings from Ink + Wit girl genius, Tara Hogan.

Bon Voyage Stamp, $18

Paris Je t'aime Stamp Set, $50

Observant Owl Natural Rubber Stamp, $22

C’mon, get stamp happy! And I mean it in every sense of the word 😉

Dear Emma,

Hi, I’m the gorgeous new Marlène Suitcase by Lalé.

My petit size means you can purchase me for your non-existent children or very existent laptop from Lark.

Bonne chance and au revoir (to your euros)!

Two Birds, One Stone…

I love when an object of function can become an object of beauty in it’s own standing. Traditionally, shadow boxes were the ‘thing’ back in the Victorian era, for the display of curios through a glass front. These Baroque Bookshelves from Graham and Green, (from £45), serve not only as a shelf for books, cd’s, dvd’s or curio, but become their own little artistic piece courtesy of it’s spunky picture frame. I really like the idea of non-permanent wall shelves, to be hung anywhere you like!

Ye Olde Water-Dispersing Methode…

I’m as confused as you with that heading. Sorry.

I am loving the cold and rainy weather we are having here in Melbourne! Pity our rental has no insulation whatsoever… it’s just lucky I have my own insulation in body fat to keep away the winter blues 😉

To coincide with the storms, drizzle, fog, mist, hail, cats and/or dogs, here are some of my favourite umbrellas from around the traps!

The fabulous ‘BANG!’ Umbrella, $29.95 from Raw Space

The cute and kitschy ‘Galleria Goldfish’ Umbrella, $25 from SunnyRainUmbrellas

The sweet Cameo Stripe Eliza Umbrella, £35 and the Birdcage Umbrella, £32 from Lulu Guinness

I’ll have any Chantal Thomass umbrella, (which are divine), including the one below. Price? *Expensive* from here or here.

And finally, a little relief for mums… no more juggling your umbrella! Hands-Free Stroller Umbrella, $49.99 from ThinkGeek
