Im back! Our computer was couriered away to be fixed. Took over a month and low behold, they cant fix it. Its fair to say we rely on computers a lot. I struggled to get blog work and school work completed on my phone. I suppose it was good to have the break. Over that time, we've had school holidays, a big 5 year old birthday, Frankie starting school, myself starting a new job at her school, also and we had a magazine come and photograph our home last week. Its been all go and Im struggling to catch a breath. Life huh! Anywho, massive apologies for the lack of posting and communication. I will make it all up to you, and drop me a line if you are wanting to touch base with me. I am here and ready now!
This house, situated in Sydneys Paddington suburb, catches my eye in so many different ways. However, the major selling point for me is the central garden courtyard and the huge bi fold doors that open out onto it. Each of the living areas open up onto this inner city courtyard garden. The fact that architects Aileen Sage have blocked out the hustle and bustle of the outside world to create this beautiful oasis is a massive thumbs up. City living at its best.
I am a sucker for beautiful fabrics. Always have been. Having a daughter is a good excuse to stock up on pretty materials. I put them away with the intention of creating something one day. Usually Frankie finds them and ends up making blankets for her dolls. Good looking blankets might I add. I was stoked when I recently discovered the work of artist, Maggie Lam of Tiny Dots. Maggies designs contain timeless, classical patterns with a bit of whimsy in a range of gorgeous colours and all fair trade and ethically made. Pop over and check out Tiny Dots here.
I am loving Scandinavian kids clothing brand, Papu, now available in New Zealand from Scandinavian Clothing Co. Full of beautiful colours and quirky designs, Papu combines creativity, fun and functionality. And super comfortable might I add. That's a must for my children being the busy little bodies that they are. Frankie and Patch give this brand their tick! Scandinavian Clothing Co also stock some other very cool Scandi brands. Loving the fact that we don't miss out on these cutting edge designs. Happy shopping.
