A kitchen and a lamp (plus a shade)

Loving that gorgeous yellow wallpaper and that kitchen is absolutely gorgeous as well. I dream for a large kitchen where I don't have to move everything in and out to get a saucepan out of a drawer! On another happy note, a lovely customer sent me this picture of her lamp and shade - so gorgeous! Makes me happy seeing gorgeous things from the store being loved in other people's homes! Kellie x

Strange Habits

Luke and my best friend Kate are just perplexed why I love drinking out of glass jars rather than a traditional glass. I always say with the glass jar and the straw make the water taste much better. They both think i'm a bit mad because of it! I spotted this wedding and thought, this event has the same passion of jars as a drinking glass as me, and, the styling is just so mighty pretty!

Surprises at home...

It's been a busy, fun and hectic week with the launch of the online boutique, lots of things to do at home and working on other projects! I was delighted to come home to find sweet peas and hydrangeas all blooming away in our garden ready to be picked. Since I'll be doing lots of resting this weekend, I picked a few bunches and thought they were perfect on my bedside table so I could enjoy them all weekend long.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Kellie. xx

P.S More gorgeous lampshades will be available in the boutique next week.

P.P.S How pretty and such a gorgeous match are the hydrangeas with the darling velvet trim on my shade! Sadly just pot luck and not good management!

Afternoon thoughts...

Darling spring like spaces, teamed up with stylish fashion this afternoon. The gorgeous shot with the blooms reminded me I must head off to the flower markets this week to check if peonies are in yet. I'm on countdown mode to have a lovely bunch at home- one of my favourite parts of spring time! Kellie xx

A Personal Favourite!

I had a lovely reader ask about the zebra shade used in the little logo on my blog... I had this extra one made for me... Love the colour and it's so beautiful with my lamp. I felt like a little change in this little nook of our home and this one fit in beautifully.

On a side note thank you to everyone for all their kind support on the opening of the online boutique. I have been overwhelmed and cannot thank everyone enough. And to my family and friends thank you as well for your help, patience and making me laugh all those challenging times! Kellie xxx

Raining colour

It's raining and pouring paper pom poms and lanterns! How amazing is that colour and those flowers on the tables, so deconstructed and unexpected but so delightful nonetheless! I also adore paper lanterns outdoors as well, perhaps this year our little tree out the back will the tall enough to hang lovely trinkets from this summer. Kellie xx
