STILLS - A WEEKLY COLLECTION









1. Rainbow curtains for little Pips colourful room (see full room here). My mum made these beauties with striped fabric from IKEA. By far the most economical place to buy fabric for large scale projects - I used similar stuff for this project too.

2. A twice weekly ritual. Fancy Dave's fancy fresh bread. He always remarks with pride 'don't you just love knowing that your bread contains nothing but flour, water yeast and a little bit of salt'. For those of you who have asked, he will write down the recipe asap to publish here.

3. My beautiful Castle pieces are STILL waiting to be framed and hung. Oh time, why must you be so illusive?

4. A bevy of tan belts. I'm a bridesmaid for my soon to be sister next weekend and our vintage style dresses (made from vintage fabric by my talented mother in law) require a little belt action.

5. Baby beach toes. Oh THE CUTENESSSSSSS.

6. When I can't my mum absolutely can. And she does.

7. Living books by the Octopus's Garden. I'll share some more about these guys later in the week.

Hope your weeks have been colourful my friends! See you soon

    PS Baby D's mobile looks remarkably like the one you have in Pip's room. Which reminds me....I just get a hook to hang it! xx

  2. Oh a vintage wedding! That sounds like a dream :) and will no doubt be absolutely stunning! I agree with Ikea fabric. Love their range. I've made a few canvases from their fabric.

  9. How cute is your mum? Love her "ta-da" pose! You're so lucky to have a mum close by.
    My husband is the same as Dave with his breads (and pizzas doughs too). He is a scientist so I think that's why he feels so connected to products containing yeast ;)

  21. Oh the relief of folded washing! What is that lovely paint colour on the wall behind her. It looks like Wattyl Ruffles but I'd like to check as we are about to paint the town pale here too.

  24. Your room design looks pretty cool, you seem very happy, if you can prepare a spectacular brunch, for families with a pressure cooker, it's definitely a great thing.
