Captain, have you any smoked glass?
Around The Moon, Jules Verne 1870.

See it’s been around for like, ever, but suddenly I’m seeing smokey glass bottles everywhere. Well, chain store decorating shops to be more clear.

Go for the original stuff, way more appealing, quite Mid Century Modern which is my favourite style [although I am partial to a bit of Shitty Chic ala Samantha Jones at the Hamptons, Sex In The City].

If there was a Glassware Beauty Pageant this would win Most Sexy pants down.

I need to get out more…


Florence Broadhurst meet my staple gun. Its electric.

And totally rocks a Signature Prints sale.
What a lovely lucky bunch of ladies, surrounded by all that retro gorgeousness.

Even if you don’t know of Florence Broadhurst you’ve probably been in a room with one of her iconic images over the years.
She was, among many things, a Wallpaper Queen. Now you can get her classic designs as fabrics also. And/or read her fascinating story. Its beautiful to look at as well as being a great read. Definitely.

This is a version of Peacock Feathers.

Here’s a few more wallpaper designs. Love love love the Bamboo too.

To quote Rachel Zoe, which I usually don’t.
I die.

I did.


I also made this print from Flo Bro’s Japanese Floral wallpaper $40 a metre [usually sold per roll] and a frame from Officeworks. $35.


This my other favourite Florence. Feel free to share yours.

Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) [Leo Zero Remix] from the Ministry of Sound Chillout Sessions XIII

Inspired by my little girl starting ballet today, I decided to show some pink bits.

But all I have to say in the end is what Da Funk?

A big day in the house. Props & Wardrobe for Shwarzkopf with the lovely Jesinta Campbell and the awesome team at Oxygen 360.

Tired I am. Sleep I must. Yoda I am not.


Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile,
While you’ve a Lucifer to light your fag,
Smile, boys, that’s the style.
What’s the use of worrying?
It never was worth while, so
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile.

Here’s to our Champions. Lest we forget.

Back to school tomorrow in case you didn’t know.

Playtime closed.

Noticed the typo? More school definitely required…

It’s usually cheese thats got my money, last night it was chocolate, 2 blocks of, but I did share.
You get the picture, enuff said.

Here’s someone far better at it than me.
Thanks Est for that link.


Oversized [approx 30 cm] Little Tykes plastic money box.


It also needs to be said my son watched Men In Black for the first time which is why  I had the song in my head.

Little tubby and a fine boner. [China of course]

2 things I found on the same day. Left questioning my sanity but I do love this image.
