the not new black
is the new black over here



mourning this little vintage pie bird I dropped last week while reorganising my deep dark stash. He was a gift. And super cute.
Never did make that pie…

Colour doesn’t get much of a run in my house.
‘Does-It-Come-In-White?’ is my middle name.

But then, with a view like this, feature walls seem redundant…

We started off with a blank canvas.
You could call this canvas ‘Polar Bear In A Snow Storm’ or ‘Albino Rabbit In Macro’ or some other third thing [Spongebob movie anyone?].
Anyhow the white stayed.

When I do colour it’s usually ice-ice-baby blue. But something’s shifted. 180 degrees. I’m not trying to be negative [ha] but now I’m turning to black. I blame the bird [the non-Eames House Bird].

I’ve always worn black. Classic. Dramatic. Looks good with blonde hair. A no-brainer. The colour selection I mean, not the blondness…

Mimco Black $10 Sydney Airport

Now its creeping in like that inky thing in Spiderman 3. The Symbiote.

Vintage pie bird from Sister-In-Law Mel, goo from Eumundi Markets $2

Suede laser cut mats. Picked up at a closing down sale, Belrose last year.

Check this.

Waechtersbach, West German pottery bowls & small jug.

The bowls are not perfect, a hairline crack in one, a few chips here and there…
Still: – an insanely gorgeous design, I was thinking when I bought them I might use the bottom one as a planter [cracked] but I don’t think I can bring myself to do it. They look so great stacking. The jug is in great nick and was not what I’d call a bargain [$30] but I love this set so much I’m glad I bought the 3 pieces. Luckily my hubby doesn’t read my blog anymore.


I picked this up too. Later. Egg Cup, chipped but only $2. I love it. Small succulent from Wild Lotus Newport $3.

PS: Stay tuned for succulents. You succ much?

I’ll Never Sell salt and pepper shakers.

Told you I love jugs. the spotty one is an original 50s piece. Immaculate.

I do like black tea, sadly not as much as coffee though…
