My Creative Space..

I'm very much enjoying the last few days of my holidays before I have to get back into the swing of things and get my year 12 students ready for exams. Besides catching up on some much needed time with my journal, I've been painting, reading and I've even been on a delightful picnic with my hubby. It has been so lovely to relax and be creative again..

And yesterday I was so delighted when the mail arrived...

I finally bought some Polaroid film from The Impossible Project and have a little project of my own planned for this lovely film. I just love hearing that fabulous Polaroid sound.

I hope you are having a lovely Thursday. Pop over to Kirsty's to check out all the wonderful creative spaces.

Much Love

My Creative Week...

Over this delightful week, I have embraced the lovely Spring sunshine and rekindled my creative soul.

It began with a desk full of vintage lace, crochet, ephemera and an idea..

Add a little dye, paint and a sweet little book on fashion iconography for inspiration..

The result... Ms. Antoinette. Inspired by my favourite colour and the delightful woman herself, it was so much fun to explore fashion in a new light.

I enjoyed creating Ms. Antoinette so much I instantly found myself searching for another canvas.

Ms. Chanel.. inspired by Coco, her iconic suit and string of pearls.

I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings..

Happy Creating
Much Love

So this is what a weekday is like..

Wow, if this is what Tuesday is really like, I'm never going back to work again! It was so lovely to spend some time meandering around the local op shops with an inspiring flea market apprentice, then enjoying the Spring sunshine, sushi and delightful iced tea.

After a fabulous adventure full of great finds which I will share with you tomorrow, I spent the afternoon amongst the pages of my journal and pottering around my house, listening to some lovely tunes, scribbling thoughts and taking in the glorious time of day I so often miss out on.

I just love opening my journal and feeling like I'm at home amongst its pages and the right music just sets the mood for the perfect place to escape for the afternoon.

This is a little vignette I created this afternoon with some of my favourite pieces from Rose Harvest, including the lovely hat block and my favourite typewriter.

I hope your Tuesday was delightful!
I'd also like to wish Happy Birthday to my beautiful hubby, the shining star in my life.

Much Love

Flea Market Finds..

Good morning and a very happy Sunday! The tea is brewing and the sun is shining so in my little cottage it is a happy morning indeed. I hope your week has been fabulous and flea market finds have been plentiful. To check out everyone's finds from last week pop over here. There were some fascinating discoveries.

So I had a few great finds this week, one of which I showed off yesterday. It has been a little while since I had a really good rummage for some cute retro dresses and I hit the jackpot at Salvos on Monday with some very cute pieces for Spring. Something else I'm always on the lookout for this time of year is jewellery. Spring always seems to bring out the gypsy in me and I love searching for eclectic bracelets and bangles to brighten up my world after a winter wardrobe made up of almost entirely of black. So I thought I'd share a few of my favourite finds.

A mismatch of bangles from Cararra Markets, Eumundi Markets and even a few from Paris. The little Iris necklace in the background is one of my all time favourite discoveries from a car boot sale when I was on holiday in the UK.

So what have you found this week? Or perhaps you might like to share something old too. To play along just leave a comment and add your flea market blog post link in the Linky below so we can all check out your goodies. Remember you can play any time during the week! And please feel free to upload your fabulous finds to the Flea Market Finds flickr pool too.

Happy Sunday!

Four Years Ago Today..

"If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here"

"Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
Still my heart this moment
Or it might burst"

"Could we stay right here
Until the end of time
'Til the earth stops turning
Wanna love you 'til the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for.."
Lyrics from Gorecki by Lamb

Four years ago, on a lovely Spring afternoon, I walked down the isle to this song and married the love of my life..

Wishing you a most romantic Thursday
Much Love

Flea Market Finds..


Happy Sunday! Well the rain has cleared and the sun has come out, perfect for a Flea Market Finds Spring adventure. Hope your weekend has been delightful and filled with vintage goodness. To check out last week's finds pop over here.

My hubby and I took full advantage of the lovely weather this morning and went searching for some sweet flowers to fill the vintage trunk I discovered a few months back.

We found a nice sunny spot in the front yard for the trunk and filled it with gorgeous blossoms. I am just adoring Spring already!

Happy Weekend..

via tumblr

Happy weekend! What have you been up to? So far I've danced in the rain to the fabulous band King Cannons, enjoyed the best french toast in town for breakfast with the lovely hubby and spent a wonderful afternoon amongst wild ideas, sketchbooks and pirate owls with my best friend. It is windy and raining outside now, so tonight my hubby and I have decided to stay in, curl up and read a good book or two.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend too!
Much Love
