Happy Birthday Husbando

It's LPs birthday on Monday and I've been straining my brain trying to think of what he needs.

I'm off from work (sleeping, watching tv, sleeping, eating, sleeping) so I mustered up the energy to make my darling husband a birthday card. Unfortunately I still don't have an operational camera, so I am iphone pix all the way.

It's acrylic paint on quilting fabric, I've made springs so they move around.

I have bought him a small present from Ralph Lauren, but feel like I should have a whole bag of goodies..... HMMMMM Why are boys so hard!?

After struggling to find anything of interest at the Lover Jumble sale this weekend (sadly a far cry from the last one- where I managed to find multiple Lover "classics"- that I ended up selling on ebay for a profit sometime later anyways) I was delighted to see this article online for smh when I woke up this morning.

1. Because of the divine red lace dress. Absolutely amaze.

2. Because I'm excited to find the brand in a more accessible format. Yes, a small bye bye to their exclusivity blah blah. But this means Stocktake sales will see jumble-sale esque prices in the future, and the ability to try on Lover on a Thursday night shopping trip to Chaddy. yay! Let it be said, good or bad, I love the David Jones shopping experience.

Boys Own Adventure

My lovely new Bromley throw. This is the design I went with, love love.

I'm trying to come up with a not too heavy hanging solution...
contempating popping it between two sheets of perspex.

Au revoir Reality + Renovation..

Posing with Props!

Another show wraps.... after two insanely busy days we had our (very messy) wrap party last night. Ouch. Show kicks off on air Monday and I can't wait to see how it comes together.
It's been fun.

So, As of next week, I am officially unemployed! I am so excited to start the billion or so lil craft projects I have bubbling away at the back of my brain whilst we wait to kick off to China... or possibly Tokyo! woo. A month off at home beforehand - first time ever to just bum around. Excitement Plus.

I also had some exciting news this week which I will blog about at a later date. Yipeeyeee!

Colourful Throws

Almost all gone, from one of Melbourne's most beautiful stores.

The agonising is over - I finally gave in and purchased one of David Bromley's beautiful hand stitched Quilts. Glad I waited because I ended choosing one that I havn't previously seen
(agnosised over)

I'm going to stretch it up on some dowling, hang it and then I'll post!

I've picked up a few things in my time at 9, homely items, and I must make a dedicated post. In two weeks I'm off work until we head to china, so Ill no doubt be posting like a madwoman with too much time on her hands.

Things I'd Love.. Missoni on sale

Slightly cultish Missoni cardigan
Definitely has a bit of far flung hippy commune mind control vibe... but in a good way!

This fantastically fun Missoni coat.

Styled right... so cool!
Loving this scarf.. it's the adorable little orange triangles that won me over.
