Have a wonderful weekend everyone! We are hoping that summer will make an appearance at some point! This gorgeous image is from Uncle Beefy's Pinterest board (sorry about your computer Beefy - ouch!) Lots of amazing things to see at Pinterest and I love the way most of the images link back to the original source. Follow me here if you wish! See you Monday!

I spotted this here on Pinterest yesterday - I absolutely adore it - it has every element of design that I love and the styling is divine! Smitten! So now I am officially a 'pin head' I'd love it if you followed me on Pinterest - and I'll follow you back and we can share the inspiration!
I was very excited to get this yesterday. Flow magazine is a Dutch publication which is all about paper and pattern and all the inspiring stuff that goes along with it. They asked us a few weeks ago if they could use one of our cards as their cover - I was so flattered because I know how popular magazine it is (and how beautifully designed it is too!) Anyway - I love how they designed the cover around the image - it looks fab! Thanks Flow!

Hey, we got ourselves a whole page in this month's Romantic Homes Magazine! I was very excited to see Cafe Cartolina as the featured blog this month. And I love that they featured my great great grandma's snowdrop tea set - must tell my mother! They also featured my little pie safe with the biscuit tins, a great shot that Doug took in Fish's Eddy and a sweet little vintage egg cup set from Fan Tan Gallery in Victoria. Thank you Romantic Homes!

I was so excited when I found these at a weekend yard sale. A dozen large, old, honeycomb paper balls. They are quite faded but mostly in pretty good shape. I think they are probably from the 50s. They will make such great decoration for a market tent or a store window or just hanging as a group in the studio. And they really are big - about 15 inches across.

Did you have a good weekend? Do anything crafty or DIY? I'm a bit picky about DIYs - they can't look too make shift. I like this lamp a lot because it's unique and rustic and it looks so simple to make - courtesy of HGTV. All the directions are on their site - good luck - and if you make one - send me a picture!
