Finders Keepers Wrap Up

Hurray! I did manage to sneak away from the fam over the weekend to check out the Finders Keepers Market after all! And I'm glad I did because it was "tops"! Here are my favourite finds...

1. Puddin'head
Gorgeous hand printed linens by Richard McAdam, sold as is or stretched onto canvas or made into cushions. Really loved these hand embroidered versions below.  Check out the site here.
 


2. A Skulk of Foxes
Stunning original jewellery designs. Check out their site here.
 
This clock was my favourite piece. I have just the spot for it too. One for the birthday list I guess... sigh


 
3. Two Layers of Cells
Limited edition lighting designs by Jane Crappsley. So many cool ideas! But the best one of all had to be the DIY Lightwrap Kit (below). It comes with all the elements, including the textas, for your kiddo (or you if you like) to draw and colour your own uniquely you design onto your lightshade. Genius! Check out more of Jane's work here...
 


4. Page Thirty Three
Last but not least, PG33. How divine is the jigsaw puzzle piece plate? And yes, the plates to fit together, so you can run three in a row as a platter or just get cosy with the one you sit beside at the next dinner party... Gives new meaning to sharing a plate huh? Love this design! Have a look at the rest of the Page Thirty Three range here.


Art in the lead...

 Not exactly a project I'd take on myself, but inspired none-the-less. Take a look at the artworks of Dalton Ghetti. The man has the patience of a saint I tell you. He hand carves each masterpiece from graphite pencils with a blade and a needle his only tools! Amazing...


Better be quick

Don't forget the Noosh sale ends on May 31st. Stock of some fabrics have already sold out! Hope you aren't leaving your purchases till the last minute! Go now!

Delicious drawers

One word for you - stunning. These drawers have buckets of style and character and would look good in any colour. Perhaps the owner couldn't decide which way to go? However they came to this idea, they've made a bold decision and it works so well!

Citrus bedroom blast

Yellow and orange are hot right now - and while the weather cools down, warm colour palettes are a great solution for decorating quandries. This first one with the bold and striking yellow feature cabinetry is my favourite - and that chocolate rug negates any fears of the space looking cold adding a dash of cosy comfort and a spot to kick back and spread out...



Blue isn't just for boys

Welcome to the second installment of teenspace ideas. This time the focus is on blue. As a mum to two boys, blue is heavily front row and centre on the radar, but it doesn't have to be that way. Blue can work just as well in a girls space - it's all in the way you apply it. Anyway, even if blue isn't your thing, there are some great ideas here worth stealing or putting on the back burner for later when wee ones get older.





The BEST party ideas

When birthday time comes around at our house I spend my nights dreaming about high impact - low fuss party ideas. I learnt my lesson this year by making 12 stick horses for the kids to race around the garden. The day was really hot, the kids didn't want to run or ride and the whole project didn't fall into either category. But today, my dreams may have become a reality... Enter One Charming Party

Hugh has been at me since his last party about wanting to have a superhero party. I even made him his own superhero cape to get him off my back! So I was super-pleased to find this little gem... OCP sells party plans for around $25 which include more invitations, thank you notes, game ideas, cake toppers and printables than you can poke a ray gun at. Have a look!
Cake: Nothing too tricky there... Especially when a PDF arrives in your inbox with all the cute signs to go on top!

Games: Who wouldn't want to play this!

The banner looks like a keeper!

And they might even eat some healthy food!

Sara and Brittany, you are heaven sent! Pop over for a gazillion more fab ideas, a lovely blog and stunning pictures. Hey, you might even want to throw a party!

Finders Keepers...

It's that time of year again - The Finders Keepers Markets are on this weekend in Sydney at the Carriageworks - and what a pretty poster! It sums up the market perfectly with it's vintage vibe, illustration-ey, layery, happy thing going on. If you've never been (and I actually haven't!) here's your chance. I'll be there scouting the stalls for the perfect gift for my incredible girlfriend's milestone birthday this weekend (nothing like leaving it till the last minute...) I'll also be scouting for some inspirational finds to bring to you over the coming weeks! Maybe I'll see you there? Ooh, and before I forget - check out their blog as well!

Plates of art

More style from the home of Lisa Sherry I'm in decor-lust with this wall of plates! And I have just the spot for it!

Mood Board: Pretty in Boho


When I stumbled across this quilt on Urban Outfitters I thought the colours were so pretty that I just couldn't get the mix out of my head. So, I made you a mood board. If I had a room that needed painting it would certainly be getting this colour combo treatment...

Salvation Jane - A new favourite

Familiar? Actor, Jane Hall can now add "blogger" to her list of achievements. It's a lovely place to visit and is fast becoming one of my faves. Salvation Jane is all about making your digs homely, colourful and personal without spending your next months salary. 

Jane's home was recently featured in Real Living (another personal favourite) and her style is charmingly warm and eclectic. 

Another reason to visit is her projects. This is the Love Heart Wall Jane created for her daughter Miss L's bedroom (who she says wishes her mother would stop redecorating her room!). You need to stop by Salvation Jane and have a read. I think I might love her.

Decor tips from Angie Hranowsky

Her style is impeccable and her advice is gold. Here's a few snaps of her daughters bedroom design from the new issue of Lonny to get you in the mood...


And her advice...

Lonny Alert - May/June issue is LIVE! And it's goooood.

Okay. This issue is HOT. Too much good stuff to share at once! 

First, there's Editor-in-Chief,  Michelle Adams' office makeover. You must have a look - it's to die for. Who couldn't be creative in that space I ask you?


Then there's Decorator Lisa Sherry's home - yummy.

Pièce de résistance of which is her daughter Pearl's nursery

And Lisa's decorating advice...



But don't take my word for it - grab a cup of tea and check out the whole issue for yourself!
