Happy Easter

Happy Easter! I love this time of year with warm days & crisp fresh nights.
I love that Easter is a celebration of new life, new beginnings. I find it quite motivating to rearrange & organise our home, to decorate & celebrate what we have.
To me it is a happy time, I hope it is for you too.
I'm loving fresh flowers especially dahlias that are in season, I must grow some of my own again for next year.
Our children had another Easter Hat Parade at their school & loved every minute of it. A lot of hot glue gun action was happening here.
Big excitement was had by me yesterday at our annual local Community Trash & Treasure event when I stumbled upon a set of Enid Blyton Hardcovers, just the type I have been collecting for years now, & hooray only $10 for the lot.
Shalom Passover to my Jewish friends.
Good times!

Front cover joy

The latest Green Magazine has hit the shelves & we are ecstatic about my husband David Boyle Architect scoring the front cover position. Inside is an awesome article titled From Two to One with many photos & great editorial regarding the clever subdivide he designed in the Sydney suburb of Marrickville. Not often are you lucky enough to work with a visionary of a client such as this one. I was commissioned by the client to design & upholster all her built in seats along with many scatter cushions from her amazing collection of fabulous mid century modern printed fabrics. Such great original printed bark cloth & satin jacquards.
I love this house.

Wall hanging

I'm enjoying this Beci Orpin wall hanging that arrived by post this week.
Another little purchase from Urban Outfitters. Such great colours & little embroidered sections. It really jazzes up the entry to our house.
