Mokum material

Must get my hands on this Mokum fabric and sew some new cushions.

Just dreaming.....

Absolutely love this little gem in Wamberal. Tried to convince Phil to sell ours and buy this for us! (however it was on the small size and there were no water views!!!!)

Kids wall art idea

I would like to incorporate some of my kids art masterpieces on a big wall down the hall near their bedrooms. (not the very bright ones though!) It would look great and I know they would love showing it off!

Kids playroom ideas


Our little cavoodle.

Clever laundry ideas

Bamboo Herb pots

Simple and chic! these bamboo baskets (from any asian grocer) are cheap as chips - and what a statement!

Pink pomegranate jewel salad

All you need is a bed of rocket, over which you scatter torn prosciutto,
shaved parmesan cheese,blobs of cream cheese and pomegranate seeds.
Finish with some balsamic and a little oil.

Amelia K Designs - New Personalized Baby Artwork

For my new little niece. I framed just one of the artwork's (Love Tree Poster) found in my online store: (The other two prints are packaged in a clear sleeve with a backing board - to ensure safe travels world wide). I'm sure little Sophie (and new parent's) will love them!

David Trubridge light in our front entry

We have five metre ceilings in our front entry and I fell in love with this light. It's got a great impact and casts the most amazing shadows at night! Hubby took great pride in assembling it too.

“This form is based on the structure of a geometric polyhedron. Every piece is identical, making home assembly easy. The way it grows outwards with fingers reminds me of coral. I love to snorkel over reefs exploring the amazing detail and structure of all the various corals. Our kitsets significantly reduce freighting, which is one of our ways of doing what we can to help preserve our beautiful sea and land environments.” - David Trubridge


These are the plants I selected last year for our front yard. Still waiting for the star jasmine to day?

One day......

........when we win lotto I'd love to have an "escape weekender cottage" at the foothills of Berry (or surrounds); with amazing views of course! I'd love to buy an old cottage with loads of charm and re-vamp it. It would be a family getaway (a great project) and also could be rented out to holiday makers later down the track. Even though I'm a modern girl at heart I do love period features and the old country world charm. Ill keep dreaming...........

Our house

Occasionally Ill post some random shots of our house.
Here's one from the front entry.

Bird cages

The bird cage decals (which my daughter chose) for her room. We are waiting patiently for them to arrive (with daily checks to the post box)! Will post her "updated" room soon. (when I get around to photographing it.)

Should be the motto for life

Yummo - for a no-carb eating menu

basil, lemon and garlic roasted chicken

Beautiful colours

I think Im drawn to these colours - aquas and yellows. They seem to be scattered around my house. Loving the photography by ara133photographys in the prints above. Might have to buy some and add to my walls.....somewhere....

Officially my next project

This has really inspired me to update my look near our master bedroom and re-vamp it - so it's a little less boring and more inspiring (like the above image). I already have some letters and have bought some different frames. The images in one of the frames will be from my Grandma (a drawing from her school days); and I also have a plate (although a little ugly) from my mum's Nonna. I want to also add some B/W photos and some lovely artwork from Etsy (on my next blog).

Will be attempting this effect in our hallway (one day)

This is such a smart effect (very glamorous and stylish!) and would look divine in our hallway. Have to find the right contrasting shimmer paint and also some time (kid free).

Another project..

And another project to add to my huge list already - a stool for the bathroom. Now I just have to find a 2nd hand one to revamp as I already have the mexican oilcloth fabric chosen.

Loving these fabric mixes.

Promise this is the last one....

It's just that I somehow have so many things to add today for some bizarre reason?
I have a whole list of beautiful items yet to add too. (but will wait till June!!)
This place Ive got to get to with my lil family! It's on my to do list for a nice winter lunch and winter walk on the beach.

One more post for today..

Feel like I have added way too many blog posts in the one month.
But this - I just love. I am going to attempt to make this for my laundry (and maybe instead of the zig zags I'll cover the MDF in some designer off to Bunnings I must go.....hi ho hi ho......


I'm loving this interior look. I ended up finding the exact matching rattan coffee table on Ebay for a bargain price of $120 and I love it. (It was my birthday present!)
Now Im trying to find the 3 lights/lanterns above the kitchen bench. That's to be added onto Santa's list.

Felt monogramed pillows

Will attempt to make these! hopefully before the year is out (and I know just where it will go!).
Now I just have to decide which letter.....hmmmmmm.......

Fabric door stop or decorative pears

These are so cute. Will have to make some of these.

Office in a cupboard idea

To help get my art studio set up downstairs Im wanting to convert our guest room into a kids lounge space and putting my office into the cupboard - so it can be hidden and out of little hands way. Heres some lovely inspiring ideas.
