Backyard fashion shoot

On a wet and grey Easter monday a magical fashion shoot took place in my soggy backyard. My beautiful & dear Irish friend Saoirse blossomed into a fairy as my model and between us we created some pretty, colourful and enchanting outfits. Oh how I wish we wore these clothes every day! 

What fun we had in the rain! Please enjoy xx

Little vintage finds

Last week while op shopping with my crafty partner in crime, Miss Emma I found these sweet litlle treasures. I just love it when u find gems hidden amongst the dusty shelves, and the grand total for these,$7!

Pretty colours everywhere!

Feeling inspired and with a bit of spare time on my hands, I finally decided to pretty up my older style rented home.
I am so in love with this battered and broken old chair which was a roadside find, it was even already splattered with paint and filled with character. The vintage tea cup and saucers were from a local op shop and the pastel flowers a gift from my thoughtful boyfriend.
My most recent project was transforming this old 2nd hand frame which was grimy gold and caked in dust, into a pretty, shabby chic must have. The cards and lanterns are from Typo, which has to be one of my favourite stores.
 A wider view.
 A makeshift desk includes some of my many candy coloured craft materials.
A corner of my very 'red' and very 'wooden' kitchen, at least I can get a few of my colours involved.
 Part of my laundry. I really don't mind its retro charm and lovely teal/turquoise colouring. The peg tin is from Aldi of all places, couldn't resist!
Burgundy bathroom, my ultimate nemesis, how I hate thee! There is not much I can do in here but add a bit of sugary pink! The little glass bottles were from a $2 shop.
So many products, what else to do other than arrange them in colour order lol!
A quilt I have been working on forever, thrown over the lounge.
 My ultimate inspiration, a lovely Rainbow.
