Purple and Yellow = Happy Colours!

What a lucky girl I was this week to receive the most absolutely gorgeous bunch of flowers. They were  a belated birthday present from a dear friend and my goodness they have made me happy. I have been oohing and aahing over them at every opportunity and the stunning colours have inspired me to make a happy little spring display.
The colours tie in beautifully with the Bunting I already had hanging in the window, don't you love it when these things just magically happen! 
 How sweet is this little spotty cup...and it's from Coles. Thanks to my friend Emma who alerted me to the fact Coles had them.
I adore these Kashmiri papier mache bangles from one of my all time favourite stores, Tree of Life.
 I've even added yellow to my nail polish collection, but it's ok because its Pastel!

Can you tell I love colour? What colour combinations float your boat?

three green bottles...

I've had these buddha beer bottles for ages now and today I finally dragged them out from the cupboard under the sink and put them to good use. I adore purple and green so it's just lucky that I treated myself to these purple carnations a few days ago, they go perfectly. It was a grey old afternoon outside but they really brighten up the window sill I think, bringing spring inside.
 Meanwhile my boyfriend has made this amazing welcome sign, just on a whim! My nextdoor neighbours chopped a tree down and we were able to collect a few logs (for future projects I have up my sleeve) and a couple of thinner pieces like this. I adore the bunny and cat which represent our little boys, Cookie and Oliver.
My pretty flowers. I more often than not have carnations in the house as they are usually really inexpensive so they make a cheap treat, they come in lots of lovely colours and they last for ages, bonus! But honestly I love all flowers and could easily have them all through the house,in every room.
