Special Places and Things

On the weekend my husband and I had some kid free time so we thought we would head out to a newish shop called Revival Hill! I had been keeping an eye on this store/warehouse for a while and have been itching to see what Cath Hill, owner of Revival Hill had created. Well, it did not disappoint! Cath has put together a fabulous collection of vintage furniture handpicked from Denmark, where she visits a few of times a year. Check out their website here but I highly recommend physically going into the warehouse and having a walk around and have sit on some those chairs, it really is a place you just want to hang out in.

We were very excited to have picked up this beautiful rose wood sideboard. I have been on the hunt for a sideboard for a long while now and I think that this one is one of the nicest I've seen, I particularly like the non shiny finish of it.

I think it goes quiet well with our vintage map of Australia and the ukulele's!

.....and I couldn't leave without these candle sticks, I'm a sucker for turquoise!

So thanks to Cath Hill from Revival Hill for opening an awesome store for us Perth peeps to source cool furniture at reasonable prices! Hooray!!! xxx

I went on a solo adventure last week to visit my lovely friend in Melbourne. No kids or husband just little old me!
We drank, ate, shopped and went on a little road trip. It was super fun but I think the highlight was finding some very impressive vintage warehouse's in Mornington. My friend and I were in heaven!
I took a bunch of photo's of one of the places we visited called The Vintage Shed .There was just so much stuff and it was all really well priced I thought. If only I had a Mary Poppins Bag I could have brought home a shop full of goodies!!!

 It was truly impressive and we didn't even get time to check out the vintage clothing shed! I'll definitely going back there next time I visit.
I'll post again soon on some of the treasures I got xx

My smallest babe and I participated in a bit school holiday craftiness the other day. It was really lovely to do a class with her because as the second child she's kinda missed out on the endless classes I did with my big babe. Any hoodle I thought I'd share what we got up to.

Here is Elka's design she had worked on the night before.

Babushka ready to roll.

She rolled it!

Finally a beautiful cuddly Babushka Doll.

Awwe and then wiped out, I think from all that rolling?!
I hope you have all had a bit of fun lately doing something crafty xx

Inspirational Wednesday's!!

Hello out there! I thought I'd start sharing what's inspiring me each week! Cause it's that time of week when you need a bit honey to get you through the rest of the week, don't you think? Soooo I just picked up my copy of Dumbo Feather. Such a great mag if your not familiar with it check it out! They interview very inspiring and interesting folks and share their stories. I find it so inspiring to hear other people living their passions, their truth and being brave and courageous to follow what they believe in. Now this brings me to a very, very interesting interview with Brene' Brown. She talks about her amazing research into people doing just that! People who live fully and wholly and who let themselves live vulnerably and creatively. Check out this cool TED talk by Brene',  she will explain it so much better than me and I think you'll really dig it!

Don't you love being inspired by awesome creative chicks!
I love it when it fills me up with I bit of hope that I can fullfill my dreams, even the ones no one knows about. Do you have those kind of dreams? The dreams you can't even say out loud because the ears that they fall upon may hold you accountable to carry out that crazy dream?! I may have a couple of those kind of dreams....maybe just maybe. The sharing of dreams and desires is a very personal thing isn't it?  They come from our hearts, from the same place we paint, dance, sing, cook, love......from where we create. Awwwe geeze I just feel all good inside!
Now I'll tell you why I'm banging on about all this stuff is because I'm reading "Conversations with Creative Women" by Tess Mcabe. I'm really enjoying it! It's full of practical advice and leaps of faith by real women doing their thing. I love that kinda stuff!!! Real people sharing their stories! You can get your copy here

Conversations with Creative Women - Book Launch at Harvest Workroom
I hope you are all are living out some of your dreams. Squeeze them in any way you can or just JUMP! WEEEeeeeeee!!!! What a ride it can be!
I leave you with another amazing women, Lisa Hannigan, she's livin it!! She is my new favourite!

Ok guys a lot has been happening and yes it has been a while between bloggidy blogs! But check out what we've been up to! I've been scouring and collecting some cool pieces for the store. So I thought ya'll might enjoy some before and after shots!
I had been searching for these scrolled cane chairs for awhile because I think they are just gorgeous! They remind me of summer holidays, boho cool, sun bleached hair and lusciously tanned skin! Every time I sit in them I feel like reading a book and sipping iced tea. Oh! how refined I am!!

So here they are before....

And after.....

This last photo is a bit dark (my iphone photography needs work!) but I wanted to get a shot with the Marigold Flower Rug by Armadillo & Co as they make a great ensemble!

Here's some more babies I picked up that are currently under refurbishment.

You'll just have to wait to see the finished product!
